Acceptable Paella/Spaghetti Western about a band of Bushwackers led by Bill Anderson who commit robberies and killings
21 December 2013 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Spanish/Italian co-production about some ex-Confederate soldiers form a bloody band led by Bill Anderson (Armando Calvo) and his bandits (familiar faces from Chorizo Western as Luis Barboo, Jose Jaspe , Frank Braña , Alfonso De La Vega) , they have frightened the region of Springfield with continuous robberies . They are a little-known band of Civil War fighters known as Bushwhackers . They skirmish then spend long hours hiding . Therefore the authorities (Angel Menendez , Jesus Puente, Miguel Del Castillo) and Sheriff (Antonio Pica) decide to seek help from the Pinkerton detective agency . Besides, on the little town appears Ringo (usual Spaghetti hero Peter Martell), an ex-captain in the army of the north , who also goes behind the band . But Ringo receives unexpected help from rogue Dan Samuelson (habitual nasty , though here playing an agreeable character , Piero Lulli) to achieve their goal , which is simply to try to stop the band before they are caught and hanged by the law, as Allan wants to achieve especially apprehend Kidd (Paolo Hertz), the youngest member of the outlaws , so both join forces, the trouble is that maybe he is found that can end badly . Exciting film based on historical events set during post American Civil War (1861-1865) in which the Bushwhackers use guerrilla warfare to destroy Yankee targets and led by men set on revenge, they made a violent raid into Kansas , taking place the famous Lawrence Massacre , carried out by Bill Anderson and Quantrill .

This meaty Western contains an interesting but twisted plot , thrills , action , double-crosses , violence , shoot'em up and results to be quite entertaining . But overall Ringo the Lone Rider" or "Two Brothers, One Death" is entertaining to watch , with some good moments, and against the backdrop of aftermath American Civil War that gives more firmness to the story . The movie deals with historical events and characters such as the Bushwhackers who are irregulars loyal to the South led by Bill Anderson and also appears the notorious Pinkerton Agency . It is also remarkable violence executed by band Bill , who doesn't care to kill some poor and peaceful Mormons to achieve their goals . The picture efficiently describes the atmosphere of violence in which was set the post Civil War dealing with fights between Bushwhackers versus Jayhawkers . It's a moving western with breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist , Peter Martell and Piero Lulli against Anderson band formed by customary Spanish secondaries such as Armando Calvo , Jose Jaspe , Alfonso De La Vega and Frank Braña . Nice production design creating an evocative scenario with luminous outdoors , mountains , rocky grounds under a shinning sun and fine sets by Cubero and Galicia from Colmenar Viejo , Madrid, La Pedriza , and Hoyo de Manzanares's Western-film town . Atmospheric and thrilling musical score in Spaghetti style by Manuel Parada , including a catching leitmotif .

The motion picture was well written and produced by ordinary Eduardo Manzanos Brochero ; being professionally directed and in his own personal style by Rafael Romero Marchent . Rafael Romero Marchent was born on May 3, 1926 in Madrid, Spain. He is a director and actor, known for Garringo, Un Dolar de Recompensa , or Manos Torpes . Rafael Romero Marchent was brother of Joaquin Luis Romero , who was the first to shoot Westerns in Spain . At first, Rafael Romero began in films as an actor, but when his career began to wane, he preferred to spend time behind the camera . Rafael is an expert writer and director of Spaghetti Western as proved in ¨Two crosses on Danger Pass¨, Cry for revenge¨, ¨Two guns for two twins¨ and ¨Sartana Kills Them All¨ or ¨Un par Asesinos¨. While his brother Joaquin Marchent is deemed the Paella Western's best director , his first film was ¨El Coyote¨ and the sequel titled ¨Revenge of Coyote¨ shot in Mexico ; after that , he filmed ¨The shadow of Zorro¨ and ¨Revenge of Zorro¨, he went go directing Western as ¨ Riding to death ¨ , ¨Adventures in the West¨ , ¨Three good men¨, ¨Sabor Venganza ¨ and the most popular and violent ¨Condenados a Vivir¨ . Plus , he wrote for his brother Rafael Romero Marchent the followings Western : ¨Manos Torpes¨, ¨Ocaso Un Pistolero¨ , ¨Garringo¨ , ¨Dos Cruces en Danger Pass¨ and ¨Sartana Kills Them All¨. Rating : Passable and decent S.W. , though contains some flaws and gaps ; however , it results to be entertaining .
