“Highly-stylised… Hill’s remake of Kurosawa’s samurai classic Yojimbo places the story in the Prohibition era, with Italian and Irish bootleggers clashing over Mexican liquor supplies in Jericho, Texas. ‘John Smith’ (Willis) takes one look at the dead horse in the middle of Main Street and gets the full measure of this godforsaken ghost town. Before long both factions are vying for his services as hired gun, and Smith cynically plays one off against the other until, steeped in blood and sickened by what he’s seen, he sets about wiping out every last man. The plot will be familiar not only from Yojimbo but from Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars. Hill’s Tex-Mex version suggests he hasn’t got the Western out of his system yet.” – Time Out (London)
