Time Out says

Photographed by the admirable Bruce Surtees, but a curiously strangled Western which can't make up its mind whether it wants to wring straight action out of the range war between poor Mexicans and a tycoon rancher (Duvall), or to explore the moral standing of the disreputable character (Eastwood) who takes law and order into his hands. Not unlikeable, but its irresolution is typified by the inappropriately rumbustious scene in which Eastwood drives a train through a saloon.
