As 'spaghetti' westerns go, this one's linguine!

"Italian name of ARIZONA COLT RETURNS: "Arizona si scatenò... e li fece fuori tutti."
Westerns just don't get any more 'Euro' than this one. There's not an English-speaking actor in sight and no mediocre dubbing here. If you don't understand Italian you'll have to rely on the provided subtitles. As is usual with the genre, Spanish scrub country stands in nicely for the American wild west.
In this sequel (with a new star), 'Arizona Colt' is not your typical eagle-eyed gunslinger-- he's really kinda lazy. His dumpy, comic-relief sidekick 'Double Whiskey' has easily scarfed down four hundred too many servings of mostaccioli rigati. Yah gotta feel for the guy's poor horse!
There's a thousand buck bounty on Arizona (don't expect Eastwood and Van Cleef to show up here!). An unmotivated marshal actually takes Arizona into custody after a lady bar owner knocks him unconscious with a whiskey bottle. Our anti-hero escapes with his crappy theme music in tow and Marshal Who-gives-a-dang can't be bothered going after him.
Mr. Colt steals loot from the banditos' hideout, the gang comes after him, unshaven smelly guys with bad-looking teeth die, and so on. You've seen it all before, yes? Well, maybe not in the original Italiano....
Speaking of Clint and Lee... why not buy FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (1965) instead? It's got gunslingers, ugly-looking fly-infested hombres, a stash of stolen money and an unforgettable Ennio Morricone score.
Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
