    While not as polished as the films of Leone or Corbucci, it still has much to offer. An intriguing revenge thriller/dysfunctional buddy flick in which Cleef and Law are selfish bastards whose paths happen to cross. Petroni paints a opaque picture of a world where justice is subjective. If Leone is the Godfather of spaghetti westerns, then Petroni is the inspired uncle. He doesn't hit all the right notes but certainly has the lifeblood of the genre running through his veins. Also, Ennio Morricone (who I am sure has scored every Italian western ever) impresses again with an outlandish score that somehow seems to work perfectly for the film. All in all, an underrated and smart italian western.

    I watched a terrible copy of this, so dark you couldn't tell what was happening in the night scenes, but the story's good, the musics by Ennio Morricone (though not one of his best), and Lee van Cleef's in it - what more could you want on a rainy Sunday afternoon. And it's number 8 in Quentin Tarantino's top 20 favourite Spaghetti Westerns too.

    While full of common places in the western genre Death Rides a Horse has an identity and flow of it's own. Luciano Vincenzoni, co-writer of Good, bad, and ugly and for a few dollars more, explores this tale of vengeance giving us well build characters and motivations. Petroni's direction is sharp, straight to the point and well paced. Morricone's score gives the proper background of tragedy and sorrow to this tale. Cleef and Law develope a convincing chemistry as mentor and apprenticce. While Law's acting is limited his boyish naive look and reserved performance gives his character the credibility it needs. This is a young man in search for vengeance, a man who saw his family die in frot of him. He's not a character of big emotions because this is not a film about big things, the story is tasting every single detail, squeezing all the juice it can. It takes it's time, and the results are very rewarding. Just beware of all the R1 lousy DVD editions of the film, terrible presentation and cuts. Seems the movie became public domain. Just get the R2 UK DVD for the proper experience.

    Really well done Spaghetti Western / Revenge flick starring Lee Van Cleef. The deal is two men are trying to get revenge on the same gang. One witnessed his family being brutally murdered when he was a child, but survived the massacre and has devoted his life to the pursuit of vengeance. The other has just gotten out of a 15 year bid for a crime he didn't commit and too has devoted his life to vengeance. Inevitably their paths cross and mass shootout's occur. One of Morricone's best scores effectively sampled here ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmFmxz9SfXI ) and also borrowed in Tarintino's Kill Bill. All in all a damn good time and you could do a lot worse with 2 hours. Recommended.
