From The Producer Of DJANGO And KEOMA
Franco Nero (DJANGO, STREET LAW) stars as Burt Sullivan, a tough Texas sheriff who heads deep into Mexico with his younger brother to arrest the man who murdered their father years earlier. But when they uncover a shocking family secret, the brothers find themselves trapped in a lawless land where violence is a pastime, vengeance is a birthright and sudden death is a way of life.
Also known as THE AVENGER, this rarely-seen 1966 western was directed by Ferdinando Baldi (COMIN' AT YA!) with cinematography by Enzo Barboni (THEY CALL ME TRINITY), and is packed with all the explosive action, epic locales and remarkable music that came to define the `Spaghetti Western' genre.

So I'll say this. If you enjoy Spaghetti/Euro Westerns, sweet gun play, or Franco Nero, no doubt give this a try. The DVD comes with the original Italian Audio which is nice. You also get a Franco Nero bio, a trailer, and a short but recommended 5 minute interview with Franco Nero on his Western career. It's a cheap DVD, under $10 always. With its clear case and cool cover, give this a buy. The film is a solid 8/10 and you won't be disappointed.
But, as usual, Anchor Bay has done a great job with the presentation, so theres yer two stars. Clean print, widescreen, nice extras. You definitely cant fault Anchor Bay's treatment, it's just that in my opinion, the product aint so great in this case.
Avoid unless you're a Spaghetti Western completist.
Has anybody else spotted the 'cantina' scene (pistols instead of light sabres) - or the 'old ben' character in the desert... or the son going to avenge his father's death then finding out that... well you know the rest. There's a whole bunch of other bits you'll recognise too even if you're not a Star Wars nerd. The lead character even looks a bit like Luke Skywalker!
Besides that, it's a great film with a great score and beautifully shot.
This, along with Django, Bullet for the General (Quien Sabe), Compañeros, are all glorious in their own ways (and available on DVD!) but my favourite - just because it's a film like no other is The Great Silence... BUY IT NOW!!!
