Saw this one for the first time today and was very disappointed. A quite anonymous and uninspired intro leads to the hostage situation, and after that nothing really happens.
The film has a surprisingly light-hearted and comical tone overall - the ranchers don´t seem to be bothered that much by the situation, the ranch lord courts the bandit lady and all of a sudden there´s supposed to be a brutal scene where they kill a couple of mexicans, or an attempted rape. On the english track F Sancho sounds like a frog from hell (alright, that´s not necessarily a bad thing) a jaunty Gemma talks a lot and “plays pool” at the end when he kills the noisy, mexican leader.
No, this one failed to please me. Some SWs (or films in general) that give a shattered impression survive thanks to some other qualities (Texas Adios is one example that springs to mind), a certain charm or style, but a Pistol for Ringo just drags, in my opinion. It´s bland.
