Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 01/01/2005
"[This] epic tale of gun-running in Mexico is one of the great post-Leone spaghetti westerns."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2005
"[A] prime example of a political film that is also vivid, bloody and hugely entertaining."
A.V. Club - 05/30/2012
"Like many spaghettis, it features more violence and less style than a Leone film. But like other memorable non-Leone efforts, it uses the same raw materials to combustible ends."

Product Description:

A fast paced and vicious spaghetti western starring Klaus Kinski and Lou Castel, A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL begins as a gang of former Mexican rebels attempt to rob a train carrying munitions, which they plan to sell to a revolutionary named General Elias. One of the passengers on the train, a gringo named Bill Tate (Castel), helps the bandits steal the weapons, ingratiating him with the leader of the bandits, El Chuncho, who accepts him into his gang. However, Tate is really an assassin sent by the Mexican government to kill General Elias, who is an old friend of El Chuncho's. Incensed at the murder of his old friend, El Chuncho is inspired to become a revolutionary once again, but not before he hunts down Tate and kills him.
