    This is such an enjoyable movie, and Jack Palace as a one-handed Hawk weilding pothead villain can't be overstated.

    One of the best ever. Scaldingly over the top performances by Palance and Franco Nero, and one of the best Spaghetti Western scores of all time. This film combines fine adventure with complete absurdity, and despite the level of violence, it is a genuinely funny film. How can you not like a film with lines like, "How did you get off that cross I nailed you to in Cuba?" Worth watching more than once, and each time you hear or see something new.

    Okay, for a start, I have to just say that Franco Nero and Tomas Milian are both just a fucking DELIGHT in this film, which is peppered throughout with some impressive gunplay and humor. Jack Palance plays a vicious villain and I just dug this one from start to finish. Well worth a rental if you get the chance.

    Basically a remake of The Mercenary, and nowhere near as good. Some good comedy moments but overall it's a bit of a drag.

    Corbucci spesso viene paragonato vicino a Sergio leone, mi spiace per Corbucci ma Leone è un vero genio, lui sicuramente sa fare il suo lavoro ma la carica che riesce a mettere nelle scene Leone è qualcosa di incredibile. Non ho visto molti film di questo regista, ma sicuramente tra quelli che ho visto questo è quello più riuscito.

    An unbelievable soundtrack from Morricone. One of the most memorable screen villians in Jack Palance's 'John' and a bloody finale with Franco Nero and a Multiple barreled machine gun. Spaghetti Western gold.

    Only for the few, not for the mass, not for the irrelevant. For those who know and probe into the past!!

    â~Companerosâ(TM) is a far more polished and glossily produced spaghetti western then â~Djangoâ(TM) or â~The Great Silenceâ(TM), director Sergio Corbucciâ(TM)s other well known films. Thereâ(TM)s an actual Hollywood movie star, in the person of Jack Palance, playing a marijuana smoking bad guy whoâ(TM)s into falconry and torture, along with some much nicer sets and big explosions. Even the gatling gun that recalls Djangoâ(TM)s weapon of choice looks like a much more realistic prop gun. But all these improvements in production values seem to come at a cost in terms of Corbucciâ(TM)s artistry and personal vision. I donâ(TM)t want to say heâ(TM)s sold out exactly. This film has some of the same cynicism of Corbucciâ(TM)s earlier masterpieces but I donâ(TM)t think the earlier Corbucci would have blown up a character like the diabolical one played by Palance, sending his screw-on hand flying through the air. And the revolutionaries who articulate a humane vision for the future of Mexico make surprising progress in this film. But it does have many excellently staged shootouts, torture scenes and a brilliantly realized cynical take on humanity which is only to be expected in a Sergio Corbucci film. Less full of gritty low-budget delights than his earlier films, this is nonetheless a very good spaghetti western.
