| It is a typical Spaghetti Western including common scenarios , two-fisted antiheroes , rapid zooms and strong confrontations
So-so Pasta Western full of shots , go riding , crossfire , plot twists and violence . It contains a catching soundtrack , an atmospheric cinematography and passable production design shot in Elios studios , Lazio , Rome . Mediocre Western about a merciless revenge in which an avenger attempts to keep law and order , seeking justice , including a deadly confrontation between a tough deputy and his enemies , this reckless hero was here played by a Spaghetti star : Brett Halsey . Ordinary Italian Western with sad atmosphere , attractive musical score concerning customary revenger seeking justice and vengeance . It deals with a stranger called Johnny Ringo (Montgomery Ford or Brett Halsey) heads for the town of Eagle Pass to stop a mean counterfeiting band , following the theft of plates from the Federal Bank . The little town is run by Jackson (Dessy) , he is allegedlly responsible for this counterfeiting operation , and he owns the saloon where performs marvelous songs Annie (Polyn who sings herself a wonderful song : ¨How long is the night¨), who has a secret relationship with one of the counterfeiters called Ray Scott (Fuscagni). Along the way the suspicious Ray is detained by Ringo and imprisoned at the town jail , being watched by the sheriff (Lee Burton or Guido Lollobrigida , Gina Lollobrigida's brother) . Meantime , the unsettling and disturbing Jackson , along with his bunch of hoods and other respected villagers carry out blackmails and massacre against their opponents . But then Johnny Ringo contends his enemies at duels and ambushes in which he must use his experience and cunning . As Ringo kills each man of the gang one by one . Ringo is eventually supported by the astute sheriff , and proceeds his activities at whatever cost , acting as a judge , jury and lethal executioner . And the end takes place his encounter with enemies at the downtown , including unexpected surprises . This is a doomed journey to hell through vengeance , murders and violence .

Run-of-the-mill Maccaroni Western , adding a few novelties , but also with usual elements , such as extreme baddies , betrayers , noisy action , turns and some spectacular action scenes . It is a habitual Spaghetti Western including thrills , regular scenarios , nail-biting action , shoot'em up , and an unexpected final twist . This motion picture was regularly directed by Gianfranco Baldanello packing an evocative soundtrack , evocative cinematography and acceptable production design in a medium-low budget . This exciting Western regarding an implacable hunting down , adding cruel killings against suspect people , it should be more fun than it is , but the film seems some claustrophobic , mostly filmed at the town , as much of the action takes place at the village and its Saloon , though including some defiles , mountain , a cave and the central street for the ending showdown . Stars Brett Halsey , with pseudonym Montgomery Ford , elegantly dressed and using gloves , plays as Johnny Ringo who arrives in a small town, as he sees it was vandalized by a wealthy owner called Jackson who takes the invaluable honour , money , and lives of the upright townfolks . The American Brett starred several Spaghettis as this ¨Kill Johnny Ringo¨ , ¨Roy Colt and Winchester Jack¨ , ¨Twenty thousand dollars for seven¨ and ¨Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die!¨. Although he also performed other genres as Wartime : ¨To hell and back¨ , ¨Jet over Atlantic¨, ¨Atomic submarine¨, ¨submarine seahawk¨ , Drama : ¨Return to Peyton Place¨, ¨The girl in lover's lane¨, Adventures : ¨The magnificent adventurer¨ and Terror : ¨Return the fly¨, ¨Black cat¨, ¨Demonia¨. At the support cast appears some few familiar faces from Spaghett , as the following Italian actors as Guido Lollobrigida or Lee Burton , Barbara Loy , Attilio Dottesio , Lucio De Santis and Guglielmo Spoletini who often used pseudonym as William Bogart .

The music by Caruso is suitably Spaghetti in Morricone wake , with usual guitar chords and other instruments in Italian style . Adequate cinematography in Eastmancolor by Marcello Masciocchi , though a perfect remastering being really necessary . This Spaghetti Western was middlingly shot by the Italian professional Gianfranco Baldanello . He was a prestigious assistant director to popular Italian films such as ¨Leopard of Sarawak¨ , ¨Vendetta of Ursus¨ , ¨Cavalcata selvaggia¨ , ¨David and Goliath¨ , ¨Sword of the Sarracen¨ , ¨1527 Il sacco di Roma¨ , ¨Fire Monsters Against the Son of Hércules¨ , among others . As he was assistant director/writer/editor/producer and subsequently directed some films . Gianfranco made several Spaghettis , such as ¨Uccidete Johnny Ringo¨ , ¨This man cant die¨ , ¨Son of Zorro¨ , ¨The Cry of the Wolf¨, ¨Black Jack¨ , ¨Blood River¨ and ¨30 Winchesters for El Diablo" - International title- or "Gold Train" . Being starred by usual Spaghetti genre stars as Brett Halsey , Gianni Garco , Peter Martell , Wayde Preston , Fernando Sancho and Anthony Steffen . Rating : 4.30/10 Average . Only for Spaghetti Western aficionados .
