Save thy time, save thy money!
Alas, Carl Spiehs, what have you done this time? This is sort of a Western, and quite a bundle of scenes look quite familiar, you could swear you have seen them before. You are right. This film's effort is to copy known scenes of other westerns and to copy even the names of other films (the german title is related to a famous Terence Hill/Bud Spencer movie, the italian title to a well known 60ies Italo-western). It must have been fun for the actors - or a racket (at least it was for co-producer Spiehs). The whole film is quite a lukewarm business, every scene that begins promisingly looses quite every charm and drive until it's end - well, the end is always quite near. But I must admit that I enjoyed some fighting scenes which were intended to be funnny and in a way, they were. (These scenes were arranged by some cracks who also did these T.H./B.S. movies). If you can see it in TV, do so; if you'd have to rent it (and spend money) - beware.
