This must have the most idiotic premise of any SW I've seen, or at least is a good runner. An entire battallion of Blue sharp-shooters is kidnapped after the end of the war to extort a ransom from their families. Ex-spy Hunt Powers will free them.
The first part is on the comedic side but doesn't make me laugh or smile. The scene with the gas from the stove is embarassing. Powers gun can apparently shoot 7 or 8 times in a row. The second part is more rough, but is boring, diluted and with not a single moment of excitement. Maybe only the way Powers frees himself from the ties is in SW vein, though not memorable.
What I save is Soledad Miranda: a pleasure to watch. And the upright piano in the saloon: My, I want it.
The score by Bacalov (and Morricone?) doesn't thrill me. 4\10

Worst title one could ever think of for a Western.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.
