Telly Savalas plays Villa in this European production about the revolutionary folk hero of early 20th century Mexico. It has all of the earmarkings of the Spanish produced and filmed westerns that accompanied the spaghetti westerns. Savalas plays the part like Kojak -- his Villa is appropriately crude, very silly and quite routine, but the lead actors are an interesting crew and a lot of mugging for the camera is done by most of them.
