Goofs

During the gunfight at the end, the fuse has been burning for a while and should be dozens of feet away but a distant view from above and behind Cat Stevens (Terence Hill) shows the fuse just starting to burn directly behind him. See more »

First violent entry of the Giuseppe Colizzi trilogy with Hill and Spencer
24 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

Again Hill as Cat Stevens and Spencer as Hutch Bessy team up against a baddie named Bill well played by Frank Wolff . Exciting western deals with a gunfighter robber hijacks a payroll train , kills everyone aboard and then stashes his loot . This violent Spaghetti Western oater goes on when Cat Stevens (Terence Hill or Mario Girotti) trying to save himself from a pursuit by nasties . Then meets Hutch (Bud Spencer or Carlo Pedersoli) who proposes him to discover the train robbing , allegedly committed by Bill St Antonio , and the two guys mess with Western baddies . Bill has been killed and holds on his tombstone an inscription captioning : ¨Here lies Bill St Antonio , greatest shot in the world killed by a traitor , otherwise no¨ and he receives a spectacular funeral in New Orleans style . Stevens reunites with Hutch joining forces, confronting baddies. Nevertheless , the heinous villain is alive and seeks revenge , he is a ruthless outlaw and supported by heinous henchmen .

The movie contains gunplay, action Western, bloody spectacle and fist-fights . Terence Hill as a tough gunslinger and Spencer as a bouncing hunk are good but still not personified the Trinity hero characters . At the picture appears usual Spaghetti secondaries who played ordinary characters as villains in numerous Spanish/Italian Western as Jose Luis Martin , Frank Braña , Jose Canalejas , Tito Garcia , Francisco Sanz and Luis Barboo , among others . The film belongs the Giuseppe Colizzi trilogy starred by Hill and Spencer as Cat Stevens and Hutch Bessy . This one is the first , superior and the best outing ; the second installment is ¨Four gunmen of Ave Maria or Ace high ¨ with the great Elli Wallach and more camp tendencies ; and the third is ¨Boot Hill¨ with Woody Strode and less of a budget . The film is produced by DÁmbrossio and accompanied by a musical score by Carlo Rustichelli with an enjoyable leitmotif . The movie is finely photographed by Alfio Contini, and of course is shot in Almeria , Spain, location where were filmed hundreds Western in the 60s and 70s . This motion picture also titled ¨God forgives¨ will appeal to Hill and Spencer fans and S.W. aficionados.
