Cain/Abel Western with Flashbacks
8 February 2009 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

Fans of Italian Western will know Gianni Garko (aka Gerry Hudson) as Western Hero Sartana in many of his later movies. The first scene with the wonderful Fernando Sancho will remind you on Sartana but this time Gianni Garko will be another main Character. In "Per 100,000 dollari ti ammazzo" he is Johnny Forest (in some alternate Version round the world Django) a man who was accused to have killed his father by his brother. After years in prison he became a bounty hunter and his brother an outlaw. Johnny Forest chases his brother. The background to the Cain/Abel story is set place during the civil war. There are several interesting scenes including brutality of war and melodramatic sequences. As there are some flashback scenes and some atmospheric scenes in a ghost town. These flashbacks are the highlights of this movie and important for the story of the main characters. Overall the music score is very good but in the flashback scenes a bit too overwhelming.

If "100.000 dollari ti ammazzo" will remind you on another western with Garko you probably have watched "10.000 dollari ti un massacre". More or the less the same cast was used in both movies. If you would like to see a Western with full time action and cynical one liner all the time this one isn't really for you. There are of course several shootouts but not as much as in other contributions. The mixture of action and drama is well balanced. Watch out for the duel it's outstanding for a Western. The revenge with a gold treasure might be not unusual for this genre but with all these dreamlike flashbacks from the main character it's a fresh look.

If you are looking for Westerns from Italy with lesser Action but more Story and atmospheric scenes "100.000 dollari di ammazzo" should be for you.
