Unexceptional spaghetti western
24 June 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Probably the one factor that may attract western fans to "Red Blood, Yellow Gold" is the fact that one of the stars is Edd "Kookie" Byrnes from the television show "77 Sunset Strip". Whether you think that Byrnes will bring some campiness or not, most likely you'll be disappointed in the way the movie uses him. Nothing in the movie makes him stand out from the three other characters he's paired up with in this done-to-death plot (a search for gold). Even if you happen to be a spaghetti western fanatic, chances are you'll still be let down by this movie. It's slow-moving, with scenes that have little to no consequence, showing how padded this old plot is. Also, the last third of the movie is somewhat confusing, with various adversaries getting all mixed up in a way that makes you wonder who is who and what each person wants. Not the worst western made, but nothing about it makes it worth seeing.
