Acceptable sequel with Django become a monk , he then seeks vendetta when his daughter is kidnapped
The original Django , the classic and violent Spaghetti Western had numerous imitations . The picture was no authorized to minor 18 years and prohibited in various countries for its violence, for example in England ; but in France , Germany was a real success and in Japan there is one ¨Fondazione Django¨ too . It was followed by this official sequel titled ¨Django strikes again (1987)¨ by Nello Rossati , alias Ted Archer , with Franco Nero who has abandoned his previous life of violence , though returns when his daughter is kidnapped . Django (Franco Nero) was a former gunfighter , a stranger without identity , at the beginning he lives a pacific existence , he forgot vengeance and subsequent deaths , in favor of a life as ascetic . Here Django has become a monk and left his avenger former ways . His daughter is abducted by a rogue Hungarian officer nicknamed 'El Diablo' Orlowsky (Christopher Connelly) who lives aboard a ship called ¨Mariposa Negra¨ or ¨Black butterfly¨ and using slave labor to work a silver mine . Django casts off his habit and digs up his machine gun . Later on , he is going to jungle wielding the machine gun behind him and driving a hearse . There he will take on brutal rivals , ¨El Diablo¨ and his ruthless army of French soldiers recruited by Emperor Maximilian . Django befriends a boy and helps him to avenge his father . Django seeks revenge and go after the dastardly nasties .
It's an exciting western with thrills , violence , high body count , breathtaking showdown between the starring and the enemies . The highlights of the film are the confrontation at the jungle full of mud and dirtiness , Django wielding a machine gun (though with anachronism because is a 'Maxim model' that was made in 1880 and isn't utilized the usual 'Gatlin') and he does a real rampage . Besides , the attack at fort where Django causes a cruel slaughter and of course , the final showdown . Django is named as homage to Django Reinhardt , the famous American musician who introduced his particular guitar , he had a crippled hand , viewers at the time would have been aware of this allusion . The film blends violence , blood , strong tortures , shootouts and it's fast moving . In the picture appears usual secondaries from Spaghetti , Giallo and other Italian sub-genres of the 60s and 70s such as William Berger , Roberto Posse , Rodrigo Obregón and the great Donald Pleasence . There are many technicians and assistants who had a wide career , as cameraman Sandro Mancori who makes a nice photography with barren outdoors , gorgeous landscapes under a glimmer sun , being shot in Colombia . Although , a perfect remastering is necessary , because of the copy of the picture is washed-out . Nello Rossati direction is passable , after that , he will make several films of all kind of genres , wartime : Tides of War , Action : Fuga Scabrosamente Pericolosa , Giallo : La Gatta in Calore , Softcore comedy : The sensuous nurse , La Nipote and Sci-fi : Top Line .
This cult movie ¨Django¨ was a considerable hit , 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 and spawned hundreds of unofficial sequels . Some were incorrectly titled Django , and were only titled so to cash in on the original . The film was so popular in Germany that almost every Franco Nero western there bears the Django name . Although there have been over 30 films containing the character since 1966, there has only been one "official" sequel, this 1987's Django Strikes Again, directed by Ted Archer and starring Nero . As well as numerous unofficial sequels , rip-offs, and copies, such as ¨Django the last killer(67)¨ by Giuseppe Vari with George Eastman ; Django dares Sartana¨ (69) by Pascuale Squitieri ; Django Il Bastardo¨ (1969) by Sergio Garrone with Anthony Steffen , ¨Django shoots first (1974)¨ by Alberto De Martino with Glen Saxon and Evelyn Stewart . And The film was Quentin Tarantino's inspiration behind his 2012 film "Django: Unchained¨. Original star Franco Nero is set to return to the role of Django almost 50 years after the character's first appearance in Sergio Corbucci 1966 Spaghetti Western and almost thirty years since his second appearance in 1987′s Django Strikes Again!m in a new movie is being directed by regular Tarantino collaborator Joe D'Augustine . American company called Point Blank has secured the rights to the character, and is aiming to set up a third Django film, to be called Django Lives .
