"Vengeance Is a Dish Eaten Cold" is a passable Western about a bloody vengeance against Indians
28 March 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Acceptable Spaghetti dealing with usual theme : a relentless revenge . La vendetta è un Piatto Che Si serve Freddo" (Italy original title) or "Death's Dealer" (USA title) deals with a small boy named Jim Bridger saw his father (Enzo Fiermonte) killed by Indians . Years later Jim (Leonard Mann) has grown up to be an outlaw and is killing Indians whenever he can. Many years later, he aware how to shoot as he kills any Indian he meets for blind vendetta . He seeks vengeance and carries out a cruel slaughter . As Bridger pulls off his vengeance by means of a cruel manner , scalping and selling long hairs , as he executes a massacre and atrocity , he proceeds a single-handedly revenge , and kills each Indian involved on his way . He is relentless in his vendetta , deadly in his violence . When Jim find out the true executioner of the grisly killings occurs the predictable battle of wits . The conflict is simple , one between avenger Jim Bridger against also relentless killers such as the baron land Perkins (Ivan Rassimov) and editor Prescott (Klaus Kinski) never hesitating to kill.

It's an exciting western titled "Vengeance Trail¨ with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist Leonard Mann and the enemies Ivan Rassimov , Klaus Kinski and hoodlums . Both of them are fine, they ravage the screen , kill , betray , hit and run , and ultimately takes places a final surprise . This thrilling western titled "Three Amens for Satan" or "Vengeance Is a Dish Served Cold" (USA title) contains a story full of violence , good dramatic pace and slick direction though packs some flaws . Enjoyable Spaghetti Western ; 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 moving western with spectacular outdoors and breathtaking confrontation among heartless protagonists , Leonard Mann , and his nasty nemesis and slimy , menacing underlings . Decent action sequences with rousing crossfire and spectacularly bloody shootouts at the end . Charismatic performance for whole casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , Leonard Mann , is good in his usual tough as well as silent role, he starred 3 decent Spahetti : ¨Gunmen of Ave Maria¨, ¨Ciakmull¨ and this one . His contender played by Ivan Rassimov starred some Western as "Don't Wait, Django... Shoot!" , ¨Cjamango¨ , but subsequently played Cannibal movies . Fantastic performance by the always great Klaus Kinski here in his ordinary role as a villain and in a cruelly baddie character as an ambitious editor . There appears as habitual secondaries in Italian Western such as Steffen Zacharias who acted in classic "They Call Me Trinity" , Enzo Fiermonte and Pietro Torrisi who as Peter McCoy played in the 80s several sword and witchery movies .

The musician Piero Umiliani composes an attractive 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 , including catching songs and ballads sung by Monica Miguel . Nice cinematography by Angelo Lotti , including good sets, filmed on locations in Rome, Lazio, Italy and Elios studios . The motion picture was decently directed by Pasquale Squitieri , under pseudonym William Redford , though contains some gaps and flaws. Pasquale was longtime companion of actress Claudia Cardinale , who usually played his films , and father of Claudia their daughter . He is a writer and director, especially known for Atto Di Dolore (1990), Russicum (1988) and Mussolini's lover (1984). He also made another Western titled 1970 ¨Django dares Sartana¨ as William Redford and wrote/ directed a lot of movies dealing with Italian Mafia such as 1988 Russicum , 1985 "Il Pentito" or "The Repenter , 1978 L'arma , 1978 Corleone , 1977 Il Prefetto di Ferro , 1975 El Ambicioso or "The Climber" , 1974 I Guappi , 1972 Camorra ; many of them starred by his wife Claudia Cardinale and notorious Spaghetti actor Giuliano Gemma .
