In fact, after first showing up in a couple of brief scenes in the movie's first few minutes, the character doesn't appear again until almost an hour has passed! MIKE'S COUCH-TIME MOVIE REVIEW WHITE COMANCHE. Get out your credit card right now; you won't be disappointed.
The film also suffers from a jazz influenced musical score, but, hey, that's the least of its problems. |, January 27, 2005 Recommended for Shatner fans. I've been a fan of the franchise most of my life.
One thing though, a leprechaun looks more like a half-breed than Shatner does. The former, Johnny Moon, holds up in a town waiting for a showdown with the latter, Notah. Shatner is always entertaining but the sound and picture quality of this is pretty bad. This would not be so much of a problem if Notah were a law abiding citizen, but Johnny has embraced the white side of his heritage while his twin has opted to stay with the Comanche tribe, and he wishes to stir up trouble almost daily. Let's try to list it: 1) Awesome script.
Besides the menace of Notah, the three are caught between the factions of a range war. Fun western filmed in fascist-era Spain. | and to receive email from Rotten Tomatoes and Fandango. Not up to par for the flow of the plot and the acting ability of the cast. I always liked this little stinker. Your AMC Ticket Confirmation# can be found in your order confirmation email. Reviewed in the United States on December 25, 2008. After that , Johnny saves a damsel in distress (Rosanna Yanni) but she thinks that Johnny is Notah who formerly attacked to her . Out of the league of Shatner's "pro" work, or of real westerns for that matter. Let's try to list it: 1) Awesome script.
From horses who prance and dance little jigs in otherwise serious scenes, to Notah leading his band of Comanches while continuing to ride a western saddle, to buzzards that sound suspiciously like amplified crows, this whole thing might be somewhat entertaining if only the actors didn't take themselves so seriously. One sequence uses music that invokes the image of a chase scene in an old comedy, and another would have been appropriate for late 60's crime drama set in a big city. 6) Shatner's Texas accent vacillates between Sacramento and Belfast Ireland. White Comanche features William Shatner (Capt. 3.9 out of 5. One lives as an off-the-rails on the warpath Indian chief. Some Spanish actors apparently redubbed from American stand-ins. Hilariously bad western with Shatner playing the dual "good twin/bad twin" roles. This was made in Spain during his Star Trek years (hey, it seemed to have worked for Eastwood before him!). But that wouldn't allow for the dubious necessity of having a plot where the cultures clash and the other brother gets to fall in love with the saloon girl his crazed brother earlier raped after leading an attack on the stage coach she was a passenger in. Out of the league of Shatner's "pro" work, or of real westerns for that matter. (The sheriff had better not interfere while I fight with myself.) Before we have the final showdown between the brothers, we are treated to a range war between the two richest men in the territory–Grimes and General Garcia.

It's just one of the many nuggets that make this sofa-time well spent. Yes, we are supposed to believe that William Shatner of all people is half white man and half native American, and nothing in Shatner's bag of overstated expressions and mannerisms is going to help much in the matter. The white Commanche is actually identical twin brothers played by William Shatner, one a ruthless peyote ingesting warrior chief who leads his followers into believing there will be a revival of there fortunes, and the other who tries to fit in with both cultures, but who has to deal with the consequences of his crazy brother and finally in the end is forced with the inevitable showdown. Spanish movie made Paella Western that contains thrills , action and lots of gratuitous gunplay . While there, he befriends (sort of) the sheriff played by Joseph Cotton and romances a saloon girl (Rosanna Yanni).
Action-packed Tortilla Western with Shatner & Cotton, but lousy score, Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2016. The percentage of users who rated this 3.5 stars or higher. 4) A couple of pompous Omega-Glory style speeches delivered by Shatner standing on a mountain, with Sun records tape echo. Two ends of the spectrum, but for whatever reason, he remained watchable just the same. Tortilla or Paella Western (no Spaghetti) filmed in Spain and written/directed by Jose Briz.

It apparently was a throw-away, purely for the foreign market (note the excessive violence). I guess "White Comanche" interested me for its fascinating history (made during the hiatus of Star Trek, and that Shatner tried to get NBC to purchase it for television) and Shatner's involvement more than anything. 10) Shatner, all posing and dramatic pauses, on screen for the whole blasted thing - Friends, our family hasn't laughed so hard since we saw Airplane for the first time. Funny, but it seemed to me that Notah looked about ten years younger than Johnny. Don’t worry, it won’t take long. However, despite what the title may suggest, the movie isn't really about the white Comanche character. The film focuses more on the second brother, and if there is any criticism that would be where it should start, as the first one, the drugged out warrior seems to be the more interesting subject. It takes real focus to get through it. What does it offer the howler devotee? It apparently was a throw-away, purely for the foreign market (note the excessive violence). 3) Horseback riding to mood music from a Vegas floor-show band. The former, Johnny Moon, holds up in a town waiting for a showdown with the latter, Notah. MST 3000 and Ed Wood revivals prove there is a market for astoundingly bad movies, and that is where this one should be categorized. This bizarre Spanish-made Western plays like a bad Star Trek episode. It should be screened more for it's memorable acting and writing. The movie is more about the white Comanache's twin brother instead. Its not brilliant film or bad film, its predictable , but ok!
