The year is 1867, and the Southern United States is an occupied territory. Gun Law rules and corruption flourishes. In control are thieves and murderers like ruthless land baron Brent Mallick (Corbin Burnsen) backed by corrupt politicians and their State troopers.
When Mallick has cattle-owner Jack Neumann (Jurgen Prochnow) murdered by his rogue mercenaries, so that can steal his land, retired Confederate General Jackson 'Ole Devil' Hardin (Martin Sheen) calls in a group of former soldiers, 'the Floating Outfit' to ensure that Neumann's feisty neighbour, Frida, is not forced to sell her land.
But Mallick is willing to use all necessary means to win out and unleashes his sadistic desperados to blaze a trail of torture, lynchings and executions that only those that are fastest on the trigger can hope to survive.

The acting was not brilliant I bought it because Jurgen prochnow was in it but was disappointed as he was quickly killed off and that's were it went down hill for me.
If you can get it cheap then it might be worth a watch but don't expect a classic western but somthing that is watchable once.
Fans of J T Edson may take umbrage at the inaccuracies of the films characters, but then Edson himself who was Derbyshire born was not noted for the authenticity of the west he portrayed in his novels. From seemingly writing in his local pub he was propelled to fame by Corgi books in the seventies, a period when I was devouring Louis L'Amour a superior western writer. Jurgen Prochnow and Martin Sheen are only on screen for a short time despite their top billing. An old much used ploy to try and improve sales! At least the two do not feature prominently on the DVD cover, as they did on the old VHS version. The film was shot on location in South Africa, which substitutes well for the west. Filming costs would no doubt have been reduced as a result. It is the sort of fodder that is easy on the eye for the western fan, and although it has no originality and some of the acting is sub standard, it did put me into my old western comfort zone. I sort of went into auto pilot and was only awoken from childhood western slumbers with the not unpleasant sight of female boobs, which appeared gratuitously a couple of times to remind me that this film was of more recent vintage. They were very ample boobs which were perhaps the highlight of this film! Never mind, at least it was a western.
