This film is apparently very underrated here on Moviemeter. Admittedly, this is not a high-flyer, but I can think of plenty of movies that are much worse than this one. Fortunately, the rating on IMDB is a lot higher, and this is also a better reflection of the film.

I have now watched this movie for the 3rd time, and once again I was not bored. Great movie to get through the night with. Also looks nice. A short western with a simple plot, the necessary action and some kickboxing. The latter also makes it interesting. Not your average Western anyway. In my opinion, this film swings a bit between an A-movie and a B-movie.

Too bad there is a very unbelievable scene just before the end. Von Trotta, who is violently kicked against a metal point, which then pierces his body, but a little later the gentleman is fit again to take hold of Charlegrand Risen from the dead

2.5 star as far as I'm concerned.
