Spaghetti/Paella Western co-produced between Italy and Spain , starred by customary actors as Steffen , Camardiel and Sambrell
8 January 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Italian/Spanish production full of action , excessive characters , shootouts and lots of violence . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some violence , shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes. The movie gets the usual Western issues, such as avenger antiheroes , violent facing off , exaggerated baddies, soundtrack with Morricone influence , among them . For money, for pleasure, for revenge, he doesn't care why he kills or how . It deals with a dramatic story of a feud between implacable enemies . Arizona Colt (Anthony Steffen) is aware to put a reward on his head for a stagecoach's hold-up he didn't commit . Arizona is wanted ¨dead or alive , reward : 1000 dollars . Arizona along with his partner Double Whiskey (Roberto Camardiel) set out in pursuit the true guilty . They arrive in a little town where Arizona is taken prisoner by a Marshal and he is condemned to hanging . Thanks a trick and helped by Double Whiskey , Arizona escapes . Meanwhile, a band of cutthroats (Raf Baldassarre , Luis Barboo , Fernando Bilbao) led by Chico (Aldo Sambrell) attack a ranch of a powerful baron land (Jose Luis Martin) and kidnap his daughter (Rosalba Neri) . Then Arizona robs their gold boxes and happens a bloody vendetta and reckoning . Colt is double-crossed and imprisoned by the nasties and submitted to cruel tortures . Later on , there takes place some exciting scenes of men fighting to the death .

This Western contains action-packed , ruthless characters , quick-fire , violence , rapacious revenge , slaughter , shoot'em up and results to be quite entertaining , though drags at times , balancing in ups and downs . A good example of Latino western genre from Italy and Spain ; it is daring , a notoriously violent Spaghetti , so extreme in every way , it is one of the handful of Italian Western that abounded in the 60s and early 70s . This moving Spaghetti packs noisy action , thrills , crossfire , twists and turns with exciting final . There is a very odd implementation of shots in the camera work during some particular scenes as the film approaches its climax , as in the ending and the unusual conclusion . "Arizona Si Scatenò.. Li Fece Fuori Tutti" or ¨Arizona Colt returns¨ results to be a following to a character played by Giuliano Gemma in ¨Arizona Colt¨(1966) by Michele Lupo starred by Gemma , Corinne Marchand , Andrea Bosic and again Roberto Camardiel and Rosalba Neri . Well starred by Anthony Steffen , he may be a name best remembered by Spaghetti Western aficionados, but in his day, from the mid-'60s to the early '70s, Steffen was one of the most popular actors of the genre — at the time cheap B movies, now revered cult classics. The handsome, Italian-born — actually at the Brazilian embassy in Rome — Antonio Luiz de Teffè von Hoonholtz began working in films as a studio messenger for Vittorio De Sica. From there, Steffen began acting in sword-and-sandal epics, later moving onto the Western genre, where he found his niche. Unlike fellow Spaghetti star Clint Eastwood, however, Steffen never became a top international box-office attraction. It's a thrilling western with screenplay by the notorious Ernesto Gastaldi , including a breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist Anthony Steffen against the heartless Aldo Sambrell and his hoodlums such as Luis Barboo , Ralph Baldassarre , Dan van Husen and Fernando Bilbao . Exciting Spaghetti Western and it is proceeded in violent style and ordinary narration . The film packs thrills , gunplay and high body-count ; it's fast moving , quite entertaining and including bursting with explosive violence . Being a Spanish/Italian co-production , here appears familiar faces from Chorizo or Paella or Tortilla Western such as Aldo Sambrell , Luis Barboo , Fernando Bilbao and the sympathetic Robert Camardiel as co-starring . Good production design creating an acceptable scenario with luminous outdoors, rocky landscapes under a shinning sun and fine sets by Jose Luis Galicia , habitual production designer of a lot of Westerns shot in Spain . Middling cinematography by Miguel Mila , being necessary a right remastering and filmed on location in Manzanares Del Real , Colmenar , La Pedriza (Madrid) and interior in Elios Studios , Rome . Nice musical score by Bruno Nicolai , usual collaborator to Ennio Morricone , furthermore a catching and emotive leitmotif .

¨Arizona Lets Fly and Kill Everybody" or "Arizona Colt Returns" was regularly directed by the prolific filmmaker Sergio Martino who usually uses pseudonym as Martin Dolman . Talented and versatile writer/director Sergio Martino has made a vast array of often solid and entertaining films in all kind of genres as horror, Giallo , comedy, Western , and science fiction in a career that spans over 40 years . He was especially expert on Western as proved in ¨Mannaja¨ and this ¨Arizona returns¨ and Giallo such as ¨The case of scorpion's tail ¨ , ¨Torso¨ ,¨the scorpion with two tails¨ , ¨The strange vice of Mrs Ward¨ , Cannibal movie as "Mountain of the Cannibal God", Italian crime thrillers as "Violent Professionals" and ¨Sci-Fi as ¨Destroyer¨ , "2019: After the Fall of New York" . Rating: Middling though passable Spaghetti , this is a Ravioli/Chorizo Western in which the camera stalks in moving style throughout a story with decent visual skills . This is a bewildering story , funny in some moment but falls flat , though it will appeal to Spaghetti hardcore fans .
