      Audience Member Best western ever, highly intelligent and thee most under rated as well. A total must see, no brain damage coquettish Hollywood directors and producers coked up making decisions. In this movie you see the historical story of ranchers of the Circle K going down to the haciendas after the Spanish lost the war with USA to get more cattle With legalize stealing Its a free for all. Gold bribes from Spain, sub plots, twists, turns, latest Spanish pistolero weapons from Spain. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is pure genius, samurai and western, where is this gold in our modern movie makers? I pity you if you cannot see how epic this gem is. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Hilariously awful wester from "Billy Jack" star Tom Laughlin. This time Laughlin is the tile master gunfighter, who also caries a samurai sword. Like Billy Jack, he's a man of peace, but others just can't help but push him to violence. Ineptly directed by Laughlin's son, the film is an absolute mess, but in the best sort of way for connoisseurs of bad cinema. Ron "Superfly" O'Neal plays Laughlin's nemesis, Barbara Carrera (who I'd forgotten about) plays the love interest and Burgess Meredith narrates the film. There were also quite a few recognizable character actors of the era and Lalo Schifrin provided the score. Really a zero star film, but I go two stars of ironic enjoyment out of it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Tom Laughlin is my Hero Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Tom Laughlin is my Hero Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
