Final installment from ¨Cuchillo trilogy¨ and again a magnificent Tomas Milian
This sequel is the third part from ¨Sergio Sollima trilogy¨ , starred by Tomas Milian , as roguish Cuchillo and formed by ¨Big gundown¨, ¨Face to face¨ and this one . Now as absolute starring , Tomas Milian supported by Donald O'Brien in similar role to Lee Van Cleef from ¨Big gundown¨ . It's set during early Mexican revolution with Porfirio Diaz governing , approximately in 1910s . The McGuffin is a hidden treasure by Benito Juarez beyond frontier . The revolutionaries aren't Pancho Villa or Emilio Zapata , but is an imaginary Santillana , well performed by John Ireland in a brief acting . The Cuban Tomas Milian, as usual, puts faces, grimaces, crying and overacting , but he plays splendidly . Enjoyable appearance by also Cuban , the gorgeous Chelo Alonso, usual of Peplum and Western : ¨The good, the bad and the ugly¨. Furthermore, there appears Italian Western usual secondaries as Jose Torres , Gianni Rizzo, Luciano Rossi and Rick Boyd.
This Zapata-Western is inferior than previous entries but displays stirring adventures , shootouts, riding pursuits and is pretty amusing . Sensitive musical score by Bruno Nicolai , replacing the great Ennio Morricone , former films composer . Colorful and evocative cinematography by Mancori , showing marvelously the habitual Almeria (Spain) outdoors. The picture was well directed by Sergio Sollima that would be his last Western and following directing successes such as ¨Sandokan¨.
