Tongue-in-cheek Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced by Italy/Spain stars two American actors : Guy Madison and Tom Bosley
25 April 2017 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This Chorizo/Pasta Western displays laughs , emotion , irony , thrills , stirring adventures , shoot'em up , slapdash , and results to be pretty amusing but mediocre . It is set in the mythical city of Limerick , Montana , a wide-open frontier town where rules by the iron fisted Bullock (Guy Madison) who submits firmly the citizens and possesses an impressive castle transported , sandstone by stone , from Europe . With an army of bandits , led by the diabolical murderer Kossock (Ricardo Garrone) , Bullock enforces a reign of terror without equal in history . Then , the Mayor (José Maria Caffarel) announces an offer by publicizing posters along the town captioning : ¨Wanted sheriff , need enterprising champion of peoples rights to rid small mining town of vicious gunman , slow guns need to apply ; signed : Mayor¨ . The greatest heroes of the West have attempted to stand up to the Monarch of Limerick but all have failed . There turns up Meriweather P. Newberry (Tom Bosley of Happy Days and Charlie's Angels), a mild-mannered traveling doctor who has never been in a gunfight in his life , he says he can turn into a gunslinger to help clean up the town . In a desperate manner , the people of Limerick rest their hopes on him . Unbeknownst to Kossock and his gang , Newberry has decided to use Limerick to try out his newest invention : a mechanical gunslinger , the Bang bang Kid , robot CAX107. Also joining the resistance fighters are the Mayor's daughters : the lovely Gwenda (Sandra Milo) , and the beautiful Betsy (Dianyk Zurawoska), two women who will stop at nothing to avenge the injustice of Bullock's reign .

This amusing , engaging movie is crammed of fist-fights , punches , kicks , moving stunt-work , colorful outdoors and lots of humor . Bang Bang Kid is just a mildly amusing action comedy Western , about on the level of a lesser Bambino/Bud Spencer - Tritinity/Terence Hill movie . This is a nice and funny juvenile story for kiddies with some touches of humor in charge of the mechanical artifact . Sympathetic acting by Tom Bosley as an eccentric inventor who shows up with a mechanical robot . Bosley is top-notch as a likable freewheeling inventor , meanwhile taking on two ominous villains . Likable and ironical performance from Guy Madison as a tyrannical crime lord who has returned mankind to the dark ages . Madison is delightful and enjoyable as a baddie who uses all kinds of tricks and fakes to get his purports . It's a co-production Spanish-Italian and , of course , shot in Spain , on location in Manzanares El Real , La Pedriza , Colmenar Viejo , and a spectacular castle of Manzanares El Real and Madrid surroundings , that is regularly photographed in Eastmancolor by the Spanish Antonio Macasoli , though a perfect remastering is necessary because of the film-copy is washed-out . There are many fine technicians and professional assistant direction and decent production design by the prestigious Wolfgang Burmannn , a magnificent scenario on the town and barren outdoors , dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun and fine sets . The musician Nino Fidenco -Spaghetti Western's usual-, composes an agreeable soundtrack and well conducted and splendid leitmotif ; it's full of attractive sounds and lively score , including catching ballad at the beginning . The motion picture written by José Luis Bayonas was middlingly directed by Giorgio Gentilli (Madigan's Millions) and Luciano Sacripanti (Ragan). Both of whom are director assistants and occasionally filmmakers , shooting a few films .
