[quote=“Chris_Casey, post:141, topic:177”]One would think so, Phil.
But, honestly…it has just as much to do with Nero’s light-weight performance and Corbucci’s uneven direction as it does with the “Milian Factor”.
To me, COMPANEROS just can’t make up its mind if it is going to be over-the-top funny…or serious…or what. Frequently, Spaghetti Westerns are successful at mixing humorous and non-humorous elements; but, I find the humorous bits in VAMOS A MATAR COMPANEROS to be jarring (for the most part).
Having said all that, though, I really do like the film (COMPANEROS).
However, I love THE MERCENARY.[/quote]
Well, I think Milian is great, but I’m with Chris on easily preferring The Mercenary over Companeros. However, I still think Comapneros is great and especially like the introduction to Companeros which I still can’t believe was cut in the original English language release.
[quote=“autephex, post:139, topic:177”]bought a bootleg copy of the japanese disc off ebay a long time ago, one of the first spaghettis I bought… have loved it ever since.
its long overdue for a rewatch, but waiting for the Koch release[/quote]
I have an original copy of the Japanese disc which has always been one of the gems in my DVD collection. This new Koch disc had better be something special for me to consider casting this one aside…
