Storyline

After Roy King’s gang robs a train, the men split the loot and part ways. Unfortunately for Roy, he meets and falls in-love with beautiful temptress Alicia who agrees to marry him. However, she manages to double-cross Roy and run away with his loot. Roy escapes from his predicament and re-unites with his gang. At the Mexican border, Roy catches-up with Alicia who married yet another man, river-boat casino owner Francisco Montero. Roy is hungry for Alicia, for money and for revenge. Alicia convinces Roy and Montero to join forces and follow her into Mexico where a Revolutionary leader is offering one million dollars to any mercenary who can destroy a federal Mexican Army arsenal. Of course, Roy and Montero agree with Alicia’s plan. They all head to Mexico, willing to risk their lives for one million dollars. Once arrived at their destination, the unlikely partners find that the Revolutionary leader is a bit loco and the task more difficult than imagined. The million dollar reward is real alright but crosses and double-crosses ensue

BAD MAN’S RIVER (Eugenio Martin, 1971) **1/2

 
This eccentric Euro-Western has more in common with the revisionist, light-hearted approach of BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969) than with any of the sadistic Italian fare shot around the same time and on the same locations. A great, eclectic cast (Lee Van Cleef, James Mason, Gina Lollobrigida, Sergio Fantoni, Jess Hahn, Simon Andreu, Eduardo Fajardo, Gianni Garko, Diana Lorys) finds itself somewhat stranded – and in the case of Mason, evidently embarrassed – in the face of the film’s bizarre changes of mood, some of which work (there are a few enjoyably comical action sequences) and some of which don’t (why the director chose to overdose on the “freeze-frame” stuff at the beginning is anyone’s guess); in light of all this, the involvement of talented Hollywood veterans Philip Yordan, Irving Lerner and Bernard Gordon is even more baffling. All in all, however, BAD MAN’S RIVER emerges as a surprisingly pleasant, if ultimately forgettable, diversion.
