Gianni Garko will team up with Claudio Comaso or bounty hunt him if the price gets to $10,000
29 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"10,000 Dollars for a Massacre" is a spaghetti western that's above average, just as most of the other reviews suggest and as critics say too. It's very professionally done in all departments. It's a splendid looking film, with beautiful shots. The characters are not routine or clichéd, and neither are their interactions. Bounty hunter Django (Gianni Garko) is not anxious to bring back another body, but he can be tempted to go after Manuel (Claudio Camaso) if the price reaches $10,000. Meanwhile he's willing to team up with Manuel for a gold robbery.

The music score is a real spaghetti western score. There is able support on the female side from Mijanou (Loredana Nusciak). She wants Django to come with her to San Francisco. He's reluctant but agrees, before that bounty beckons.

The story takes its time, but there is a lot of originality in the script, not to mention being held captive by the cinematography. The director (Romolo Guerrieri) pulled it together in this smooth product.

Last I looked, this movie was ranked #28 among all spaghetti westerns. That's high considering how many of these were made.
