Django (1966)

4.5 out of 5

Franco Nero stars as the first original Django, the man who walks the west, literally dragging death behind in the form of his very own coffin, much like a prisoner with a ball and chain. But also hidden deep within his coffin lies chaos and destruction and also death for any other who would stand in the way of Django's bloody trail of vengeance.

Sergio Corbucci directs the viewer through a mud drenched, blood soaked, apocalyptic western hell. Words such as symbolic, stylish, mythical, brutal, violent, bleak, powerful, not to mention trend-setting, groundbreaking, and controversial are words and expressions best used when talking about this great and original western classic filled frame by frame with over the top western carnage and mayhem as only the Italians could do it.

This is the iconic film that launched over 50 unofficial sequels and is simply a must see/own for any serious Western fan or collector.
