4.0 out of 5 stars Shane meets Little House on the Prairie, October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Doc West (Widescreen) (DVD)
When I saw this listed in the new releases for Amazon, I thought,WOW, maybe the Spaghetti Western is being resurrected. The film stars Terence Hill who played both Trinity and Nobody co-directing Paul Sorvino and has a music score by Maurizio De Angelis who co wrote many Spaghetti Western scores. Instead of going for the tough, gritty style of the genre, Hill and screen writers Marchello Olivieri and Luca Biglione go for a family oriented look and feel reminiscent of the Television fodder of Little House on the Prairie and the Ponderosa from 'BONANZA'. This is not a bad thing, it just was a surprise. Hill plays the title character who goes from town to town tracking bad guys and playing poker so he can send his winnings back home to the daughter of a woman who died at his hands while performing surgery in an alchoholic stupor. He then gets in the middle of a land war and falls in love with the town widow while struggling with his inner guilt. If it sounds corny, it is. The film reeks of sentimentality but it works , the photography and scenery elevating the film to rousing family entertainment for the modern age. Paul Sorvino shines as the town sheriff whom Hill wins over with his mannerisms. For those expecting a violent oater, leave your six guns at the door and watch a great Euro-actor pull off a western for all ages.
