Spaghetti with Chorizo Western full of silly humor , noisy action and shootouts
25 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This Spanish/Italian co-production results to be a very funny Western about some roguish adventurers who attempt to rob a fortune from a safe. This entertaining film deals with two buddy adventurers (Anthony Steffen , Enrico Maria Salerno) witness a train-robbery by two groups of bandits ( led by Jose Bodalo and Roberto Camardiel , respectively) and are then chasing the robbed gold and they also took Helen (Dominique Boschero) . Mario Caiano's Western parody is packed with frantic action and silly humor . Italian-Spanish co-production full of action , exaggerated characters, crossfire and lots of humor . This Spaghetti Western concerns about robbing a valuable fortune from a train crossing Mexico to American West and the ruler Porfirio Diaz had for pay to US . Then the rogue thieves along with a cocky American (Mark Damon) team up as three unlikely heroes . This is a surprisingly low-key Spaghetti Western in which three diverse characters joining forces to find the safe and rob a lot of money .

This amusing picture with Spaghetti all-star-cast contains an entertaining plot , action Western , shootouts and bits of campy and refreshing humor . It's an improbable blending of standard Western, tongue-in-cheek and continuous pursuits with no sense . A bemusing premise and interesting casting full of usual Spaghetti make this oater well worth the watching . Delightful Western satire in which three grifters Steffen-Salerno-Damon using his wits , breaking all the rules and kicking virtually every cliché in the pants , as he relentlessly deceives, plunders and robs . Amiable but sometimes lumbering Western satire goes on and on about the same premise , as a lot of minutes are superfluous ,it has half hour of excess , as it packs overblown jokes and antics and some moments turns out to be dull and tiring . Steffen and Salerno steal the show as two improbable rogues , there are very fine, they ravage the screen, , hit and run , besides receive violent punches, kicks and are ultimately buried to reveal the gold whereabout . Furthermore, appears ordinary secondaries of Spaghetti/Paella Western as Jose Luis Martin , Aldo Sambrell, Tito Garcia, Rafael Albaicin, Simon Arriga ,Manuel Zarzo, Jose Canalejas Lorenzo Robledo, and many others . The film mingles slapdash, pursuits, high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining. There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing shootouts, fights or stunts every few minutes . The musician Carlo Rustichelli composes a jolly soundtrack with catching leitmotif and well conducted . Mediocre cinematography by Enzo Barboni in Eastmancolor with negative badly processed . Interior filmed at Elios Studios , Rome , and outdoor sequences filmed , of course , at Almeria, Spain. The film follows in the wake of ¨ Hallelujah trail (65) ¨ by John Sturges ¨ Support your local sheriff ¨ and ¨ Support your local gunfighter ¨ by Burt Kennedy and of course ¨ Blazing saddles (74) ¨ by Mel Brooks , all of them are engaging Western satire and very fun . The picture takes part of a sub-genre in which during the period of the late 60s and 70s combined Spaghetti Western and humor with tongue-in-cheek , for example, ¨The white , yellow and black¨ (Sergio Corbucci) , ¨ My name is Shangai Joe¨(Mario Caiano), ¨The stranger and the gunfighter (Anthony M Dawson), ¨ Vivi o, Preferibilmente, morti( by Duccio Tessari , here screen-writer)" and ¨Trinity and Bambino¨ trilogy ( by Enzo Barboni or E. B. Clucher who is cameraman of ¨Train to Durango¨).

Mario Caiano's direction is well crafted, here he's more cynical and humorous and less inclined toward violence and packs too much action , but especially this slapstick Western contains broad comedy . Caiano is a craftsman who has directed all kind of genres as Peplum as ¨Ulisse vs Ercole¨, ¨I due Gladiatori¨, ¨Maciste Gadiatori di Sparta¨ , Spaghetti : ¨Brandy¨, ¨Avenger of California¨ , ¨Ringo, face of revenge¨ , ¨Bullets don't argue¨, ¨Lone and angry man¨ , Terror : ¨Nightmare castle¨, ¨ Eye in the labyrinth¨ and even Pornonazi as ¨Nazi love camp 27¨. It's an offbeat , muddle and uneven Western but will appeal to Spaghetti aficionados . Rating : 5,5 , riotous Western spoof in which there's too much silly comedy and enough excitement .
