Bill Kiowa (Halsey) spends 5 years in prison, because El Fego (Nakadai) killed his Indian wife, had him beaten and left money bags in his house from an earlier robbery. Bill, with plenty of time on his hands, plans his revenge and having done his time, recruits four of the best gunmen around, O'Bannion (Bud Spencer), Jeff Milton, Bunny Fox and "Colt" Moran (Berger). When El Fego and his gang rob a Wells Fargo coach, Bill and his men are hot on their trail in the hope of carrying out those plans for revenge.
Today It's Me... Tomorrow It's You is a stylishly filmed and straightforwardly told revenge story inspired by Samurai films and made by a director who had formerly produced well respected Italian film classics by directors like Fellini, Antonioni or Rosi. Brett Halsey in the lead comes closer to the Django character than most of the "official" Django movies, and just like the rest of his "magnificent 5" or his foe Tatsuya Nakadai he is characterized in best SW manner by his clothes and his behaviour, not by a background story or meaningful dialogue. The only blemish is that the big finale fails to set a real point of culmination for the film. But it is beautifully filmed in an enchanted looking autumnal wood.
