Though the title "Ringo: Face of Revenge" suggests otherwise, there actually isn't any kind of revenge in this particular spaghetti western. I'm used to this kind of bait-and-switch in the spaghetti western genre, so I didn't mind this. And there is some genuine merit to be found in the movie's 97 minutes. There is a low key but effective musical score, for one thing. And while the movie seems to have had a slightly lower budget than usual, director Mario Caiano manages to spend the limited funds well so the movie doesn't come across as cheap. Caiano also manages to generate some decent action sequences, and effectively film the various plot twists and turns so the viewer keeps wondering where the movie is headed to. But at the same time, Caiano puts some odd touches in. The movie is a little slow, and could have been tightened somewhat. There is also a frequent casual feeling to the story when things should have been nailed down more. The casualness to some of the violence is a little off-putting, and the portrayal of Ringo and his actions don't always make him come across as likable. When you weigh the good with the bad, this spaghetti western ends up being just okay. Fans of the genre will probably get some entertainment out of it, but if they never see it, they are not missing that much.
