Sukiyaki Western Django

Maverick Japanese director Takashi Miike re-teams with longtime writing partner Masa Nakamura (Andromedia, The Bird People of China) for this Western inspired by Sergio Corbucci's violent 1966 classic Django. It's been hundreds of years since the Battle of Dannoura, yet the Genji and Heiki clans are still feuding. In this poor mountain town, there is rumored to be a great hidden treasure. Genji gang leader Yoshitsune is sure that his white-clad warriors will find the treasure first, but Kiyomori and his red-clothed Heike gang aren't about to walk away empty-handed. When a mysterious lone gunman with an incredibly fast trigger finger rolls into town, everyone wonders which gang he will join. As betrayal, deception, and cold-blooded murder become commonplace, the silence of this once-quiet mountain town will be broken by the piercing echo of gunfire and the air will become dense with the smell of death.

The previews made this seem like it would be a very funny spoof of spaghetti westerns but, no, not really funny. It's based more on the War of the Roses (the actual event, not the movie) and then thrown into a weird conglomeration of asian cinema and bad spaghetti westerns. It looks cool, but was so boring that he went to bed in the middle and I fell asleep. Maybe you have to REALLY like spaghetti westerns. I don't know.

I was immediately interested in this movie upon looking at it, and inevitabely, I took advantage of a bargain at a local store and just bought it. I am a big fan of Quentin Tarrentino too, and his involvement in it interested me too. I am not going to go into detail about what the movie is about, because you can just read the synopsis on the movie's main page for that. However, though I wasn't totally blown away by the movie, I thought that it was pretty good. I particularly liked seeing the fusing of the old west with some Japanese culture in it, and most of the acting, though a little of it was kind of sub par, was pretty good on the whole. Each of the events in the movie eventually builds up to one big shoot out at the end. All in all, I thought this movie was pretty engrossing. If you like westerns or even Japanese stuff, I would recommend at least giving this movie a watch and see what you think.
