"Clint Eastwood stars and directs in this shameless Leone homage from the early '70s. Eastwood's unnamed horse-mounted strangers have never been the friendliest characters in the west, but in this instance he takes things to a whole new level. He's quick with guns of several varieties, mowing down three rowdy bar patrons and raping a bystander in the film's uncomfortable opening scene, then settling in to take the surviving villagers for all they're worth when he's hired for protection. As it turns out, the village has a few dirty secrets of its own, and its leaders soon resort to a wide variety of veiled threats and bumbling backstabs to keep them quiet. That leaves absolutely no one in the clear as a moral compass, even the twisted preacher, and the film soon settles in to spinning lazy circles like a rudderless ship. Misogynistic, mean-spirited and narrow, it's not a whole lot of fun to watch beyond a few sporadic action shots and one or two well-placed puns. A far cry from the unspoken atmosphere, dense moral grey area and thick, palpable character of the Spaghetti Westerns that made Clint's name in the mid '60s."

"While this was a good movie, I think you would be better served with Pale Rider. [spoiler] Not sure why the townsfolk were being trained because they didn't manage to hold their own. Just felt like filler. The Stranger gets his revenge and rides off disappearing into the countryside. [/spoiler]"

"A drifter came to a town. People living there are always feared because of lack of brave. They always rely on someone and complain all the time. No one is responsible and no one is Imdependent. That's the human nature. Or not. Anyway, westerns attract the deep part of Americans because it's their origin. Clint Eastwood may also describe his own root in this film."

Supernatural Western?

A lone gunman with no name and seemingly with no past, rides into the dusky town of Lago. The residents of Lago at first view the stranger with suspicion, but when news that some outlaws that are out for blood are on their way to town, they ask the stranger for his help.
