4.0 out of 5 stars Corbucci's best film! September 18, 2001
Format:DVD
Don't listen to any claims made made for Bullet For A General, Django is without a doubt the best non-Leone spaghetti Western of all time. The opening scene (blue-clad Nero carrying a saddle over his shoulder and dragging a coffin through the gooiest mud in film history)is beautiful. Corbucci's direction is more controlled here than anywhere else--less zooms, less jarring close-ups, and neater editing. And Django has to be one of the first action heroes to fire a heavy machine gun from the hip (without even pulling the trigger, no less!).
But make no mistake. This is Italian exploitation--love it or hate it. An ear is cut off, prostitutes fight in the mud, and our hero's hands are crushed in gory detail that would make One-Eyed Jacks mumble in disgust. Don't expect John Ford here. But if you're looking for something different, are curious about spaghetti Westerns but afraid to buy any because so many are horrible--then this is the movie for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not Delivery...........It's Django November 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I think most people who don't care much for this movie had been spoiled by Leone before watching it. I mean, Leone really set the bar high for westerns and I don't think anyone has done it as good since. He pretty much reinvented the western and set the rules. Italian directors who followed in his wake were directors who usually did other kinds of films, but started doing westerns coz they were big bucks at the box office. Django was the first of the non-Leone spaghetti westerns, and it's a great movie. Sure, the budget shows and the acting isn't always the best, but I'm able to look past that. The look of the film is unique-Instead of the blazing hot deserts, most of this film is cloudy and muddy(I know it was shot in winter and I think it takes place in winter as well), giving it it's own look. Franco Nero is no Eastwood or Bronson, but he has the right stuff for the part and pulls it off nicely. Very violent for 1966, but we've become so desensitized over the years that it won't have you gasping in shock. It's still brutal enough though. Lots of complaints about the soundtrack again. Well, once again this isn't Leone, therefore the epic music isn't here either. But I don't see how you can hear the theme song and not laugh. You can just see Tom Jones singing this to a crowd of screaming women in Vegas. Once again Blue Underground has given another forgotten film the best possible treatment it can have. They give us an interview with Franco Nero and a very interesting short film with Nero as well. And as always, Blue Underground gives us the original poster as the cover(I love how they do that with these old flicks!). If you have any interest at all in westerns and have seen the Dollars trilogy too many times, you can't go wrong with Django-that is if you lower your expectations a tad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mud, Blood and Brilliance November 2, 2004
By John P
Format:DVD
This is a classic spaghetti western and an unforgettable film. Filmed on a low budget in the Spanish winter of 65/66, it shows an inventiveness and exuberance that takes the whole genre forward by the scruff of the neck. Hauntingly atmospheric, brilliantly designed and full of almost non-stop action, it repays endless viewings. A particular bonus with this release is the option of a subtitled Italian-language track, which means (a) that you don't have to listen to the awful English version and (b)you get a taste of the original script, which sometimes differs markedly from the dubbed version. The extras include enlightening interviews with Franco Nero and Ruggero Deodato, and a bonus 10-minute monochrome short (stylised and wordless) featuring Nero as an ageing gunslinger, which is worth a look. The main disappointment is the poor quality of some scenes due to the DVD being sourced from a damaged negative. According to the sleeve, this had been found in an Italian vault, "untouched for three decades" - but the British Film Institute was able to source a pristine version for the UK cinema and video release in 1991. Apart from that, full marks for presentation. If you want a lesson in how to make an action masterpiece on a shoestring budget then this is the film for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Django Chained April 6, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Blue Underground, god bless 'em, disappoint again with their blu-ray line, this time it's the 1966 Sergio Corbucci/Franco Nero spaghetti western classic Django. I don't know what they're seeing on their monitors at BU HQ, but this hi-def presentation is literally ruined by a thick, grimy layer of digital distortion and noise all the way thru. Go back, read that sentence again. I've tried to watch this thing five or six times and just give up around the 15 or 20 min mark everytime. And yes, I've checked later chapters, and the image never improves. After viewing the last Django BU DVD release - which I recommend btw (see, I'm NOT a Blue Underground hater), I'd say that the problem may well lie (is that correct grammar?) with the film elements themselves. Some movies just weren't meant to be seen in the over-cranked blu format...or maybe it's the mastering equipment...I dunno. All I can say is that I wanted to fall in love with this disc and...I just can't. No quibs with the actual film itself. Stone classic. And maybe I'm expecting too much - nah! This disc falls flat on every level. If you've seen the Tarantino tribute film thingy, you know how good the theme song can sound. The sound on this disc is "true to original" but it's still mono, flat and slightly distorted. I know, I know - that's the way it was supposed to sound. But I don't think the video image was ever supposed to look like this. Listen. Buy the Blue Underground DVD. As of 2013, it's probably the best way to see this flick in the home video format. And you know what? I'm ok with that.
