The DVD edition in 3D, widescreen 2:35 and dolby surround is a must and gives credit to this good western.
A so-so screenplay with a hero exploring his dark side while he seeks revenge...but describing a bunch of helpless women screaming at the view of some poorly animated bats. A bit macho stuff, but quite professionally handled.
The essential is in the cinematography : not much dialogue but everything is on the screen, the images speak for themselves. They don't need dialogue to explain what's going on. In that way, Ferdinando BALDI is a great director: not many are capable of this.
As for the 3D, some actions are quite powerful (the explosions, the fire...) some others especially shot for the 3D experience then not necessary.
Victoria ABRIL brings a feminine touch which was really needed.
But a good entertainment indeed.
