http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0269492/

Mexican production with a mainly gringo cast (and Evaristo Marquez of Burn lonely fame:  could that explain the original title?) and partially also crew. Interesting to note that the credits declare there was a second unit shooting in Rome: I wonder the why of this as I didn'tnotice anything to justify the assertion.
Boring, draggy almost no action, with long shootings of the desert (I think LoA was more of an influence than Leone). The story is lame: two gravediggers earn their life by collecting IOY for their work. The younger falls in love with a girl who is the partner in crime of a her man. Marquez is a blue soldier who also falls for her. There's a holdup of the usual government money in full desert which could remind of GBU. But I can't see an element which makes the movie worth watching if not the preamble. The funky score is of the kind used at the time for blaxploitations or porn movies. 5\10.

IOY?  Huh

I love the alternate title, for what it's worth. Very little, I'm sure...

I've sat on a dvd of this for a couple of years without watching it.

I guess it can wait another 2 years. Grin

On the contrary, I would appreciate your review, as I seem to be alone (judging from reviews at IMDB) in considering it below par.
