Directed by Edoardo Milargia,this is a completely gripping film about 5 sadistic murders on the trail of a  folk hero called El Puro who has a bounty on him of $10,000.Puro's been on the run for 10 years and by now he is a shadow of his former self and has turned to the booze big time.The bounty hunters are led by a madman called Gypsy who it seems also has a big grudge against Puro though its never entirely established why.
This movie is deliberately slow paced and theres a great build up of tension as frustration gradually mounts up as Gypsy becomes more and more desperate to catch up with Puro,and Puro spends alot of time dealing with personal demons ,staggering about with double vision trying to get his act together to deal with his pursuers.Its definately low on the action side but somehow i got totally absorbed into this movie which is hugely aided by a very impressive and varied score from Alesandro Alessandroni and the main theme uses a variation of the GBU riff  played on various instruments.
The major letdown in this movie is that the final showdown doesn't do justice to the suspenceful build up but there is a neat twist in there somewhere.

If the finale had been better i would have got a higher rating from me,which is 7 out of 10.  :-\

Thought this was pretty good.  Robert Woods made some great lower tier westerns with BLACKJACK, MY NAME IS PECOS and this one too.  I have to admit I was surprised to watch the villain snog the face off his head henchman after beating a woman to death.  :-*

I'm not from the UK but did I read this right?

The villain "SNOGS" his, presumably, male lackie!?

Is this Yank right in thinking that "snog" (or snogging) means "making out"?

Guh Whaaaa!?

Wow. Didn't think the portrayal of gay characters would go that far during that point in time.
