From E.B. Clucher (Enzo Barboni), the director of They Call Me Trinity, Trinity is STILL My Name, Man of the East and Crime Busters - The Unholy Four (Ciakmull - L'uomo della vendetta) stars Leonard Mann (Cut and Run) and the great Woody Strode (Spartacus, The Professionals). Mann plays an amnesiac, Chuck Mool, who escapes from prison with three other inmates, making his way to his hometown to find out the truth about his identity. While in town he finds out he has a reputation as a fast gun and that the town is in the midst of a power struggle between two wealthy ranchers, one of whom apparently is his father. The Unholy Four are Mann, Strode, Peter Martell (Death Walks at Midnight) and George Eastman (Boot Hill) billed here under his real name Luca Montefiori. Featuring a rousing and haunting score by Riz Ortolani (Day of Anger, The Violent Four).

THE UNHOLY FOUR looks great here in Blu-Ray. The night scenes seem to be imbued with a touch of Mario Bava gel lighting style and director Enzo Barboni kind of mimics older directors like Sidney J Furie or maybe Hitchcock with some neat gimmicky camera work throughout. The extreme close-up shots of rifles and revolvers going thru their mechanical motions during an ambush seem to make the action that much more intense. UNHOLY also has one of the best saloon brawls of any western I've ever seen, complete with a kind of Jackie Chan vibe to the proceedings. Woody Strode is the American ringer in this spagwest and tho he only speaks about ten words (not counting the church choir audition) he has great presence here. As for the audio...Italian with English subs or English dubbing. Both good. Take your pick.
On the downside, I didn't care overmuch for the musical score as it seems to be styled after Hollywood movies instead of what you might expect from a spaghetti western. Not terrible but no Ennio Morricone either. Also, the only bonus materials on tap were trailers from 2 (excellent) examples of the genre, NAVAJO JOE and SABATA.
Bottom line here is that this movie isn't in A FISTFULL OF DOLLARS league but it does have well filmed action scenes, a high body count and some attractive females. I also appreciate studios that produce a quality product worth purchasing & that's why I give this film 5 stars. Soooo..If you & your friends are tired of watching THE SEARCHERS on TCM for the 100th time, give this movie a shot. Your guests will appreciate it.
Some Blu macaroni combat in the future would be sweet as well.
