The gimmicky gore fest quickly fell out of favor with me.

Ultimately not quite as clever as it thinks it is. Even the action sequences are more about Foley than choreography, and so the film largely rests on the oddity of its mix of styles and its parade of genre in-jokes

Miike's 'wild east' take on the western genre is a colourfully violent stand-off of pastiche, politics and punk.

Sukiyaki Western Django is a singular work of art that both celebrates those disjointed parts and synthesizes them into a strangely cohesive %u2013 and more amazingly, unique whole.

Although something of a confusing and befuddling mess, Miike's foray into the Western genre, Sukiyaki Western Django is another showcase for his playful and often gory style.

...everything that was supposed to enliven the picture perfect images just seemed to drag them down with lame dialogue and clichéd action.

... for all its virtues, Sukiyaki Western Django is a one-gimmick film that eventually wears out its welcome.

Clever costuming and production design set off an intriguingly off-kilter vision of a tiny western town in a "Nevada" out in the Japanese desert.

Miike knows how to film cartoonish violence with style, and the sillier the movie becomes in its mayhem, the harder it is to turn away from.

As much of a hoot as the movie is, it feels like just an exercise well before it ends.

Director Takashi Miike's dish of sukiyaki spaghetti ala Sergio Corbucci is badly seasoned with scraps of reservoir dogs.

Sukiyaki Western Django is Takashi Miike's frantic swirl of a spaghetti western, marrying eastern and western elements in what could be taken as either homage or parody -- or both.

The chaotic elements never really coalesce into a sensible whole beyond the idea that this is what, at that moment, Miike thought would be really cool...the film is cluttered and not very fun.

Japanese spaghetti Western that's both faithful to its Italian antecedents and way out on its own wacky wavelength.

September 12, 2008
A remarkably inventive yet referential Eastern Western, full of action, cinematic references, pop-cowboy lingo, bloody haute costuming, two warring clans and one carnage-inducing Gatling gun.

Cult director Takashi Miike's English-language Sukiyaki Western Django has style to burn but self-destructs like a wildfire as it attempts to spoof spaghetti westerns -- a passé endeavor -- and Sergio Corbucci's Django in particular.
