Excellent Corbucci film. Probably his best. He displays a much more restrained hand here than usual not going overboard with action and violence when he has ample opportunity to do so. Not sure if this was Corbucci's decision or the producer Albert Band. Several good twists along the way one you may see coming but still good though, just don't expect another DJANGO style actioner.

Darn it, I just found that my American DVD is pan and scan. I gotta get the Japanese DVD.

To understand where most of you are coming from... What would be the two Corbucci's that you rate above & below this one?

Right, you got it in that box set that has 9 spaghettis for ten dollars right? As far as I know, they're ALL pan-and-scan on that set. My dad bought it the other day, I'll be able to watch some of those spags when he gets back from DC.

@ Poggle: I've only seen 5 Corbucci's (going to be six as soon as I receive my copy of The Specialist [ahem FIRECRACKER]) and I would rank them like this:

1. The Great Silence
2. The Hellbenders
3. The Mercenary
4. Django
5. Companeros (don't let the fact that it's ranked last mislead you, it's a great movie)

The copy of the film I got from eBay is the same one you get in this RIDICULOUSLY overpriced box set.

Come on, the set is almost $30 cheaper than what the regular price is for 3 Jap SW (and lots of other) DVDs bought separately so I wouldn't call it overpriced! Wink Grin


Then again sure it could be considered overpriced compared to non-japanese releases (but there even isn't any other release of Sugar Colt and the only other Hellbenders disc available is crap) or ebay copies, but the same way you could say even $5 for a disc is too much when it's also possible to have these for totally free without even trading with anyone. Wink

Well, not all are pan and scan. I can't tell how many yet but the first movie is letter boxed. But I found one of them is in B &W. B & W spaghetti? I have never seen that.

A personal favourite of mine!  I love the Hellbenders.  I scribed a review over at my Eurowestern page sometime back, as follows :

Embarrassed

Well I'm truly sorry if that offended you as I didn't mean it to. It's just the way I have talked about the Japanese DVDs or some other stuff probably for years... can't really remember... but I'm sure you can find it from multiple posts of mine in here so don't go looking. Wink

Didn't even realize it could be thought to be a racial slur.

Well, I guess you were simply shortening the word Japanese and meant no harm. I don't take it seriously then. 

I was born and raised in Japan. I became a naturalized US citizen several years ago.

Yes, that's a nice screen shot. Funny thing, I'd seen it SO many times before i saw the movie, but until I saw it I didn't realize there was a third man in that shot.
