Here at Bad Transfer we love Chuck Connors. Check out Devon’s review for the Mad Bomber.
I was super excited to view Kill Them All… both because of Connors & Enzo who directed Keoma, Street Law, High Crime, The Inglorious Bastards, A Few Dollars for Django, etc. A total legend in Italy. On top of that the title of the film is brilliant.
This is a Western about a group of Confederates who try to steal a treasure of gold from Union Soldiers in 1864.
Theres a ton of action in this movie. So much so that it borders on ridiculous. I sometimes felt like I was watching a kung fu movie from my youth. Not only did the fight scenes have that vibe with dudes flying all over the place, but the subtitles were way off. I have no idea what translation/dubbing they used for this one. At any rate there is a really great underwater scene toward the end which is really fun to watch. All in all I was sorta disappointed in this film maybe just due to my expectations based on Keoma. Keoma is a top 5 spaghetti Western in my book. (NW)
