Gary Hamilton is granted a free pardon from a prison work camp and heads out after the men who framed him.

Very revenge driven Kinski vehicle. Nice to see Kinski in a role like this for a change. A bit dragged out since 2/3 of the movie is set at a stormy night in town when Hamilton takes his revenge. Stylishly Hamilton arrives to town with the storm. Action is not that clear at all time because of the darkness.

Nice camerawork, camera panning around objects in circles and sideways giving a nice effect. Also seems like they had some kind of fixation with sun blending the view and being blocked by an object. Music by Carlo Savina is not the usual, but works and reaches operatic feelings at a couple of scenes toward the end. Acting, or dubbing more likely, is horrible at times, like Acombar's "Gary Hamilton" cries.

One of the better Kinski's where he actually has a leading role. Still seems like he's a bit out of place and unmotivated to make a great character cast like he is used to.

 

Some dialogue:

Maria: "-A ghost return and he'll have only one desire in his hearth, only one thirst, revenge"
