Title: El Tunco Maclovio (1970)
Post by: titoli on March 04, 2009, 09:43:22 AM

It seems this is a cult movie in Mexico. Maclovio is a gunman who, after some adventures, catches with his shady past. He cut off his left-hand after having killed by mistake his best friend. But for 2\3 of the movie i thought it was a gimmick, as he kills people without apparently using his right hand.  It has a very good starting scene and a pair of others but it is slow-moving and with strong melodramatic tinges. Still it is not completely uninteresting, as the (partially: they stole some bits from The Blob) OST.SoI give it a 5\10
