W Django


Picture: D     Sound: C-     Extras: D     Film: D



Because it is such a nice DVD case and treated like it is a good Spaghetti Western when it is not, we had to take a quick look at the 1971 Django sequel W Django, which tries to replace original star Franco Nero with Anthony Steffen.  Out of about 30 films, Nero did the first and last.  In between, there were many bad cash-ins and this is as bad as they get.  The stereotypes abound in a script that is formula of formula, the very kind of formula Sergio Leone was breaking up in the first place of previous films in the Western genre.  Yikes, is this lame.


This version is framed at about 1.78 X 1 letterbox, but if you zoom in a widescreen TV on it, you might cut off the optional subtitles.  Yet, the picture image quality is such a mess with poor color, a transfer that is analog, plus a few generations down.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is noisy and shows the dubbing typical of these films, but is also a few generations down.  The only extra are a few stills and illustrated pullout inside the DVD case, but both are very nominal.
