Review

Our Score
Michael Winner is a man who obviously loves the movies, and as a producer is capable of assembling major players in promising material. As a director, however, he's no great shakes, and invariably sabotages his own films by doing his own editing and by relying too much on the zoom lens. Filmed on location in Durango, Mexico, with a distinguished cast and a fine screenplay by Englishman Gerald Wilson, this authentic-looking, tough western is spoilt by inept timing and Winner's clumsy visual style as Burt Lancaster's indomitable sheriff arrives in town to round up a group of cowboy ruffians. No real director of westerns should have a star like Lancaster wear that silly hat throughout the movie.

Summary

Concluded.
