Waiting in vain
10 November 2012 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Ned Carter (Donal O'Brien) is waiting with a bunch of guests for Mary Belle, his bride. When they are noticing that they are exactly 13 people at the table, an unlucky number, some think it's an evil omen. And indeed, when the stagecoach arrives, the bride has been murdered. After the marriage is canceled, some of the 13 men are killed, others are investigating the case, assuming there is a connexion between the killings and stolen gold from the civil war days.

'Il tredicesimo e sempre Giuda' (literally: 'The 13th is always Judas') is a western with a crime investigation story, yet neither a particularly good western nor a thriller with really interesting characters. You need a clever script for this kind of genre crossover, but this just drags on and on. Voted 3 of 10.
