valdez is comingThis saga was filmed in Spain and based on an Elmore Leonard novel. It is a revenge Western, centered on Valdez (portrayed by Lancaster, an American, playing a Mexican-American in Spain...) seeking retribution from a gang-leader who dismissed his request for justice for the widow of a killing. This is a fairly good film critically supported by Lancaster's interesting performance as the quiet, under-estimated, sharp-shooting tracker. The ambiguous ending may be particularly pleasing to many viewers.Because of the solid Western tale of suspenseful revenge and Lancaster's carefully calibrated leading performance, we recommend Valdez is Coming as a Must See.
