Title: All Out(Tutto Per Tutto)(1968)
Post by: Banjo on August 19, 2007, 04:55:52 PM
Directed by Umberto Lenzi.

Johnny Sweet(Mark Damon) and Owl(John Ireland) join forces with two Mexicans Paco(Eduardo Fajardo) and Gomez to find a cache of gold.They manage to track down a mysterious Indian known as Copperface who had snatched and hidden the stolen gold from bandit leader Caranza(Fernando Sancho) in retaliation for Caranza stealing his devious wife Maria.But once this very uneasy alliance gets the gold the story turns into a series of double crosses as each man tries to seize all the gold for himself and in the tradition of GBU Gomez even says to Paco at one point "for the men in this world there are two kinds,those that look at the gold and those that take it!".

This is a mildly entertaining sw with plenty of humour alongside a healthy serving of action and gun duels though would have benefited from the pace being upped a bit in various places.Its an excellent cast,Damon and Ireland are great together and has a fine heavily Morricone influenced musical score.

My rating 7 out of 10. :)

Would you consider it better than Lenzi's, other spaghetti, A PISTOL FOR 100 COFFINS?

No i'm sure A PISTOL FOR 100 COFFINS left a bigger impression on the one viewing. :)

I had forgotten to review this. But I agree By and large with Banjo's assessment, though I can't remember having been so enthusiastic about the score.
