Unusual story for the genre
15 March 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

In the beginning of "Garringo", we see a young boy named Johnny whose father is shot by soldiers. Many years later, he learns how to shoot and puts it to bad use: he kills any army officer he meets for blind revenge. The colonel of the local garrison asks lieutenant Garringo (Anthony Steffen) to find out who the killer is and put an end to this. This movie's subtitle was "I morti non si contano" (The dead cannot be counted) for a good reason, as Garringo does his job in a brutal way, never hesitating to kill. "Garringo" has an interesting pair of characters: on one hand Johnny the killer (Peter Lee Lawrence) who has sympathetic sides like his feelings for Julia, a girl he grew up with, on the other hand Garringo, the man of the law, who is quite merciless. This characterization evokes ambivalent feelings in the audience. Thus "Garringo" becomes an interesting movie in particular for those fans who are well familiar with the stereotypes and are looking for something a bit unusual, not following the familiar formula.
