I watched this about 8 years ago on a Danish VHS tape and it didn’t do much for me but I’ve just rewatched it via the KOCH DVD (about 5 years after buying it) and I was very impressed!
It had a cool style, visuals, atmosphere and a good score with good action. A very good example of the genre. I like Garko in every western I’ve seen him in.
The spaghetti-isms still grate - the funny old timer, the multiple captures and escapes, the dynamite in the canyon , Django’s over elaborate game with the the gold. It seems like every SW has to lessen it’s impact with some of these cliches and touches. Also, it doesn’t really make as much as it could of it’s central ideas i.e. Django’s weird attraction to Camaso’s criminal character and the terrible miscalculation Django makes with the stagecoach and the price he pays.
Still a very good film with some “bad” touches which is way, way better than just a plain bad film!
