Way too traditional and basic western. Even boring from time to time
I love spaghetti westerns and it doesn't need to be famous just to be good so I expected at least something from this movie. Beginning was very promising: dusty road, shrieking wind, howling dog, lurking gunmen and no lines at all. I said to myself: "This might be excellent". After the movie actually started, disappointment was my main feeling.
"Lo chiamavano Mezzogiorno /The Man called Noon" turned out to be highly usual, typical western - not extremely bad but not special in any way. I've seen hundreds of films like this. There were couple of truly stylish camera angles here and there but that was just about it. This is a disposable western. You can watch it once as a time-killer and then forget it.
