This was the influence of the popular European Westerns or Spaghetti Westerns that, apart from the Sergio Leone films, had had little impact on the box office in the United States but had seriously challenged the "old school" American Westerns almost everywhere else. Also, it was pretty darn cheap to shoot in Spain in those days. Former pro-football player Jim Brown was never a great thespian but he was a convincingly rugged screen presence and plays a African American lawman from Arizona who tracks a bank robber (Burt Reynolds, not yet a superstar but getting close to becoming one) in Northern Mexico during the Revolution. Soon the lawman finds himself embroiled in a Yaqui uprising against the local general (Fernando Lamas, father of Lorenzo Lamas). Add in a sympathetic Mexican firebrand (Raquel Welch), a two-faced American railwayman (Dan O'Herily), and an Imperial German military adviser (Eric Braeden long before he became a fixture on The Young and the Restless) and you have plenty of fun. This is not The Wild Bunch (which was filming at the same time and had a number of the same plot elements such as the general's automobile and the sinister German advisers along with two-faced money men) and its cynical anti-authoritarian politics are in keeping with the times but less so than in the fore-mentioned The Wild Bunch or many of the Spaghetti Westerns set in the Mexican Revolution. All-in-all, its a fun movie that should have been shot in a wider screen format but uses lots of extras and stuntmen instead of CGI. And you are always watching Jim Brown when he is on the screen, unless Raquel Welch is in the same shot. Its probably a three star movie but I gave it an extre half star as I enjoyed the recent Kino Lorber Blu Ray disc with a surprisingly enjoyable audio commentary by several notable film historians.
