There are many wanna-be
sequels to Sergio Corbucci's original DJANGO,
but this is the only one endorsed by the filmmaker. And it's the only
one starring the original Django, Franco Nero.
Director Nello Rossati (best known for the extraordinary films CAT
IN HEAT and INDECENTLY
DANGEROUS ESCAPE) creates an odd tale here. Django has been in
a monastery for ten years, trying to forget his bloody past. Then he receives
word that his daughter has been kidnapped and is being held captive by
a vicious slave-trafficker named Orlowsky. Obviously, Django sheds his
monk robe (and apparently his religious philosophy), digs up his legendary
Gatling gun [from a grave in the cemetery marked 'Django'], and goes to
her rescue, avenging numerous evils along the way.
The film has a curious
alien look about it, probably due to the unsettling locale (it was shot
in Columbia). It doesn't look like America, at least not North
America. And certainly, not like the West. Rather, it appears to be set
in the Amazon.
Italian film in English language; widescreen format (16:9), uncut (97
minutes), DVD encoded for
ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT; extras include original theatrical trailer.
