-I’ve had heard bad things about this film so I was pleasantly surprised as this is quite entertaining film. Action scenes are nicely done and the landscapes and the abandoned ghost towns look good. Cast is excellent as I couldn’t imagine any better actors playing Tex and Kit Carson as Giuliano Gemma and William Berger. Especially Berger is excellent here. Aldo Sambrell makes a good villain too. There’s some strange mixture of adventure- and horror film stuff but otherwise it is standard western. It actually has some classic Hollywood western feel because there’s so much indians in it which is rare for a spaghetti western.
Entertaining film with few strange twists. I also recommend this one to those who like to watch weterns with their kids as there’s no too much violence and no nudity or such things. Kids will probably enjoy the horror elements -which actually aren’t a bit scary.
Tex Willer has been popular italian comic book series for a long time already (1948-) and it makes me wonder why didn’t italians try to make Tex films in the 60’s and 70’s when there was the biggest western boom. Maybe Tex was too clean and traditional western hero for the violent films of that time.
The version I saw was a copy of a tv-broadcast which was unfortunately missing the title sequence.
