Arizona Colts review:-

UNA LUNGA FILA DI CROCI- NO ROOM TO DIE (1969)

Anthony Steffen, William Berger

Illegal Immigrants are being smuggled across the border for cheap labor and soon the smugglers have prices on their heads. Enter Brandon (Steffen) and
Murdock (berger) who are bounty hunters after the money. The usual double crosses ensue leading to a GBU style three way at the finale. Steffen is better than usual here but Berger steals his thunder as the "preacher" who uses a unique multi barreled shot gun. The action scenes are almost nonstop.

Surprisingly well directed with some style by hack Sergio Garrone. This is the best film I've seen of his. Later crime film specialist Stelvio Massi was the
cinematographer along with future sleaze-horror-porn maestro Joe D'Amato.

Euro horror fans will be surprised to see among the cast Mariangela Giordano who plays the girlfriend of one of the doomed heroes. She also did some crime films and italian sex movies but is probably most famous in the west for her extreme horror outings LE NOTTE DEL TERRORE (BURIAL GROUND), PATRICK VIVE ANCORA (PATRICK STILL LIVES) and GIALLO A VENEZIA (GIALLO IN VENICE).

Also in the cast is Dakkar, the Peruvian actor who appeared in Fulci's classic ZOMBIE and Marino Girolami's (Castellari's dad) ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST aka DR.
BUTCHER M.D. aka QUEEN OF THE CANNIBALS aka ISLAND OF THE LAST CANNIBALS.

NO ROOOM TO DIE is a surprisingly effective little actioner that has its fair share of faults but the film moves by quickly for 97 minutes and its misteps
are barely noticeable. If you're a Steffen fan, you'll enjoy this.

This is a good Steffen (which is a rare find).

Leave your brain at the door because this is just mindless fun and full of plot holes.

The best of the Garrone vehicles.


BANJO: I believe your very good friend JamesK has a review of this floating around. Grin

Don't you remember him getting the huff and removing his original thread when we had the gall to have our own opinions about this movie? Grin
