Watched the trailer of this today, it didn't look too bad at all, but you know how it is with trailers. Anybody know enough about this film to give a comparison to some of the better SW's?

I can't think of a sw to compare offhand but i'd say this is an enjoyable above average western.It has a straightforward revenge theme where the hero(looking very much like Nero as Django) recruits a gang of men one by one(Magnificent 7 style!) to track down a mad but excellently played(samurai?) villain who is responsible for the death of the hero's wife as well as pinning it on the hero who has spent years in jail improving his fast draw with the use of a hand-carved pistol.
There is a distinctly autumnal feel to this western with much of the action taking place in some woods.The hero is well played by Bret Halsey but William Berger also turns in a typically good double-crossing performance and Bud Spencer also excells in a much straighter role than normal.

Over at my Euro Western pages, 61% of people (14)have said that it is Recommended (i.e. 3/4). 

I quite enjoyed it - particularly the baddie.

Today We Kill...Tomorrow We Die (Today It''s Me, Tomorrow It''s You)(1968)

Today was sort of a Magnificent Seven story minus a couple of guys. The ending was enjoyable but I thought a little too much time was spent on the build-up and it dragged. Highlights included an appearance by Bud Spencer (from the Trinity movies) and a great over-the-top performance by Tatsuya Nakadai (from Kurosawa movies) as a particularly cool villain. The finale in the forest was a bit of an unusual location for a spag. and gave the film some added interest. I''d give this one 5.5 of 10.

Agree with the above. Takes a looooooong time to get going. I like the ex-sheriff with that strange shotgun like rifle.

Nakadai is playing a mexican bandit here. It's another of those MAG 7/THE PROFESSIONALS clones that were being done at the time. It's only average to me. Good cast though. Bret Halsey plays a very DJANGO-like character minus the coffin and big gun.

This is one of my favorite Spaghetti Westerns. The autumal locale is a breath of fresh air in my opinion. I especially enjoy the dirty dozen formula in this film. A gang of killers with different areas of specialty is always enjoyable. 5/5 for me.
