Excerpt: Quentin Tarantino once again delivers the same movie he has been making over and over again for years, this one is set in the southern United States just before the Civil War- but the song remains the same. That is not to say its a bad song, just nothing original. The movie features the expected brutal graphic violence and long dialogue sequences, and of course a complete lack of any sustained action sequences.
Excerpt: Directed by Quentin Tarantino Starring Jamie Fox, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo Dicaprio 3/4 The D-sign is here. All time classics of Tarantino give everyone a feeling that his movies are out of time. Django here is the story that sets still further into the 18th century. Tarantino knows what to give in the film. The bloody gun shots, impromptu shoot outs and technically smart camera zooming that give an edge to the film.
Excerpt: I really don't understand why this movie have received the attention it has. The acting is acceptable, within the limits of the screenplay but the characters are all caricatures and either painfully unrealistic or relatively wooden. The story had potential but the implementation was simply cartoonish. In this case, the fault appears to fall on the writer and director.
Excerpt: I'm sure to go to hell for watching this movie. Quentin Tarantino is my least favorite director, but I love movies and force my husband to watch over a hundred movies per year. He loves Tarantino, so I swallow my disgust and watch movies like Django Unchained and Kill Bill and all the rest of his collection. Maybe I'm warming up to the director because I didn't think it was that bad. It was funny, dark, bloody, and it had a good ending...when it finally did end.
Summary: not quite what i expected more of a spike lee movie than tarrentino. very talky talky and not much action.or what you would expect from tarentino. Leonardo de caprio was good but he was hardly in it much. chrispther waltz was brilliant . ok movie/good but overated it seems. why didn't they just offer the cash for the girl and save a lot of hassle. they had the money.. bit of a silly idear that..
Excerpt: Quentin Tarantino is a special kind of director. The man knows what he is and stays true to his vision, in every film, giving audiences the good and the bad of his talents. He is a smart writer, a student of character, and an artistic visionary, but also a rampant egotist and somewhat of a sadist. These qualities are often on full display in his films, but no more so than in Django Unchained.
Excerpt: By now, you should know what to expect when coming in to a Quentin Tarantion film: snappy dialogue, awesome music, gobs of blood and (lately) history turned on its ear. Django Unchained takes a classic spaghetti western, mixes it with an action/revenge theme - along with many memorable and excellent characters - and the result is a film that oozes cool while remaining true to its roots.

Conclusion: Nothing to do with the original Django but still it's enjoyable, with Tarentino's usual mix of comedy and gore and some great characters Django is bought out of slavery and sets out to find the love of his life who was taken away and also sold into slavery
