Tells a history of a bunch against a ‘indio’ renegade… An american western, till I know it, copies a little from the spaghetti style. Once I saw an uploaded cover here in the Forum for this flick.
How is the original aspect ratio ?
Finally put the tape in the vcr and watched it. It’s bad, but not excruciatingly bad. Acting is sub par, music is irritating at times, plot is flimsy and cliched and the effects are laughably bad. It is however pretty bloody and violent at times. And it ends in, yes, a great gundown in which 60 people get massacred with pistols, a gatling gun and dynamite. Best thing by far however is the artwork on the vhs sleeve (vcl video).
The director and actor did a better movie, but I’ll have to look for the title on Internet
That movie is not great, it’s a combination of David Hamilton-like erotica and Peckinpah-like violence, but at least it’s watchable
I remember watching this ‘Great Gundown’ on VHS : it looked awful and an (again) awful lot of frames were missing, since it was very jumpy
Edit: that film is : Machismo, Forty Graves for Forty Guns
I watched Hunt and Padill’s Machismo a while back and didn’t like it at all. Although the end action is good, it cannot prevent the film from having a sexploitatio/ULTRA cheap feel. It feels like a strait to video type movie.In fact, This is also very cheasy. It tries to talk about racism and stuff but is too preachy on that subject. And the violence is just violence for the sake of violence. I am still interested in the Great Gundown but am somewhat sceptical
