Storyline

On his way to the dusty town of Santa Anna to protect Sanders, a man trying to make a deal with the Mexican bandit, El Santo, for the safe passage of his cargo, the solitary gunslinger, Bill, realises that he has arrived at the rendezvous point too late. With Sanders and his entire family murdered, Bill suspects that the deceased's dangerous rival, Dr Thompson, and his henchmen are behind the bloody assault, trying to make a profit from the same deal. Now, Bill is all alone in the town of jackals. Can taciturn Bill outsmart Thompson's men, and get out of Santa Anna in one piece? Written by Nick Riganas

Serviceable spaghetti western
11 January 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

"Django Kills Silently" (a.k.a. "Django Kills Softly") is overall a serviceable spaghetti western for people who have an interest in the genre. Some of its positive attributes include a good musical score, some good action sequences, and a pretty good performance by George Eastman, a hulking actor who you might think is better suited for bad guy roles. Also, the plot of the movie is not standard or predictable - it keeps jumping from place to place and to new characters on a regular schedule. Although one problem of this is you may be wondering just when the movie is going to settle on some key elements! Another problem is that the movie doesn't explore the lead character's motivations or character that deeply. If his name is indeed "Django", we learn this from the title, since his name is never mentioned once in the movie! Still, apart from a few quibbles like those, the movie passes the time adequately enough.
