This still applies but i’ve recently bought the newish Dorado disc, it will give me an excuse to revisit the film.
Although Tarantino has this in his top twenty, i do not think it is deserving of the position. It is a good spaghetti western but definitely overrated.
I agree here, Tarantino’s word ain’t gospel.
I finally decided to order that edition. I have found a bargain at Amazon:
Spaghetti Western Two-Fer: Gatling Gun (1968) / Django Shoots First (1966) >>> About 14 Euros
unwatchble film >:(
1 out of 5
To be able to tell that a movie is unwatchable, you must - at least - have tried to watch it
If you gave up too soon, you can only tell that part of it was unwatchable
If you watched until the end - even against your will - it must have been watchable
Interesting. A little philosophy here… For me Gatling Gun was watchable until I fell asleep on it
You must have in mind that Sartana68 is the member with the most extreme taste here in the forum at the moment. I think many will take meanwhile his negative ratings as recommendations.
But he’s a nice guy, and I have no problems with his taste.
Count me as one of those. When Sartana1968 starts praising a film I like I immediately start questioning my own taste. ;D
But that’s OK. Life would be boring if we all agreed on everything.
I really don’t think Gatling Gun is the cream of the crop, but it is quite an enjoyable flick, better than most of the bunch
i buy this flick from ebay, i see 80 minutes of the film then i stoped watch it
it’s sooo boring and has nothing inside it no gunplay and very boring dialogs
i like a lot robert woods in black jack but not in this film sorry
did i say 1 out of 5 no! 0 out of 5
the only good thing i noticed some familiar faces from SW nothing else
I like this movie (mostly just for the hand cutting scene lol just kidding). The Dorado DVD is great and I like the directing. I wouldn’t put it in my top 20 though. Gave this a 4.

you must came all of you some day to greece to meet me… ;D ;D
and take a big bag i had many dvd’s which i don’t like to give you
That’s a word …
Rewatched the film on Dorado’s dvd. Didn’t like it much on the first time and the second time didn’t really change my opinion. I like the actions scenes in the end, especially the scene where Woods attacks the house with shotgun. Reminded me of some of the best action scenes by Corbucci. But it takes 80 minutes until we get there and I didn’t find the plot that interesting so I had kind of lost the interest aready. And the music… probably worst I’ve heard in sw.
Still, the ending is quite rewarding and I think that Gatling Gun is a film worth watching. My rating would be something like 4-5/10.
Agree with Sebastian and autephex…
I found this one superb. I watched and I was really delighted with this one, but when I saw so many negative comments I was a bit surprised. :o
I guess I’ll have to watch this one once again (it’s been top 20 stuff for me so far), maybe I’ll change my mind.
On the other hand I can see why so many people dislike this one.
Most of spaghetti western fans need action and shootouts to be entertained. There is not too many action in this one, but at least it’s well filmed little gem. 8)
this movie starts really kicking in last 20-30 minutes, you have great “bury him deep” scene, some good gatling rampage, a hero in a blood soaked shirt (you don’t see something like that in SWs too often), some shotgun action and throughout the whole movie great John Ireland who steals the show
Glad you liked it.
I found it very exciting as well. I’ve re-watched it recently. Not Top 20, but it misses it very, very narrowly.
I can see why Mr Tarantino has it in his Top 20.
