I saw this TV movie on a UK TV channel, where it was called DOC WEST'S CHALLENGE and split into two parts over two consecutive nights. The film is of interest to spaghetti westerns for marking the return of popular spaghetti western actor Terence Hill to the genre, some decades since he was last famed around the world for his comedy westerns.I never really warmed to Hill as an actor, much preferring his sparring partner Bud Spencer, although the sad news is that Spencer doesn't return for whatever reason here. Instead, he's replaced with lookalike Paul Sorvino, who I admit does an excellent job of playing the likable town sheriff. The story is a straightforward and dare I say it rather clichéd one. Hill plays a card sharp who once happened to be a surgeon, until alcoholism caused the death of one of his patients. You can work out the storyline from there, except to say that there are the usual criminal bad guys to be taken care of and a little romance along the way.The worst thing about DOC WEST'S CHALLENGE is the family-friendly rating and feel, which has much in common with the usual horrid American TV movies. Still, the Italian influence makes this one to watch, and the filming locations - in New Mexico - are spot on. Plus, Hill is a delight to watch. He's aged very well (much like fellow western actor Franco Nero), and his character is warm and charismatic throughout. A fitting swansong for the star, then.
Chasing some bandits, a mysterious man who drinks tea (Terence Hill), not alcohol, comes to Holy Sand, New Mexico, where he provokes the ire of delinquents (e.g. Alessio Di Clemente), the friendship of the Sheriff (Paul Sorvino), the romantic desires of a woman (Clare Carey) and the respect of the citizens in general.\"Doc West\" was released to TV in 2009 and has a sequel, \"Triggerman,\" released the same year (actually they're two parts of the same 'mini-series'). These movies marked the return of Terence Hill to the Western genre after fifteen years. He had (and has) movie-star good looks and was known for Spaghetti Westerns in the 60s-70s, like \"God Forgives... I don't\" (1967), \"Django, Prepare a Coffin\" (1968), \"Boot Hill\" (1969) and the Trinity flicks. I suppose you could call him the Euro version of Clint Eastwood, but not really since he never attained Eastwood's fame and clout. His voice was dubbed in all those old Westerns due to his thick accent, but here you can finally hear his real voice.Being a TV Western, \"Doc West\" lacks the technical proficiency of Sergio Leone's \"My Name is Nobody\" (1973) and has a few cartoonish CGI elements (the snake, the fire, etc.), but it's certainly watchable, has a great Western town set, plus additional glorious Southwestern locations. The story is interesting enough, but it could've been more compelling with a rewrite or two. It's the likableness of the protagonists and the warmhearted tone where the movie shines. Sorvino as the Sheriff basically takes Bud Spencer's role as Terence's burly sidekick.The movie runs 1 hour, 37 minutes and was shot at Bonanza Creek, Santa Fe, New Mexico.GRADE: B-

While Robot Carnival was popular enough to get a Bluray release, Neo Tokyo only got a limited DVD release. Then it fell into obscurity. I don't understand why--I think both of these movies were great.
