Great stuff!
8 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

I watch a lot of spaghetti westerns, and "Adiós Gringo" is one of the best I have seen for quite some time. It wastes no time getting to business; the dire situation for the hero is set up in the movie's first six minutes! And the remaining eighty seven or so minutes are extremely captivating. This spaghetti western has a particular hard edge, from the many killings, fist fights, and the humiliation and ordeal the movie's leading female character is forced to go through. Also, the movie really puts the pressure on the hero, making his list of problems increase as the movie progresses from one scene to another. I was frequently wondering if the hero would ever clear his name! The action sequences, though a bit sporadic, are very well done - you really feel the punches and the bullet wounds. The icing on the cake is a nice musical score. If there is any problem with the movie, it would have to be the title - why it is in Spanish when the movie takes place in the United States and with no Mexicans around is a mystery. But that's a minor quibble. Check this movie out!
