Violent Paella Western by Joaquin , Carlos and Rafael Romero Marchent brothers
21 October 2011 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

¨Garringo¨ or ¨I Morti Non si Contano" or ¨The dead cannot be counted¨ is a passable Chorizo Western well realized by one of the best Paella Western director , Rafael Romero Marchent . For money, for pleasure, for revenge , he doesn't care why he kills or how ¡ . The film deals with a little boy named Johnny whose daddy is shot by soldiers. He then is adopted by a sheriff (Jose Bodalo) and seeks vengeance . Many years later, he aware how to shoot as he kills any army soldier he meets for blind vendetta . The general of the local fort assigns a dangerous mission to jailed lieutenant Garringo (Anthony Steffen) to resolve the murderous who kills cavalry soldiers . As Garringo carries out his assignment by means of a cruel manner , as the officer executes a slaughter and atrocity , he pulls off a single-handedly revenge, slashes, , ravages and kills each person involved in the massacre . He is relentless in his vendetta , deadly in his violence . When Garringo find out the executioner of the grisly killings occurs the predictable battle of wits . The conflict is simple , one between avenger Garringo against also relentless killer Johnny (Peter Lee Lawrence) , never hesitating to kill. It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist Anthony Steffen and the enemy Peter Lee Lawrence and his hoodlums . Both of them are fine, they ravage the screen, they jump, bounds and leaps, hit and run , besides receive violent punches, kicks , and ultimately takes places a breathtaking showdown .

This exciting western contains a story full of violence , good dramatic pace and slick direction . Enjoyable Chorizo-Spaghetti Western mostly produced by Spain and Italian secondary participation ; it follows the Sergio Leone wake , including close-up , zooms , choreographic duels and no being proceeded in American style . The film packs action , shootouts , drama , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . It's a thrilling western with spectacular outdoors and breathtaking confrontation among heartless protagonists , Anthony Steffen and Peter Lee Lawrence ; and both of them against the Raf Baldasarre and his underlings . Acceptable action sequences with rousing crossfire and spectacularly bloody shootouts . Charismatic performance for whole casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , Anthony Steffen is good in his usual tough role . photo) Anthony Steffen 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. Fantastic performance by the always great Jose Bodalo in a likable role , famous for ¨Django¨ he subsequently would play similar characters ; furthermore the slimy, menacing outlaw played by Ralf Baldassarre, here in his ordinary role as bandit and in a cruelly baddie character . There appears as habitual secondaries in Spanish/Italian Western such as Lorenzo Robledo, Luis Induni , Luis Barboo , Tito Garcia , Barta Barry, Alfonso Rojas ,Frank Braña who still continues playing , and of course , Carlos Romero Marchent , Joaquin and Rafael's brother who used to work in their films . The musician Marcello Giombini composes a nice soundtrack , well conducted , this turns out to be one of the most memorable parts of the movie , as it's plenty of enjoyable sounds and haunting musical background and with agreeable leitmotif . Very nice cinematography ,including good sets, filmed on locations in Cuenca, Castilla-La Mancha, Madrid , La Pedriza, ,Soria, Castilla y León, Spain and Rome, Lazio, Italy .

The motion picture was professionally directed and in personal style by Rafael Romero Marchent at his best and written by his brother Joaquin Romero Marchent. Rafael is an expert writer and director of Spaghetti Western as proved in ¨Two crosses on Danger Pass¨, Cry for revenge¨ and ¨Two guns for two twins¨ . While his brother Joaquin Marchent is deemed the Paella Western's best director , his first film was ¨El Coyote¨ and the sequel titled ¨Revenge of Coyote¨ shot in Mexico ; after that , he filmed ¨The shadow of Zorro¨ and ¨Revenge of Zorro¨, he went go directing Western as ¨ Riding to death ¨ , ¨Adventures in the West¨ , ¨Three good men¨, ¨Sabor Venganza ¨ and the most popular and violent ¨Condenados a Vivir¨ . Plus , he wrote for his brother Rafael Romero Marchent the followings Western : ¨Manos Torpes¨, ¨Ocaso Un Pistolero¨ and ¨Garringo¨ . Rating : Passable and acceptable , though contains some flaws and gaps and excessive zooms . Worthwhile watching for the Spaghetti Western aficionados .
