Two convicts escape with plans to kill a sheriff, hiring a gunman along the way to help out.
Watched this film last night with high hopes… I thought the cover was really cool and all the descriptions of the film sounded promising. The first half of the film consists of lots of fighting, basically starting from the first scene… about 17 minutes in and several fight scenes later, it finally seems a gun is about to be drawn when the gunman stops to say, “I’ve got an idea” … “Let’s put our pistols on the counter and fight” … at this point I’m already about fed up with the movie, as in addition to no real content yet, there’s also been nothing visually appealing.
The entire first half hour of the film could of been shortened to 10 minutes, and then we could of gotten to the only cool part of the film- the bloody violence. The first time someone is shot in the film, it almost makes up for all the nonsense before it- its the kind of scene I had imagined the Fulci westerns to be filled with (and was let down when they weren’t). Unfortunately, this was the only aspect I liked about the film and there’s no more of these scenes until the end, at which point its executed poorly and overdone to the point of inducing boredom.
The main gunman character spends the movie trying to look cool and say cool things by being a bad man. Unfortunately, it only seems forced and it has the effect of the annoying jackass that’s the opposite of cool.
As mentioned by some folks here already, there’s a fair share of nudity- more than any spaghetti I’ve seen, but this doesn’t do much to improve my experience with Guns and Guts- by this time I’m just watching the clock and thinking about what I’m going to put in next.
Enjoyed the Fidani I watched the other night over this western by leaps and bounds.
