Is Red Sun considered a spaghetti western?

Only reason I ask is it seems a bit neglected on this site, but I’ve seen it mentioned on others.

Check the film’s thread:,413.0.html

And copy your question to this thread in case you haven’t find an answer there.

Thanks, I didn’t see that topic. It looks like there’s been a lengthy discussion on this point and the general consensus is that’s a Eurowestern with some spaghetti elements.

no it’s an american western and not spaghetti, also the sounds of the gun when firing it’s too american

Well, I don’t know much about the film, but judging by a quick look on IMDB the film is a French/Italian/Spanish co-production. So yeah, it’s not an American western.

Its not a spaghetti western but it is a eurowestern.

I never even thought to consider it as a SW but a great film - one of my favourite westerns, and the magnificent closing shot with the samurai sword suspended on the wire as the train pulls in deserves a special mention.

I’d say it was a Eurowestern, btw has anyone bought the recent UK Optimum Home Entertainment DVD release? Any details, reviews or screen shots?

I would also call this a Euro Western, but no Spaghetti.
