4.0 out of 5 stars once upon a time .....the revolution!, 25 Sept. 2003
This review is from: A Fistful Of Dynamite [DVD] (DVD)
A lesser known constituent of famed director Sergio Leone’s stable, A Fistful of Dynamite takes place during the Mexican revolution of 1913.
Sean Mallory (James Coburn) is a fugitive Irishman with more than a passing talent for explosives who is on the run from the troubles of Ireland and his past. He encounters Juan, a Mexican peasant, played by Rod Steiger. Steiger’s Juan convinces Sean to take part in robbing a bank, ostensibly to relieve it of its loot. Action and revolutionary politics entwine in a western that is certainly as enjoyable as Leone’s earlier films.
At times and especially in the first third of the film it contains numerous comic moments. However in the later stages, the film rations these, divesting itself of some of the earlier humor when dealing with topics such as class struggle, political prisoners, and governmental brutality. Naturally, the movie contains most of Leone’s trademarks, fast zooms, screen filling close-ups, and long elegiac shots matched with another of Ennio Morricone’s unique and masterful scores.
The DVD print looks great on my Tele so I’m sure it’d look truly excellent on a decent one!
