Critic Reviews for White Commanche
White Comanche is a would-be cult item, albeit one with a weak pulse, since the Shatner character who gets the most screen time, isn't endowed with much personality.
Audience Reviews for White Commanche
140830: How low can you go? William Shatner in a spaghetti western, and a pretty bad spaghetti western to boot. This film is corny, but that corniness brought a few smiles to my face. Getting shot in the forehead seems to be a common cause of death in Rio Hondo. Some fun characters but don't become too attached as many of them die in a big gun battle halfway through. Shatner plays two roles, those of twin brothers, thereby doubling the amount of bad acting on his part. Comically poor but a must see for spaghetti and Shatner fans who can put up with all the nonsense. The musical accompaniment is memorable.
So bad it's funny. I watched it with my finger on the fast forward button part of the time, and the rest of the time I was howling at the horrible dialog and non-existent plot. It's bizarre, and if you think truly bad cinema can be entertaining it's a must.
This is the worst western I have ever seen. All the dialogue is terrible (although some of it was unintentionally funny), the lighting is substandard, and everyone's timing is off. Joseph Cotten is the sherriff and William Shatner pulls double duty as both the noble cowboy and his evil native american brother. The novie was shot in spain and no one in the film sounds even vagely western, A film like this makes you appreciate how good Leoni really was.
