The basic concept of an Asian Western really kinda worked for me at first. I still haven't watched it yet but I was entertaining a guest earlier, wanted to show the special features I discussed for 18 Year Old Virgin
and just a bit after that I read the bio for Sukiyaki Western Django
...and it sounds suspiciously like a Bruce Willis film I saw once. Set in the 1920's, or thereabouts, Willis goes to town and works for one gang family but then brings about a full fledged gangwar with the other major gang in town. Can't remember the name offhand but it also starred Christopher Walken.
The description for Sukiyaki Western Django
is this: 2 clans battle for a legendary treasure hidden in a desolate mountain town. One day, a lone gunman with incredible shooting skills drifts into town. The 2 clans try to woo the lone gunman to their side, but he has ulterior motives. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire, and love collide as the situation erupts into a final explosive showdown...
...which minus the location switch and the combatants, is idental to that film I can't remember the name of.
Makes me wonder if this is a remake of that film or if they both are remakes of something else.( after having watched the movieCollapse )
I usually don't start to write these posts up before I actually watch them but these were unusual circumstances. Definitely recommend that anyone reading this goes and sees this movie if they haven't already.
Hell, I may have to buy it!
