Skadinavian Edition, PAL/Region 2 Blu-Ray 1080p High Definition Widescreen DTS-HD Master Audio: Subtitles: Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish. Famed Japanese auteur Takashi Miike, best known for cult classics Audition, Ichi the Killer, and The City of Lost Souls, redefines the spaghetti Western with Sukiyaki Western Django, a tale written in blood. Two clans, the white, Genji clan, led by Yoshitsune, and the red, Heike clan, led by Kiyomori, battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a desolate mountain town. One day, a lone gunman, burdened with deep emotional scars but blessed with incredible shooting skills, drifts into town. Two clans try to woo the lone gunman to their side, but he has ulterior motives. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and love collide as the situation erupts into a final, explosive showdown. Quentin Tarantino also stars.

This is an enjoyable film, but it does suffer from some problems that could've been avoided.

1. Quentin Tarantino should remain behind the camera. Some may find an appearance by him cool; I personally find him annoying as hell.

2. This is apparently the international cut of the movie, some 20 minutes shorter than Takashi Miike's vision, and the film suffers slightly from the cuts.

3. This is the most serious flaw of the film - Why they decided to have the Japanese actors speak English throughout is beyond belief! Some are obviously struggling with the English language, and it's distracting at times.

As I've said, this is still enjoyable, but it could've been so much more! The Blu-Ray's picture quality is very good, and so too is the audio.

A missed opportunity.

Format: DVD
Takashi Miike must have been snorting shredded wheat for months to dream up this confusion of so many different elements. Yes I know, how clever to incorporate elements of the historical Genpei war, the Wars of the Roses, the films of Sergio Leone, Akira Kurosawa and Sergio Corbucci in particular. Thanks Takashi, I know my history and have seen all the films ta. So we get the surreal sight of a western gunfighter with revolver in feudal Japan. But not so unfair as the main villain gets a gun just like Lee Van Cleef's in "For a Few Dollars More". Then we have the Japanese actors speaking English phoenetically, which fails dismally. I mean you really shouldn't have to stick the subtitles on for a supposedly English speaking film. A pity because the film looks so ravishingly good. The sets and sumptuous cinematography are worthy of much better. I can see where Miike is coming from. I genuinely love the western too, although I admit Spaghetti's were never my favourite. Funny to see Quentin Tarantino on board, a man who is heavily influenced by the likes of Leone and Corbucci. It will be interesting to see what his latest "Django Unchained" is going to be like. Better than this I hope! If you want to see a better example of a western spoof, then watch Alex Cox's "Straight From Hell", who was another director heavily influenced by spaghetti westerns. Can't be bothered to go on, losing heart, and a nice sausage sandwich beckons! Two stars for the nice sets, costumes and cinematography. Otherwise pants!

This is a strange film and not in the sense of its content. I personally enjoy the wide range that Takashi Miike offers from his gangster films to his samurai films but this film just didn't do it for me. Personally speaking this film was fairly mediocre in terms of everything really. Miike can do a lot better than rehashing the tired 2 warring factions with the simple villagers in the middle. But my biggest complaint by far is the director's choice to shoot this in English. This fact didn't add anything as i still had to put the subtitles on as most of the casts accents are so think i could only make out the odd word.

Overall: If you are a fan of Takashi Mike give this film a go but don't hold your breath. A strictly mediocre effort.

Although I can appreciate this film is somewhat of an aquired taste, I thoroughly enjoyed it! It is an offbeat gem, shot beautifully with plenty of action, pathos and dark comedy. My one complaint is that having viewed the uncut version I feel the cuts made to the international version are rather brutal and come at the expense of depth of character and plot. I would love to get my hands on a copy with these scenes reinstated and not just given the deleted scenes treatment in the extras! Still an amazing film though, I especially enjoyed the performances of Yuseke Iseya, Koichi Sato and Kaori Momoi.

This movie is gorgeous, let's say that straight away. Every scene looks beautiful and the characters each brim with personality. It's cheesy over the top gory action will more than satisfy any fan of both genres. I only have two complaints: the random dark moments and the Emglish acting. The film is 90% entertaining fun but there are two or three majorly depressing scenes; also the entirely Japanese (aside from Tarantino) attempt to do the whole movie in English, not to sound mean but I had subtitles on because I did not understand what they were saying without them

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and payed homage to several Spaghetti Western's in small subtle references. The director has his unique style and blended well with the film, along with the actors and the locations it's a must see for Spaghetti Western fans

A return to form for Miike with a film that could only really come from him. Based loosely on two classics, Yojimbo and Django, the colours are amazing, the cinematography outstanding and there's a number of fantasic action set-pieces. Some nice one-liners too. Tarantino's involvement is interesting and shows the admiration he has for Miike as a director.

Pretty much a reinvention of the spaghetti western and it really does pack a powerful punch.

Shorter than the version I watched in the cinema. I did not notice that this was an Italian disk with subtitles in Italian - annoying.
Note to self - do not buy on Amazon using mobile device duh!
