I guess it all depends on your definition of action, don't it?

It has the right action for its subgenre, and I don't remember the trailer showing shoot out after shootout.

most trailers dont. But word of mouth says otherwise.
Besides the trailer showed every action sequence in the entire film within the span of 3 minutes.
Sabata's trailer shows quite a bit of gadget action and is very tongue and cheek (just like the film).

Well remember its not a shootout film, and I think you have to refine your opinion and compare it to similar films in its sub genre, especially if your tastes are more shootout action oriented.

I like suspense westerns. I have no real preference. Hell I'm one of the few people here who thinks "The Beguiled" is amazing. But "Chato's Land" suspense scenes come off sloppy and boring. No tension is built. I just found myself waiting for Chato to make another appearence. Thats my take.

What sub genre can it be classified as ? suspense western? Have'nt seen to many of those...

Meaning what, word of mouth say it has good action?

Perhaps word of mouth is based on the action of the subgenre which for this type of film is the correct one.

Doesn't the tag line say:

Yes I'd say chase/manhunt suspense. The landscape and how Chato uses it to lure the "vigilates" into the trap is the other chatracter.

Here is an interesting comment from IMDb

It's a good euro western that has aged quite well. The U.S. edition is different from the European one : the rape scene was reshot with no nudity, the burning of Bronson's brother is far more violent and gory, some bloody close ups have been removed. The french DVD issued last year contains the "director's cut" and really is a better one. Same thing for another Michael Winner western from this period : "Lawman" in which the euro version shows more of Sheree North's breasts and much more blood. These are not really "director's cuts" per se, but alternative versions of the same film for different countries. Tarantino recently did that with "Kill Bill".

Yep, Chato's Land is one of my favorites, mainly because of Bronson.  It already is in my western collection.

Is Chato's Land Bronsons best performance in an American western?Other than this i've only seen him in the great Mag 7 and the mediocre Breakheart Pass.I've been considering getting Red Sun but there doesn't seem to be enough information about this to entice me-and it seems theres no widescreen dvd.

Chato's land just may be his best performance as a star, Villa Rides is great too but he's not the main star, Red Sun I also liked very much and I believe it wasn't shot in widescreen but full matte like Barquero, anyway that is what I've discovered about it

Oh yes i forgot about Villa Rides-i taped it off the telly recently(must watch this soon) Grin .I also forgot about Bronson being disappointing as the bad guy in Guns For San Sebastian.

Is this Charles Bronson film worth a look? It also stars Jack Palance. I'm thinking with these two stars, it can't be that bad.

Not in the same league as Leone, but I quite like to watch it occasionally. Plus you get to see some familiar locations again like Sweetwater.

I like it & own it,  its a "chase" Western but we already had a topic for this Tuc, your making extra work for Banjo, do a search first. Wink

My only complaint is its cut, the international release shows more violence.
