Audience Reviews for Texas, Addio
I'll take care of punishment around here Burt Sullivan resigns from his job as a local Texas sheriff and takes his kid brother to Mexico in search of the man that killed his father, Cisco. Once in Mexico, Burt discovers that Cisco is the ruthless landowner of a small Mexican town and he terrorizes the local residence. Burt and his brother will need to convince the townspeople to stand with them against the ruthless Cisco. "Are you tired of living?" "Yes. Under these conditions, who wouldn't be?" Ferdinando Baldi, director of Long Lasting Days, Get Mean, Crazy Westerners, Blind Man, and Massacre in the Black Forest, delivers Adios Texas. The storyline for this picture is similar to most pictures within the western genre and reminded me of a serious version of the Three Amigos. The storyline was fairly good and the action scenes were entertaining. The cast delivers adequate performances and includes Franco Nero, Luigi Pistilli, Gino Pernice, and Elisa Montes. "I'm afraid, stranger, some dirty vermin stole your horses." This movie came as part of a Spaghetti Western trilogy I recently obtained (it came with the Nero Django pictures). I will say there were some surprises and tragic deaths in this movie, but as a whole, it was only average and delivered minimal unique sequences and sub plots. This is worth watching for fans of the genre. "Next time, mind your own business." Grade: C+/B- (6.5)
"Texas, Adios" starts with a shootout in Texas that Sheriff Burt Sullivan(Franco Nero) settles by stopping a bounty killer from killing a defenseless thief in cold blood. He then assures the bounty killer that the bounty will be spent on a good cause. That might just turn out to be Burt going to Mexico to seek out his father's killer, Cisco Delgado(Jose Suarez). Reluctantly, he agrees to bring his younger brother Jim(Colle Kitosch) along for the ride. Once on the other side of the border, everybody is either too afraid or belligerent to talk to them. But the brothers are not going anywhere, even after attempts are made to bribe them and forcibly remove them by the authorities. "Texas, Adios" is an entertaining and violent Spaghetti Western(that I watched in Italian, by the way) that seeks to explore the differences between justice and revenge in the old west. At one point, Jim asks his brother why he is so much more trigger happy south of the border. And the answer may have something to do with in the states, the bandits are poor, while in this part of Mexico they are the ones in power, leaving him no authority to turn to address wrongs. But then nothing is as simple at it first seems...
Not a great movie by any stretch, but itâ€™s Franco Nero killing a bunch of bad guys in a duster. It works extremely well as a fun b-movie spaghetti western, a simple story of revenge. While this does have one of the worst dubbings Iâ€™ve ever heard for a movie (Franco Nero is dubbed by three different voice actors), it doesnâ€™t detract all that much from the overall feel of the movie. I like it because it plays by the rules and is extremely fun, itâ€™s impossible not to enjoy.
