  1. Ethan's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    This is the most badass spaghetti western Lee Van Cleef made outside of the two films he did with Sergio Leone.

  2. Jason's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Seeing Death Rides a Horse on 35mm has proven to be a lesson in the sacred and the profane. Would seem to reflect poorly on you were you to seek to hold it up as some gilded work of high art. Yet I am prepared to do something close to that. That it is shot and cut masterfully should be clear. There is a moment, when John Phillip Law is burried in the dirt up to his head, that it even struck me as something more.

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Entretenido spaghetti sobre cómplices temporales a propósito de una venganza a fin. Además de su historia, aquí los vengadores son lo mejor del filme. Lástima que no suceda lo mismo con los enemigos, quienes a pesar de ser varios, no poseen el suficiente atractivo. Cada encuentro (que se torna emocionante) termina con un sabor a decepción. Estos caen cual peones, dignos de sobrevaloración.

  4. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    A little underwhelming considering how it starts off - one can sense that Petroni & co. had a few great ideas but they struggle to flesh them out.

  5. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Could have been a brilliant spaghetti western, but John Philip Law cracks more than once. It's still pretty good genre shit though.

  6. Kentel's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    The good : Lee Van Cleef The bad : the storyline, the actors (a special mention to John Philip Law, catastrophical), the screenplay, the dialogues, the music, everything.

  7. Ilya Nikolaev's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Decent traditional spagetti-western. Not much outstanding though.

  8. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Three stars for a workmanlike western. Four stars for Morricone's sublimely weird score.

  9. SeventiesSinema's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Despite many clunky, meandering scenes (approximately 75% of the movie), there are many moments at the beginning and a few later on (like the one highlighted in the accompanying image) when Morricone's mastery and Lee Van Cleef's presence epitomize macho, badass cool.

  10. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Routine Spaghetti Western. Roger Ebert's 1969 review includes this canny observation: "Van Cleef's face, in closeup, has the lean, hardened, embittered expression of a man who has either (a) been pursuing his lonely vengeance across the plains of the West for 30 years, or (b) realizes he will be making spaghetti Westerns the rest of his life."

  11. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    among the best spaghetti westerns....Ennio Morricone's score is baffling (in a good way) and Lee Van Cleef is, as always, perfect

  12. Silenzio's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    One of the best revenge spaghetti westerns and must see film for fans of Van Cleef. Wonderful score from Morricone which was reused superbly in Kill Bill (Vol 1)

  13. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Death Rides a Horse

    Superior spaghetti western from director Giulio Petroni features another iconic performance from B-movie star Lee Van Cleef. Stylishly shot with a compelling story and another great western score by Ennio Morricone. Not any kind of masterpiece, but great entertainment for spaghetti western fans.
