This exciting Pasta Western is plenty of zooms , shootouts , thrills , twists and loads of violence and blood
10 September 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

It is an entertaining Maccaroni western with lots of action , gun-play and fun . So-so Spaghetti Western with a mysterious gunman confronting vicious cutthroats . There's a frontier feud on the border of Mexico , there takes place a massacre . Feared outlaw Hagen (Klaus Kinski) and his hoodlums as Ramírez (Benito Pacifico or Dennis Colt , usual master of arms) and Tamayo (Hunt Powers or Jack Betts who carries big mustache and long hair) have killed Nevada Kid's family . American Civil War is finished , a Confederate soldier named Mark Hamilton or Nevada Kid (Jeff Cameron) arrives in his burnt farm , and finds his family murdered , he is immediately persuaded by Sam (Ray Saunders) to chase Hagen and his underlings , but some nasty brothers hot on their tail . The tough and rare gunslinger Nevada Kid becomes an efficient Pistolero , acting as judge , jury , and executioner and swears vendetta . Gunslinger Nevada Kid being supported by the Afro-American (Ray Saunders) and he gets unexpected help by a cunning , grinning bounty hunter (Gordon Mitchell) against the malicious killers and the ending settle disputes by shooting . Meantime , they save a damsel in distress (Simonetta Blondell or Vitelli , Fidani's daughter) who has been kidnapped by Hagen's henchmen .

This Italian production is a moving S.W. movie starred by Jeff Cameron Hunt Powers and Klaus Kinski ; it takes on a strange gunslinger against treacherous gang : the Hagen band who are wanted dead or alive. The film deals with a mysterious stranger , become an avenger , who vows to take down dreaded outlaws . This Spaghetti movie gets the usual Western issues , such as greedy antiheroes , violent facing off , quick zooms , and exaggerated baddies . It is an acceptable , passable Western with several titles as ¨Per Una Bara Piena Di Dollari" , "Coffin Full of Dollars" , "Showdown for a Badman" that contains an interesting and violent plot about a young seeking vendetta . It packs thrills , shoot'em up , violence , and results to be quite entertaining , though drags at times , balancing in ups and downs . There is plenty of action in the movie , guaranteeing some pursuits , crossfire or stunts every few minutes . It's a thrilling western with breathtaking confrontation between the protagonist against the heartless enemies formed by a brutal gang of bandits led by Klaus Kinski and Hunt Powers. The main starring is Jeff Cameron as a gunfighter really seeking vengeance and the popular Klaus Kinski as Hagen / Slander who appears elegantly dressed and with a brilliant look , gaining a reputation for his ferocious talent and equally ferocious temper ; Kinski plays as a strange killer who occasionally joins in on the action with his deadly guns . Here he plays with lots of gesticulation and excessive gestures . As he is fine , as he ravages the screen with his peculiar face and using suddenly his hidden weapons . This Spaghetti is made during his Italian period when Klaus starred a lot of Westerns , later he collaborated with Werner Herzog with whom played several prestigious films . They later collaborated on five movies : Aguirre (1972), Woyzeck (1979), Nosferatu, (1979), Fitzcarraldo (1982) and Cobra Verde (1987). As Kinski starred numerous Spaghetti such as : Pray to Kill and Return Alive , Black Killer , If You Meet Sartana Pray for Your Death , Bullet King , Shangai Joe , Clint the solitary , The Ruthless Four , Nevada Kid , The return of Clint , and specially famous resulted to be his acting in ¨For a fistful of dollars more¨ . There is a very odd implementation of shots in the camera work during some particular scenes as well as a lot of twists and turns , as the film approaches its climax , as in the final and the customary conclusion . Atmospheric Eastmancolor cinematography by the famous Aristide Massaccesi or Joe D'Amato , though being necessary a good remastering and filmed in De Paolis/INCIR Studios , Italy Elios studios Rome , as usual , and El Lacio . Enjoyable and thrilling musical score by Coriolano Gori (as Lallo Gori) , including catching leitmotif and attractive song at the beginning by Mark Wolf.

The picture was lousily directed by Demofilo Fidani or Miles Deem , considered to be the "Ed Wood of Spaghetti Western" and husband of Mila Vitelli Valenza ,a professional costume designer and father of actress Simonetta Vitelli , both of whom worked in various films of Demofilo . Fidani directed all kind of genres in low budget and exploitation pictures . He eventually had more pseudonyms than any working director in the world , similarly to Bruno Mattei . He followed shooting these taboo-breaking films with excursions into porno film , adventure , as ¨Karzan, Jungle Lord" and specially , Spaghetti as ¨Django and Sartana's Showdown in the West" , ¨Giù la Testa¨, "Sartana, the Invincible Gunman" , ¨El Sartana... l'Ombre Ta Mort¨, among others .
