Trivia

The graphic violent content of the film led the film to be banned in several countries, and it was rejected by the UK until 1993. It was not rated in the USA. See more »

Goofs

With the exception of a sawn-off shotgun used by one of Jackson's men and Django's machine gun (which appears to be a fictional model inspired by the Montigny mitrailleuse and the Maxim gun), the firearms shown throughout the film are historically inaccurate for a film set in the years immediately following the American Civil War. These weapons are the Colt Single Action Army (first made in 1873) and Colt New Service (1898) revolvers, as well as the Winchester 1892, 1894 and 1906 lever-action rifles. See more »

django da da deedeedee de dum
22 August 2003 | by (milwaukee) – See all my reviews

Hello y'all. Just would like to add my own little critique of this movie.

Django was probably the first Euro western i'd seen outside of the familiar Leone territory, and, at first i was a little dissapointed. So i watched it again, and again. Then it dawned on me just how cool it was, having been used to the choreographed pyrotechnics of much greater films(ie the leone dollars movies etc) this was a dirty, cold,bitter little movie where nobody really comes out on top, especially the movies protagonist. Yeah, i know he returned to kill and strike again, but this one stands alongside il grande silencio and Keoma as a really good example of a genre theme that would eventually be done to death. So what if it borrows from Leone? Don't forget where he borrowed from in the first place. Anyway, i would just like to say to anyone that has not seen this movie, give it a chance. One final note: in spite of our desensetisation to violence, this is still a stomach churning endeavour, with a body count like a hot day in france, and a sadistic bent that would make peter sutcliffe run for the bathroom, Django reaches parts that only a fistfull of broken fingers can!
