Time Out says

More interesting as a way station in Eastwood's career than for anything intrinsic to its lawman/vigilante scenario, this was his first American Western after the spaghettis. Made by his own company, Malpaso, with an old 'Rawhide' director on board (Eastwood is said to have shot some of it himself), the film anticipates the obsession with the dichotomy between natural and legal justice. Saved by chance after being summarily strung up as a presumed rustler and left to die, Eastwood sets out to avenge himself on the nine men who constituted the lynch mob and left him with a scar on his neck.
