      Audience Member Could have been a great movie. A good idea that just didn't translate to the screen. It's barely good enough to watch. Decide for yourself, but make sure it's a great quality transfer. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The Shaw Brothers cross over into the Spaghetti Western. Van Cleef is the balls. Great fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member East meets West when a dead Chinaman leaves behind a potential fortune pursued by a band of treasure hunters, including a nephew seeking to maintain the family name. Sometimes lighthearted fare featuring two respected veterans of the Western (Van Cleef) and Martial Arts (Lieh) genres. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review don s Even though I didn't care for the Van Cleef character, this mash up of spaghetti western and kung-fu movie worked for me. Lieh Lo carried the movie, as a young man out to return honor to his family by finding a hidden treasure that they were entrusted with. Worth a look if you can find it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member aka THE STRANGER AND THE GUNFIGHTER Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review dave j Monday, March 17, 2014 (1974) Blood Money/El kárate, el Colt y el impostor DUBBED SPAGHETTI WESTERN/ COMEDY A chop sockey and Spaghetti Western crossover- sort of. Lee Van Cleef as Dakota who's a thief, attempting to break open a safe belonging to a Chinese man who also happens to be a tattoo artist. Within that safe are 4 different kind of doors with a photo of some girls and their rear ends. The last door happens to be the only one Dakota decided to use some explosives. And the Chinese guy ended up getting himself killed as a result. And when the final door was finally open, there was no gold nor money to be found. Dakota still gets arrested, and he is sentenced with noose around his neck. Meanwhile, back in China, on some Chinese Dynasty, the emperor announces an execution of Ho Chiang(Lieh Lo) and his family just because it was his relative, the emperor entrusted some gold bullions with, and upon the other Chinese guy's death back in the US, no gold was ever found, even though it was supposed to be used for some investments in the US. Out of chance, Ho Chiang is given the option to go back tot he US, to track down the gold bullion. He does this but with Dakota's help. One of the major obstacles are the Christian fanatic, which as soon as he hears about it, he immediately wanted to pursue that gold before Ho Chiang get it first. Intriguing premise that kept me glued, even though the comedy routines fall flat. 2.5 out of 4 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
