Lonely rider Speedy Gonzales (Spede Pasanen) arrives to small town of New York to revenge the murder of his brother. Who shot Moses Gonzales? Was it the dishonest sheriff (Leo Jokela), mysterious Bat Masterson (Ville-Veikko Salminen), ladies' man tsai-jai-jai-Manolito (Esko Salminen) or maybe bank robber Clyde (Pertti Melasniemi). Slowest shooter of Häme (Simo Salminen) it hardly could have been.

Notable western
11 February 2002 | by YeOldeUselessoFilmoBuffoSee all my reviews

This is one of the nicest movies where the genius of Finnish comedy, Spede Pasanen, appears.

The movie is very atypical for a Spede movie, because of the fact that it's a very quiet movie - much less speech than usual, more room for guns, explosions, fists and beat of hoofs. On the other hand, it's a very atypical Finnish movie, because a cold and dark country like this is not a very probable location for shooting a Western! Nevertheless, many Spede fans think Speedy Gonzales and Hirttämättömät are both movies that were, as though of afterwards, good ideas.

As a Western parody, it's a pretty funny one and even funnier than some "less serious" Westerns produced at our time and age. The movie pokes fun at many of the cliches of "Spaghetti Westerns". Yet, it's not the funniest of the Spede movies, but it still works wonderfully because the plot is more finished than in some of the earlier works - it might even be good enough for a *real* Western!

Overall, not a bad movie at all, well worth watching even today, and the jokes don't get old even after many watchings.

Now, if only they'd release it on DVD...
