Violent and tragic Spaghetti with unexpected final and ordinary actors as Gianni Garco and brief appearance by the great Fernando Sancho
5 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Nice Italian Western with sad atmosphere ,full of feeling ,wonderful musical score and special appearance by the great Fernando Sancho . This is a very entertaining SW from Giovanni Fago and the prolific western and horror screenwriter Ernesto Gastaldi. ¨For one hundred thousand dollars per killing¨ deals with two brothers hate until death since one of them killed their father. The film is set during American Civil War . As the bastard brother is a bounty hunter named Johnny Forest (Gary Hudson or Gianni Garco , usual player on Sartana personage , another famous hero of S.W. )and swears to chase his brother(Claudio Camaso) who is a rebel confederate . Clint Forest has one hundred thousand dollars reward and is wanted : ¨Dead or alive¨ and then he double-cross his band ( Carlo Gaddi, Bruno Corazzari) led by evil Jurago (Piero Lulli) . Johnny Forest, tries to carry out his mother's dying wish that he brings in his outlaw brother, Clint, alive. On the run from Jurago, a former pal he has betrayed , Clint accepts Johnny's help, and agrees to surrender . But his lover ( Claudie Lange))is kidnapped and Forest seeks vengeance .

Acceptable twilight Spaghetti Western with interesting dialogue by the usual Ernesto Gastaldi , splendid cinematography by Federico Zanni and memorable musical score by Nora Orlandi . It's a typical Spaghetti Western in which blends the common scenarios , as invincible and tough antiheroes, difficult and fast showdowns with numerous deceases , impulsive and quick zooms , lots of action , musical score with Morricone influence .The film follows the usual SW plot of an arrogant character that takes on more than he can handle, is humbled (beaten, shot, hung) before he either changes certain elements of his character or learns the secret necessary to ultimately succeed. Ernesto Gastaldi isolated this basic plot in most of his westerns and utilized to again in this movie .

The picture has a certain remembrance to ¨100.000 dollars for a massacre¨(by Romolo Guerrieri) regarding the avenging theme and including Clint Forest character well played by Claudio Camaso , who subsequently committed suicide , he bears remarkable resemblance to his brother Gian Maria Volonte , furthermore Claudio Camaso holding physical likeness and similar playing . Besides, good set decoration filmed in Elios studios and of course Almeria (Spain) . ¨Ten thousand dollars blood money¨ was shot at the same time to ¨For one hundred thousand dollars per killing ¨ with similar artist and technician team and also starred by Gianni Garco , Claudio Camaso and Fernando Sancho . The motion picture finely produced by Mino Loy ,Luciano and Sergio Martino brothers is well directed by Giovanni Fago who also made other S.W. as ¨One more to hell¨ that also starred Claudie Lange , Carlo Gaddi with music by Nino Fidenco and ¨O Cangaceiro¨. Fago had collaborated with Gastaldi before on Vengeance Is Mine (1967) and the next year would direct the Tomas Milian vehicle O Cangaceiro¨ . Rating : Better than average Spaghetti Western .If you are into Italian westerns, you won't be disappointed by this movie
