Product Description

Fifteen years after four bandits massacred his family, a young man (John Phillip Law) seeks revenge. Several of the men responsible now hold positions of power in the new West, but one of the bandits (Lee van Cleef) is due to be released from prison. Having been framed by the others all those years ago, he is ready to exact bloody reprisals, and so forms an unholy alliance with the vengeance-seeking man whose family he helped destroy.

I am no expert in the genre, but lets tick off the boxes here – Ennio Morricone score, morally dubious heroes, revenge driven story, nasty Mexican bandit baddies who laugh at anything remotely unpleasant, terrible dubbing –yep, must be a Spaghetti Western!
If you are a fan of Spaghetti Westerns, this is among the best, and if you have just been tempted by the Clint Eastwood / Sergio Leone, then I thoroughly recommend this as the next step (right after ‘My Name is Nobody’, the next best thing to a Leone Western).
This is a fast moving revenge Western with an apparently simple plot filled out with memorable characters and situations, and a genually satisfying conclusion. Sure, it does not have the style or panache of Leone, and Morricone’s score is not his best – but a less than perfect score from Morricone is still better than most others, and it is a memorable distinctive musical treat. The alternating themes of strumming guitar and choral voices bring his usual uniqueness to the movie, and the movie benefits greatly from it.
The story follows a young boy who witnesses the brutal rape and murder of his mother and sister, and murder of his father. He grows up as a respectable community member (John Phillip Law), but shuns responsibility while he harbours one thing in mind – revenge. This lies latent until he crosses paths with Ryan (Lee van Cleef), an ex con whose similar drive of revenge seems to coincide with Ryans goal. They form an uneasy alliance which teeters between help and competition to be the one who kills the bad guys.. mostly competing to make sure they get there first.

Death Rides a Horse (AKA: Da uomo a uomo/As Man to Man) is directed by Giulio Petroni and written by Luciano Vincenzoni. It stars Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, Carlo Pisacane, Luigi Pistilli, Anthony Dawson, Jose Torres and Carla Cassola. A Technicolor/Techniscope production, music is by Ennio Morricone and cinematography by Carlo Carlini.

As a young boy Bill Meceita (Law), hidden away and cowering, was witness to the rape and murder of his family. 15 years later he is out for revenge against the gang who committed the crimes. Also after the same gang is Ryan (Cleef), fresh out of prison and with his own reasons for vengeance. Two men with the same objective, but not "exactly" working together even as they keep crossing each others paths...

Highly regarded by staunch Spaghetti Western fans, Death Rides a Horse has all the staple requirements in place to understand why that is the case. However, and it is a fun, violent and technically smart picture, it still comes across as a little jaded, even unadventurous. Certainly as an appetiser to the more well known Spaghetti's from the houses of Leone, Corbucci et al, it's filling for sure, a good starting point in fact for those exploring the sub-genre for the first time. But it hardly transcends Spaghetti Western World.

It's ripe with scope landscapes, sweaty close ups of hard bastard anti-heroes and low life villains, violence that grabs the senses as Morricone whirls his musical baton of sublime distortional sounds, and of course there's Van Cleef doing what he does best, acting with a visual skill that says so much whilst actually doing very little.

At last! we have this great widescreen-version of this great movie, one of the best italian-western revenge stories!
Great quality, picture and sound and a very good soundtrack by maestro Ennio Morricone.
THIS is the version to buy, forget about the other versions!

I saw this film at the Coronet theatre [formerly the Atlas] in Victoria when it was first released. I remember enjoying it,however at the time I was a teenager and perhaps easier to please. I became interested in seeing it again when I heard some of Ennio Morricone's sound track music from it being use in Kill Bill . Finding a watchable copy of the film in Canada has been a real problem, all of the dvds available are god awful cheesy cheap public domain copies. I was happy to find this MGM copy from the U.K. [ it does have to be played on a all region dvd player though]. So after finally watching it all these years later, I still think the movie is an enjoyable spaghetti western. The direction,sets,photography are nowhere near as stylish as in a Leone western. The score by Morricone is good and elevates the movie. Lee Van Cleef, as always, is great to watch. John Phillip Law is also fun to watch though at times I swear he's doing a parody of John Wayne.

Giulio Petroni made serveral good Spaghetti westerns, and " Death Rides A Horse " deserves it`s reputation
as a true classic with both a surprising story and a great score from Ennio Morricone.
Lee Van Cleef clearly enjoys his rolle as the master gun-slinger who helps the young John P. Law geting
revenge for the brutal massacre of his entire family. The movie is a serious western, but there is also a
lot of fun in the growing relationship between the old experienced gun-fighter and the hotheaded youth.
The MGM disk is both looking and sounding great - only complain is the complet lack of any extra-material.
