The ultimate Spaghetti Western!
13 April 2001 | by (Pinellas Park, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Blindman" has everything a Spaghetti Western fan might desire: shootouts, slimy outlaws, an idiosyncratic hero, beautiful women, and Ringo Starr! That's right, the ex-Beatle himself is prominently featured as a villain in "Blindman". The film follows our blind hero, played by Tony Anthony, in his quest to recover a group of fifty women he was contracted out to deliver to miners in Texas. What ensues is a thoroughly engaging and entertaining piece of Western cinema. Ferdinando Baldi directed the film with an even hand and Riccardo Pallottini lavishly photographed the desert scenery to great effect. Stelvio Cipriani's unique score rounds out the engaging atmosphere of "Blindman". Tony Anthony invites the viewer to come along with his character on his daunting tasks by being immediately sympathetic.

While the film may not be suited for everyone's tastes, those viewers who appreciate a film with a decidedly quirky attitude should enjoy "Blindman" quite a bit. Think of Zatoichi in the Old West by way of Italy and you have a good idea of what to expect from this film. Unabashedly politically incorrect, the film may offend some more sensitive viewers, namely militant feminists, but to this reviewer that is one more reason to seek this unique film out! And seek you will need to do, as "Blindman" is extremely rare even amongst collector's circles. If this film sounds like your cup of tea, it was later remade in an altered form in 3-D as "Comin' At Ya!" and is currently available from Rhino in DVD format and in 3-D to boot. "Blindman" is a film that cries out to be digitally remastered and released on DVD. Hopefully this will happen soon so that more Spaghetti Western fans can witness the awesome spectacle that is "Blindman". Possibly, the ultimate Spaghetti Western!
