[quote=“Reverend Danite, post:4, topic:285”]Me too. It’s had the piss taken out of it for Steffen hamming it up as a Shakespearean actor (Phil ;)) - but I’ve just rewatched it and found it all highly enjoyable … no silly health and safety rules then, so lots of dynamite and barrels of gunpowder left recklessly lieing around willy-nilly! It’s also got a woman’s ‘cold dead starin’ eyes’, some good (and some tongue-in-cheek) set pieces in the shoot-outs, a drunken ol’ scrote, good rousing music, a “that’s for Rita!” and at one point Steffen in a dress :P! It doesn’t take itself too seriously but it aint no comedy either. The Shakespeare stuff was great and gave a good excuse for comedic set pieces … in fact I wish there’d been more made of this with Steffen quoting MacBeth during the ritualised shootings. A bit of “Out damn spot - out I say” or “Fortune on his damned quarrel smiling - showed like a rebel’s whore!” and particularly for when Steffen delivers the dynamite in a pram … surely a “Look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it”. Not that any of this would make a lot of sense, but hey - this is spaghetti-land, so maybe a remake for this one Phil?
A highly entertaining (heading towards)4 outa 5 from this hombre, and as Shakespear himself might add, “fair is foul and foul is fair”! ;D[/quote]
That makes me want to watch it again, it was fun the first time I saw it but I didn’t really know Steffen then.
