Goofs

The belt feeding the cartridges into Django's machine gun is far too short for the number of rounds being fired in any of the scenes it is used in, and the belt isn't being fed through the firing mechanism. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Maj. Jackson: [preparing to kill Django] Django, I think you should make a last request! I'll be glad to oblige you any way I can. Start praying if you like, I don't mind. It's a smart thing to do when you know that death is coming for you. How come you haven't you got your burial suit with you? We'll have to leave you to the vultures! So now, begin your prayer...
[shoots a side of Mercedes Zaro's cross]
Maj. Jackson: I can't hear ya!
[reloads and fires]
Maj. Jackson: Okay... now!
[reloads and fires twice]
Django: Can you hear THIS?

Django at Gundown
25 October 2003 | by cbdunnSee all my reviews

This is an awsome Spaghetti Western. This is the original that launched over 70 imitation and non-direct sequels. This film was also the inspiration for Robert Rodriguez's El Mariachi and Desperado. The end shootout in the graveyard is amazing. Also, the feeling of the wind swept mud ridden streets is ever present. I respect anti-heroes of film more than the prefect hero. Django is just as cold if not colder and more relentless than the opponents he takes on and out. The coffin is a great original touch. Also check out THE sequel Django Strikes Again (with Franco Nero) and one of the best Django homage sequels Kill, Django Kill starring Thomas Milian (released by Blue Underground Entertainment). This movie gets two colt winchesters up!!!!
