Mostly dull Spaghetti Western
29 June 2009 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

The main reason I prefer Spaghetti Westerns to American ones is because the Spaghetti ones are generally far more entertaining. That's not the case here. The Moment to Kill is undoubtedly one of the most dull westerns I've ever had the misfortune to watch, and the film is made all the more disappointing by the fact that it could have been good! The story is certainly derivative, but similar ones have lead to great westerns before and after this film. Basically, we focus on a pair of gunslingers; Lord and Bull, that go after some treasure with only a book and a young crippled girl to go on. The film is very dark; but I don't mean in terms of the plot, I mean in terms of the picture; a lot of it takes place at night and I often found myself wondering exactly what was going on. The story gets boring very fast and this is mostly due to the tepid relationship between the central characters. George Hilton takes the role of Lord, but mostly looks bored; and he is joined by Walter Barnes as his partner. The two look odd on screen together and it doesn't work very well. There are not many noteworthy scenes, and even the many shootouts get boring before long. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this film to even the biggest Western fans.
