More than a bucket of blood?
6 July 2007 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

More than a bucket of blood promises the German title of the movie: "Ein Sarg voll Blut" means "a coffin filled with blood". Needless to say there is no such thing in the movie. Django and Bull, two gunmen with nothing else to do, look for a woman who knows the secret of a gold treasure. Quite a lot of baddies want to lay their hands on the gold, too, of course - not an unusual story, but "Il momento di uccidere" still is a spaghetti western above average due to excellent camera work and editing plus the ironic, yet very tough George Hilton starring as Django. Horst Frank ("Preparati la bara") is among the villains, while Walter Barnes plays Django's partner as such a rogue you wonder how he happened to be one of the good guys. Loni von Friedl acts convincingly as the pretty heiress who has more than one secret to hide. A movie without any serious flaws, really.
