A Gringo (John Richardson) arrives with a train in a town called Guaynas. He has two suitcases with him: One with weapons, the other with speakers. He is searching a treasure and the gets help from the Revolutionary Lobo (Fernando Sancho)…
A pretty good film but no masterpiece. And it’s no Western, more an adventure film with much western elements and revolutionaries. They were ‘modern’ cars, helicopters and modern machine guns.
The film has a very good cast with John Richarsson, Fernando Sancho, Eduardo Fajardo, Luis Induini, Victor Israel, Tito Garcia, Luis Barnoo… and the make a good job.
Sometimes the film is very funny, for example as Richardson rescues Sancho before the Execution with an Speaker. He says to the soldiers they should lay down their guns but the commander said they should aim ;D
I have not noticed too much of the story because my version is in Italian but the film is very entertaining and the finale shoot out is pretty good !
It’s an nice adventure film, not more and not less.
I must say, I really like it.
6,5-7 / 10
I’ve seen an Italian TV Brodcast in around 1,56:1 wich runs 90 minutes. I don’t know about another version. I’ve thought they isn’t available in any form ! I’m glad to have this one.[/quote]
Thanks to Italo-West-Fan I could watch this oddity.
Set in Guaynas (is that Guyana?) instead of Mexico and in the early 60s (judging from clothing, music, cars etc.) this is not a spaghetti western, but it could almost pass as one. Nearly all ingredients of a good Zapata are there, including Eduardo Fajardo as a local dictator and Fernando Sancho as a hard-drinking, ebullient revolutionary leader. The plot is quite complicated and nobody is what (and who) he pretends to be.
The protagonist is a sound-engeneer who uses his skills to confuse his opponents. We also get trains, automobiles, helicopters and God knows what more (yes: beautiful women)
Cheaply made, shot near the Costa del Sol, no sign of authenticity whatsoever, but remarkably enjoyable
I write a short review this week and will also change the Film’s Page
