[quote=“Romaine Fielding, post:46, topic:997”]Haha, I think it fails as anything BUT an action film but, as an action film (mindless but constant activity), it does ok.
Boy, a lot of antipathy for this film out there in fandom. It’s not like it’s Boot Hill or anything…
Heehee, just kidding amigo. ;)[/quote]I thin the action is mostly too thrown in. I did find one place where it wasn’t. At the bridge in the beginning. Castellari directs the action with no intensity. Just a bunch of fools hopping around. If Corbucci directed it, he would have music flaring and Franco Nero going fuckin’ crazy. Wipin’ out every fool he sees. This is just one reason why I loveNero. He is GREAT in action sequences. He really goes all out. Grabbing people, pucnhing em’, grabbing huge machine guns and mowing down those guys. etc.
And yes, I know Nero was not in this one.
