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.

In the 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).

Recommended.

 

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 Onar Films .

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 !
