A spaghetti western? Filmed in Shanghai? That’s apparently what Shangdown: The Way Of The Spur is. Filmed completely in Shanghai and directed by Jakob Montrasio, it’s calling itself a gritty western with an Asian twist. The trailer is above.
In case watching that didn’t quench your thirst for answers about this insane sounding movie, the plot goes thusly:
The movie follows Italian cowboy and martial artist Guerino (Christian Bachini) as he searches for his missing sister in a culturally alien Shanghai. With the help of Jiekai (Daddy Chang), a Chinese man whose girlfriend has also gone missing, Guerino wages a one-man war against Shanghai’s biggest crime lord and his multitude of goons, following his one and only rule: kick first and ask questions later.
Sounds like good, bad, ugly fun.
