Acceptable Paella/Spaghetti Western co-produced by Spain/Italy and starred by three usual stars : Hill , Sancho and Braña
25 October 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Action-filled Spaghetti , littered with killings , shootouts , riding pursuits , brawls , revenge , romance , cross and doublé-crosses . Maccaroni Western performed by habitual secondary actors , as it stars Fernando Sancho , Angel Aranda , Ivano Staccioli , among others . Here stands out Craig Hill , his role is well performed , he plays a relentless gunslinger using mercilessly his gun , a violent veteran who seeks justice , an usual plot in Spaghetti western . It is set shortly after the American Civil War , since the banditry is becoming uncontrollable , being increasingly frequent the outlaw incursions , then the transportation company Wells Fargo hires some deputies-bounty hunters , to protect themselves against the attacks and assaults on stagecoaches carried out by cruel bandits . One of these deputies results to be an ex-sheriff named Jeff Sullivan (Craig Hill) , with a particular zeal in the matter because the ruthless bandit Glenn Kovacks (Frank Braña) with his gang murdered barbarously some time ago to his wife . In addition , Pancho Corrales (Fernando Sancho) , a brutal and ironic gunfighter who is also on the trail of Kovacs for Wells Fargo . Sullivan pursues relentlessly enemies and he gets rid of his contenders one by one and tries to execute his vendetta . Along the way Jeff meets Dan Baker (Angel Aranda) and a beautiful young woman (Maria Pia Conte) whose father is murdered . In the process , Baker falls in love for Susan who heals him some injures . As Sullivan finds out that the Dan Barker's malevolent brother is the real killer his spouse . At the end takes place the violent taking on , it ends with a great deal of deaths and a strong annihilation .

This Chorizo/Pasta Western is running out of ideas a bit ; nevertheless , it is still good enough to be fun . This moving tortilla/Ravioli flick packs shootouts , thrills , violent confrontations and riding pursuits . Italian-Spanish co-production filmed in Catalunya , full of familiar faces , assaults , exaggerated characters , gun-down , lots of shots and fights . Starring Craig Hill as an ex-sheriff become a merciless avenger and he vows vendetta when finds his wife has been killed by a greedy murderer , he then will revenge himself and set the townsfolk free from the nasty villain . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between Craig Hill , Fernando Sancho and Frank Braña with some looks that say it all , including an exciting ending . Here Graig Hill is pretty nice as Jeff Sullivan , another hero of second class in the S.W. genre . His role is well performed , he plays as a cruel avenger but upright gun-shooter, a violent veteran who seeks a bloody vendetta , an ordinary plot in Spaghetti/Paella Western . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as it is full of fury , sadism , bloodbaths , and close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . Recently deceased Craig Hill gives a subdued performance but adequate to his character . The notorious Spaghetti/Paella actor , Craig Hill is good in his customary brave role , here playing a tough ex-sheriff/bounty hunter/deputy turned into a terrible revenger when his spouse is wrongly murdered by the killer Kovacks/Braña and his hoodlums . Craig Hill played a lot of Spaghetti , his first Western was ¨Hands of a Gunfighter" or ¨Ocaso De Un Pistolero¨ , he went on playing : "Seven Pistols for a Massacre" , "Rick and John¨ , ¨Conquerors of the West¨ , ¨Bounty hunter¨ , "I Want Him Dead" , "Fifteen Scaffolds for the Killer" , "Three Crosses of Death" , ¨Bury Them Deep¨ "I want him dead¨, and this ¨The Crows Will Dig Your Grave" or "Los Cuervos Cavarán Tú Fosa" . His main enemy is rightly performed by Fernando Sancho and Frank Braña , both of whom interpreting two cruelly baddie roles are terrific , they previously and subsequently would play similar characters . And special mention for the great Fernando Sancho who gives a nice acting as the malicious as well as sympathetic bounty hunter Pancho Corrales . Here appear important secondaries from Spaghetti/Tortilla/Chorizo or Paella Western , these are the followings : Maria Pia Conte as a beautiful countrywoman who loves Angel Aranda , Dominique Boschero , Ivano Staccioli , Raf Baldassarre , Gaspar 'Indio' González , Juan Torres.

Being regularly photographed by Giancarlo Ferrando in Eastmancolor . Mostly filmed in atmospheric though poor scenarios on location in Matadepera , vicinity of Barcelona , Cataluña , Fraga , (Huesca) , similar to Almeria , and a Western village located in ¨Spugles De Llobregat¨ built by Balcazar Productions and in Rome, Lazio, Italy , as well as interiors filmed in Elios studios . Enjoyable musical score by Bruno Nicolai , usual collaborator to Morricone . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Juan Bosch . He managed to make a fluid and filled with thrills , duels , attacks , and shots , though average and in low budget . Juan was a Spanish craftsman , writing and directing ; working from the 60s in all kind of genres and B movies such as Spaghetti Western : ¨Dallas¨, "God in Heaven, Arizona on Earth¨, "And the Crows Will Dig Your Grave" , "My Horse, My Gun, Your Widow" ,¨Ciudad Maldita¨, ¨They Believed He Was No Saint" , "Stagecoach of the Condemned" ; Giallo : "The Killer Wore Gloves" , "On the Edge" or "The Killer with a Thousand Eyes" ; Comedy : Mauricio Mon Amour¨, ¨40 Años Sin Sexo¨, ¨Caray Con Divorcio¨ , ¨Rolls Para Hipolito¨ and Terror : ¨Exorcismo¨, ¨Secta Siniestra¨ . Rating : 5.5/10 , mediocre but entertaining , though sometimes embarrassing . If you like Chorizo , Paella , Tortilla , Butifarra or Spaghetti westerns , this one remains lightly watchable .
