Overview

Lyedecker (Jim Brown) is the Arizona lawman who travels to Mexico in search of Yaqui Joe (Burt Reynolds). Joe has made an illegal withdrawal of $6,000 from the band in Phoenix to help finance his tribes's uprising against the Mexican government. Sarita (Raquel Welch) is the local woman who is friendly towards the Indian leaders. Both men are tracked by General Verdugo (Fernando Lamas), the career-minded military man who realizes a victory could boost his station in high-society and politics. Also on hand is the American railroad agent Grimes (Dan O'Herlihy). The battle ensues between the Indians and the government troops as Lyedecker and Joe form a temporary alliance to survive. They are captured by the troops, but the Indians instead of the calvary come to the rescue in this routine western taken from a novel by Robert MacLeod.

"100 Rifles" is a fast-paced western adventure unfolding amidst the chaos of the Mexican Revolution, but unlike director Tom Gries' earlier masterwork, the overlooked but excellent "Will Penny", the film has a constant inconsistancy of tone that becomes extremely frustrating. The picture moves like lightning and features a fine performance by Raquel Welch (she seemed to relax and expand as an actress in all of her westerns), but the script is full of holes and events go unexplained far too often for anything to make much sense. Jim Brown is predictably stollid but solid, but Burt Reynolds seems to be channeling the hillbilly histrionics of Hal Needham fodder-to-come. He just seems to be in a different movie altogether. The hopelessly sexy Soledad Miranda is wasted in a too fleeting cameo as a prostitute, but Dan O'Herlihy is wonderfully, wittily opportunistic as an oily railroad agent. The whole enterprise may not make any sense (Welch's character is dispatched in a climatic gun battle and nobody seems to really notice), but it remains highly, improbably entertaining despite it's nonsensical nature. Jerry Goldsmith's peppy, brassy score is very fine indeed. Both picture and sound on this disc are of high quality.
