A gang of gunrunners is sought by both the Mexican Federales and the Yaqui Indians for different reasons - by the federal police to prevent the marauding tribes from preying on innocent farmers and by the Indians because the gunrunners' leader sold them bad medicine resulting in blindness for many of their children. The police capture the criminals, but both parties are surrounded in a ruined mission by the angry Indians. Can the cops and crooks work together to survive the onslaught of the tribesmen?

Did You Know?


One night while on location in Guatemala, near the Mexican border, producer Robert L. Lippert woke to the sound of gunfire coming from the hotel room next to his. Remembering that a Guatemalan army general was staying in the next room, Lippert realized it was an assassination attempt and, not wanting to get shot as an eyewitness, jumped out the window and ran across the border to Mexico. The rest of the company, which was staying at another hotel, left the country for Mexico the next day. See more »

A Very inferior Western
30 April 2002 | by buxSee all my reviews

Despite featuring a cast culled from both Hollywood and Mexico, and colorful Mexican locations, this is in all respects a very poorly made Western picture. The plot concerns the capture of a band of Yaqui Indians, gun smugglers and Mexican Federales, all leading to the title's conclusion. The characters are so poorly developed, that by the time the picture has run half way, all we want is a conclusion, no matter what the consequences. It is rumored that this one was quite often yanked from the screen at the "A" movie houses and soon made it's appearance on TV. This is NOT one of the better efforts of Robert Lippert and Company.
