| good violent western
It's a revolutionary central American country in 1920s. Oliver Van Horne (Robert Mitchum) is dressed as a priest. Irishman Emmet Keogh (Ken Hutchison) buys a ticket to anywhere to escape the growing unrest but it gets stolen. He encounters men loyal to revolutionary leader Colonel Santilla (John Colicos). He tries to rescue mute native girl Chela from them only to get strung up and then they're both rescued by Van Horne. They are captured by Santilla. The two imprisoned men and immoral gunrunner Jennings are recruited to assassinate his opponent Thomas De La Plata (Frank Langella) who is using a mine for his war chest. Rita Hayworth plays De La Plata's mother.

This has the Peckinpahesque violence like shooting a kid in the back. It's like a spaghetti western. The motivations are a little clunky. There are some compelling characters although Hutchison may not be leading man material. His looks is more towards villainous henchman. It's also notable for being Hayworth's last film. Her role is very much supporting and most compelling for the name. The Mexican location is great and the local colors are enticing. This is a fine B-movie.
