Ordinary Spaghetti Western with lots of shots , thrills , action , including a spectacular final attack on a train
10 September 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This thrilling film packs noisy action , shoot'em up , round-up , high body-count and it's fast moving , being quite entertaining and made in American style as well as Spaghetti , approaching increasingly Leone Italian manners , but keeping some details that make it special in this particular genre . It deals with a solitary drifter called Jeff Benson (Carl Möhner) helps some unfortunate people who have been gunned down by El Diablo's murderous bandit band . Then Jeff saves Jerry and joins to him . Both of them arrive in Canyon City , a dangerous city run by Black (Ivano Staccioli) , the sheriff'son and whose sister (gorgeous Alessandra Panaro) falls in love for Jeff . But Bandit leader El Diablo (Jose Torres) who controls the country with his gang plans to achieve gold destined for Mexico , though he is not the only one .

This obscure Spaghetti results to be an exciting Maccaroni western that contains a story full of violence , so-so dramatic pace and slick direction . It follows the Sergio Leone wake , including close-ups , shootouts , choreographic duels and that's why being proceeded in Italian style . It's a thrilling western with spectacular scenes and breathtaking confrontation among protagonist Carl Mohner and heartless enemies as Jack Taylor and Ivano Staccioli . It's a middle-budget film with usual actors , technicians, production values and pleasing results . Charismatic interpretation from Paella/Spaghetti's customary actors . The Austrian actor Carl Mohner is average in his usual tough role , here as Jeff Benson , an undercover federal agent posing as a drifter and desperately wanting justice , but a ruthless Mexican and a traitor are on his trail . Carl Mohner was as Austrian character actor who appeared in British and continental productions from 1949 . He was also a noted abstract painter, whose works have been exhibited internationally . Mohner starred films in all kinds of genres , especially thriller , action and wartime such as : ¨A woman at her window¨, ¨Wanted babysitter¨ , ¨Cave of the living dead¨ , ¨It takes a thief¨, ¨Sink the Bismark¨, and ¨The last bridge¨ . His greatest hit was ¨Rififi¨ . There are also some familiar faces in the support cast , most of them under-covered by American pseudonyms , such as Ivano Staccioli , Antonio Garisa , Mila Stanic and José Torres who steals the show as nasty Mexican bandit called El Diablo . This role as a cruel Mexican outlaw to be continued a few years later , in the classic Spaghetti ¨The specialist¨ by Sergio Corbucci with Mario Adorf as Diablo .

Colorful and evocative cinematography by Marcello Masciocchi , though being necessary a perfect remastering . And inappropriate and inadequate musical score . The motion picture was regularly directed by Gianfranco Baldanello . He was assistant director and subsequently directed some films . Gianfranco made several Spaghettis , such as ¨Uccidete Johnny Ringo¨ , ¨This man cant die¨ , ¨Son of Zorro¨ , ¨The Cry of the Wolf¨, ¨Black Jack¨ and ¨Blood River¨ . And ¨30 Winchesters for El Diablo" - International title- or "Gold Train" rating : 4.30/10
