Joe goes off on a long journey to reach a place where an uncle of his has died and left him a mine. Arriving there he finds a very troubled state of affairs. Among other things, he learns that the mine left to him had, apparently, been handed over to a man called Berg by the uncle himself just a few days before he died. Joe immediately realises that the whole town is in the hands of Berg and his gang. Even the sheriff is on the side of the outlaws. Joe decides to fight the gang.


After a great opening scene, which brings again Shakespeare to the west but ends in quite a good SW manner, the film tumbles towards mediocrity. The last half hour is one endless (and idealess imo) action scene which is enjoyable for some and a bore for others.
