Oh, Good Lord, What A Mess
10 May 2004 | by UinatSee all my reviews

Well, I'm a big fan of the original comic book, so my judgment here may be too harsh. A short introduction-Tex Willer is a US Ranger who travels around with old, grumpy Kit Carson. They ride around the old West surviving many adventures along the way. This comic book is some liter version of French comic book named `Blueberry'. Anyway, back to the movie. The movie is surprisingly lousy. I mean will someone tell me how could the country that gave us Spaghetti Westerns make such a lousy western based on their own creation?! Giuliano Gemma was a good choice as Tex, and William Berger is excellent as grumpy Kit. They did their parts very good. Unfortunately among all of Tex adventures somebody had to make one on his/her own. The strangest thing is that movie, although full of plot holes and bad support actors, works on some comic book level. My opinion is that they tried to literally copy-paste drawings to film. It showed once more that if you really want to transfer something from one kind of art to film needs more than pure wish and beautiful sunsets. Advice-avoid at all cost unless a Tex Willer die-hard fan.
