Movie Reviews

"Da uomo a uomo" There's only one man in this movie.
ghostwryter | USA | 08/14/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Sergio Leone defines the genre, but there are other Italian directors who know their way around the spaghetti western. If they have Lee Van Cleef to work with, well, the audience is in for a really good time.Death Rides a Horse is the relatively unknown masterpiece in an era that produced westerns of varying quality. It has all the plot prerequisites: blood and mayhem galore, a wrong the needs righting, and an interesting relationship between the avenging good guy and the man who crosses his path with an agenda of his own that needs taking care of.The music is quirky as only Ennio Morricone knows how make it; and the photography, if you are lucky enough to watch a good copy, has that hot, stark quality favored by the directors of these films. The acting is another matter. At one end of the spectrum is John Phillip Law who has the personality and delivery of a piece of cardboard, on the other, Lee Van Cleef who is grand mastered of the sinister glance and soft-spoken line. It's Van Cleef's movie all the way, right down to his last gesture of self-sacrifice in the end.It's a shame that this movie has been allowed to deteriorate, but Turner Broadcasting has a good copy. Maybe if we leave enough requests on the TCM web site, they will run it for us sometime."
Great Movie but ... Miserable Quality DVD
Michael Zachary | Corona, CA United States | 01/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Of course, I love the movie, the plot, and everything to do with it. Lee Van Cleef is outstanding! However, the DVD sound quality is miserable! It sounds like those cheap Chinese imports about Kung Fu. The quality of the video is also poor. I know it's not my DVD player, because (1) my player is brand new-high quality, and (2) right after I saw this one I put in the "Hang Em High" DVD, and the sound and video quality was quite good. So, in summary, I love the movie and Van Cleef, but I hate the video and audio quality on the DVD. Can't they clean it up with all the high-tech equipment that they have? If they do, I will buy the cleaned-up version."
Similar to For a Few Dollars More
T O'Brien | Chicago, Il United States | 01/21/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For fans of the spaghetti western genre, Death Rides a Horse will remind them of For A Few Dollars More, one of Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy starring Clint Eastwood. While very similar the film is still worth watching. Lee Van Cleef is awesome, as usual, with John Phillip Law giving a decent performance albeit without much emotion. Usual cast of supporters in the genre with Luigi Pistilli and Mario Brega and even a small part with Anthony Dawson. Excellent storyline with one of the best endings in the spaghetti genre. However the DVD is of very poor quality with no extras offered whatsoever. Do what I did and wait for Turner Classic Movies to air it in widescreen and tape it. Only reason I give this DVD 3 stars is because of the quality. The movie on its own would probably be closer to five."
