Quintessential spaghetti western. I'm not very big on westerns, nor on badly dubbed, cheap-looking Italian genre classics, but combine the two and the total seems at least to be slightly bigger than the sum of its parts. I'm not saying this film was great, but it is noticeably better than your average western.

Django is part of a gang who have their eye on some gold transported inside a carriage. Their heist goes according to plan, but once they have the gold Django's companions betray him and leave him for dead. Django survives and wants to have his revenge, but others are also looking to get their hands on the gold.

The performances are horrible, the film looks pretty crummy and the runtime is a bit of an issue, but at least the film never takes itself too seriously. There are quite a few daft characters and oddball situations, which keeps this at least somewhat interesting throughout. Not my thing, but I could appreciate some things it attempted to do.
