Truly superb film!
Verified purchase
I saw the trailers at the time and I do like stories about slaves getting one up on their situation and coming out on top but I never had time to get along to see it. I now wish I had made the effort! It's an absolutely superb film!

Essentially a German bounty hunter sunddenly comes out of nowhere, releases a group of slaves and takes one of them, the titular hero, along with him as the bounty hunter has to try to find someone to collect on. Django makes a deal to help the bounty hunter so long as the bounty hunter agrees to help Django find his wife, still held captive on a plantation in Mississipi.

There are some stunning performances from all concerned, the story has the usual wicked sense of humour that all Tarrantino films have but in this case the seriousness of the subject matter of slavery is respected and Tarrantino doesn't overdo it. The part with the KKK and their bags is obviously taking a serious dig at the stupidity of white supremicists and it's absolutely hilarious.

The best part has to be as Django and Schultz enter the the lair of Mr Candie, a dyed-in-the-wool white supremicist, racist psychopath. Samuel Jackson as the "uncle tom" character, servile and lickspittle to DiCaprio's Candie is brilliant, you just instantly hate Jackson's character and you get the feeling Jackson loves every minute of it knowing everyone will hate his character.

DiCaprio puts in a wonderful performance as the utterly vile Mr Candie, a prententious racist slave owner and there's a rather nasty undercurrent of incest hinted at in his rather overenthusiastic affection for his sister, as if DiCaprio's character wasn't vile enough!

The stars of the show are definietly Foxx and Waltz, the character's affection one another's well being really comes out and you truly believe they care deeply about each other, the arrangement isn't just one of convinience, not something you can just write in a script and hope it works, it takes a special kind of actor to make it come to life.

I loved every minute of this film and I can't wait to watch it again and start looking for the little things I missed the first time through.

A Modern Classic, yet borrowed ideas from other classics.

I have to say this is easily Quentin Tarantino’s best film. It is full-fat violence, themes, screenplay, technical and casting. It is a shocking, sickening depiction of slavery as it rightfully should be. The Black hero-vigilante Django played by Jamie Foxx is a masterful performance, beating Franco Nero’s (who also appears in this version) original portrayal of the character.

There are certain things taken from John Jakes’ famous North & South series which Tarantino has obviously seen and loved, and some deserve a mention, for example, Leonardo Di Caprio’s bloody hand with the planter family ring is a near copy of the scene with David Carradine’s bloody hand with the ring (who would later star in Kill Bill). Di Caprio’s performance is nearly identical to both Swayze’s and Carradine’s depiction of the Old Southern Gentleman.
An aged Lewis Smith appears Django Unchained, he brandishes his beloved Bowie knife as a little nod to the North & South television series, the knife is central to his character.
Don Johnson who appears in John Jakes’ The Rebels as part of the planter aristocracy almost reprises the same role as “Big Daddy” in Django Unchained.

Bloody, funny & heroic
Verified purchase
I am not usually a fan of Quentin T (and he acts in this & proves to me his talent is better placed in directing) but secretly love the wilful bloodshed his films bring. There's not as much in this one perhaps, but its enough of a signature & does add to the intensity of the story. I enjoy Jamie Foxx as an actor & he is brilliant in his role. Leonardo is completely awesome - a character so despicable you admire his arrogance! And the wonderful, truly mixed-up Dr. And with a German twist, some love interest (not of the usual vein, I hasten to add) this film is AWESOME. Loved, loved, loved this film. So glad I bought it, as I will watch it again.

An instant classic!

Django Unchained is one of my favourite movies of all time. Foxx gives an electric performance as slave turned free man Django, who teams up with Dr King Schultz, played by Christophe Waltz, to hunt down criminals in a bid to find his wife, to whom he was separated from many years ago. This movie is packed with action and emotion, possibly Tarentino's best movie!

What a lovely film. A little like a fairytale slavery movies. I adored it. They should do animated slavery Disney animations or African princess too. The other cultures have already been noticed and explored.

That black girl could have been me in America. I swear.

But the django hes a black Prince charming I adored it. ❤️

Excellent fun and reveals a few truths if you are paying attention
Verified purchase
In truth the film is really about the archetypal 'Dr Schultz', who wanders America exploiting the murderous abilities his 'free' slave Django.

Dr Schultz uses Django and the white American legal system against the founding stock in order to murder thier people in cowardly ways while he grows rich. This all comes crashing down at the end of the film, as his trickery finally fails, he loses his ill begotten riches and the realisation that he has been found out causes him to take action that effectively takes his own life. The gore is over the top, the script is self agrandising for the chosen and hateful towards the usual; it is your standard tarantino entertainment. I loved every minute of it. It reveals truth over and over and will have you laugh out loud many times.

5 stars for this film especially applies to the later part of the film with one scene in particular - the best is towards the end, with the introduction of DiCaprio and Jackson, both of whom are the stars of the show and allow one to partially forgive exposure to the seemingly endless repulsive trickery of the main character, and cowardly murders of Django that encompass the first half of the film.

For the acting of DiCaprio and Jackson this film is worth 5 stars; the commitment of DiCaprio is something quite extraordinary to witness and the comedic value of Jackson is excellent. The dinner scene was one of the most entertaining things I have had the pleasure of watching from a Holywood production. Bravo.

Wonderful

While I enjoyed The Hateful Eight, this is a far superior movie. The acting is stellar and everyone is convincing in their role.
It's easy to see the westerns that inspired this movie, and yet it never seems cliched at all.
Of course, this a Tarantino film, so it's not entirely realistic but it is a perfect reflection of the movies that came before it; managing to pay homage and be original at the same time.
Even the fake blood is perfect.
A classic already, you need to see this if you haven't already. And if you have then you probably need to see it again.

If you like Q T style you won't be disappointed. This bounty hunter cowboy movie with dark humour and shocking detailed twists throughout will leave you wondering what will happen to the main character J Fox after the credits have rolled. The whole picture gives you a sense of reality and jabs away at all your emotions with the worst being primal fear. Whilst some scenes are uncomfortable to watch, one gets a sense of the accuracy in the detail for these times in our history. Acting by Jamie Fox, Leanardo Decaprio and Samuel L Jackson is flawless and captivating. You will lose yourself in the reality and violence in this film and be routing and cheering for the lead character JF long before the end.
