The Mexican Guns of the Revolution alternates between tension and all-out violence. It's a tight contest, but violence finally wins out towards the end. Ernest Borgnine plays a ruthless provincial governor who tyannizes a sizeable piece of Mexican territory. He is challenged by an outwardly mild-mannered priest, played by Padre Humberto Almazan. The cat-and-mouse between good guy and villain is the best thing about the picture.
