Bandidos

Director: Massimo Dallamano

Year: 1967

A pretty good western; camera work excellent, with some shots being actually brilliant.

There is one scene in particular that is an absolute masterpiece where some bandidos set up an ambush in a bar. Lots of interesting camera angles, including one from the inside of a sombrero.

Though the movie is quite good, it doesn’t quite gel. This is probably because the lead actors never seem to be able to bring the sort of on-screen charisma necessary to make the film truly great, though Enrico Maria Salerno comes very close. Still, definitely worth a look, particularly for fans of the genre. Here is the trailer, which is very cool.
