In 1858, bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) frees a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) to help him track down three outlaw brothers. The pair partner up, then conspire to rescue Django’s wife (Washington) from a plantation owner (DiCaprio).
Django Unchained is stylish, funny, brutal, superbly-acted, and wonderfully written western Movie. It’s a long film, almost 3hrs, but it’s also the rare long film that never really feels its length. It tells its story in the time it takes to tell it, without any scenes feeling like they are unnecessary. Jamie Foxx is a perfect fit for the role of a quiet and dangerous character, but he is lost in film with all best acting around him from the supporting cast of Christoph Waltz ,DiCaprio, and Samuel L. Jackson .( Christoph Waltz’s winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor”). Christoph Waltz’s as a smooth-talking German bounty hunter, breezes into the movie and dominates as a leader until DiCaprio sweeps it away from him when is character comes in. Samuel L. Jackson act’s brilliantly as the scheming “house slave” Stephen.
Tarantino’s films have a complicated relationship with violence. He enjoys bloody revenge Splattering on screen and DJANGO UNCHAINED is no different. But none of us will ever be able to watch a western movie in the same way ever again after Django Unchained.
I give it 8/10
