Movie Reviews

Episode 1 - The Franco Menace?
T. Dyson | 11/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I keep saying this but nobody seems to know what I am going on about: This must be 'the other' big influence on the original Star Wars film! The first being "The Hidden Fortress" which Lucas has credited. But as far as I know has never credited this.Has anybody else spotted the 'cantina' scene (pistols instead of light sabres) - or the 'old ben' character in the desert... or the son going to avenge his father's death then finding out that... well you know the rest. There's a whole bunch of other bits you'll recognise too even if you're not a Star Wars nerd. The lead character even looks a bit like Luke Skywalker!Besides that, it's a great film with a great score and beautifully shot.This, along with Django, Bullet for the General (Quien Sabe), Compañeros, are all glorious in their own ways (and available on DVD!) but my favourite - just because it's a film like no other is The Great Silence... BUY IT NOW!!!"
Are Justice And Revenge One And The Same?
M. Hencke | New York, NY United States | 04/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Terrific fast paced and tightly plotted spaghetti western directed by Fernando Baldi. Franco Nero is the second greatest western actor next to Clint Eastwood. Great score and some potent shootouts. A well rounded film with an interesting thematic message on retribution and vengeance that rings true throughout. One of the best italian westerns I have ever seen."
An American Style Spaghetti Western !
Triet M. Nguyen | Southborough, MA USA | 07/27/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First, a word of warning: if you think Texas Adios is another of those ultra-violent, stylized spaghetti westerns, you may be disappointed. On the other hand, if you like your westerns on the melodramatic side, you'll enjoy this movie. In fact, this one has a more "classic" feel than say "Django", as Franco Nero himself pointed out in an interview included on the DVD. Away from the always dependable Nero, the movie lacks a good, charismatic villain a la Gian Maria Volonte and the acting level is undistinguished. I did enjoy watching Nero in the most stylish leather trench coat this side of the Rio Grande !"
Action-packed fun
Gary Cross | Auckland New Zealand | 05/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"OK. So there's no way you can claim this is a classic. The dialogue is shocking (but that's the case with most spaghetti westerns). But I'm going to give it 5 stars for sheer enjoyment value. Like the great spaghetti westerns of the mid sixties (Navajo Joe, Django, the Leone trilogy, The Hills Run Red, Death Rides a Horse), Texas Adio starts with a hiss and a roar and just keeps on going at a break-neck pace, building up to what has to be one of the loudest gunfights in western history. The action is brutal and frequent as in all classic spaghettis, although the tone and manner is more like those big boisterous American westerns of the forties and fifties. I''ve only seen this on a wiedescreen version from the UK, so I can't comment on the DVD extras. But get it for the film content alone. it's one of the best."
