      Audience Member Plagued by a revolving door of characters searching for a revolutionary named Aguila that no one seems to know. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Poor film using the Mexican revolution as a backdrop for a western, but it gives several mainstream actors the chance to give some interestingly offbeat performances. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member the film should be called hell. it goes nowhere for at least an hour! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A dreary and disjointed mess with some glaring instances of sloppy direction (the death scenes). I endured this artless, rambling crap in the hope of some great reward, but nope! "That was worth it!" snarked I, as this came to a merciful end. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible editing and a hatchet-job of a full screen adaptation (where action often takes place on the parts of the picture that were trimmed to fit your TV) hurt this somewhat interesting, if over-long, western featuring an excellent cast. Of course, when I think Mexican bandits, I think Robert Shaw and Martin Landau. But they do a good job. Not great by any means, but if you can get past the technical problems, there's some good stuff. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member This is wannabe spaghetti western, My Copy came from the Wild West Box Volume 2, The film quality was at best poor, Stella Stevens plays the widow looking for her husbands killer. 10 years before in this town a priest and a group of Christian followers were massacred one of which was Stella's husband. Telly Savalas plays a sleazy Mexican dude who is the leader of the group. So what we have is 90 minutes of lets find out who done it, but we knew 5 min into the movie, so we have fighting shootouts and in the end good fine killing. Nothing more then 2 stars.
