A good cast wasted on a too uninventively concocted  story, which blends two typical sw plots: the revenge and the gang which wants to rob a bank. Lawrence returns from war to find his parents dead, killed by a gang of four he sets out immediately to kil after having shedded his non-violent attitude whjich had him cost prison during the war. One of them is the leader of a gang (Lulli) who after a failed hold-up to a bank awaits for the money to be delivered. Lawrence finds a helping hand in a  fast-handed preacher (Ireland). A series of double and triple crosses follows. An element of originality (but not a very good one) is the evasion of some madmen (one of them is Fajardo in his most embarassing performance) from jail who spread terror in the town.   As noted at the italian SWDB, there are too many inconsinstencies in the plot (the one most annoying me being why Lulli, being served 3 times the chance to kill Lawrence abdicates for no apparent reason). But that is something one could tolerate were it compensated by other better executed elements which I can't find anywhere. Score tolerable. So I give it a 5\10 only for the performances, expecially by Lulli and Ireland. English-speaking viewers will find some motive for laughing at the spelling of names on crosses.

I'm pretty certain there is a thread for this somewhere.
Partially agree with you here Titoli only I would give it a 6/10 merely for the town looney excursion and the chemistry between Lawrence and Ireland.
Lulli is always welcome as well!
Good to see the Fistful town used again to!
