great movie thats up there with the likes of django, the great silence and a fistful of dollars
An enjoyable Spaghetti Western that hits all the notes you want from a film of the genre. A solid story and a solid performance from Lee Van Cleef make this a genre essential. Recommended for Western fans.
Wow. Despite looking pretty similar to "For a Few Dollars More" and "Death Rides a Horse" at the beginning, the story is not just the usual revenge or money extortion plot. It starts out iffy, with some pretty poor dialogue at the beginning. That all changes when Van Cleef arrives and the plot (and bloodshed) begins. Plenty of good action here, although the overall style imitates Leone and succeeds only partially. That being said, I found the main characters quite interesting, and there is some genuine character development that gets interesting by the end. Unlike Leone, you might not see the ending coming.
one of my fave spaghetti westerns very violent & very bloody.
Great soundtrack, stylishly made (though derivative of Leone), and pretty fun. It has some shortcomings for sure in the writing department, and the lead actor is kind of spotty, but Lee Van Cleef is great.
Day of Anger is well just a great film on all accounts
The bastard son of a brazzer is bullied by the powers that be in a pistol free town. He becomes lunatic gunfighter Lee Van Cleefs protege and they set out to take over the town.
Day of Anger is a spaghetti western that follows a rather straightforward and typical plot, but is elevated by all the great elements of the genre handled in such an entertaining way. The plot here, which is a somewhat routine story, is practically the Hero's Journey in the old west, where an underdog and a misfit named Scott Mary, played by Giuliano Gemma, finds his opportunity to change his life and become a gunslinger when a man named Talby, played by Lee Van Cleef, rides into the town known as Clifton. Scott is "bullied" in Clifton and is treated like an outcast, but things change when Talby shows him compassion and becomes his mentor in a way.
However, as the plot unfolds, it becomes a tale of two mentors and Scott finding revenge but losing his purity. It's seemingly simple, and for the most part it is, but its backed up by some plot twists and Lee Van Cleef and Giuliano Gemma's intriguing partnership. It's always great to see Lee Van Cleef on screen, and he's so cool that anything he touches is elevated a bunch. He's in top form here, and his role is pretty much on the same level as his others (he's always at his best), such as Colonel Mortimer and The Bad. Giuliano Gemma is charismatic and great as a young man who's an underdog and a misfit in the town, and his duo with Lee Van Cleef is awesome. Giuliano also previously played as Ringo in the Ringo movies (A Pistol for Ringo, The Return of Ringo), and his acting skills really show here. Seeing two of the best actors in the genre working together was great. Riz Ortolani's score is notable, and the theme song is one of the best songs I've heard in the genre. It's energetic and catchy, and fits perfectly in the movie.
It's also incredibly entertaining, and I was never bored with its many creative sequences, such as its climax, as well as the scene where Lee Van Cleef duels someone on horseback with rifles. It's memorable and entertaining, and feels like a genuine western movie, but at the same time feels distinctive. This movie ranks among the best of the genre, thanks to its powerhouse cast, its catchy score, and its seemingly simple plot that turns more complex, and is just as entertaining as some of the high ranking westerns in the genre. It's a must see spaghetti western, and should be a lot more popular than it currently is.
Lee van Cleef and Giuliano Gemma are like master and apprentice until Gemma's loyalty to Walter Rilla intervenes--Never Trust Anyone!!
