Mexican inspired western
1 February 2019 | by sinful-2See all my reviews

A stranger comes to Sebastians farm house. The stranger is wounded so he helps him and offers him to stay there. The stranger steals his horse and takes of. Therefore of course he takes of finds the stranger and saves him out of trouble..... Then afterwards the stranger that stole his horse tells him a story and of course Sebastian believes that at once......

Good- The Soundtrack was nice as many people have noticed. I think it was also a pretty picture.

Bad- I wish the story had been as good as the soundtrack. Unfortunately it could have been written on the back of a stamp. Characters more shallow than a water puddle on the sidewalk. And no character development that make me care about any of the persons here. Late you get Rafaels motivation for what is going on in this movie. The rest you can more or less make up your own story. Trouble is I found Rafael unlikable. Sebastian I was just not interested in.

Yes the end was pretty filmed. But so many things were unsettled and again I did not really care so much more at that time.

Recommendation: So many better revenge movies out there both as westerns and everything else. Choose one of those instead.
