5.0 out of 5 stars Superb western, 25 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Keoma [DVD] [1976] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Franco Nero is Keoma a "half-breed" loner and gunfighter who after years away returns to his childhood home. When there he discovers the town is run by a greedy landowner and his sadistic bandits, he also comes into conflict with his much despised and vengeful half brothers...
"Keoma" is directed by Enzo G. Castellari (The New Barbarians/Street Law) and it's an absolutely brilliant film and one of the best westerns ever made. The cinematography is outstanding with beautiful scenery and there are numerous imaginative and high class scenes. You could say there are influences from Leone and Peckinpah but Castellari has a style all of his own and his talent as a director is showcased to the full here. The action sequences are of the highest quality packed with suspense and violence and are enjoyable and exciting. Franco Nero puts in a great powerful performance in the lead and other cast members include William Berger (Sabata), Olga Karlatos (Zombie), Donald O'Brian (Zombie Holocaust) and Woody Strode.
The dvd release from Blue Underground is region 0 and the picture is brilliant. Extras include a commentary by Enzo G. Castellari, an interview with Franco Nero and some biographies. I recommend you pick this classic up now!

All Blue Underground and Anchor Bay DVDS are Regeion 0 and All Blue Underground Blu-Rays are region free except Django because Django is handled or distributed by several other studios worldwide they could only give it a domestic release (US) so don't fear all other releases will be region free unless the same circumstances arise again.

Hope this helps

Also the Blue Underground version is UNCUT where as the UK version is CUT due to Horse falls.
