Not only are the clues sparse to begin with, but every time Apache has a lead to follow, his suspects inevitably turn up dead before he can ask any questions.

      Audience Member It's really not a high quality western that is well filmed and well directed, but its fun to watch and the catchy theme song at the beginning sets the awkwardly serious, but realistically hilarious tone for the movie. The idea of an apache calvary soldier being the hero of the movie is different and makes this film worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Ken R Where do above average writers and producers go when they let down their guard and follow lowly influences? In this case, it's Philip Yordan and Milton Sperling – well, it seems some join the Spanish (Spaghetti copy) cheap stakes. But like all failed arts the results only sink them into undeserved oblivion. Italy's Sergio Leone seemed to have nearly perfected the trend of: ‘We can mimic the USA with cheap copies of their own history' by producing low-grade stories of the American West –the problem was, they thought they could do it better. These genres simply copied each other in the quest for easy money - then went on to become tombstones in Boot Hill. This one has the usual cast of once-were ‘stars' who languished on the casting couches after a few marginal roles in OK features - then progressed quickly down the ladder to Euro/Spag land. Here, Lee Van Cleef takes the lead as ‘Captain Apache' and even attempts to sing the credit tile songs! The El Paso DVD is presented in standard TVs 4x3 leaving the stars chopped off at the edges from the original ‘CinemaScope' ratio, and looking appalling. El Cheapo Director Alexander Singer, proves he just never ‘had-it' even though some modern American historians of late, are trying to hail him as an overlooked talent (off what?) Those who enjoy ‘BAD' movies may get a giggle or two – otherwise, hit the trail Captain and please, follow it into a never-ending sundown. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/19 Full Review Audience Member His singing wasn't that bad. Sheesh! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Lee Van Cleef as a Native American soldier now working for the government who uncovers an assassination attempt on the President while investigating a murder. Plagued somewhat by the endless stream of characters that get killed. Hard to keep track. On the plus side, Van Cleef lends vocals to songs on the soundtrack! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Ok movie until the end. Terrible ending! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member good mystery/western combo or as my friend says a hybrid. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
