John Forest is a bounty hunter, his half brother Clint is wanted by the law. John has some unfinished business from their past to also get even with Clint. When Clint steals 50.000 in gold from the army he also gets a gang of bandits, who where after the gold, on his tail. The Civil War is raging in the background.

All the Spaghetti Western elements are here. Bountyhunting, gold, revenge, betrayal, torture, flashbacks... Still a bit slow paced at moments. Garko is great in a pre-Sartana role. I found Claudio Camaso a bit annoying.

Very similar to '$10.000 Blood Money'. If you like one you will like the other. I would however rate 'Vengeance is Mine' better by an inch.

 

Some dialogue:

John: "-There's no use in telling the truth, I can take care of Clint myself."

Two Gun Gary: "-I'll make you talk, if I have to cut your throat open to look for the words..."
