"A Hole Between The Eyes" is a spaghetti western that does get a few things right. Needless to say, the title is great and memorable. But the movie also has a effective and sombre musical score by Roberto Pregadio, well chosen locations that look bleak and add a great deal of atmosphere, and the direction sometimes has a minimalist feeling that's striking. Unfortunately, there's not much else that's positive to point out. Anthony Ghidra is totally missing anything resembling charisma; he comes across as an anonymous hired hand instead of a hero. Robert Hundar, who plays the villain, tries, but in the end his bad guy doesn't stand out from most other spaghetti western bad guys. The main problem of the movie is how boring most of it feels. There isn't that much action, and the movie moves at a very slow pace. In the end, the movie is only for spaghetti western scholars who need to see every spaghetti western made in order to be an expert on the subject.
