"April Morning": two code words for impending shenanigans in this classic Lee Van Cleef film that encompass its rambling and somewhat mysteriously incoherent plot-but that's business-as-usual for a good Spaghetti Western. Mr. Van Cleef definitely had style in his Western wardrobes. His Captain Apache has one of the coolest jackets I've ever seen. Carrol Baker looks gorgeous in this, but Stuart Whitman looks tired. Lee Van Cleef looks great! He's stylin' with a rare hairpiece. As I've said before about the Spaghetti Westerns, the original theater prints had extremely vibrant colors and most VHS copies have lost this. Still, Captain Apache sports one of those kooky, great theme songs (like Return of Sabata) that fans of this genre adore.

In short, a good print of this would be heaven-sent for Van Cleef fans, but as it is, its a very enjoyable sample of Lee Van Cleef in full Italian glory.

Lee Van Cleef is definitely the key feature of this film set back in the 1800s. If you don't like spaghetti westerns - and especially if you don't like the "Good, Bad Ugly" set of movies, you're going to hate this one. This is exactly in that same style, with very similar plotting and silliness. However, if you love those types of movies, you're going to have fun here.

Van Cleef is a native american who is a member of the US Army. He's investigating a mysterious plot which involves something sinister in the government. Every person he talks to seems to know about the plot but is not able to give him information. He goes from person to person, trying to determine what is going on. He gets teased about being a "red ass", is beaten up, drugged, beaten up some more, and ridiculed some more.

There's very little about being an Indian here, with perhaps the exception that people beat on him for it. He does meet up with an Indian Chief at one point, and has to strip out of his army clothes before he can be talked to.

If you're a western fan, this is definitely a DVD to rent, to see if it strikes your fancy. If you enjoy it, it can become one of those cult classics that you put on at 2am and enjoy reciting a few lines along with.

I always enjoyed this van Cleef movie. That said, whomever did the transfer job totally, and completely, butchered it. Horrible. Buy some other version, definitely NOT this one!

Typical spaghetti western, with silly stereotypes and odd shenanigans. Not the best of the genre, and Lee Van Cleef is sort of passable as a Native American. Hard to follow at times and the plot jumps around a lot, but certainly the main character bulls through to the end. Would be best served as a Saturday morning matinee choice, as a time killer.

Carroll Baker in a spaghetti western ! It is very entertaining. She is at her best with Lee Van Cleef., and looks beautiful. Luckily I saw this in the theatre. Made in 1970 Carroll was past the Hollywood big buildup they gave her in 1963 and 1964 for the campy films, the Carpetbaggers, Harlow, and Sylvia. The career she had in the decade following including Captain Apoaache was mostly European films. They are different than American ones but they do have their charms. I am happy she continued to work, and make her fans like me happy.
