North America, back in the 18th century: Captain Swing (Salih Güney)
leads a group of rebels, the Ontario Wolves, against their British
oppressors (dubbed Red-Coats) ... and he will have no one being captured
and tortured by the Brits, even if it's only a skinny dog, Puik, whom he
frees from the Red-Coats, and who then becomes his sidekick Bluff's (Ali
Sen) loyal companion. Soon though, Bluff himself falls into the hands of
the Red-Coats thanks to a treacherous miller, and he's tortured to give
away the rebels' hideout ... but just won't talk.
Swing and his other
sidekick, the Indian Sad Owl (Süleyman Turan), try to find and rescue
their friend, and only Puik can put them on the right track - but they
come to late, Bluff has already been executed by a firing squad. But Swing
and Sad Owl learn about the miller, and now they try to track him down to
exact revenge - but along the way, they are haunted by otherworldly
apparitions of Bluff, who at one point takes Puik with him.
meantime, Swing's girlfriend Betty (Gulgun Erdem) has paid a visit to the
treacherous miller for some corn dressed up as an Indian squaw, but he has
promptly made her his slave - until he learns that Swing and Sad Owl are
behind him and tries to leave the country.
Finally in a coastal town
it's showdown time between Swing and Sad Owl on one side and the miller
and the Red-Coats on the other ... but when it looks as if our heroes have
had it, they are saved by none other than Bluff, who has never really been
killed but saved by the Red-Coats benign doctor, who now helps them evade
the Brits until the Ontario Wolves, led by Betty, show up to save the day
Likeable mix of German Westerns of the Winnetou
variety, Italian comedy Westerns and good old American B-Westerns, circa
1930's, with the comicbook source or the film clearly shining through in
plot, style and action. Especially the film's light-footed approach to its
plot is endearing and does make up for its occasional shortcomings (mainly
of a budgetary nature).
After having spent an eternity in lost movie-limbo, this film has been
made available to the film-loving public (in a limited edition) by the
good folks from
Besides the movie with English or Greek subtitles and the obligatory
photo gallery and trailers, their DVD also includes biographies
and filmographies and a documentary on Turkish Westerns.
To put it short: This DVD's a must-have !
