His wish will not be granted as the the two sworn enemies constantly reconnect, rob a bank together and go through a million adventures while hating each other's guts... Written by Guy Bellinger

very entertaining
20 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a comedy that is balanced with enough serious action to make it a solid Euro-western.

Giuliano Gemma is excellent as usual in this film. So is George Eastman and the rest of the cast. The movie is very well-made, and the story is very good. The first half of the film is mainly a comedy about a couple of small-time bandits that have a love-hate friendship. The comedy hits the mark for the most part, thanks to the excellent acting and the overall quality of the movie. During the second half, the action really heats up, and the story becomes more interesting.

The music score is also excellent.

For those like me who enjoy seeing weird characters in westerns, there is a sheriff who for no logical reason constantly talks about people picking their noses. It's idiotically bizarre, which is a good thing in a spaghetti western. I laughed harder at that than any other part of the movie.

This Euro-western is definitely one to see.
