Synopsis

Thomas Milian reprises his role as Cuchillo from La Resa dei conti. He is entrusted with the location of a sizable portion of gold by a revolutionary leader, and so sets off to Texas to find it. Donald O'Brian is good as the former revolutionary who also wants the gold and follows Milian. The Gold also attracts a lot of interest from a variety of other villainous quarters and what seems like half of Mexico rapidly descends on the Texas town where it is located. Unsurprisingly, gunfights ensue.

Comment

In his third western, Sergio Sollima was less ambitious in his choice of themes as in its predecessors, but at the same time more choosy in the way he told his story. So Run Man Run is for many the least of Sollima's SW but for some the most stylish of them. The film is set on the verge of the revolution but only touches the usual Zapata western themes in favour of an adventurous story about a gold hunt, in which Sollima's "intellectual" stamp is only visible in the side plots. An underrated classic of the genre.
