Mediocre Paella or Chorizo Western by the horror expert Leon Klimovsky at his first Tortilla film
10 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Pryce (Luis Induni) is a land baron who wants to force Carter (Tomas Blanco) sell his lands , but he and his son Billy (George Martin) to be opposed to it . Later on , Billy goes to town saloon , where he meets Black Jack (Jack Taylor) , a hoodlum's Pryce , and it happens some violent brawls . Then , the corrupt sheriff (Aldo Sambrell) appears there and he detains Billy , but he , helped by a dog , swiftly escapes from jail . After that , the nasty Pryce and other powerful owners organize a raid to invade Carter's lands and cut the barbwire as well as the fences . But Pryce's daughter hears the plans and warns Carter (Tomás Blanco) and his wife (Tota Alba) , but Carter doesn't believe her . Soon after , Black Jack fires their home with unexpected consequences . As Billy seeks vendetta but then shows up an Union captain (Alberto Dalbes) who investigates the deeds and he supports the pursued Carter .

This Gazpacho Western is full of action , exaggerated characters , loads of go riding , double-crosses , but it also displays an exciting screenplay . Middlingly-staged action sequences with rousing crossfire and spectacularly bloody fights and brawls . It is full of thrilling events , shoot'em up , fighting , treason and riding pursuits . It's a medium budget film with usual actors , acceptable technicians , passable production values and middling results . So-so Western regarding a revenge story , with plenty of violence , shoot'em up , thrills and noisy action . Here the veteran director Klimovsky is partially inspired , though the ending is pretty predictable . Charismatic performance for the whole casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , George or Jorge Martin is decent in his usual tough role , here as Billy Carter , an brave farmer turned into gunslinger and desperately wanting to revenge a killing , but a ruthless Pistolero , Jack Taylor , is on his trail . Jorge played several Westerns , he worked much for Alfonso Balcazar's factory , such as : ¨Clint the strange¨, ¨The return the Clint¨, ¨Oeste Nevada Joe¨, Thompson 1880¨ , ¨Taste of killing¨, ¨A pistol for Ringo and ¨The return of Ringo¨ . This one is a moving and early western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist , a countryman becomes a gunslinger who is forced to make a fundamental choice about his life , against his relentless enemy , Jack Taylor , an extreme villain as well as racist who mistreats black people and kills mercilessly . George Martin is fine , he ravages the screen, rides , kills , shoots , hits and runs . There is plenty of thrills and action in the movie , guaranteeing some crossfires or stunts every few minutes . The film blends violence , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . Anti-climatic and inappropriate score , in jazzy style , by Daniel White , Jesús Franco's regular , including some attractive and catching songs . There is a very odd implementation of shots in the camera work during some particular scenes as the film approaches its climax , as in the ending gunfights and the customary confrontation finale . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction and decent production design , being shot in Colmenar Viejo , La Pedriza , Manzanares Del Real , Madrid .

This ¨Tortilla¨ or ¨Paella¨or ¨Gazpacho¨ Western was professionally directed by Leon Klimovsky , though it has flops and gaps , being strictly a Western fodder . Leon was a craftsman who directed all kind of genres , as Terror for Paul Naschy : ¨Marshall of hell¨, ¨Rebellion of dead one¨ , ¨Orgy of vampires¨ , ¨Werewolf shadow¨, ¨Dr Jekill vs. the werewolf¨ , Warlike : ¨June 44 attack force Normandy¨ , ¨A bullet for Rommel¨ , ¨Bridge over Elba¨ and Western ¨¨Badland drifter¨ , ¨Reverend Colt¨ , ¨Torrejon city¨ , ¨Death knows no time¨ , ¨Two thousand dollars for Coyote¨ , ¨A dollar for Sartana¨ and "A Few Dollars for Django" which appears as director the Spanish/Argentinean Leon Klimovsky , but actually, for the most part of its filming by the disagreements arising with Klimovsky was realized by Enzo G. Castellari . Rating : 5 . Average .
