Trivia

Burt Reynolds only agreed to make this film because he was under the impression that Sergio Leone would be directing. When he found out it was Sergio Corbucci he tried to pull out, but the contracts had already been signed and it was too late. See more »

An Italian-Spanish co-production full of action , exaggerated characters, shootouts and lots of violence
27 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

For money, for pleasure, for revenge, he doesn't care why he kills or how ¡ . The sole survivor ,named Navajo Joe (Burt Reynolds), of a slaughter and atrocity executes a single-handedly revenge, slashes, burn , ravage and kills each person involved in the massacre . He is relentless in his vendetta , deadly in his violence. The conflict is a simple one between avenger Indio and oppressors, nasties bandits (Aldo Sambrell). Meanwhile Navajo Joe aids an unappreciated although terrorized little town called Esperanza City in the process. The town is inhabited by important people as the banker named Blackwood (Angel Alvarez), the priest(Fernando Rey), the doctor (Peter Cross) and a gorgeous mestizo girl (Nicoletta Machiavelli), among others. Navajo is submitted a tempestuous trap and is caught and he suffers incredible tortures .

It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist Burt Reynolds and the enemy Aldo Sambrell and his hoodlums. Burt Reynolds is fine, he ravages the screen, he jumps, bounds and leaps, hit and run , besides receives violent punches, kicks , lashes and is ultimately hung. Reynolds told this one is his worst film but I think it turns out to be a good Spaghetti Western. Aldo Sambrell as a cruelly baddie role is terrific, this is his only acting as starring, subsequently the would play very secondary or minimum characters. Furthermore, appears usual secondaries Italian/Spanish Western as Alvaro De Luna, Simon Arriaga, Rafael Albaicin,Lorenzo Robledo, and of course Fernando Rey in ordinary role as priest. The film blends violence, blood, tension, high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining. There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing a shootout or stunt every few minutes. There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction as Ruggero Deodato, future Cannibal Holocaust, and production designer Eduardo De la Torre Fuente who creates an excellent scenario with barren outdoors, dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun and a fine set on the Indian cemetery . The musician Ennio Morricone, Lee Nichols, composes a nice soundtrack and well conducted ; it's full of guttural sounds and Indian screams. Striking cinematography by Silvano Ippoliti in Technicolor, Techniscope with negative well processed . Interior filmed at Dino De Laurentiis Cinematografica, Studios Rome and outdoor sequences filmed at Torremocha, Colmenar, Guadix and of course Almeria, Spain.

Sergio Corbucci's direction is well crafted, here he's less cynical and humorous and more inclined toward violence and too much action, other Western contain broad comedy . He made several Spaghetti classics: ¨ Django¨, ¨The great silence¨, ¨Hellbenders¨, ¨The specialist¨ , and Zapata Western as ¨The Mercenary¨, ¨The Compañeros¨ and ¨What am I doing in middle of the revolution¨ . In addition Sergio directed other inferior S.W. as ¨Far West story¨ ,¨Johnny Oro¨, ¨The white the yellow an the black¨ and ¨Minnesota Clay¨.
