VERDICT – 2/5
1) A colonel in search of a traitor post-Civil War. The story is better than many of John Wayne’s prototype western movies as it gives a strong revenge motive to the main protagonist.
1) Barring Jennifer O’Neill as Shasta, the rest of the supporting cast is disappointing.
2) The first-half builts up the movie as an epic revenge Civil War drama but the second half is just formulaic western. Even the final boss fight is mediocre.
Shasta: Hey, what are you so happy about, Colonel?
Colonel: Well, I’ve had about the right number of drinks, and I am warm, and I’m relaxed.
