An indoors spaghetti western movie in low budget with poor scenarios and little action
11 August 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This is a shoestring budget spaghetti western by experienced screen-writer and director Giorgio Cristallini . Average Spaghetti full of fury , thrills , emotion , and portentous duels . This so-so Western that owes a considerable debt to Leone deals with Sarah Baldwin (Daniela Giordano) who finds her family being killed by nasty cutthroats who are looking for some valuable documents . She escapes and being chased by a posse of bandits (Raf Baldassarre, among others) . Then , an ex-soldier and journalist called George (Peter Lee Lawrence) along with a Marshal named Thomas (Philippe Hersent) save her from the outlaws . Soon after , they go to an inn called ¨Paradero De Papa Martínez¨ , a lodging-house where there are various peculiar roles , such as the old station-master , Mr. Martínez , his wife Adeline Martinez (Valeria Fabrizi) , her Mexican lover (Daniele Vargas) , a beautiful Indian woman , Ana , (Antonella Murgia) , a dwarf (Salvatore Furnari) and highly suspicious guests . Later on , the events go wrong when several bandits arrive at the station . As a bunch of rogues hides at the station because they are arms trafficking with the Indians on the one hand and acquiring documents concerning the ownership of a goldmine on the other . At Papa Martinez' inn occur strange happenings and there arrive mysterious characters such as Quinn Paradine (Umberto Raho) , and George's old flame named Julia (Ida Galli as Evelyn Stewart) .

This is just an average Macaroni Western filled with intrigue , crossfire , go riding , gunrunning and Indian attacks , though mostly developing indoors scenarios . It is an Italian made western that came to the big screen when the top time of the genre was falling down . In fact , the late sixties and 'seventies' is not the best time to find out good spaghetti westerns . But this one is not so bad , it drags at times , balancing in ups and downs ; turning out to be entertaining enough . It's a simple but otherwise earnest little story of a group of rogues hides at a station , there meet a valiant young -Peter Lee Lawrence- and a veteran sheriff -Philippe Hersent- that find themselves in the middle of a fight between member of the violent bunch for a document concerning a gold mine . The movie contains typical particularities Spaghetti , as is full of fury , sadism , bloodbaths , and close-ups of grime-encrusted faces . Surprisingly, "Four Gunmen of the Holy Trinity" does not follow the typical paths of the European western wave around 1969 . It lacks both the sarcasm and the Eastwood type of antihero . Instead , this movie is almost entirely set in a lonely stagecoach station in a desert , thus this "indoors western" has much in common with a theatre play . Early deceased Peter Lee Lawrence gives a subdued performance but adequate to his character , a two-fisted but upright gun-shooter . The notorious Spaghetti/Paella actor , Peter Lee Lawrence is good in his usual brave role , here playing a tough young become into a terrible avenger when his friend is wrongly murdered . His role is well performed , he plays as a relentless gunslinger using his rifle with short cannons , a violent young who seeks justice , an usual plot in Spaghetti western . Blond German youth Peter Lee Lawrence, who made his uncredited debut in Sergio Leone "For A Few Dollars More" (1965), was the hero in many Spaghetti Westerns. His short cinematographic history can be enclosed in nine years of Italo-Spain co-productions such as "More Dollars for the MacGregors" , ¨Winchester justice¨,"Pistol for a Hundred Coffins", ¨The man who killed Billy the Kid¨ , ¨Fury of Johnny Kid¨ and several others . Furthermore , a largely secondary cast plenty with Italian secondaries , all of them ordinary in Pepperone western such as Raf Baldassarre , Daniele Vargas , Philippe Hersent , Umberto Raho , and the regular dwarf in various Westerns and Peplum called Salvatore Furnari . In addition , four wonderful Eurotrash actresses : Valeria Fabrizi , Daniela Giordano , Antonella Murgia and Evelyn Stewart or Ida Galli .

Incoherent and inappropriate musical score by Roberto Pregadio , including some jazzy melodies . And adding a catching song sung by Valeria Fabrizi , though dubbed . Worn-out and faded cinematography by Alessandro D'Eva , adding inadequate exteriors shot in unsuitable Italian landscapes . The motion picture was middlingly directed by Giorgio Cristallini , including a lot of flaws , gaps and failures . Giorgio wrote , directed and was Second Unit Director or Assistant Director of various films , especially Peplum ("Cleopatra's Legion" , "Hercules and the Captive Women" ¨Goliath and the Dragon¨) , Mafia movie ("Seagulls Fly Low") and Western ("You're Jinxed, Friend You've Met Sacramento" , "I Quattro Pistoleri Di Santa Trinità" or "Four Gunmen of the Holy Trinity" . Rating : 4.5/10 . Mediocre .
