Spaghetti/Chorizo Western starred by an American actor , Craig Hill , and a Spanish , Jorge Martin .
26 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Spaghetti with Gazpacho Western full of noisy action , thrills , plot twists and shootouts . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti, as is full of fury, sadism , bloodbaths , and portentous close-ups of encrusted faces . The film blends violence , blood , tension , high body-count along with plots twists and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . This Spanish/Italian co-production results to be a very amusing Western about some roguish outlaws and a bounty hunter named Hank Fellows who attempt to rob a fortune from a safe . This fun film deals with a group of bandits (led by Fernando Sancho and Jose Canalejas) who are chasing a gold load , they then attack a military convoy and take 100.000 dollars . This Spaghetti Western concerns about robbing a valuable fortune contained into a bank stage coach and crossing from a desert to Omaha City Bank . But a dubious bounty hunter (Craig Hill) with a telescopic rifle reckoning the bandits . This is a surprisingly low-key Spaghetti Western in which diverse characters joining forces to protect the safe and others trying to rob a lot of money . The ambitious bounty hunter deals with bankers (Franco Ressell , Piero Lulli) who persuade him to accept double the reward money on his last job if he gets to insure the safe . Meanwhile , a gang led by Gus Kennebeck (Jorge Martin) who holds posters captioning ¨ Reward : Dead or alive¨ attempts to rob the Bank . Hank will prevent the threatened robbery taking place at the Omaha City Bank . Fellows seeks vengeance against Gus who long time ago killed his brother , being helped by a likable old man . There then occurs the Kennebeck son's kidnapping and he attempts to rescue him .

Italian-Spanish co-production full of action , exaggerated characters, crossfire and lots of shots . The film packs violence , shootouts , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes . It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the starring Craig Hill and his enemies , Jorge Martin and Fernando Sancho , among others . Furthermore , appears ordinary secondary of Spaghetti/Paella Western as Spanish players : Jose Luis Martin , Jose Canalejas , Frank Braña , Jose Marco , Lorenzo Robledo, as Italian actors : Piero Lulli , Franco Ressel , Rada Rassimov , George Wang playing a tough character as Machete and many others . Special appearance by Spaghetti idol , Fernando Sancho and Sancho Gracia film debut , who many years after would play another famous Spag :¨800 Bullets¨. Good production design creating an excellent scenario with luminous outdoors , dirty and rocky landscapes under a glimmer sun and a fine set on the Omaha town , including the Bank that is the same to ¨For a fistful of dollars more¨. Fine cinematography by Stelvio Massi , he subsequently turned filmmaker ; being filmed on location in Tabernas, Almería, Andalucía, Spain and Titanus Appia Studios, Rome, Lazio, Italy (studio). Wonderful initial and ending song by Nino Fidenco who composes a marvelous and unforgettable musical score .

This motion picture also titled ¨Taste of killing¨ ot ¨Per Il gusto di Uccidere¨ (original title) is well directed by Tonino Valeri who was Sergio Leone's assistant . Valeri managed to make a fluid , witty and agreeable SW . Tonino Valeri's so-so direction is well crafted, here he's less cynical and humorous and more inclined toward violence , lots of killings and too much action especially on its ending part . Valeri is an expert on Western as proved in ¨The hired gun ¨ , ¨A reason to live , a reason to die¨ with James Coburn and Telly Savalas , ¨The price of power ¨ with Giuliano Gemma and Van Heflin , ¨The day of anger ¨ with Lee van Cleef , Giuliano Gemma and his greatest success results to be ¨My name is nobody¨ , a classic Spaghetti produced by Sergio Leone with Henry Fonda and Terence Hill .
