Decent revenge drama from Turkey. It plays like a spaghetti western, right down to the unlisenced Morricone soundtrack. Still, there's flashes of creativity on the director's part that seperates it from other Leone knock-offs, such as shootouts in the snow (& igloos), and the lead's penchant for bringing only the heads of his bounty back when he collects rewards. Studio execs would be fuming if Eastwood did the same.
Guney's motif of man set against backdrop of formidable landscape is used quite often in this film and provides some of the best images of Ac Kurtlar. All the troubles of the characters seem somewhat pathetic to the snow covered mountains. Guney offers us look at inexcusable honor killings and the final scene is allegorical for the social uprisings going on in Turkey at the time that would lead to the coup of 71
