Jim Brown, recently retired football superstar, plays the US marshal with the virility and muscle that befits his status as one of the greatest, and definitely the most punishing running back in the history of the NFL. Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch plays the two revolutionaries. Brown's character comes to Mexico chasing bank robbing Reynolds, ends up falling for Welch, and eventually helps both Reynolds and Welch with their revolutionary activities. Reynolds displays all of the vigor and charm that helped become the most popular box office star in the late seventies/early eighties, and Welch is, well Welch, oozing sex appeal and sensuality.
100 Rifles is definitely a product of the era in which it was made, but since there very few great Westerns made in the late 60's except movies like Hombre and The Wild Bunch, this is film to appreciate and treasure.
General Verdugo (Fernando Lamas) is sure that the money was not spent on women or on Whisky... For him, Joe stole the $6,000 from the Citizen's Bank in Phoenix, Arizona to buy 100 rifles for his people, the Yaqui Indians...
Verdugo--a murderer and an assassin who runs the State of Sonora--have orders to get rid of the Yaquis any way he could, and he took the easy way by killing everybody... He even kidnapped Yaqui children to regain the rifles... And now he wants Lyedecker's head on a stick in the middle of the plaza for everyone to see...
Lyedecker doesn't care about nothing and nobody... He took a job that nobody else wanted... His intentions are to take Joe back for the $200 reward and a permanent job... The policeman rejected any deal in spite of all the atrocities he witnessed like executing Indians or hanging them up like a side of beef...
Steven Grimes (Dan O'Herlihy)--who runs the railroad-- doesn't want his train to be a small sacrifice to the mean general... The German military adviser Lt. Von Klemme (Eric Braeden) thinks that the Indians must be finished off as quickly as possible before more guns come through... Raquel Welch's most audacious moment comes out when the Indians attack a well-guarded train carrying troops and supplies, and she was openly showering in the flat part, under a water tower...
With a very nice score by Jerry Goldsmith, "100 Rifles" is a slam-bang action epic, with loads of explosions and gory fighting, making little sense but a lot of amusing noise...
That's about it for novelty, though. Although Tom Gries direction is more than decent and even has one impressive prolonged take of the government troops fortifying a town, this is more a decently crafted Saturday night action movie than anything more memorable and ambitious.Read more ›
