Fabulous Spaghetti Western Review©

Released: 1970
Rating: NR (Not Rated)
Length: 2 hrs 0 min
Genre: Western
Starring: Tomas Milian, Franco Nero, Jack Palance, Fernando Rey, Karin Schubert
Directed by: Sergio Corbucci
Composer: Ennio Morricone
Very similar to another western called Run Man Run in that both are directed by men named Sergio (a popular name in Italy indeed), they both star Tomas Milian, are centered around the Mexican Revolution and a treasure of gold and a rebel leader/poet/professor. However, Companeros features Jack Palance as a sadistic pot smoking villain, so, there's that.

I should say something about how excellent it was now. It was excellent indeed.

Update: You know what, now that I think about it I can't remember if Jack Palance was a pot smoking villain in this movie or The Professionals. Its been about 9 months since I've seen both movies.

Update update:Phew. Ok, I just did a little Googling. It was this one.

8 out of 10 (Very, very good)
