Reviews

Classic spaghetti western starring Burt Reynolds. After destroying an Indian village, a group of outlaws led by Duncan (Aldo Sambrell) arrives in the town of Esperanza, and is hired by a crooked doctor to carry out a train robbery. But the sole survivor from the Indian village, a renegade Navajo named Joe (Reynolds), foils the plan by relocating the money. An irate Duncan holds an innocent Indian girl hostage until Joe surrenders. The brave citizens of Esperanza, under siege by the bandits, risk their lives to free Joe, who is their only hope of surviving.

4.0 out of 5 stars Navajo Joe 29 Oct 2008
By S.Anny
Format:DVD
Navajo Joe stars a young Burt Reynolds and is directed by Sergio Corbucci.
It is one of the best spaghetti westerns and Reynolds is good in the leading role, the score by Ennio Morricone is excellent and the action scenes are well directed by corbucci. Reccomended to all western fans and newcomers to the genre.
The dvd has a very good 16:9 transfer, sadly the only extra is a trailer.
Completists note the film has been cut by 6 seconds to remove cruel horsefalls and a cockfight. An uncut dvd is available region 1.

2.0 out of 5 stars Navajo No 26 Feb 2012
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Despite being directed by Django, Companeros and The Great Silence's Sergio Corbucci, Navajo Joe is a rather flat and average Italian Western that would probably be as hard to find today as many of his other lesser westerns if it weren't for an early starring role for Burt Reynolds. Unfortunately Reynolds hadn't quite harnessed his movie star mojo in 1966 and merely makes an adequate rather than iconic hero as the Navajo seeking revenge on Aldo Sambrell's gang of scalphunters who murdered his wife and child. After stealing a train and its $500,000 cargo from them after they kill both the soldiers guarding it and all the passengers, women and babes in arms included, he finds himself rather ineffectually defending a town of second generation immigrants that hates him for not being a proper `American' and going through all the genre staples - picking off the bad guys two-by-two or one-by-one (for no good reason Sambrell never sends enough men to do the job of killing him properly), getting captured and tortured, escaping with the help of the meekest of the supporting cast and finishing off the rest of the baddies.

In principle there's everything you need for a decent actioner here, but it doesn't quite play out that way. None of it is terribly imaginative and the action only sporadically well handled, which may well be a sign of the behind the camera tension. Reynolds reputedly only signed because he thought Sergio Leone was directing and hated every minute of the production and never made any secret of his contempt for the film while Corbucci only signed because he thought Marlon Brando was starring, and at times you can definitely tell that this is a film the two are only making because they're under contract.

4.0 out of 5 stars Navajo Joe 7 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Burt Reynolds is great as a Navajoe indian hunting down a gang of ruthless bandits who murdered his wife and wiped out his entire tribe.

Director Sergio Corbucci (Django, Great Silence) as usual gives us a solid film with fine action and a lively story to keep us all entertained.

Ennio Morricone scores the film and it is one of his best!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Navajo Nearly No! 14 Dec 2013
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Navajo Joe is directed by Sergio Corbucci and collectively written by Fernando Di Leo, Ugo Pirro and Piero Regnoli. It stars Burt Reynolds, Aldo Sambrell, Nicoletta Machiavelli, Tanya Lopert and Fernando Rey. Music is by Ennico Morricone and cinematograpy by Silvano Ippolitti.

Though Reynolds would say it's the worst film he ever made, anyone who has followed his career will know that simply isn't the case! It's an odd Spaghetti Western that sees Reynolds play the title character, who strides out for revenge against the ragamuffin varmints who slaughtered his woman and tribe. Cue blood letting galore as Joe enacts said revenge with bloodthirsty glee as the hints of anti-racism struggle to show their heads above the pasta strewn pulpit.

Narratively there's nothing else to add, it's simplicity 101 and at times it becomes laborious. Where the film doesn't lack for interest is with the technical aspects. Corbucci hones his skills as a purveyor of brutal set pieces, each striking for entertainment purpose. Ippolitti adds his own brand of cinematography, gracing the story with a pizzaz it doesn't deserve, whilst Morricone provides a wonderfully catchy musical score. As for Reynolds? He does OK. Veering close to being pantomime and showing a lack of interest, his all round brooding charisma shines bright and gives the picture a macho edge.

Not a great film by any stretch of the imagination, the script is just too lazy, but it is above average and Spaghetti Western fans can find enough here to gorge on for a satisfying meal. 6/10
