Two Spaghetti Western Masterpieces For One Incredible Low Price!

KEOMA
- Runtime:101 min - Franco Nero is KEOMA, a half-breed gunfighter weary of killing as a way of life. But when he returns to his troubled childhood home, Keoma is caught in a savage battle between innocent settlers, sadistic bandits and his vengeful half-brothers. In a wasteland gone mad with rage and pain, can one man massacre his way to redemption? Woody Strode (ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST), William Berger (DJANGO STRIKES AGAIN) and Olga Karlatos (ZOMBIE) co-star in this one-of-a-kind classic that fans and critics consider to be one of the greatest Spaghetti Westerns of all time.

THE GRAND DUEL (AKA THE BIG SHOWDOWN) - Runtime: 94 min - Also known as Il Grande Duello, this classic Spaghetti Western features Lee Van Cleef in the role of a tough, gun-slinging sheriff out to defend a young cowboy accused of murder. Dressed in characteristic all-black, he must fend off the avenging Saxon brothers (who, naturally, drape themselves entirely in white). Action-packed with wild shoot-outs, riotous chase scenes and a fantastic score by composer Luis Enrique Bacalov (who would later be enlisted by longtime fan Quentin Tarantino to create film music for his work), this gritty gem remains a favorite among fans of the genre.

The print used for the transfer is titled "The Big Showdown". Like many spaghetti westerns The Grand Duel has many titles. I think the first time I saw it on VHS it was called "Storm Rider".

This version is longer than the previously released Wild East DVD. While I have not done a complete side by side comparison, I did notice a scene on the blu-ray that I have often seen in the trailer, but never in the actual film on DVD; the scene where the dying old man wipes his bloody hand on Adam Saxon. I am sure there are many more.

The presentation on this blu-ray far exceeded my expectations. Admittedly I was worried at first as the background for the blu-ray menu showed an intentionally scratchy washed out print.

The print is pristine and blemish free. It looks to be pulled from the original negative and not a interpositive based version as there are subtle jumps occasionally in between cuts. As an original negative is literally glued together between cuts, over time the print will reveal these "bumps". Not a huge deal.

Color is solid throughout, and film grain is well defined without being distracting. Details are are very sharp on the extreme close ups.

The audio is nothing spectacular, but is clear. There are some serious sync issues. For example in the scene where LVC spins around and says "I never kill for money", was out of sync, which was not a problem in the Wild East version. These type of sync issues are probably in 50% of the movie, and seem to occur in large chunks of run time. I know Spaghetti Westerns are known for their dubbing, but the English should match! Bummer.

Aside from the audio sync issues, I feel it is a great disc. I popped in the Wild East DVD afterwards and found it to be unwatchable (but I am a Blu-ray snob).

These are not legendary Spaghetti Westerns...but very good ones and this BR disc contains two very good prints at a tremendously low price which makes this a solid 4 star value in my book. If you are a fan of Lee Van Cleef or Franco Nero or Spaghetti Westerns (see copycat Sergio Leone) this double bill will reward you with some good action, cringe inducing moments and overall a reasonable time. I would say only order this AFTER you check out The Man with No Name Trilogy (A Fistful of Dollars / For a Few Dollars More / The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly) [Blu-ray]Once Upon a Time in the West [Blu-ray] as all four of those movies are highy recommended!

Mostly I wanted to inform the curious that this budget priced twofer is solid.

The package is pretty bare-bones but you are getting two great movies. The Grand Duel is the highlight of the two. They seem to have cleaned up both movies and The Grand Duel is the better looking one. Keoma looks good, but not great. The sound quality isn't great on either but that is forgivable since its a Mill Creek disc and were lucky that they even put these movies out in such a good quality.

The Grand Duel is a great spaghetti western giving Lee Van Cleef the chance to play the good guy, which he excels at. It also feature a pretty good mystery as the background plot of the movie which is predictable but still very fun.

Keoma is a very different kind of western. The film is far more Italian, in that it stay on track with a narrative, but is consistently entering dreamlike sequences where you don't know what is actually happening. The imagery in the film is also clearly quasi religious for almost no real reason. It is a real fun film, where the only problem is that Franco Nero is supposed to be part native american and that is just truly hard to buy.

The genre may have been winding down in 1972, but Giancarlo Santi's The Grand Duel aka The Big Showdown aka Hell's Fighters is a superior serving of spaghetti that's a lot of fun. Lee Van Cleef is on great form as the ex-marshal acting as unlikely protector for Alberto Dentice's escaped killer ("He doesn't look like a murderer." "The thing is, my dear, what matters is that he kills like one."), determined to bring him back to the town whose corrupt patriarch he's been convicted of murdering despite the best efforts of a slew of scuzzy competing bounty hunters. Naturally Dentice (billed here as Peter O'Brien) is innocent, framed by the three corrupt Saxon brothers who run the town - fey white-clad and pockmarked Adam (Klaus Grunberg), angry sheriff Eli (Marc Mazza) and the smoothly ambitious new patriarch David (Horst Frank), who sees the town and Dentice's silver mine as the key to bigger things because "In a violent country, he who seizes today controls tomorrow." Only Eli seems bothered about finding out who really killed their father, but he's just as content as the others to get rid of both Dentice and Van Cleef, despite the latter being the only one who really knows who fired the fatal shot.

In his customary black attire, Van Cleef's bastard with a star on his chest is the kind of unflappable laidback anti-hero who just hangs his travelling bag on a bounty hunter's gun when facing him down. By contrast Dentice is the more athletic and occasionally intense of the two, who only have their apparent incorruptibility in common - one is too old to sell himself, the other is too young.
