In order to put an end to the numerous ambushes on the gold transports which are a real menace to the finances of the American government, the agent Joe Ford, called Dynamite Joe due to his liking for explosives, is entrusted with controlling the next transfer.
What I will say in this one's defence is that it felt a little different for a spaghetti western. The tone was completely at odds for what we have come to expect from these types of films, with a central character who doesn't have deadly gun skills but instead is a dab hand with a stick of dynamite! Despite (or maybe because of) these distinctive characteristics, Dynamite Joe is a mediocre-to-poor western. It's essentially about a government agent who is tasked with protecting a gold shipment from bandits. His weapon of choice is, needless to say, explosives.
This one was helmed by jack-of-all-trades director Antonio Margheriti, who made films in many different genres. He does solid enough work here but the material is just a bit too tedious for its own good. The star actor is a guy with the spectacularly silly name of Rik Van Nutter. Seemingly he was the guy who played Felix in the early James Bond movies, although I would never have known if I hadn't read it here on IMDb. Overall, this is a film that certainly doesn't take itself very seriously but at the same time it isn't very good either.
