Serviceable spaghetti saga
24 September 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This has nothing to do with the Franco Nero "Django" movie, though I'm pretty sure you already know that. Though this "Django" movie is not up to the Nero movie, it is a competent little spaghetti western. Certainly, it's not perfect. A number of characters are stereotypes found in other spaghetti westerns, like the goofy bearded tubby fellow who helps the protagonist. The hero is kind of smug and arrogant at times. There is a minimum of plot, which is really evident when things are wrapped up for the most part long before the very end. On the other hand, the movie does have a nice musical score, sports some good scenes of action as well as moments of suspense, and doesn't have any boring sequences. There is also a twist at the end that I didn't see coming. The movie doesn't break new ground, but it's adequate for spaghetti western fans.
