So anyway there is a price on their heads, which makes me wonder a bunch of stuff. Like was that even legal, offering a bounty in another country? And how would you collect the reward? Who would you collect it from? And what were the odds you would be able to find the guy who is supposed to pay? And how would you prove they were dead? i.e. how would you prove that the two dead bodies you have are the right ones? If you are dealing with American outlaws, they would be known to people and someone would recognize them. But furriners, pretending to be somebody else? That's a different kettle of fish.
There are a bunch of good / cool / interesting things in this movie, some of which seldom show up in Westerns. But they are kind of like a pile of bricks. Each one is a solid thing, and they are kind of laid out in a line, but the story is weak and it is not really enough to pull it all together.
