Exciting western with some comedy,
This review is from: Bandolero [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Bandolero! is a very good western with a great cast and exciting action. Starring James Stewart and Dean Martin as Mace and Dee Bishop, it tells the story of these two outlaw brothers running from a sheriff and his posse into Mexico. The Bishop gang rides into Bandolero country, bandit country. Obviously, the posse must follow.
This cast is exceptional for a western. Besides Stewart and Martin, there is George Kennedy, Raquel Welch, Andrew Prine, Harry Carey, Rudy Diaz, Denver Pyle, and even Dub Taylor in one scene. Welch's Spanish accent drifts in and out, but she is still pretty good. Stewart and Martin are perfect as brothers reunited in southern Texas. Much of this movie was filmed at John Wayne's Alamo Village, which is most apparent in the final battle between the Bishops and the banditos. This movie is very exciting with good action and a catchy musical score. As pointed out by other reviews, this was obviously influenced by spaghetti westerns. The video isn't of the best quality, but still worthwhile. I hope this is put on DVD soon. Don't miss!
