2.0 out of 5 stars Some Dollars for Django, 6 Sep 2009

This review is from: Some Dollars For Django [DVD] (DVD)
Regan a bounty hunter is hired to track down Jim Norton who along with his gang stole $100,000 from a mining company. On his way to Rockspring he comes across a dead sheriff and takes his identity, when he arrives in town he finds that there is a war going on between the cattle ranchers and the farmers who are lead by Trevor Norton, Jim's twin brother, but is he who he claims to be?

This is another one of them Spaghetti Westerns that took the name Django and put it in the title to try and cash in on success of the Sergio Corbucci movie which was made the very same year. Although it may have Django in the title there isn't anyone in the film who bares that name and the lead character is called Regan.

The story about cattle ranchers fighting against farmers gives this film a very Americanised feel. Which I didn't actually mind as I actually found the story pretty good even though it sticks to the basic's and doesn't try to be anything different or unusual.

Leon Klimovsky was credited as the director but it was in-fact Enzo G Castalleri, this was his first Spaghetti Western and his direction is good enough and keeps the film moving at a fast pace. The main problem I had with this film was the poor editing used in some of the gunfight sequences but there is a few good ones though, like the opening scene which I thought was the best thing in the movie.

There's also a very poor and sometimes irritating score by Carlo Savina.

Overall a entertaining film with some good performances from the Stella cast.

GREAT DVD QUALITY, ENGLISH AUDIO

3.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, 10 April 2010

I don't know why the other reviewers are so harsh on this film. It certainly isn't in the same league with the best of the genre but it isn't bad either. The stars, Anthony Steffen and Frank Wolff are very watchable and the widescreen transfer is a good one. Also it is a rather obscure title and definitely worth adding to the collection of anyone who enjoys Spaghetti Westerns.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a real Django, but still classic spaghetti western!, 13 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Some Dollars For Django [DVD] (DVD)
Although this one is not a real Django entry - Steffen plays a gunfighter named Reagan here - it's a real spaghetti western of the sixties with all the touches that gives a special and cult atmosphere for this genre nowdays. A good fun for nostalgic addicts of italian western but not a great movie in absolute.

1.0 out of 5 stars Spagetti non al dente, 12 Jun 2006

This review is from: Some Dollars For Django [DVD] (DVD)
Even to devotees of the genre this one is of minor interest. It illustrates the banality the Italian Western before Leone. Its ambition is to reproduce the very dullest features of Hollywood B-feature cowies; the look in costume and landscape, the clean streets, the dismally sub-Shane troubled character searching for a meaningful future, the redemptive love-interest, the shoot-outs from behind boulders; the leaden moral of the story. In other words everything we love the Dollar films for sweeping away.

At most it is of passing note to die-hard enthusiasts as an example of quite how feeble others were in this kind of "enigmatic" lead role and so just what Clint Eastwood was actually achieving when he appeared to be doing so little. Also, the unintentional amusement of the scene where the wicked cattle ranchers set to work rounding up... a herd of horses: clearly cows were in short supply on the plains of Spain.

For all other than dedicated scholars of the form - give it a miss. There is so much better to be had out there.
