Pretty much agree with all above. I watched the disc from the Halleluja box (previously I hadn’t even realized it was there, as I didn’t even know of the tenuous link) - but was pleased with the quality of the print.
The beginning showed a dark promise - the end shootout was far too comedic. Inbetween, it fluctuated between the two camps. And yes indeed, the barman was very camp - but his inclusion didn’t annoy me at all, I actually looked forward to seeing this lighter comedic part, and it looked like he enjoyed playing it.
Dollar, the bounty hunter/ranger was as over the top as he should’ve been, and looked great in leathers, tooth necklace and earring, 8) (and also looked like he could ‘come out’ - in a Judas Priest-y sort of way) at any time as well. It didn’t need him to go all ‘comedy’ later on for certain. Did Loredo Robledo survive this one Phil? I think he may have - (*much I’ve already forgotten from last night - which says something maybe?)
It was a shame Helga Line (Maybelle) was wearing a nice modern brassiere - if only for the sake of historical accuracy ::).
Overall - it was an enjoyable time spent on a mediocre film that was a spaghetti-by-numbers storyline, with a few interesting twists added.
[* Forgotten, but not from a surfeit of cider, as may sometimes be the case as his reverence is abstaining from the amber fluid at the moment - well, at least until the wretched gastric flu departs. Anyway, I don’t think this film would have got more for an appley-infusion anyway … so …
3 stars, (rounded up from half marks for Dollar’s earring and Maria Zandrea (Mary Zan)/Leonor’s suede outfit (her only film btw?). ]
