This review is from: Death Rides A Horse [DVD] (DVD)
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.
