Better than expected Paella Western with interesting script about revenge , robbing and a sentimental plot
12 August 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This is a semi-¨Zapata¨ Western plenty of Gunplay and revenge along with a fraternal story . Spaghetti and Chorizo Western , co-produced between Spain and Italy and starred by two ordinary Spaghetti actors as the Italian Guglielmo Spoletini as William Bogart and the Spanish Eduardo Fajardo dealing with a real and violent confrontation . This is not an ordinary oater outing , it's a Spaghetti with Paella Western crammed with action , shootouts , lots of violence and a thought-provoking as well as sensitive story . 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 , and , Almeria , of course . Concerning Martin Rojas (Guglielmo Spoletini as William Bogart) is a poor Mexican peasant whose home is destroyed by nasty American homesteaders ; after that , he and his unhappy partners (Fernando Sánchez Pollack) are forced to abandon their lands and flee to Mexico after they kill some cutthroats . Rojas and his bunch of Mexican people become bandits and helped by Trevor organize a big bank holdup run by a banker (Miguel Del Castillo) . Rojas , now nicknamed ¨El Lobo (Wolf) De Sierrablanca¨ forms a band of outlaws which raids the border , trying to gain back some of what they have lost , assaulting banks and robbing . But Rojas's spouse (Pilar Cansino) dies in childbirth . Soon after , Rojas is pursued by a sheriff (Sydney Chaplin) and a posse who goes into Mexican territory , being captured and condemned for 20 years in prison . Meanwhile , the sheriff and his wife (Agnes Spaak , top-billed in spite of a brief acting) adopt the kid . Ten years later , Rojas embarks on his vendetta and getaways from jail to see his little boy . And during his quest he carries the revenge in his heart after seeing his unknown son . An old colleague of his heists called Trevor (Eduardo Fajardo) is after a fortune in gold that Rojas had hidden . Rojas finds himself a danger when his son is kidnapped by Trevor . He gets stuck his son and both of whom escape and lost in the sunny desert . Rojas is looking for vengeance of his former partner who doublé-crossed him .

It's full of action , exaggerated characters , shootouts , loads of violence , but also displays an exciting and nicely developed screenplay , full of thrilling as well as interesting and sentimental events . It's a medium budget film with usual actors , good technicians, passable production values and acceptable results . A better than average Western regarding a revenge story , with plenty of violence ,shoot'em up , thrills and noisy action . Here the veteran director Klimovsky is inspired , though the ending is pretty predictable . The film relies heavily about the continuous relationship between the tired , unfortunate Mexican bandit and the little boy . "Death Knows No Time" or "Tierra Brava" or ¨Pagó Cara su Muerte¨ is an exciting western with breathtaking showdown between the protagonist , an unlucky countryman become a gunslinger who is forced to make a fundamental choice about his life , against his relentless enemies . William Bogart is fine , he ravages the screen, kills , shoots , hits and runs . Guglielmo Spoletini gives a surprising good acting . 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 by fine cameraman Emilio Foriscot during some particular scenes as the film approaches its climax , as in the ending gunfights and the customary showdown conclusion .

The motion picture is produced by Eduardo Manzanos Brochero who started producing ¨Il Coyote¨ and ¨The Jiusticia De Coyote¨ by Joaquin Romero Marchent with Abel Salazar and Gloria Marin . After that , he produced with his company Copercines ¨Vengeance of Zorro¨ and ¨L'Ombra di Zorro¨ (1962) by Joaquin Marchent with Frank Latimore . Eduardo Manzanos built a Western town in Hoyo De Manzanares (Madrid) with sets by Cubero and Jose Luis Galicia , today sadly disappeared , called ¨Golden City¨ where filmed several Western as Welcome Padre Murray , Brandy , various Zorros and this one . He produced various films for Marchent brothers as Joaquin Romero Marchent : ¨Cabalgando Hacia Muerte¨ , ¨Three good men¨; and Rafael Marchent : ¨Quien Grita vengeance¨, ¨Two crosses in Danger Pass¨ ; and for Italian directors as ¨Sabor Odio¨ by Umberto Lenzi¨and ¨Winchester 1 between 1000¨ by Primo Zeglio .

This ¨Tortilla¨ or ¨Paella¨or ¨Gazpacho¨ Western being well 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¨ and "A Few Dollars for Django" which 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 . Rating: 7 . Well worth watching .
