Se sei vivo spara (Django Kill - If You Live, Shoot!) Reviews
my top 10 favs ! This movie goes over the top and explodes
with fireworks and a grand "TADAH ! " It's ultraviolent, strange,
silly and just plain FUN!!
If You Live Shoot! is a classic Italian Western. It has the nihilistic tone of all Spaghetti Westerns yet its also one of the most depraved of the bunch that ive seen. Its a very violent sadistic film filled with disembowellings, scalping, hangings, molten gold coverings and a gay sex hungry squad of Muchachos! This film is fucking odd to say the least. A very young Thomas Milian stars with an even younger Ray Lovelock. Two of my favorite genre actors. This was way better than i expected it to be.
I enjoyed two memorable scenes: last american outlaws has been badly injured from our hero (mex outlaw T.Milian) . Milian had a gun with gold bullets and delivered a little trasure on the body of that villain...(haha great). What do you think to do when you find a virtually dead man with a body full of golden bullets?? Try to save him? a Doc started the operation but the bunch of mex 'ghouls' aroud they see the gold and they begin to dismember that body by naked hands ..hahaha! Gold..gold ! Movie it's a ferocious fight to have the gold. You'll see Sadistic murders and a gang of Pervert Rapists (a young R.Lovelock is the victim) too...Beware of the fire, folks: the gold it changes as a warm, liquid metal! Don't open the door of a furniture, you should take a shower of gold on your head...
i recommend full uncensored version. This movie has been censored and blocked in '67 and withdrawn from distribution until '75. A damn movie.
Screw MST3K. Honestly.
Rapes, murders, demons and John Cassavetes. Good ending too.
Delirious starts really funny and than becomes mind-numbingly boring when Eddie Murphy starts yapping about his family.
Unrest is by [i]far[/i] the best Afterdark Horrorfest film I've seen which isn't saying much.
I hope to God that Django, Kill isn't indicative of the quality of the original and of Takashi Miike's remake because otherwise... ouch.
This is the most original and the strangest western story I have ever seen. The editing is fantastic, the directing is good, and the actors are perfect for their roles. The music bears some semblance to the traditional twang of spaghetti-western guitar, but it is complimented with organs and jarring minor chords. The whole thing begins to resemble an old horror story from the 1800s more than a western. The result is a very, very good movie.
There were two problems I had with the movie, though. One character disappears without any explanation, and there is a very cheesily done torture scene involving what are supposed to be vampire bats, but what looks to be nature documentary footage of fruit bats in the wild. Both of these things occur near the end of the film, and make the latter half less satisfying than the first half, but all in all, it's still a very good film and one worth seeing.
This film has it all...
Murder...rape... violence... firing squads... gold bullets... lynchings... angry townspeople... duplicitous women... duplicitous men... exploding horses... resurrection... torture... scalping and finally, - - Gay cowboys!
Tomas Milan is brilliant as ever and his character... ("the stranger"... NOT "Django") quite probably went on to inspire STAR WAR's Han Solo...
It's interesting to see what each of these characers will do for wealth... Tomas Milan's character ends up being the "hero" not because he does alot of good along the way but instead because he does the LEAST amount of evil.
A must see for fans of Spaghetti westerns... much of this movie would be lost on anyone else.
