Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
Once you get past the question of why someone would make a movie this artificial in the first place and move on to the answer (purely for the hell of it), Sukiyaki Western Django is a blood-drenched, dynamite, often hilarious and uniquely weird big-screen entertainment.

TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
The ideal viewer is a Miike fan...You know who you are.

Film Threat - Unnamed
While it is a glossy crowd pleaser, it still has a few typically off the wall, classic Miike touches.
67
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Loses some of its appeal once the novelty of Miike's conceptual shenanigans wears off.
60
Village Voice - Unnamed
This delirious spaghetti eastern could only have come from the boiling brain of Takashi Miike, the prolific Japanese auteur whose spectacularly uneven films account for the lion's share of the past decade's most utterly batshit movie moments.

Sukiyaki Western Django (2007)



Several hundred years after the Battle of Dannoura, the Genji and Heike clans face off again in a poor mountain town with a buried treasure legend. A revolver-wielding stranger, a lone gunman, burdened with emotional scars and blessed with incredible skill, drifts into town and crosses paths with two warring clans who are both on the hunt for a hidden treasure in a remote western town. Knowing his services are valuable to either side, he offers himself to the clan who will offer up the largest share of the wealth. Yoshitsune commands his Genji gang in white while Kiyomori leads his Heike gang in red. Expectations collide as the key players wonder which gang the gunman will join. Dirty tricks, betrayal, desire and finally, love, get jumbled together, as the situation erupts into a showdown.
