Blood Money

Blood Money (or The Stranger and the Gunfighter) is a kung fu spaghetti western starring Lee Van Cleef. I fell asleep towards the end, which is a shame because it's a Lee Van Cleef film. Lee Van Cleef is fun, as always, and reviews are positive. I'll watch it again when I can pay better attention. It's directed by Antonio Margheriti. has 2 reviews: This one says it's "a mixed bag. It's far from great, but Alejandro Ulloa's photography of the Almeria locations give the film a paramount look and thanks to a script that keeps things moving and a couple of good jokes it's surprisingly entertaining." This one concludes, "The Stranger and The Gunfighter is really great because it doesnt take itself too seriously. Lee Van Cleef is especially funny in the film which is a nice change from his roles as the villains and stoic characters in his earlier spaghetti westerns." Fistful of Pasta says, "Zero artistic content here folks, and if you like your spags serious, by all means avoid this one like the plague. But if you like รข€˜em so bad they're good, check it out. This one is actually so funny you can watch it more than once. I loved this one."
