Damn I love John Woo. I can’t even count the number of ways he made it possible to shoot while sliding on something or leaping sideways through something or just somehow moving in some way while firing at least a single gun and often two. And the body count in this is just crazy. I can’t remember seeing a movie where innocent bystanders are just blown away indiscriminately like they were here. Just nuts. Chow Yun-Fat and a young Tony…
Haven’t seen young Raquel Welch in anything in a long time. And putting her up against Ernest Borgnine, Jack Elam and Strother Martin makes her appear even more gorgeous (if that’s even possible). Typical revenge western with the wife in the role of the avenger instead of the husband which is a nice change. The 3 evil brothers are so over-the-top stupid it’s amazing but all three of the above mentioned actors certainly play their roles well.
Nothing special (except Welch) but enjoyable nonetheless.
Almost 100 years ago! Every time I watch one from this era I’m amazed what they could do that long ago. Everyone in this movie is creepy...the bad guys, the good guys, people just wandering around in the background of a scene...EVERYONE.
Amazing how they couldn’t figure out who the vampire was in this and yet no one took notice of the weird guy who spent all night staring out his window.
This was something. Mostly incoherent until the last 15 minutes or so when they threw in a bunch of flashbacks to explain what the hell is going on. But I honestly had no idea what was going on beyond everyone killing each other for most of it. Which I guess doesn’t really matter as long as people are getting killed creatively. I think this is the first slasher-ish movie I’ve seen where everyone is the killer. And then the ending…
