The Mercenary (1968)

Friday 21st April 2017

Blending bullet-sprayed action with waggish dialogue, and a simply stunning Ennio Morricone & Bruno Nicolai score, The Mercenary proudly stands at the top of the Zapata Western subgenre; a lip-smacking, gorgeously lensed treat finally available on DVD and Blu-ray on UK shores from 1st May 2017 thanks to 88 Films.

A greedy Polish mercenary aids a mine worker and a peasent girl as they lead a revolution against the opressive Mexican Government and Army, while being pursued by an American rival. According to Quentin Tarantino, Sergio Corbucci is one of the greatest Western directors of all time. And after watching the Italian auteur's barnstorming 1968 masterpiece The Mercenary, you'll be hard pressed to disagree.

Django icon Franco Nero stars as The Polak; a laid-back gun-for-hire who agrees to help a wannabe revolutionary (Tony Musante, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage) put his plans into practice. Hot on their trail, however, is the wickedly camp Curly (Jack Palance, twenty-three years before his identically named, Oscar-winning turn in City Slickers) who's determined to snag a share of their ever increasing booty.
