GREAT SILENCE, COMPAÑEROS)

Now this is Spaghetti western the way it
should be! The beginning is just classic: Franco
Nero walking through the desert
dragging a coffin behind him. Nero is a perfect Spaghetti
Western "hero", and this being his first in the genre, I can
really understand why he's been a part of so many other spaghetties.
It was considered very brutal and graphic when it was released,
thus it got banned in several countries. Sure, there are loads
of more violent movies out there today, but there are a couple
of gory scenes that were especially fun to watch. There's
lots of nice action and the score is pretty good as well.
There's no doubt the director had been watching Sergio
Leone's westerns when doing this
one, but who cares.. It works! Alongside Leone's classics,
this is one of my favourite Spaghetti westerns. If you're
a fan of the genre, and haven't seen this one yet, you should!
