Spaghetti western gets standard treatment here; interesting talent and good wintry locations go a long way. Final Grade: C+

An interesting western that has a very un-Hollywood ending. I was expecting more when I heard that this compares to Serio Leone's classics. I was misinformed. If you are a fan of westerns, this one should please you, if not - stay away.

Spaghetti served cold

Corbucciís brutal western recreates the Snow Hill, Utah, massacre of 1898, and pulls no punches in doing so. Jean-Louis Trintignant stars as not only the man with no name (complete with cheroot), but the man with no voice. Jean-Louis looks quite at home on the range which is more than can be said for his nemesis and bounty hunter Klaus Kinski who wears a fur coat so huge, he looks like he stepped out of his old friendís documentary about bears.

The subtitled dialogue is pretty terrible and the Italian cast with their cissy haircuts donít exactly exude authenticity as cowpokes. Combine all this with a lack of respect for the Ďcode of the westí, epitomized in an ending which is beyond bleak, and you begin to see why western purists hate the spaghetti offshoots so much. Itís not so much r...
