    Franco Nero is the actor most closely associated with the Django spaghetti westerns, but it's Glenn Saxon who stars in Django Shoots First. Actually, Saxon plays the son of famed gunslinger Django. Inheriting half of a dirty little frontier town, Django Jr. can't imagine that anyone would want this hellhole. But someone does: Django Sr's unsavory (and very funny) ex-partner Fernando Sancho. Played mostly for laughs, Django Shoots First is one of the more frolicsome entries in this long-running series. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

    Includes:Bad Cop Chronicles #1: Confessions of a Police Captain (1971) Crime Boss (1972), MPAA Rating: PG Il Cittadino si Ribella (1974) Revolver (1975) Death Rage (1976), MPAA Rating: R Bad Cop Chronicles #1: Confessions of a Police Captain A mild-mannered police commissioner (Martin Balsam) is frustrated at every attempt to capture a political crimelord with legal means, so he is forced to turn to vigilante justice to get his man. ~ John Bush, All Movie Guide Crime Boss In this Italian crime drama, a new Don takes over a Mafia family and finds himself fighting for his life. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide Il Cittadino si Ribella When the police cannot prosecute heinous crimes effectively, some very brave men will do their jobs for them, this film seems to say. Carlo (Franco Nero) gets in the way of a group of crooks who are trying to rob a bank, and they mutilate him horribly for his trouble. When the police cannot quite manage to find these thugs, Carlo goes after them himself. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide Revolver The luridly titled Italian/French/German thriller Blood in the Streets went into production under the more restrained cognomen The Revolver. Oliver Reed plays a prison official whose wife is kidnapped. The price for her return is the release of incarcerated criminal Fabio Testi. When it becomes obvious that Testi's former cohorts plan to murder him once he's set free, Reed and Testi team up to foil the baddies. Blood in the Streets poses as an anti-gun tract, but its plot is still resolved by Oliver Reed wielding a weapon. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Death Rage In this actioner, a retired assassin straps on his old gun and goes out for vengeance against his brother's killer. The mobsters who hired him send him to Naples where the hapless hit man soon discovers that he has been set up. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

    Includes:White Comanche (1967) E Dio disse a Caino (1969) Mio Nome È Shanghai Joe (1972) Four of the Apocalypse (1975) Keoma (1976) White Comanche In this film, the twin sons of a white man and an Indian woman must struggle to overcome both their sibling rivalry and their conflicting identities. ~ Iotis Erlewine, All Movie Guide E Dio disse a Caino Don't let the title mislead you, this film doesn't come from the Bible Belt; it's actually a western where a trigger-happy quickdraw guy has to draw upon all his talent just to stay alive. ~ All Movie Guide Mio Nome È Shanghai Joe Director Mario Caiano, best known for the gorgeous horror film Amanti d'Oltretomba, made eleven Westerns in his career, but none as strange as this one. Perhaps it might help some to recall that the TV-series Kung Fu was enjoying great popularity at around the same time employing a similar East-meets-West theme. This film is much more grim and bloody, however, as it tells the tale of a Chinese man (Chen Lee) who travels to San Francisco in 1882. Looking for a better life, all he finds is scum -- racists, perverts, slavers, greedy conmen and mercenaries. Naturally, the gentle mystic must fight to find inner peace. Lee's major weapon -- aside from knives and lethal yo-yos -- is a devastating punch that rams all the way through his opponents' bodies. But that isn't the half of it. A cardshark gets his eyes gouged out in revolting detail, people are beaten to bloody pulp, and the villain of the piece (Klaus Kinski in a fascinating performance) is Scalper Jack, a mincing, sadistic bounty-hunter who tortures and skins his victims alive. A depressing and violent film, this exercise in bloodletting is powerful stuff and well-acted by a veteran cast including Giacomo Rossi Stuart, Claudio Undari and Gordon Mitchell, who also appeared in Caiano's Erik IL Vichingo. Adalberto Albertini made an unfortunate comic sequel the following year with Kinski (in a different role) and Lee. ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide Four of the Apocalypse A vain gambler (Fabio Testi), a pregnant prostitute (Lynne Frederick), a bumbling alcoholic (Michael J. Pollard) and a man who claims to see ghosts (Harry Baird) become unlikely traveling companions in this unusual spaghetti Western from notorious Italian horror director Lucio Fulci. The only survivors of a frontier-town massacre staged to rid the once-lawful town of its overpowering criminal element, the quartet ride the Western trail in a last-ditch bid to reach the next populated area and get back on their feet. Soon drawing the attention of a trigger-happy bandit named Chaco (Tomas Milian), the four cautiously accept him into the fold when Chaco displays a remarkable talent for hunting. When their newfound friend tortures the foursome and leaves them for dead after feeding them hallucinogens, the remaining survivors' desperate bid for survival leads them to take shelter in a ramshackle mining town inhabited only by men of questionable honor. As the birth of her child draws closer, prostitute Bunny (Frederick) looks to suave gambler Stubby (Testi) for the love and support to bring her child into the world. Though the men of the town reluctantly band together to aid Bunny in the birth of her baby, Stubby finds himself torn between the prospect of fatherhood and his unquenchable thirst for revenge against the supremely evil Chaco. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Keoma Half-breed Keoma (Franco Nero) returns to his border hometown after service in the Civil War and finds it under the control of Caldwell (Donald O'Brien), an ex-Confederate raider, and his vicious gang of thugs. To make matters worse, Keoma's three half-brothers have joined forces with Caldwell, and make it painfully clear that his return is an unwelcome one. Determined to break Caldwell and his brothers' grip on the town, Keoma partners with his father's former ranch hand (Woody Strode) to exact violent revenge. ~ Paul Gaita, All Movie Guide
