    This was such an awesome film and i highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film is outrageous and extremely entertaining, it is also thoughtful and reminds us of horrors of slavery. The film is very violent and has a lot of bloodshed so if you do not like that, I suggest seeing a different film. I loved that Tarantino made the film not only ironic but also funny, he just can’t help himself, entertaining is in his blood and I am very happy it is. The performances in the film were amazing as well, I am not a big fan of Jamie Fox but the dude is talented and I can’t deny that. Overall, if you are alright with gore and lots and lots of blood, then you will enjoy watching this film immensely.

    This bad movie is too long and too violent. Save your money and avoid the gore like a father being shot with a rifle in front of a child by Django. No one applauded this film! This is a bad movie. Don't even rent it.

    With our society in the state that it is in now, I believe producers like Tarantino, needs to take a step back and instead of putting all of that talent and energy into cruel violence, why not redirect it into some kind of beneficial goodness.

    It would take a big fella to do this, "evil is so much more tempting", bit it might start to sway the pendulum in the other, much needed direction. Enough said!

    Unbelievably violent movie. I'm sorry but it was the worst movie I've seen before. I should've know before I watch. How many people were killed in the movie? I can't believe it. I closed my eyes most of time and we got out from the theater. I was having the best Christmas ever but it ruined. You should think before you go to the theater.

    If you are a fan of Tarantino’s films then you will absolutely love this film, if you are not, well you will find the film to be too long and way too violent. I have seen all of Tarantino’s films and even though I think he is a very talented individual, I always find his films to be too violent for my taste. The film is really no different from all of his other movies, he mixed up genres and stylized violence. I also thought that the film was just way too long, I was really exhausted from watching it and i do not see any reason why the film needed to be this long. The monologues in the film are excellent but again way too lengthy, I was not surprised by that, Tarantino loves his monologues. Overall, Tarantino fans might hate me for saying this, but i found this film to be just alright, I was not blown away and the film did not live up to my expectations.

    I am a huge fan of Tarantino films and I was waiting for this film to come out for so long. I rewatched all of his previous films and got myself ready for this one. I am glad to say that I was not disappointed, the film lived up to my expectations and actually surpassed them. Tarantino incorporated a lot of stuff from his previous films into this one and this is a film that is rooted to the atmosphere of spaghetti westerns, but true to Tarantino form, feels like a genre film unto itself. The characters in the film were awesome and the dialogue was amazing as usual, I was so happy at the end of this film. Like usual there is a lot of violence in the film so if you are not a fan of that, i recommend you see a different film. Overall, I think this film was very entertaining and smart and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters.

    This movie is a MUST SEE!!! Seriously, you guys cannot imagine just how totes awesome this movie is! If you like Tarantino movies, then you cannot miss this. Jamir Foxx plays the main character Django who strikes a deal with a bounty hunter who is looking for the former masters of Django. Django agrees to help him if he the bounty hunter will help him track down his wife Broomhilda who was sold as a slave years ago. They end up in a plantation owned by Calvin Candie (played by Leo) who is known as Mr. Candyland. All the acting in the movie is just superb, and I am sure every one of the major leads will be getting nominations for their work. Leonardo has never been better, and ditto Jamie Foxx. But Christoph Waltz is the best - that guy can do anything. He is just da bomb. I hope that this movie is a superhit because Tarantino knows how to make movies like no one else can.

    To be perfectly frank, I was expecting this movie to be little more than action and bloody gore like most Tarantino movies are. I get that his movies are thrilling as revenge fantasies, but they are often just gorey for gore's sake, I feel. This one, however, is hard not to want to cheer along with because it's about a former slave who is on the search for his wife whom he lost to the slave trade years ago. It's like an Odyssey but set in the Civil War era. Jamie Foxx is very good in this, but Christoph Waltz walks away with the movie as he always does. Leonardo DiCaprio (in a role I hear he did for free) is exceptional. In fact, I think this may be his best work to date, he's just superb. Ditto Kerry Washington who plays Broomhilda to the hilt. I love the way she underplayed her character. This movie is good, and would have been much better if it were less bloody.

    Last night I noticed that Twitter was abuzz with Spike Lee’s “observation” that Django Unchained was about the “holocaust” endured by his ancestors. He criticized the movie for glamorizing the centuries of slaughter endured by slaves in America . . . even though he had not seen the film. All of this was right before I stepped into the screening of Tarantino’s latest revenge fantasy starring Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Christoph Waltz.

    To be perfectly frank, I think Lee is right, but that discussion is one I will leave to the social critics and historians who will argue over whether Tarantino has done a disservice to the true meaning of the legacy of slavery in the United States. On its own terms as both a movie and a work of art, however, there can be little doubt that Django Unchained is one helluva piece of entertainment. Part love story, part action thriller, and part historical epic, this is a movie that deserves – nee, demands – to be seen.

    The story begins two years before the Civil War when a slave named Django (Foxx) is recruited by a German bounty hunter named Dr. King Schultz (played by the amazing Christoph Waltz – and no, I don’t know if the name “Dr. King” is an obvious pun or not) who is seeking out Django’s former owners. Django agrees to help Schultz if he helps him track down his beloved wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) who was sold in the slave trade long ago. Their journey ultimately takes them to a plantation known as “Candyland”, the home of the famous Calvin Candie (DiCaprio) where, to put it mildly, all Hell breaks loose.

    Like all Tarantino movies, much of the build up exists only for the main characters to exact their revenge. You won’t be surprised that they get what they want – you just might squirm in your seat as you watch them slice, dice, and shoot their way to justice. There are one too many monologues in the movie than I would have liked (Tarantino is not known for his subtlety) but he basically makes the very broad point that Slavery is Bad and Love Conquers All. In the end, you’ll be exhausted by nearly three hours of bloodlust and revenge, but it’s not a movie you’ll forget any time soon.
