Spanish-Italian co-production with Spaghett-hero as Peter Lee Lawrence against evil Aldo Sambrell
12 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

An Italian-Spanish co-production full of action , exaggerated characters, gun-play and lots of violence . For money, for pleasure, for revenge, he doesn't care why he kills or how ¡ . The sole survivor ,named Sando Kid (Peter Lee Lawrence), of a Northern slaughter seeks vendetta . After suffering atrocity Kid executes a single-handedly revenge, hits , ravage and kills each person involved in the massacre . He is relentless in his vendetta , deadly in his violence. Sando enlists Texas Rangers , hunts outlaws (Luis Barboo) and meets a sympathetic bounty hunter (Espartaco Santoni). The conflict is simple one between avenger Kid and a Baron land (Aldo Sambrell)and his hoodlums ,oppressors, nasty bandits . Meanwhile Kid aids an unappreciated although terrorized little town called Springfield City in the process. The town is inhabited by important people as the banker , the priest , the sheriff and a gorgeous woman (Helga Line), among others. Kid is submitted a tempestuous trap and is caught .

It's an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist Peter Lee Lawreence and the enemy Aldo Sambrell and his underlings. Peter Lee is fine, he ravages the screen, he jumps, shoots , hit and run , besides receives violent punches, kicks , and ultimately takes the law on his own hands. Aldo Sambrell as a cruelly baddie role is terrific, this is his only acting as starring along with ¨Joe Navajo Joe¨ by Sergio Corbucci with Burt Reynolds, subsequently Sambrell would play very secondary or minimum characters. Comic relief in charge of Spartaco Santoni, also producer , as likable bounty hunter . Furthermore, appears usual secondary actors from Italian/Spanish Western as Simon Arriaga, Joe Canalejas, Luis Barboo, Lorenzo Robledo , and several others. The film blends violence, blood, tension, high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining. There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing a shootout or stunt every few minutes . This is an average Spaghetti Western with some moments genuinely entertaining if you can avoid thinking too much. Follows the exploits of Sando Kid in SW usual theme, the revenge , in addition the starring attempts save his reputation and help unfortunates . Mediocre performances seem badly dated today . There are many fine technicians , nice assistant direction and screen-players as Sergio Bergonzelly and Jose Maria Elorrieta .The musician Alessandro Alessandroni composes a vibrant soundtrack and well conducted ; it's full of guttural sounds and catching leitmotif . Atmospheric scenario with barren outdoors, dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun and a fine sets with striking cinematography in Eastmancolor with negative well processed . Interior filmed at Ballesteros Studios (Madrid), De Paolis Studios (Rome) and outdoor sequences filmed at Colmenar Viejo and of course Almeria, where in the 60s and 70s were shot innumerable Spaghetti . The motion picture is middlingly directed by Leon Klimovski , a craftsman who directed all kind genres, as Terror for Paul Naschy (Marshall of hell,Rebellion of dead one,Orgy of vampires, Werewolf shadow,Dr Jekill vs. the werewolf), Warlike (June 44 attack force Normandy, A bullet for Rommel, Bridge over Elba) and Western(Badland drifter,Some dollars for Django, Torrejon city ,Death knows no time, Two thousand dollars for Coyote). Rating: 4,5 ; regular but entertaining.
