As we delve further into Shaw Brothers films and Spaghetti Western movies, Patsy the Angry Nerd and I realize that we are still just barely scratching the surface. Our films this episode are Shaolin Rescuers (aka Avenging Warriors of Shaolin) from 1979, and the Spaghetti Western, God Forgives…I Don’t! from 1967.
God Forgives…I Don’t! is the first teaming of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer; a co-starring relationship that the two would have for several years, as their on-screen chemistry is so amazing! After a train is robbed of its payroll, a card-shark and insurance investigator team up to retrieve the money from the evil bandits who keep it hidden at a secret location near the Mexican border. We are definitely looking forward to discussing more films that this silver screen team appears in!
Shaolin Rescuers concerns two friends who long to leave their humdrum lives and become heroes. They get embroiled in a battle with a WuTan warlord and his squad of villains, while being helped by a Kung Fu student, and a rebel. Of the Venom Mob films we’ve covered so far, this is perhaps the most action-packed movie we’ve seen! Amazing stunts, acrobatics and martial arts fights make this one definitely worth seeking out!
