Hope it’s ok to post this here!
I had seen this film about 10 years ago and didn’t really like it. However last night I devided to give it another go now that I have a few spaghettis under my belt.
Enjoyed it far more this time. However I felt the more serious first half dragged slightly. Hilton was great as “The Stranger” and I enjoyed the twisty turny plot and the continual conning between all the parties. Music was great for the most part (bar the jarring fight scene tune) and I enjoyed the humorous bits for the most part. I felt that Castellari’s direction was a bit hum-drum though (workmanlike might be a fairer term to be honest) but it certainly did the job.
Absolutely loved the three-way gunfight at the end and the finale, did not see that coming at all.
Coolest part for me - has to be the terrific opening sequence 8)
Good wee flick - 7/10 (so 4 stars)
