Shanghai Joe is a Chinese immigrant, seeking a new, peaceful life in America. He lands in Texas, where he is not exactly welcomed with open arms, but finds employment as a cowboy, and soon finds it is not cattle the ranch inhabitants are moving, but Mexican slaves.


After a six year gap, Mario Caiano returns to the SW with this uneven west meets east variant. Chen Lee fights his way successfully through a west filled with racists while director Caiano unsuccessfully fights with his directorial talents against an episodical screenplay with too many shortcomings and stupidities in it. Often well directed with some hearty gore effects, some bizarre guest appearances and a beautiful Bruno Nicolai score (which was already used more strikingly in Have a Good Funeral, Sartana Will Pay), this one gives me the feeling of a superior Fidani trash movie.
