"Considering the sensational cast (Eli Wallach, Terrence Hill, Bud Spencer, Kevin McCarthy and Brock Peters), the Euro-western era it was made in and the locations where it was shot, Ace High is a major disappointment. The plot is uninvolving and incoherent, the cinematography is cramped and completely lacking in style, the music is weak during a time that spawned so many memorable soundtracks and the direction lacks any focus whatsoever. The editing looks like it was performed with a butcher's knife. After the first ten minutes, I knew I'd made a mistake buying it. A boring 120 minute piece of junk, Ace High is hopelessly outgunned by any number of great Italian westerns including Corbucci's The Mercenary or Parolini's Sabata series. Save your fistful of dollars for a better film."
What about Sabata?

"I like this film very much, but when are they going to put the three "Sabata" films on VHS or DVD? Lee Van Cleef made the first and third. Yul Brynner made the second Sabata and in some ways was the best. "Ace High" is a good film from the same mold of Leone's trilogy. Yet "Ace High," "Sabata," "Death Rides a Horse" and others look second rate though in the same genre. Terence Hill however does bring "Ace High" up one notch the more I think about it."
Comedy in a genre devoid of Comedy

"Cacopolus, played by Eli Wallach, is easily the best Western anti-hero to grace the silver screen. His dry wit, and useful sayings his "grandfather used to say" make him constant comic relief. Two friends rob a bank, and head out of town with their money, little do they know that their about to be duped by Cacopolus, an outlaw who know his way around money, and redefines the word "money laundering". After being robbed the duo seek out their mustached theif, following the trail of good deeds Cacopolus does throughout the country side, with their money!"

"This film has some good actors in it but the plot is pretty shaky and hard to follow at times. It is not comparable to other great Westerns made during the sixties. Eli Wallach is good but confusing--who and what is he after? The color is good and it sounds like a Sergo Leone picure but it isn't. What a shame!!! It could have been made better--less comedy and more plot and of course --action and suspense!!!! Buy or rent on your own if you dare----I wouldn't."
