Customer Reviews

I have my doubts that it's been digitally remastered.

Charles Bronson is one of my favorite actors but this film is very slow moving at the beginning and didn't get much better; I quit watching after the first 45 minutes.
Randy W
Basically bad guy wins and is quite atypical to this type of movies.

Those seeking one of those "spaghetti westerns" which are filled with noise and violence and exaggerated flourishes will probably be disppointed in "Chino." It moves at a deliberate pace, keeps the action in check, and knows the virtue of silence. The result is an odd, understated movie that almost qualifies as a "character study."
Charles Bronson plays a loner who runs a small horse-farm in the waning days of the American frontier. He takes in a runaway boy as a helper, visits an Indian village on the verge of extinction, and engages in a hesitant courtship with the sister of a hostile landowner. That's about it for the plot which concludes in a somber, realistic fashion.
The by-play between Bronson and real-life wife Jill Ireland is mildly amusing, the scenery is attractive and well-photographed, and for those who like to see Bronson with his shirt off, there's a scene where he's hanged by the wrists and flogged across his bare back by one of the hostile landowner's hired men.

I have just watched "Chino" and I loved it. The acting is brilliant, the characters are well defined, there is depth and humor, and excellent camera work. The landscapes are magnificent. I didn't find this film boring at all. On the contrary, it seemed a bit short. This film is an important achievement. It has style and beauty. I recommend it to anyone who is not looking only for incessant screams and shooting in Westerns, but for something deeper and broader.

Oddly, no one person either here or elsewhere on the 'net gushed as I will, about the great shots of the horses, as well as the affectionate tone of Valdez's relationship with the horses. I enjoyed the film, was startled when I learned it was filmed in Almera, Spain (for a fistfull fewer dollars). I was convinced it was in Arizona or even the California Hills, scene of so many westerns.

I will pass over my opinion of the story and cast except to say that it was oddly convincing. I even thought that those Spaniards playing Cheyenne were actually Cheyenne. The electricity between Bronson and Mrs. Bronson was palpable, showing that there was a good marriage behind the cameras.

But, the scenes of the horses! Where do you see these scenes anywhere, especially in one place?
1) A head stallion driving off weaker or younger horses with his aggressive posture and biting mouth?
2) The full on running of a herd of horses in open pasture? (I was wondering what these breeds were, and I suspect both arabs and andulusians, but what doI know about spanish horses?)
3) the charming and entirely true scene of Valdez getting on top of the horse that bit him, and Valdez saying over and over, "I guess that horse and me just don't like eac other."
4) The absolutely georgeous stallion making his cameos
5) The birthing of the foal and the cute part it played
6) The bareback riding of the Indians and their charge toward Chino
7) The way the boy, or his stand in, rode Black, the horse that Chino gave him at the end of the film
8) The great scene of Chino driving some horses to the town. THAT was a difficult scene to shoot, is very rare in our day, and whoever the wrangler was that did that was really competent.

I have long been a Charles Bronson fan. this is one of the best westerns I have watched & at 76 years old I have watched a lot. no glitz & glamour in this one, just a realistic old west masterpiece.

This is not the usual Bronson fare.

There are several threads running throught this movie.

The conclusion is satisfying in an existential way, but nearly all the threads are left at loose ends.

Charles Bronson is always great. Jill Ireland is always beautiful. However, this movie has a dull, uninspired story line. There is little to no redeeming value. No happiness. The visual is dark, and very hard to see, all the way through. If this movie was digitally restored, it must have been a box of ashes before. Watch if you want. You'll need glasses afterwards.

The copy of Chino produced by Synergy Entertainment is a fuzzy DVD-R that appears to have been cut off a video tape. Good movie, but you are wasting your money if you purchase the Synergy copy.
