Not bad, but I've seen better
27 September 2004 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

(aka: VENGEANCE)

Hercules star Richard Harrison plays Rocco, a half-breed Indian who swears revenge on those who betrayed them for a gold robbery they had done. His best friend Ritchie (Alberto Dell'Acqua) is ripped apart (not shown) by horses tied to his arms and legs. One by one, he tracks them down and kills them. Along the way, he finds out that another best friend, Mendoza (Carlo Camaso) has also betrayed him. He looks tubercular with yellow splotches all over his face.

The two scenes that stand out are in the first saloon fight where Rocco grabs on to a beam from up above and swings his legs up killing a man in the throat with his spurs. The second memorable scene is when Rocco is captured by one of the gang, is tied up and sticks are placed under his eyelids so he can't sleep and the sun will damage his eyes. There's also an ending scene between Mendoza and Rocco in an underground mine turned hideout, that goes on for too long. Rocco gives Mendoza too many chances to kill him making the whole ending seem anti-climatic.

Antonio Margheriti, better known for his horror films, took a time out from his usual shock fests to direct this one and if he had cut ten minutes from the film, it would have made for a tighter story. As it is, it sometimes meanders too much for effect.

The widescreen Elite DVD is pretty basic with a rough, unremastered print that shows it's age in places. No trailer or extras of any kind. At least the dubbing isn't too bad and I was slightly entertained by some of the gun battles and the action it had.
