When a band of notorious outlaws rapes and kills Django's wife, the vengeful gun-slinger is ready to draw some blood in this violent sequel to Sergio Corbucci's 1966 spaghetti Western classic. He has to team up with a loud mouthed thief, who is the only one who knows the identity of the perpetrators. Anthony Steffen stars in the role originally made famous by Franco Nero.
W Django tells, in a good and straight SW manner, an action packed revenge story of not too much originality, but which is generally well enough made and dirty enough looking to be an enjoyable entertainment. And here and there are lurking a few nice ideas (especially the last shots) amongst the overall solid directing. And Anthony Steffen's stone face acting is in this film just right by providing a nice contrast to the "Tuco" inspired over-acting by Glauco Onorato.
