eeeehhhhh,

Well I got it, watched it tonight, and wasn't that impresssed wasted about $10 on another SW Essential recomendation that didn't pan out,  I recomend anybody curious to rent it on Netflix.

I just don't see what the hype is all about Leone is lightyears above this, its watchable I'll give it that but for me once will be enough, Silva is good and Morricone ok but I was expecting much much more.

Nothing against Leone mind you, but at least Lizzani didn't need another director to do his action scenes for him.

I haven't watched this in ages but certainly the last third of the movie where theres one brilliant scene after the other is as good an ending as almost any sw i can think of. O0

Nothing really stood out as exceptional IMO, there are many AW's that are much better in retrospect.

That review of mine was from a year ago or more but if you don't want the movie CJ, I'll take it off your hands so you won't have to feel you've "wasted" $10 dollars. BTW, what was the other purchase you spoke of? Was it HELLBENDERS?

Only if you get your rocks off on the campyness aspect of Spaghetti Westerns, which I don't. ;)
I actually started to fall asleep watching this, how many big shootouts end the majority of your average SW, they are all starting to look redundant to me.


I'll sell it to you AC

No Hellbenders I liked, I bought the SE Edition of "Seven Beauties" probably with probably the second best (After Tuco) picaresque charater in Italian cinema.

I have reason to believe that the region 1 dvd (and all the other releases) of THRR are cut.

The amazon website says this movie is 95 minutes long. My two copies run just under the 90 minute mark.
Of course this could be a mistake made by Amazon.


However, it wouldn't surprise me if it is indeed cut since their are some awkward jump cuts present, most obviously during the "tatoo cutting" scene.

I picked  this film  up at Worst Buy today and watched it for the first time.
What a disappointment, i could hardly wait for this snoozer (IMO) to end.
I would call this a SW-light. It hardly seemed Italian to me.
With all the praise on this thread...I'm afraid I'm with Cigar Joe on this one.
MGM put out a beautiful print though.

I didn't think much of it the first viewing either.
Thought it was too tame. Check it out again sometime.

you're complaining about 5 minutes??... maybe dialog?  i doubt they would cut five minutes from an action scene, what would be the point?  i wouldn't let it bother me too much...
