Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Nel Cimitero di Tucson – A timeless classic from Reverberi duo.
2) A perfect prequel to the original movie ; especially the hangman sub-plot.
3) Terence Hill perfectly played the part maybe better than Franco Nero
4) Cinematography – the wagon chase scene, the opening fist fight
5) The machine gun massacre climax – we all knew what Django was hiding in that coffin from the very first minute but the anticipation is insane.
