With such a bargain price this has to be the best Spaghetti Western deal on Amazon. The widescreen transfer has terrific color and clarity. There is a reversible box insert with an alternate cover which is much nicer than the one shown here. An informative booklet about the movie is also included. It's a great offering from Arrow and I recommend it to any Spaghetti Western fan. You won't regret it. Oh yes, and the movie is pretty darn good too, particularly Terence Hill with his piercing blue eyes.

This is perhaps Terence Hill's greatest role as I personally often find his slapstick styling of later movies difficult to grasp. Here however he oozes class, clad all in black and convincingly playing the character second only to the Man With No Name for pure charisma. The rest of the cast is also a real treat - with both Eastman and Frank as brilliant as ever. Eastman's characters alway manage to be quite likable regardless of their bad morals and actions, whilst Frank just oozes with evil. Two of the great great supporting actors of the genre.

Great DVD with an excellent picture quality. I bought this movie for nostalgic reason. I first saw this movie in the 70s in Cambodia during the height of the Cambodian civil war which was later won by the Khmer Rouge. I was about 10 years old. This movie takes my memory back to the last few years in Cambodia where I had some great early childhood before being sent to the labor camp to live under Pol Pot regime.

Good spaghetti, terrible blu-ray. The black levels on this release are screwed making the picture look washed out and not like film at all. This seems to be a problem that plagues a lot of Arrow releases.

The story deals with how Django rescues a set of men by faking their death by hanging, then aims to use them to take revenge on the man that killed his wife and is responsible for stealing gold bullion. The movie is alright rather than spectacular. It has some interesting plot dynamics between Django and the men he rescues not being entirely loyal to him, Terence Hill plays straight with surprising intensity, and the bad guys (especially the lead villain smoothly played by Frank Horst) are not cartoony caricatures. At the same time, the film is visually flat, The gunfights are not too impressive in execution and the film does not have the scope of the top-tier spaghetti westerns.
Arrow's blu-ray gives a fair presentation, although the restoration (from a 35mm interpositive) does not appear as striking as what one has seen from the more prestigious films. Video looks generally soft, grain can seem a little clumpy and contrast/tinting does not seem the best balanced, veering towards a yellow hue. I saw the film with the English soundtrack, which seems to gel best with the lip movements of the major actors, although it is also an obvious overdub. The main on-disc extra is an 8min look at the film and its place in the Django canon. There is also a 14-page booklet with a meaty essay.
So not a major release from Arrow, but decent and at the ~6GBP price point I got it at, a fair deal on a blind-buy.

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!
