Storyline

In 1870 Texas, a gang of gun smugglers supplies arms, ammunition and whiskey to Indians. Undercover government agent Martin Benson helps the army eliminate such smugglers. However, the army still needs to know the identity of the man in charge of the gang and the location of their latest hideout. Martin Benson wants to retire but the army asks him to find the head of the smugglers. The army arguments that Benson is the best agent for the job even if another undercover agent, Tony Guy, has already penetrated the smugglers' outfit. A huge payment in gold coins is also offered to Benson as an enticement. Benson agrees to this last assignment and heads out of the army fort. On the trail, many gun runners and bandits try to ambush him and have him killed. In the nearest town, at the Benson farm, a group of smugglers raid and ransack the farm and kill Martin Benson's parents. They also rape his sister, Jenny. The other Benson siblings, Arias, Susy and Daniel are in town buying supplies. ... Written by nufs68

Okay Spaghetti Western
20 October 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

In This Man Can't Die (English title) Guy Madison plays an undercover agent of the United States government who recently finished up work on a group of gunrunner/bootleggers but failed to find out the identity of the ringleader. Meanwhile, a family is viciously attacked, the parents murdered and the youngest daughter raped.

The link between the two apparently unrelated plots isn't apparent at first, leading to some confusion on the part of the audience.

Overall, it's a decent little Italian western with a decent performance by Madison, good production values, and excellent use of locations, though the afore mentioned confusion and some slow spots lead it to be less than spectacular.

At first I was going to congratulate the filmmakers on an excellent imitation Ennio Moriconne score but then I recognized a few music cues as being directly lifted from A Fistful Of Dollars, which leads me to seriously question the other songs on the soundtrack! Were they from other movies too?
