(aka: THEY CALL ME TRINITY)
I have to admit I'm not one for comedy westerns but this one wasactually funny in parts. It's almost as funny as SUPPORT YOUR LOCALSHERIFF (1971) and I would almost consider it a welcome addition to myDVD collection were it not for the fact that the current Direct SourceMedia DVD weren't so awful.
Trinity (Terence Hill) a dirty, dusty drifter-turned bounty-huntercomes to town to pay a visit to his horse-thieving half-brother Bambino(Bud Spencer) who's pretending to be the real sheriff. Bambino'slooking for the best way to rustle some of the Colonel's horses beforehe leaves and he's not interested in letting Trinity cut in. In themeantime, the Colonel (Farley Granger) is doing some plotting of hisown, not only to get rid of Bambino but also to displace some Mormonswho are settling on some land he wants for his own cattle.
The fights, the stunts and the gunplay Trinity and Bambino play on theColonel's men is hilarious. I like it when Bambino uses the bottom ofhis fist to hit the bad guy's on the top of the head. And the endingfist fight scene at the Mormon's camp cracks me up. No wonder this filmmade Hill and Spencer popular in Europe.
Like I said, the DVD is a travesty with a transfer that's watchable butlooks like it was lifted from a VHS source. The print itself thetransfer was taken from is pretty grainy with bad splices and anaudible hum in the soundtrack. It deserves a failing grade.
The TRINITY series needs the Anchor Bay DVD treatment, really bad.Since these Euro westerns were so popular, I'm surprised they haven'tsecured the rights to it yet.

(aka: THEY CALL ME TRINITY)
just bought this and the sequel on dvd. every time i see a new american market copy of this movie the picture and sound just get worse. that no one has given this film the treatment it deserves... original sound/language, subtitle options, dubbed version option, letterboxing, restored print and sound, etc... makes a thoughtful person wonder.
my sometimes too protective mother let me watch this movie as a kid and watching it now i wonder why. i think she was a sucker for sexy leads. it embodies everything that is/was deemed tasteless by those who would know and really don't. it's the long gone pre pc violence of bugs bunny cartoons, three stooges dysfunction with a twist of simpsons atheism. it begs no qualitative analyses of point or moral only craft. and craftwise it's glorious. cheap, direct, clever and simple. somehow it all adds up to something more than meaningless debate on harmful vs. harmless, not to mention it's hella funny.
i like it all from the burt bacarachish neil diamondish theme song to the dubious decision to dub. (and by the way this film is very well dubbed. if you don't feel so i'm guessing you haven't watched many asian films.)
clucher's film is not just a great western it's a great movie period. like it's protagonist it's carefree, dirty (really dirty), and decent. if i was unbiased i'd give this movie a 7.5 or 8 out of 10. but this movie sits close to my heart. especially when enduring the endless flow of garbage at todays cineplexes. 10 out of 10.

I am Italian and I have seen many spaghetti-western productions in my life. This movie is by far the best ever produced. The sequel is comparatively poor and not recommended. The two main characters work astoundingly well together and play at their fullest potential. A special mention to the "Mayor", for once a very likable "bad guy", and its irony. The movie is much stronger in the first half when it builds up tension and expectations. The first few minutes when Trinità is eating beans are simply legendary. The ending is. on the opposite of all other movies made by the couple, not really "happy" and I did like it. This movie mixes many ingredients together and the result is a wonderful and tasty juice. Recommended! 9/10
