Vincenzo Averello Attempts to Murder Us.

In our ongoing quest to fulfill the IndieGoGo campaign perks, Sean and I tackle The Stranger and the Gunfighter (aka El kárate, el Colt y el impostor, aka Blood Money).

It’s a fusion of spaghetti Western and Shaw Brothers kung fu film that stars Lee Van Cleef and Lieh Lo.

It ought to be awesome, right? Click on the VHS cover or the title above to download our review of the film to find out.

Review in a Nutshell: This movie is bad. Really, really, really bad. Not the good kind of bad. The bad kind of bad.

  1. Saw this once, a long time ago – not as awesome as you’d hope it would be, but still better than SHANGHAI NOON, IMO….

  2. Although Paul committed GRAND HERESY by hating on The Warrior’s Way, a film entirely without flaw on any level that is undeniably the Greatest Movie EVER! of 2010 (disclaimer: Smokin’ Aces would hold that honor for 2006, were it not for Crank), I thought it interesting that it wasn’t until near the end of the podcast that it was noted “oh by the way, this movie is a comedy.” Comedy rarely works when watching foreign cinema, especially stuff that’s incredibly broad such as this, and unfunny comedies are the least enjoyable thing to watch of all.

    I don’t mind The Good, The Bad, and the Weird but it’s certainly more “weird” than anything else. I think the reason why we’re continually let down by these movies is that we’re expecting more action and less slapstick from them.

    Speaking of weird, Sartana movies certainly fit the bill. If You Meet Sartana, Pray For Your Death is the original.
