Well, in regards to my post above… What I should have said is that it seemed Fulci might have some talent to display. But now after seeing a few of his films I think a interesting shot here or there is about all he has to offer. Story and character sure arent any were to be found.
Yes, the film starts out really slow but that wouldnt be a problem in the least if during that time characters and plot were being developed. To bad thats not the case, what we have instead are souless entities wondering around a western setting for an hour or so spitting out worthless dialog(in a horrible dub on top of it).
Then Fulci tries to throw everything at you at once with a plot twist thats just as lame as it was in Texas, Adios only fulci handles it even worse than Baldi.(at least Baldi lead me to believe that I still have to see his other films). And a climax which is just shooting, shooting, and more shooting with no real purpose behind it other than to throw a buch of mindless action at the viewer. Non stop action for the sake of non stop action to me is just as dull as anything else. The fact that we are not invested in the characters or their cause makes it even worse.
I had high hopes for this one. Nero + a bad sss title. To bad both were wasted on a rather pointless film IMO. Its been a couple spags now since Ive been impressed by one(Keoma being the last…what a film). Hopefully Im do for one and Django The Bastard will fill that role.
