Our Score
An intriguing title hides a very undistinguished spaghetti western. More imagination seems to have gone into the names of characters like the Vicious Mexican and Joe "the Worm" Smith than into the plot, which is a routine affair about a sheriff teaming with a bounty hunter to confound gun-runners. Hunt Powers is a poor Sartana, but Fabio Testi - remembered from The Garden of the Finzi-Continis - is a scowling substitute for Franco Nero as Django, "the Man in Black". Directing under the pseudonym Miles Deem, Demofilo Fidani ensures there is just enough bruising action to keep you awake.


A young gunslinger becomes sheriff of a lawless town, to the disgust of a Mexican bandit leader. However, the arrival of an infamous bounty hunter may be more than the newly appointed lawman can handle. Spaghetti Western, starring Jack Betts and Fabio Testi. In Italian.
