Ivan Rassimov competes for his gold against Piero Lulli and Livio Lorenzon
13 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The hundreds of spaghetti westerns, typically enjoyable escapism, when rated as movies fall into three categories: A, B and C. A are the top tier ones that have those special qualities through and through in all departments of a picture. Perhaps 10-15% of the 700 or so movies in this genre will be rated as such by fans of the genre, and they will disagree. Then there is a broad tier of solid movies that make up the majority. These do not have all the intricate credentials, spark and originality of story, scenery, action, character, suspense, photography, direction, music, acting, etc, that the top ones have; but they still deliver some goods. They can be recommended. They have some memorable qualities, but they also have parts that blur into forgetfulness and sameness. Then there is a lower tier, the C tier, where the movie is quite bad, more of a curiosity, and definitely deficient in a number of ways.

"Cjamango" is in the B category. Like many such westerns, gold is the quarry. Rassimov wins some gold in a card game, but before he can walk away with it, the saloon is shot up by two different gangs, led by Piero Lulli and Livio Lorenzon. Rassimov then has one objective: recover his gold. Along the way, there's a stranger dressed in black (Mickey Hargitay) and a beautiful, shapely and sultry woman (Helene Chanel) with enchanting eyes, hair and face. There's also an orphaned boy that latches on to Rassimov at times. There are several major shoot-ups in which the body count is very large. Cjmango at other times thinks nothing of gunning down 3-4 men at a time.

The story holds together and holds our interest. The actors give us the archetypes, dressed to do so, gruff, ever ready to shoot it out, strong, silent and mysterious or sadistically cruel, or conniving. The film's widescreen print looks good.
