El Zorro Justicierohttp://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/E_continuavano_a_chiamarlo_figlio_di…
-I don’t really care for Zorro films but this one by Rafael Romero Marchent doesn’t really differ from usual spaghetti western. Fabio Testi plays Zorro, a masked hero but there isn’t any sword fighting or Z-markings and he just wears a hood over his face not the usual stupid looking Zorro mask. We see him doing some acrobatics, mountain climbing and horse riding tricks though.
Otherwise it’s pretty basic sw stuff. There’s a nice looking train robbery scene, bank robbery and lots of gunfighting.
There’s some familiar typecastings in the film, Piero Lulli as the bad guy’s right hand man and Luis Induni as the good sheriff. Simone Blondell plays the role of damsel in distress. Riccardo Garrone adds some comedic elements as a town drunk but unfortunately he has only one scene in the film.
My rating: 3/5
Btw, this has a release date in 1972. It didn’t really look like a 70’s sw. Maybe it was shot already some years before?
