Though Sergio Leone created the spaghetti western with A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, the genre was not popularized in Europe until Sergio Corbucci's DJANGO, which subsequently spawned countless illegitimate sequels. The film stars the Belgian hunk Franco Nero as Django, a mysterious gunslinger who drags a coffin behind him that contains a Gatling gun. Django soon happens upon a Mexican town where a group of Mexican revolutionaries, led by the nefarious Colonel Jackson, have overrun the town, wantonly killing its citizens. Soon, Django, who has a personal vendetta against Colonel Jackson, finds himself in league with a group of Mexican bandits who want to steal the Colonel's gold with the help of Django and his Gatling gun. Combining a stylish use of spaghetti western conventions -- among them a cruel and cartoonish bad guy as well as dramatic music that punctuates the action -- DJANGO is one of the best and most popular films the genre has ever produced.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Sergio Corbucci's film is notable not only for the artistry of its construction, but also for the underlying anger that fuels its political agenda.
Fresh: Sergio Corbucci's Django is trapped between two states (literally Texas and Mexico, more metaphorically life and death) even as he brings a new (a)morality and sadism to a gunslinging figure of old America.
Why the spoiler?
You have to love when the plot summary contains a spoiler in the second sentence. (You're not supposed to know what's in the coffin)
This is one of the more controversial Spaghetti Westerns and Corbucci's best.
Outstanding yet Violent western
I am so intrigued with the Clint Eastwood westerns from this era, that I look at other movies trying to copy that format with disdain. All except for this one. I loved the simplicity of it, bad guys, good guy, girl in the middle. Franco Nero pulls off this like no other could. Very violent, so beware of this before watching, but outstanding movie.
This Film is dubbed!
The original might be a superb film, but this version is dubbed in English by worst possible actors. In fact, while you watch the film, you can imagine they are reading their lines, instead of acting, and their words never match their lips. Apple should warn us that this version is dubbed (by the worst actors imaginable).
