A big bore of a Euro western
17 May 2015 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

"A Place For Glory" was picked up for American theatrical distribution by a major Hollywood distributor. After watching it, I am at a loss as to try and explain why and how this movie got such special treatment. Normally I love Euro westerns, but I found this one to be a gigantic bore, probably because no Italians were involved (the movie was a co-production between Germany and Spain.) If you are looking for action, you better forget it - it takes more than half of the movie before the movie has its first scene that could be considered a true action sequence. And none of the action is particularly exciting under the direction of Sheldon Reynolds. In fact, the material between the action sequences is also tough to sit through since it's so slow and boring. In fairness to Reynolds, the script he had to work with was badly written. The story moves at a crawl, and although I read the plot synopsis on the back of the DVD case before watching the movie, I was more often than not bewildered and wondering what exactly was going on. The credits state that Fernando Lamas was one of the screenwriters. I can only say thank goodness that Lamas' son Lorenzo was not the writer.
