Film Journal International

Lazy slapstick, farfetched melodrama and some fleeting nudity add up to a film that will mean little to those who aren't devotees of the genre.

... a tribute to the magic of movies and moviemaking set and shot in Almeria, Spain (home to scores of sixties westerns).

This isn't one of de la Iglesia's vitriolic works

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Pays homage to the golden age of spaghetti Westerns and gleefully skewers the romantic image of cowboy righteousness that fuels American theme parks, country music, political campaigns and cigarette ads.

The Spanish wild man Alex de la Iglesia delivers a disappointingly well-behaved film with this sentimental comedy about a boy's reunion with his lovably eccentric grandfather.

It thinks it's cute, but it's as charming as an old drunk going on about how he knew Eastwood back in the day.

800 Bullets has funny moments, but it also has a lot of drag time.

Álex de la Iglesia's charming comedy celebrates the resilient power of dreams, memories, and the movies.

Strictly for anyone who ever wanted to know what it would be like if Chris Columbus directed El Topo.
