This western is set in Valencia, Spain at the end of the 19th century, and stars Terence Hill as a close-mouthed gunslinger. The bad guy is the local landlord and aristocrat (Fernando Rey), who horribly abuses the laborers in his community. Written by
European western from the serious end of the scale is not altogether equal to it's pretensions.
As befits Camus, one of the more talented and purposeful Spanish film directors whose work we have been able to glimpse despite the miserable English language distribution given Hispanic material, "Collera del Vento", at least in it's English dubbed "Revenge of Trinity" version, tries for atmosphere and organises it's intrigue round a Marxist movement among the peons.
The cast is good with Hill and Gimpera looking great and individual sequences are atmospherically staged but the film needs more action to liven up its near two hours mainly made up of of brooding introspection. Dumb English lines like "The only thing they understand is the whip" don't help either. Fernando Rey shows up late and with an unsuitable English voice.
Hill isn't playing his jolly Trinity character despite the re-titling.
