4.0 out of 5 stars Cheer up! Could be Worse. We're only Hanging You!
Sergio Corbucci's original 1966 "Django" starring Franco Nero in the eponymous role spawned hundreds of imitators cashing in on its success. Many of these films used Django in the title or as a character in the film. They vary greatly in quality! The only official sequel endorsed by Corbucci himself was "Django Strikes Again"(87) starring a slightly older Franco Nero...

3.0 out of 5 stars Junk Spaghetti Western worth a look
First you can purchase this movie at Sainsbury's for just 3. If you like junk spaghetti westerns this supposedly cult movie is worth a look. The Fistful of Dollars trilogy are superior examples of the genre.

This review is from: Django Prepare a Coffin [DVD] [1968] (DVD)
Sergio Corbucci's original 1966 "Django" starring Franco Nero in the eponymous role spawned hundreds of imitators cashing in on its success. Many of these films used Django in the title or as a character in the film. They vary greatly in quality! The only official sequel endorsed by Corbucci himself was "Django Strikes Again"(87) starring a slightly older Franco Nero. This one stars the Italian actor Terence Hill, born Mario Girotti in the title role, and is directed by the less well known Ferdinando Baldi. With the same clean good looks Hill is a dead ringer for Franco Nero, which is probably why he was picked for the role. The film has only just been released presumably to cash in on the success of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained". Tarantino's work has been heavily influenced by the manic excesses of the Italian spaghetti westerns, of which he is a devoted fan. This one actually turns out to be better than I expected.

This time Django is after the gang who murdered his wife during the robbery of a stagecoach. As he closes in on the gang an old friend from the past resurfaces. Being a Django film you get the usual surfeit of violence, and Django gets his compulsory violent beating. This only makes our hero mad, and that is not a good move. As in the original film Django gets to wreak some havoc with his trusty gatling gun. Everyone should have one! The film actually has a few funny tongue in cheek lines that made me laugh. On one occasion a man is being led to the gallows and a deputy says to him "cheer up". Not easy under the circumstances! The film is well shot on location in Italy and has nice vibrant colours. The score by Gianfranco Reverberi is a very decent singalong one in the best traditions of the spaghetti western. So far as spaghetti westerns go this is not a bad one. three and a half stars really, but rounded up to a very generous four! Must be in a good mood!

Sooo freakin' good that it made me wanna get my own gattling-gun, so I could go out and kill me some nasty people. Suburb acting and the tension between the different characters are throughout the movie. Really hard to recommend this movie enough, because it's so intensely fantastic.

The quality was great, arrived on time. Django, Prepare a Coffin is second only to the original Django. If you love spaghetti westerns you will enjoy this movie.
