No Room to Die

No Room to Die (also known as A Noose for Django and Hanging for Django) is a 1969 Spaghetti Western starring Anthony Steffen, William Berger and Nicoletta Machiavelli. It addresses the issue of the smuggling of Mexicans across the border into America to be used as cheap labor in the post-Civil War period. The topic gives it a contemporary feel. This is one of the many to use the name Django in an effort to cash in on the popularity of the first Django film. I found it watchable, but the ending confused me. "You know what it's for." No, actually, I have no idea what it's for.

via youtube:

One reviewer on Fistful of Pasta calls it "a somewhat average affair", while another calls it "a highly entertaining Spaghetti Western starring two of the genre's greats." says the score is one of its main failings, and in closing says, "Ultimately then, No Room to Die is a film with some excellent features which is let down by a couple of major failings. It is decent fun on the whole...."
