Goofs

The scene where he's sitting on the porch spinning the cylinder of his Colt .45 is just awful. How do you fit a dozen errors into 15 seconds?!? First, he's loading it. OK. Then he shuts the loading gate. Now, the barrel will not spin. Which he proceeds to do. And when he does it, looking up the business end of the gun, you see...the chambers are all empty! Magically spinning with the loaded gate closed and the hammer returned to the first cock. Really. They *actually* machined a gun to do that. Those would be the chambers on an 1873 Colt .45, and they've already told us it's 1865. I guess when your gun is from 7 years in the future, it can do really amazing things. Things the one from 7 years in the future can't. And those are just the glaring errors in that scene; there are a plethora of little ones. My nominee for the worst gun errors ever in a Spaghetti Western. See more »

Mediocre, but OK for Hard Core Fans of the Genre
4 August 2018 | by leelacadeSee all my reviews

Very straight ahead, I mainly liked the fact it was in Spanish with English subtitles. Good practice. I liked the cinematography and as main characters go, this one works well in the genre.

The only real groaner in this one is the unbelievably bad weapons management. I've met 12 year old that could have edited those scenes much better than were done. See "goofs". There's one of the most horrendous ones I've ever seen in the genre...to much to go into here. Actually, it's like a dozen impossibilities in the space of 15 seconds. Hire a decent gun wrangler!
