| A Caper, a Western, a Cause: who could ask for more?
Totally underrated and massive fun - this is the result of a group of nine year olds thinking up a spaghetti Western - hey, let's have a Samurai, and that guy from Mission Impossible, oooh and an impossibly big and strong one, and an acrobat, and an explosives expert, but let's keep it to only 5 that's even better than Magnificent Seven...

And so it goes....

It really is one of the best blokes' films of all time, just the right mix of adventure and fun, and all wrapped around an ingenious plot to rob a gold train.

With a good score, that'll remind you of every Western you've every heard, a couple of good chases, a jail break, and even mean and nasty Army types it really is a lot of fun...

Highly recommended as one of the classic pizza and beer movies, it is a real shame that it hasn't been seen more often... deserves to be a classic.
