Good Minor Spaghetti Western
Bounty Killer Craig Hill follows monetary shipments and rescues the money after they're robbed. After a typical job, he gambles his ten-thousand dollar reward on a double-or-nothing proposition involving himself protecting a gold cache. Trying to take the gold is George Martin, the bandit that killed Hill's brother some time before.
A good enough Italian western, this has some decent action and suspense scenes, with Hill's character pulling off some excellent rifle work. Yes, it's derivative, but still pretty solid. The climax is well handled too.
Director Tonino Valerii went on to make My Name Is Nobody, one of the best spaghetti westerns ever.
Here, villainous Martin looks a bit like William Shatner, if he were cast as a Klingon!
