Another fun one (though not as dark) from Alex de la Iglesia.

A funny, warm homage to the glory days of spaghetti westerns.

A family feud is resolved through a very dramatic, western style manner. Art direction was pretty good, and so was the overall acting. A pretty decent comedy.

A film thats very hit and miss. but anyone whos into the spagetti westerns wil see something. set in a spanish town, where supposedly a lot of them were made, and a stuntman of the time helping run the town as a tourist atraction. the film is at times stylish, and many references to the genre, with some great namechecks. lots of flaws, and a very weird scene with a hooker seducing a very young kid with him touching her breasts fit uncomfortably. so overall a curious watch.

Em um pequeno povoado da Espanha vive um grupo de pistoleiros, antigos figurantes de cinema, que fazem shows com cenas de bangue-bangue para os turistas do local. Lá vivem Julián (Sancho Garcia), um dublador veterano que deu voz a Clint Eastwood em seus filmes; Cheyenne (Ángel de Andrés López), um pistoleiro covarde; Manuel (Manuel Tallafé), um kamikaze; Arrastrao (Enrique Martínez), um cavaleiro azarado; e ainda o Enterrador (Luciano Federico), um italiano misterioso. A vida de todos muda drasticamente de rumo após agentes imobiliários resolverem investir no local, fazendo com que o grupo troque as balas de festim por outras de verdade, na intenção de defendê-lo de mudanças.

Too arch to reach the peaks of Iglesia's other genre exercises. There are moments, but the story, where in a old stuntman connects with his grandson, is cloying and insincere.

Entretenida, de pronto muy larga, una peli para toda la familia, un Alex de la Iglesia light.

A bizarre social satire and tribute to the lost tradition of the Spaghetti Western, set in the Spanish desert and on the sets where these low-budget westerns were actually filmed during the 1960s and early 70s (a must-see for Spaghetti Western aficionados); a truly brilliant idea in the hands of a maverick director, yet somehow, something was lacking throughout the filmâ?¦

interesante, entretenida, disparatada, no es lo mejor de Alex de la Iglesia, pero salva

Lots of fun. Any movie that is not afraid to show little kids as the bastards they are can win my heart (the main tot shouting "Jihad! Jihad! Viva el Islam!" is a highlight). Self-aware spaghetti western with a heart. Worth your time.

Spanish comedy about stuntmen. Quite good if a little weird!

Evocador retrato del mundo de los especialistas, puesto al servicio de un guion disparatado. Hasta hace no mucho, asi era la Almeria de los "Stunts". A mi me gusta.

Muy chula.Estupendo homenaje a los actores que salían de secundarios o figurantes en el spaguetti western...

Very, very enjoyable silliness in an OTT tribute to the ultra-violent spaghetti westerns
