So-so Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced by Italy/Spain , being regularly directed by Antonio Margheritti and shot in Almeria , of course .
8 August 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Middling Italian-Spanish Western with habitual actors , customary scenarios and realized in Spaghetti/Chorizo style , including hilarious touches here and there . The film displays thrills , noisy action , riding pursuits , shootouts , lots of blow-up , final twist , and being enough entertaining . It is a decent/passable , though mediocre , Macaroni Western starred by acceptable actors from Spaghetti . It stars Joe (a Bond-style starring , being decently played by Rik Van Nutter) who is hired by powerful bankers to get a gold shipment safely through a perilous territory . As Joe is contracted by the USA government to get the gold shipment to its destination , being supported by an old swagger called Sponge (Barta Barri) and a honest sheriff named Stanton (Alfonso Rojas) . Along the way they find all kinds of dangers , treason , and unexpected attacks . Joe is doublé-crossed and targeted by a second outfit of robbers led by a nasty Mexican bandit nicknamed El Sol (Ricardo Palacios) , chasing the shipment of gold , a great number of traitors and corrupt rich businessmen .

Dynamite Joe starts off with colorful opening credits on characters from the film , it tends to center on the protagonist , Rik Van Nutter , dressed in Clint Eastwood's style , including ¨Poncho¨ , who faces off a motley group of villains . Acceptable though middling Pepperoni Western in which a drifter resolves a conflict among nasty robbers that want to take a gold shipment when the US government attempts to transport it in a safe place . All in all , this film is predominantly an Italian film rather than a Spanish one . It's an Italian/Spanish realization , two country co-production but is clearly dominated by the Italian contingent and the traditional leanings of the Spanish producers of the time have their stamp on the entire proceedings . Passable Spaghetti Western realized in traditional as well as comical style with a screenplay written by Maria Carmen Martínez Roman who wrote numerous westerns , such as : Sheriff Won't Shoot , Réquiem for a Gringo , Winchester Bill , In a Colt's Shadow , Fury of Johnny Kid and the classic Django kill ; including amusing dialogue , silly situations , plot twists and turns . Italian-Spanish co-production filmed in Almeria , full of familiar faces , action , exaggerated characters , crossfire and lots of shots . The film packs comical elements , tongue-in-cheek , thrills , shootouts , floods , high body-count and and results to be quite entertaining . It's a middle-budget film with ordinary actors , technicians , decent production values and average results . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up , explosions , or stunts every few minutes . It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between starring Rik Van Nutter and his contenders , Renato Baldini , Ricardo Palacios , adding some thrilling as well as spectacular scenes as when Jim uses dynamite against his enemies .

Sympathetic acting by Rik van Nutter who takes on a band of crooks , unethical banker & his gang . Rik , who often used pseudonym Clyde Rogers , was an actor and writer , known for ¨007's Thunderball¨ (1965), ¨Space Men¨ (1960) , ¨The Revenge of Ivanhoe¨ (1965) , ¨Buffalo Bill Cody¨ (1965) and this one , ¨Dynamite Joe¨ (1967). He was married to Emily Frankel and Anita Ekberg, and he died in 2005 . Sexy female cast members accompany to him , such as Halina Zalewska , and Merce Castro . Support cast is pretty well , filled by intimate faces as Spanish actors : Barta Barry , Ricardo Palacios , Alfonso Rojas , Saturno Cerra , and Italian : Renato Baldini , among others . The picture well photographed by Manuel Merino . However , being necessary a fine remastering because of the film-copy is washed-out . Mostly filmed in atmospheric scenarios on location in Almeria . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction and adequate production design by the usual Teddy Villalba , he creates a good scenario . Very enjoyable musical score by Carlo Savina , including catching songs at the beginning and the end , including a couple of songs by a saloon girl .

This oddball motion picture was professionally directed by Antonio Margheriti , though it has flaws and gaps . Antonio M. Dawson was born in 1930 , Rome, and died in 2002 . He was a director and writer , and especially known for his works with miniatures , explosions and flood sequences . Antonio shoots with ordinary aplomb and being famous for Yor (1983), Virus (1980) and Horror castle (1963) . Italian writer-director of horror and exploitation films, a former university engineering student who began in films in 1956 . He was also an expert in special optical effects , FX , and model-making . Often used the pseudonym 'Anthony M. Dawson'. He directed all kind of genres such as Wartime : The last hunter , Tornado , Code Name : Wild Geese , Commando Leopard , Der Commander ; Sci-Fi : War of planets , Planet on the prowl , Criminali Della Galassia ; Action : Operazione Goldman , Indio , The Squeeze , Cyberflic ; Terror : The Virgin of Nuremberg , Virus or Cannibal Apocalypse , Alien from the Deep , Flesh for Frankestein and Spaghetti : Joko , Dynamite Joe ,The Stranger and the Gunfighter , Take a hard ride , And God Said to Cain .
