Good and enjoyable Spaghetti/Paella/Paté Western co-produced by Italy/Spain/France
11 April 2013 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This is a good S.W. plenty of action , shootouts , thrills and fist-play . It's a thrilling western with breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist Giuliano Gemma against the heartless Peter Cross , his son Massimo Righi and his underlings as Nello Pazzafini . It deals with a cowboy named Brent Landers (Giuliano Gemma) is deceived by Gil Clawson (Nello Pazzafini) and after taking place a shotdown in which dies a man called Stan Clevenger (Germano Longo) . Tricked into buying stolen cattle , Brent on the run for a killing he didn't commit . Landers attempts to clear his name and he narrowly breaks out being lynched . Brent goes to New Mexico where he hopes encounter a person who can exculpate him . While on his way along the desert Las Mesas he finds a wounded woman (Ida Gally or Evelyn Stewart) who has been abducted , tortured , tied in front of sun , sets her free and then takes his vengeance . They arrive in a little town called Sage Crossing where rules a wealthy owner called Clayton Ranchester (Peter Cross or Pierre Cressoy) and his son (Massimo Rhigi) . Still wanted, he hunts down the actual cattle rustlers and he befriends the town doctor (Roberto Camardiel) and the sheriff (Jesus Puente) .

Agreeable Chorizo-Spaghetti Western co-produced by Spain, Italy and France and follows the American models more than Sergio Leone style . This Western is a superior outing because it displays thrills , emotion , shoot'em up , brawls , intrigue , riding pursuits and many other things . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some shots or stunts every few minutes . The picture is a tale of justice and revenge , as a gunfighter looks for a man in a border little town and seeks vendetta against the woman's torturers . The basic plot is typical spaghetti western fare , but what makes this movie stand out is its style . The starring called Brent is stunningly played by Giuliano Gemma . Giuliano is very fine , he ravages the screen , he jumps , bounds and leaps , hit and run . Gemma as a brave and two-fisted gunslinger is terrific , subsequently the would play similar role in other Spaghettis . Gemma , along with Anthony Steffen and Gianni Garco , results to be one of the greatest stars of the Spaghetti genre .Gemma in his beginning worked as stunt-man , practiced many sports in his life, boxing, gymnastics, such as is well proved at the movie . Then the director, Duccio Tessari, gave him the first role as protagonist in the film " The Titani" and the first spaghetti western films where he often worked under the name of Montgomery Wood , playing Western as ¨A pistol for Ringo¨, ¨The return of Ringo¨ and others as ¨Adios Gringo¨, ¨Arizona Colt¨, ¨The price of power¨ , ¨Day of anger¨ and later ¨California¨. However, his first big opportunity came with the important Italian director, Luchino Visconti in ¨El Gatopardo¨ this was followed by important roles in "Angelica" , ¨Tenebre¨ , ¨Young Lions¨ and ¨The master touch¨. Then he played his most significant roles in ¨Il Deserto Dei Tartari¨ and ¨Il Prefetto Di Ferro¨ .

In the movie appears usual support actors as Spanish : Roberto Camardiel , Frank Braña , Antonio Iranzo , Jesus Puente as Italian players as Pierre Cressoy , Massimo Righi Jeff Cameron as a hoodlum , Germano Longo and of course , Nello Pazzafini . It's a co-production Spanish-Italian and shot on location in Manzanares Del Real , La Pedriza and Colmenar Viejo (Madrid) , Spain . There are many fine technicians and nice assistant direction , excellent production design , and atmospheric cinematography by Francisco Sempere , he creates a magnificent scenario on the interior ranch and barren outdoors , dirty landscapes under a glimmer sun . The music original by Benedetto Ghiglia composes a nice Spaghetti soundtrack and well conducted and splendid leitmotif ; it's full of enjoyable sounds and emotive score , including enjoyable songs at the beginning and the end.

The flick was professionally directed by Giorgo Stegani or George Finley , though with no originality . This Italian writer / filmmaker so consistently mixed the good with the mediocre that it became quite impossible to know what to expect from him next . He wrote several Western and intriguing films . He's is an expert writer of Giallo and Western as ¨Blood of a silver dollar¨ and ¨ Beyond the law ¨ and occasionally Western director as ¨Adios Gringo¨ , ¨Beyond the law¨ , and ¨Gentleman Jo¨. Rating : 6 . Acceptable and passable Western that will appeal to Spahetti fans because being filled with action , thrills , intrigue and crossfire
