Mark Damon is wonderful in the lead
Didn’t impress me either but I re-watched it the other day and really enjoyed it. I get the feeling I’ll enjoy it even more on a third viewing as well.
Love it. Thanks mate
Watched Johnny Yuma over the weekend. A bit uneven film, sometimes comical and later on (very) brutal. Somehow this did not make the movie very coherent.
I liked Damon in his rol, as well as most characters that are staged. The usage of the Mexican sidekick somehow lost my attention and I still can not get his usage. I will have to rewatch and pay some more attention to him.
Guerrieri stated in his interview he was forced to implement the brutallity and that he was against it. I think without this brutallity it would have become a comedic wester, ahead of the trinity films and without the beans .
I am very positive about the movie, not my top 10 but in the top 25.
It’s a nice looking film with an excellent soundtrack and good direction but it’s just a bit too talky at times and lacking in action. This is my second viewing and I think that this is a watchable but still very average spaghetti western. I like Damon in the lead but I’ve got to say that Lawrence Dobkin is the coolest guy in the film.
