A lesser "Django" movie, 3 May 2006
Author: The_Void from Beverley Hills, England

This film was made in the same year as 'Django the Bastard', with the same director and the same actor in the title role. A Noose for Django feels a lot like an afterthought, and I wouldn't be surprised to find that is the case. This film doesn't benefit from as good a storyline as the aforementioned Spaghetti western, and it feels more like a film that has had the name 'Django' slapped on it to help it's selling prospects, as the title character feels very much like he's just been dropped into the plot. The plot highlights the antagonism between Mexicans and Americans in a story about smuggling illegal immigrants into an American township. Towards the start, we see a smuggler ditch his cargo in callous fashion. From there, we learn that there's a bounty on the heads of all illegal smugglers, and this attracts the bounty hunter Django to the fray in order to bring the men to justice. However, Django isn't the only hunter on their trail as he faces competition from other gunslingers. Well, I think this is the basic plot line; the muddled screenplay doesn't exactly make it easy to decipher exact plot details.

A Noose for Django is one of the more difficult to find entries in the Django series, and that seems pretty apt it really isn't all that good. Naturally, the film features a plethora of violent gun fights and a handful of gritty characters; but nothing is really explained or done in any great detail, which really leaves the film feeling rather flat. Anthony Steffen gives a performance that is, in my opinion, better than the one he gave in Django the Bastard (albeit slightly); but it's spoiled by the fact that he's eclipsed by his rival bounty hunter and his very cool seven barrelled shotgun! Said gun represents what is probably the only real memorable thing about this film; which really says a lot for it. However, in typical Italian fashion; A Noose for Django compensates for its muddled and rather boring story with style. The atmosphere is dark and gritty and the locations, while obviously cheap, do help the film with regards to the atmosphere as it presents a very minimalist western style. Overall, I can't say that I liked this film very much and don't recommend tracking it down; although there may be something here for Spaghetti western fan.
