Decent Spaghetti/Paella/Schnitzel Western co-produced between Italy /Spain/Germany plenty of action , pursuits and lots of shots
24 June 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

"Bullets Don't Lie" is a Ravioli/Chorizo Western with a prolific Italian director and usual actors from Spaghetti . Entertaining Spaghetti Western with shootouts , action , go riding ,violence and amusement . On his own wedding day, sheriff Pat Garrett (Rod Cameron) must leave and try to arrest two bank robbers who have robbed the River Town Bank ; they are the Clanton Brothers , as Billy Clanton (Horst Frank) and George Clanton (Ángel Aranda) .

"Pistols Don't Argue" packs violence , crossfire , high body-count , full of horse riding , pursuits and shots and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . There is a lot of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes . It's an exciting western with breathtaking confrontation between protagonist Rod Cameron against the heartless Horst Frank and his brother Angel Aranda and a stirring ending gunfight . It's an agreeable story with a touch of peculiarity , some great characters, and an amazing music . This is an European co-production , Italian : Jolly Films , Spain : Trio or Ocean Films (Enrique Rivas) , Germany : Constantine Film of Múnich (Gunter Raguse) . As Italian producers Giorgio Papi and Arrigo Colombo formerly produced the first Spaghetti/Paella Western titled ¨Gringo¨ by Ricardo Blasco with similar technician team as Dan Savio or Ennio Morricone , cameramen : Mássimo Dallamano , Julio Ortas and secondary actors . After that , Papi and Colombo whose production company is called Jolly Films wish to produce two Westerns , the first with biggest budget titled ¨Le Pistole non Discutono¨, screenplay and filmmaking by Mike Perkins or Mario Caiano ; the second in little budget titled ¨For a fistful of dollars¨ by Sergio Leone with Clint Eastwood , as Sergio had to work in short budget , about 40 million of Liras for six weeks . The offer over both films included same locations , most technicians , costumes and same support cast . The most important difference was Rod Cameron whose salary was greatest than Fistful of dollars's all cast . As "Bullets Don't Argue" was shot at the same time to ¨Fistful of dollars¨ sharing atrezzo , gowns , sets , casting and many of them nicknamed under American pseudonyms . Both movies were filmed in similar exteriors such as rocks from La Pedriza (Madrid) , meadows of Dehesa of Navalvillar in Colmenar Viejo , Aldea Del Fresno (Madrid) and Almeria . Furthermore , at the Western village called 'Western City of Colmenar Viejo' that represents the 'ghost village' , being built by Augusto Lega and Felix Michelena , the first shooting there took place was ¨The terrible sheriff¨ (1963) by Antonio Momplet and Alberto De Martino . In addition , "Bullets Don't Lie" was shot in village of Hoyo of Manzanares called 'Golden City' financed by producer Eduardo Manzanos Brochero , being built (1962) by architects Jose Luis Galicia and Jaime Perez Cubero . They resulted to be the locations in which were shot lots of Western produced and directed by Spanish and Italian and occasionally American people . Besides , in "Bullets Don't Lie" appears several ordinary actors from Tortilla/Spaghetti Western such as Angel Aranda , Dick Palmer or Mimmo Palmara , Jose Manuel Martin , Tito Garcia , Julio Perez Tabernero , Simon Arriaga , Rafael Vaquero , and many others .

The musician Ennio Morricone composes a nice soundtrack and well conducted , this turns out to be one of the most memorable parts of the movie ; as it's full of enjoyable sounds and haunting musical background , including guitar and whispers , Morricone's ordinary marks . It contributes tremendously to the atmosphere of the film, adding an emotive leitmotif , the score is perhaps the best part of this film . Striking cinematography by Julio Ortas/Massimo Dallamano including a correct remastering . Outdoor sequences with barren and rocky exteriors filmed in Spanish places located on outskirts Madrid , prairie of Colmenar Viejo , Hoyo De Manzanares and La Pedriza , and of course , Almeria . Mario Caiano's direction is well crafted , here he's less cynical and humorous and more inclined toward violence and packs too much action , but especially this moving Western contains long shot'em up and thrills . Mario under pseudonym Mike Perkins directed this acceptable western , genre in which he would not only excel but one where he would spent much of the rest of his career , as he directed several Spaghetti : ¨Brandy¨, ¨Avenger of California¨ , ¨Ringo, face of revenge¨ , ¨Bullets don't argue¨, ¨Lone and angry man¨ , ¨A train to Durango¨. Caiano is a craftsman who has directed all kind of genres as Peplum as ¨Ulisse vs Ercole¨, ¨I due Gladiatori¨, ¨Maciste Gadiatori di Sparta¨ and Terror : ¨Nightmare castle¨, ¨ Eye in the labyrinth¨ and even Pornonazi as ¨Nazi love camp 27¨. Although Caiano couldn't be deemed an "A"-list director, his movies had a professionalism and a verve that many of those made by his fellow B directors lacked . This attractive as well as uneven Western but will appeal to Spaghetti aficionados . Rating : 7 , riotous Western in which there's too much violence , action and excitement enough .
