365 Movies Day #85 "My Name is Trinity"

Also known as "They Call Me Trinity", this film is a comical take on the western in the same vein as "The Three Amigos" and "Blazing Saddles". You can actually see where both films borrow from "Trinity". Starring Terence Hill as Trinity, a lazy vagabond who also happens to be so good with a pistol he seems to have walked out of an anime episode. When he runs into his horse thief brother and quintessential brute, Bambino, played by Bud Spencer, the fun begins.

The two join forces to thwart a horse barren and a Mexican outlaw to protect a group of Mormon settlers on the high plains. Fight scenes that rival the keystone cops. Comic timing and dialogue that will leave you chuckling and all without losing the essence of the Western. Hats off to Italian director, Enzo Barboni, for creating one of the best westerns I've seen.
