| Mediocre Italian/Spanish Coproduction about two gunfighters , Sabato and Avram , who join to chase a villain killer, Jose Jaspe
This is a thrilling Spaghetti Chorizo western with plenty of action , crosses and double crosses, fights , shootouts , pursuits , violence and customary outdoors from Manzanares del Real, LaPedriza and Almeria Spain .It deals with two gunslingers El Santo : Antonio Sabato and Minnesota :Chris Avram , they join forces with similar purports. Minnesota receives an offer by the tough as well as suspect sheriff : Paolo Gozlino , to track down Corvancho , wanted dead or alive for a big reward : 2o.oooo dollars . El Santo is an outlaw pursued by the Justice and Minnesota is a two-fisted bounty hunter . Both of whom unite to find a Mexican bandit called Corbancho : Jose Jaspe who rules the Paso zone .His last heist was the bank of Tucson where he and his hoodlums robbed a loot of 400.000 dollars in gold bars.

Average Paella pasta Western follows Sergio Leone including macabre hanging and a bounty hunter in "for a fistful dollars more" style .It is a moving Ravioli with breathtaking gunfight between protagonists: Chris Avram , Alfonso Sabato against the hearless nasty Jose Jaspe and his henchmen .Acceptable action scenes with rousing attacks , assaults , go riding , and spectacular gunplay.Charismatic acting for the whole casting . It stars Antonio Sabato, father of Tv actor Antonio Sabato Jr. , Antonio played various Westerns as Beyond the law, Twice a Judas, Hate for hate ,Miss Dynamite but also made others genres as action , adventure and especially Italian Cop subgenre. Co-starred the early deceased Chris Avram who performed Western as California and Viva Django. Furthermore , the Eurotrash Goddess Erica Blanc , here playing a cunning Femme Fatale . In addition , A great number of ordinar support actos , most of them Spanish ones , uncredited and making brief appearances as Victor Israel, Beny Deus , Jose Canalejas, Lorenzo Robledo ,

The motion picture was regularly directed by Roberto B Montero who directed a lot of films through a long career from the forties. Making all kinds o genres as WWII : The battle of damned, 36 hours in inferno ; Adventures : Robin Hood , Thaurus don of Attila; Eurospy : Agent Z55 mission Hong Kong , Agent Z55 atomic secret, Voyage to danger; Westerns : Oklahoma John , Two sides of the dollar,Arriba Durango; Erotic movies as The hot nights of Caligula and Una Donna per 7 bastards and Sexy shock documentaries.
