Underrated and overlooked spaghetti western
20 July 2002 | by davelisalySee all my reviews

Found on U.S.video under the title "Shotgun", for some strange and unknown reason?! This film is very good, although it may move a bit slow at times, and all the actors perform well, this is one Spaghetti Western that should not be missed by any Spaghetti Western fan! The direction is also well done as is the music which reminds one of Ennio Morricone. I was lucky enough to find it at the local video store. The print on the video is A+. Maybe this is one title that should be put out on DVD?
