Spaghetti and Chorizo Western packed with action , crossfire , thrills and violence
20 May 2012 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spaghetti and Tortilla Western , co-produced between Spain and Italy and starred by two ordinary Spaghetti actors as the Italian Anthony Steffen and American Frank Wolff and dealing with a confrontation between cattlemen and homesteaders. This is not an actual Django outing , it's a Spaghetti with Chorizo Western crammed with action , shootouts and lots of violence . The film follows the American Western models but also in Spaghetti style . An Italian-Spanish co-production with outdoor sequences filmed in Colmenar Viejo , La Pedriza and Manzanares Del Real , Madrid . It's a medium budget film with usual actors , good technicians, passable production values and acceptable results . 1877 year , Reagan (Anthony Steffen) is a bounty hunter hired by the National Mining Company to recover $ 100,000 stolen by the gang of Jim Norton . Norton and his band are wanted ¨Dead or Alive¨ . After killing three of them , his investigations lead him to Mile City , a cattle town in Montana, land primarily for grazing , there lives Jim's twin brother, the peaceful Trevor (Frank Wolff who a few years later committed suicide) with a niece (Gloria Osuna) , and in which, after posing as a sheriff , he is in the midst of the war between the settlers with their cattle fences and cattlemen led by a nasty baron land (Alfonso Rojas who played thirty five Spaghetti) who advocate for open range needed to feed their cows . Gunmen were hired for a time to keep submitted the settle men and their barbed wire . Meantime the rowdy, free-spending cowboys attracted saloon keepers, gamblers , brothels and all types of frontier riff-raff , the town became notorious for its lawlessness but the new but impostor sheriff puts peace and order .

It appears as director the Spanish/Argentinean Leon Klimovsky , but actually, for the most part of its filming by the disagreements arising with Klimovsky was realized by Enzo G. Castellari, which this film was his directorial debut in a sub-genre that became one of its greatest representatives . In fact if you compare the beginning of "7 Winchester for a massacre" which would direct the next year and the end this one seem to be similar direction . It's full of action , exaggerated characters, shootouts and loads of violence . ¨Alambradas de Violencia¨ or ¨Pochi Dollari per Django¨ is an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist a bounty hunter gunfighter , Anthony Steffen , and a band's leader , Alfonso Rojas , and his hoodlums as Ennio Girolami . Anthony Steffen is fine , he ravages the screen, kills , shoots , hits and runs . There is plenty of thrills and action in the movie , guaranteeing some shoot'em up or stunts every few minutes . The film blends violence , high body-count and it's fast moving and quite entertaining . Nice score by Carlo Savina , including an enjoyable leitmotif and catching song . There is a very odd implementation of shots in the camera work during some particular scenes as the film approaches its climax , as in the ending gunfights and the customary showdown conclusion .

This Western all'Italiana was produced by Marino Girolami , father of Enzo G. Castellari and Ennio Girolami, being middlingly directed by Leon Klimovsky . Leon was a craftsman who directed all kind of genres , as Terror for Paul Naschy (Marshall of hell, Rebellion of dead one , Orgy of vampires , Werewolf shadow, Dr Jekill vs. the werewolf) , Warlike (June 44 attack force Normandy , A bullet for Rommel , Bridge over Elba) and Western (Badland drifter , Reverend Colt , Torrejon city , Death knows no time , Two thousand dollars for Coyote , A dollar for Sartana) . Rating: 5 ; regular but entertaining .
