Django Unchained

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

    Pros:

    Great performances by the actors.

    Fresh storyline.

    Cons:

    Goes overtime with some scenes dragged out.

    A lot of violence.

    Overall:

    This movie will be added to the classic movies made by Tarantino if not the best one yet. With great performances by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson, how could it not be? While it is hard to pick what genre this movie should fit into as it could be placed into action, drama, western or comedy. There are a lot of moments throughout the movie that fit into all these categories.

    From the heartache of slavery, action of gunfights to the hilarious moments on how the KKK was started. As always there is also a lot of violence and bloodshed moments throughout that will make the most squeamish watchers look away. It does have some moments that stretch it out a bit far that make it run over two and a half hours.

    The story and performances will amaze throughout from everyone involved with even Tarantino making a cameo performance with a bad South African (or was it supposed to be Australian?) accent. Definitely one to watch.
