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. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

100 Rifles is listed as a PG movie in the western genre. It is really a film about the conflict between the Mexican Army and the Yaqui Indians around 1905. With brief nudity, executions, hangings and the slaughter of entire villages I personally believe the movie should continue to have it's original R rating. This was a well done action movie from the late 1960's. Fernando Lamas was excellent as the sleazy Mexican General. Jim Brown and Bert Reynolds did the best they could with a poor script and there are some super close ups of the beautiful Raquel Welch. That woman sure knows how to stop a train. This was a very contraversal movie in it's day. It is not a good as The Wild Bunch or The Professionals but it is a similar type picture and is worth a rental.
This is a solid,action-packed western with a good script by Clair Huffaker and Tom Gries,strong Gries direction,a fine Jerry Goldsmith score,and good performances
from Jim Brown,Raquel Welch,Burt Reynolds,and Fernando Lamas.Well done and very entertaining.
