Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino's Western about a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) who becomes a brutal gun-for-hire. Working alongside a German dentist/bounty-hunter (Christoph Waltz in an Oscar-winning role), Django is determined to rescue his wife from a merciless plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Winner of Best Screenplay at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.

Bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz rescues Django from slavetraders in the hope he can identify a high-paying target. After assisting Schultz he is given his freedom, but Django - having revealed a great talent for bounty-hunting - stays with the good doctor to form a more permanent partnership. In return, Schultz will help in the mission to Mississippi to face plantation owner Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) and free Django's wife (Kerry Washington). Samuel L. Jackson co-stars as Candie's house slave Stephen, and the film's supporting roles and cameos include appearances by Don Johnson, Jonah Hill, James Remar and more.

Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Waltz) winner at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTA Awards 2013.

Tarantino does it again

Now, I don't normally like westerns but this one is a must see. Yes it's long but every minute is worth the watch. The humour and action scene is typical of Tarantino movies. Oh and the storyline is superb too.

DJUST AMAZING

One of Tarantino's best, I would happily see this again and again, which I think always speaks volumes about how entertaining a film really is. Absolute rollercoaster from beginning to end, keeps going when you think it'd be totally fine to end it. Created such an alive world of the film, with beautifully fleshed-out characters, beyond fitting score, mis en...

Enjoyable and worth attending, but unsurprisingly somewhat over the top, or is it that I just dont get Tarantino?

Shoot 'em up!

Loved it! This is the best movie I've seen in ages. I couldn't tell at times whether they were trying to be serious or funny, but I was entertained the whole way through regardless. Particularly loved the over-the-top blood that was everywhere.

WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR? ... Umm.. DENTIST?

Specialising in lead fillings. The humour sprinkled throughout Django is perhaps the most surprising aspect of Tarantino's film. From the implied, to the bawdy, to the downright Pythoneseque sequence where the vigilantes argue over the effectiveness of their sackcloth disguises, Django uses humour to both ease the tension and reinforce it. There has always...

Blood, sweat, gore and LOTS of humour.

An enjoyable tale and quite funny in parts. I think the use of the word "n****r" made it more amusing because it is such a taboo word today. Good on QT for keeping it real!

An immensely satisfying taste of antebellum empowerment packaged as spaghetti-Western homage.

Might be too much - and too bloody - for certain constitutions, but the rewards are plentiful. Be sure to hunt it down.

It is digressive, jokey, giddily brutal and ferociously profane. But it is also a troubling and important movie about slavery and racism.

Grandiose and pragmatic, Tarantino plays freely with implausibility, he gets his customers inside the tent and then gives them a carny show they're hardly prepared for. He is a consummate filmmaker.

Tarantino is a man unchained, creating his most articulate, intriguing, provoking, appalling, hilarious, exhilarating, scathing and downright entertaining film yet.

Tarantino injects the weighty material with so many jocular, startling and unexpected touches that it's constantly stimulating.

Tarantino's sure-footed, gorgeously shot, darkly funny Western starts strong and gains in momentum until a breathtaking climax that represents the apogee of his adventures in culture-mashing.
