4 January 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A remake well starred by Nik Xhelilaj as Winnetou and Wotan Wilke as Karl May named afterwards Old Shatterhand replacing the classic roles starred by Pierre Brice and Lex Barker .Besides here appears other secondaries from the vintage series as Marie Versini and Gojko Mític. It stars Woman Wilke as Karl May , same name to novel's author , who goes USA , arriving in Ellis Island, as he works as a railway engineer. When the White men invade an Indian graveyard, Apaches led by Winnetou attack the invaders and take prisioner Karl. Later on, Winnetou forms a strong Comradeship and Friendship with the German railroad engineer . While, Shatterhand falls in love for Nacho Tschi :Lazua Larios , Winnetou sister , and Shaman of the tribe Apache. At the end happens a breathtaking confrontation on a railway bridge in some spectacular scenes that result to be the Highlights of the movie.

First entry of a recent trilogy based on the famous saga written by Karl May starred by the chief Apache Winnetou and the German adventurer Old Shatterhand, being well produced by Rat Pack and Rialto with its producer Wendlandt. Glimmer and exciting western that contains adventures, action , crossfire, and gorgeous Yugoslavian exteriors magnetically photographed in which takes place the first emotive meeteing between Winnetou and Shatterhand incarnated by new and attractive actors. As Nik SHelilaj bears remarkable resemblance to Pierre Brice, as physical as acting. However, Wotan Wilke does not look like Lex Barker or Stewart Granger. This agreeable saga benefits itself from marvelous scenarios , shootouts , and larger-than-life roles. The film displays colorful and rousing cinematography with wonderful outdoors . Being shot in similar Yugoslavia landscapes from Pierre Brice/Lex Barker series , paying a nice tribute to the vintage movies . As well as a catching musical score , including the classic Ballad: the Winnetou's melody by Martín Bottcher, composer of the saga of the sixties. The motion picture was well directed by Philipp Stolzl who has made this new reboot trilogy about Winnetou formed by three good and sympathetic flicks .He formerly directed successes as The Physician, Erased, Goethe and Nordwand.
