Thanks for the review.
I've seen this once, on a German-language tape (probably the same source that was uploaded to the net, and was distinctly underwhelmed.
Armed with your comments I can at least appreciate the plot and the character motivations a little better, but I remember thinking that on this occasion, unlike in, say, Seven Dollars to Kill and Blood at Sundown, Cardone had failed to overcome his budgetary difficulties and resorted to padding the film out with superfluous scenes. Maybe he was less engaged with the story, which doesn't have the Biblical intensity of those earlier works.
The photography struck me as bland as well.
I'll give it a second chance, but I'm not expecting much of a revelation.
