| Well made revenge tale is severely hobbled in its short version by the loss of everything but the gun fights
A man returns home from the Civil War to find his wife and child have been murdered. He vows revenge and sets off to get it. Before he kills he sets in motion a small mechanical drummer that was one of his son's toys. As the body count increases the town where the killers reside gets nervous wondering who is next.

I saw the shorter 75 minute version of this film and can only wonder how this plays in the full 99 minute Italian version. Here the film is a series of brutal gun downs by our "hero" with very little in between them. To be honest the action is not bad, its just that with little more than the gunfights for the first half of the movie any interest is lost before the second half gets under way (I ended up picking up the paper and reading). There is no character development and little plot beyond the quest for revenge and the sheriff trying to stop him by standing around looking concerned. Making things worse is the dubbing which is so loopy as to be nonsensical.

This is not a movie I can not recommend, at least in the shorter version, unless you are need to be put to sleep or are trying to see every Spaghetti Western ever made.
