Acceptable Paella/Spaghetti Western by Alfonso Balcazar , being compellingly co-produced by Spain/Italy
6 December 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Passable Tortilla/Spaghetti Western co-produced between Balcázar Producciones Cinematográficas and Doria . The film packs father-son relationship , violence , thrills , crossfire and turns out to be decent . Afonso Balcazar directs the Spanish Jorge Martin and the German Kinski in this tale of revenge and forgiveness about a bounty hunter named Scott (Klaus Kinski , he steals the show as a relentless Pistolero) who sets out in pursuit an outlaw (Jorge Martin , renamed Trinity in some countries) . As Trinity is a gunman who goes back to his little town he leaved years earlier to find that his wife and children have moved away from his bad reputation . In order to make amends Trinity tries to rekindle their love for his spouse (Marina Malfatti) . As Scott looks for the pursued bandit with a reward on his head . Meantime , Slim (Daniel Martin) and his band rob a bank , but there unfortunately appears Arnold McKinley (Luis Induni) and he his blamed for robbing , being detained by the Sheriff (Gaspar Indio Gonzalez) and led to gallows . The bounty hunter Scott tracks Trinity down and forces him to return to his violent ways in order to protect himself and his family . Meanwhile , Trinity attempts to be accepted by his family that he abandoned years earlier .

¨ Il Ritorno Di Clint Il Solitario " stunningly starred by George Martin who goes back as Clint , an ex-gunslinger desperately wanting to be forgiven his previous crimes and misdemeanours . It is an exciting Chorizo or Tortilla western that contains a story full of violence , good dramatic pace and slick direction . This sequel to the popular spaghetti western "Clint the Stranger" was released four years after the success of the first film and essentially uses the same screenplay . Agreeable Butifarra-Spaghetti Western mostly produced by Spain and Italian secondary participation ; it follows the Sergio Leone wake , including close-up , zooms , choreographic duels and no being proceeded in American style . All in all, this film is predominantly a Spanish film rather than an Italian one. It's a two country co-production but is clearly dominated by the Spanish contingent and the traditional leanings of the Spanish producers of the time have their stamp on the entire proceedings . The Spanish westerns of this era were far more likely to try and emulate their American source material than cultivate a distinctive style of their own the way the Italians were doing but their product, though here is developed in violent Spaghetti wake . The film packs action , shootouts , drama , high body-count and it's fast moving , being quite entertaining and approaching increasingly Leone Italian style , but keeping some details that make it special in this particular genre . It's a thrilling western with spectacular scenes and breathtaking confrontation among protagonist George Martin and heartless enemies as Daniel Martin . It's a middle-budget film with good actors , technicians, production values and pleasing results . Charismatic performance for whole casting . The notorious Spaghetti actor , George or Jorge Martin is good in his usual tough role , here as Trinity , an ex-gunslinger desperately wanting to be forgiven and unfortunately for him , a ruthless bounty hunter is on his trail. Jorge worked much for Alfonso Balcazar's factory such as ¨Clint the strange¨, ¨The return the Clint¨, ¨Oeste Nevada Joe¨, Thompson 1880¨ , ¨Taste of killing¨, ¨A pistol for Ringo and this ¨The return of Ringo¨ . Nice acting by always great Klaus Kinski who gives his ordinary twisted acting . One major differences in the plot when compared to the first film is the addition of Klaus Kinski as a ruthless bounty hunter . Kinski performed a lot of Spaghettis as A as Z style . In the film appears familiar faces from Tortilla or Spaghetti Western such as Daniel Martin , Gaspar 'Indio' González , Marina Malfatti , Manuel Muñiz Pajarito , Mara Krupp and Luis Induni . Evocative cinematography by Jaume De Casas , but a correct remastering being necessary . Being mostly filmed in a Western village located in ¨Splugues De Llobregat¨ , it resulted to be the location where were shot lots of Western produced and directed by Catalan people as Alfonso Balcazar , J.J. Balcazar , Jose Antonio De La Loma , Juan Bosch, Ignacio F. Iquino , Jose Maria Zabalza and Julio Buchs , among others , because Almeria was too far and the landscapes bear remarkable resemblance . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction and excellent production design by the usual Juan Albert Soler , he creates a good scenario . Very enjoyable musical score by maestro Ennio Morricone , including catching leitmotif .

¨Ël Retorno De Clint El Solitario¨ or ¨"A Noose Is Waiting for You Trinity" or "The Return of Clint the Stranger" or "There's a Noose Waiting for You Trinity!" was professionally directed by Alfonso Balcazar , though with no originality ; he managed to make a fluid and passable SW , though sometimes mediocre . Alfonso alongside his brothers Juan Jose Balcazar and Francisco Balcázar produced and directed a lot of Chorizo or Butifarra Western , most of them starred by Jorge Martin or George Martin , Luis Davila , Daniel Martin or Robert Woods ; such as 1972 The return of Clint , 1972 Judas... ¡Toma Monedas! , 1968 Sartana no Perdone or Sonora , 1967 With Death on Your Back, 1966 Dinamita Jim , 1965 Doc , Manos De Plata , 1965 Viva Carrancho , 1965 Five Thousand Dollars on One Ace . Rating : 5'5/10 . Average though some moments acceptable . If you like traditional Spaghetti westerns remains watchable .
