Satisfying Revenge Tale With Odd Racial Bent
2 May 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Giuliano Gemma returns from fighting in the Civil War to find his father murdered, his wife stolen, and his hometown taken over by wealthy racist Fernando Sancho and his family, who reclaim it for Mexico, oppressing it's non-Mexican population, and even going so far as to nailing a "No Gringos" sign on the local saloon!

Not really a sequel to A Pistol For Ringo, this reunites the cast and crew for a less humorous follow-up that's actually better than the previous film, knowing exactly what buttons to push to get the audience firmly on Ringo's side and cheering his eventual squaring off with the thoroughly nasty villains.

Gemma and Sancho are truly Spaghetti western treasures, as is composer Ennio Morricone, who blesses this with one of his best non-Leone western scores.

Recommended.
