Must See

In the typical Tarantino style, a re-imagined Django from classic Spaghetti westerns, rises to rescue his wife with the help of a German dentist/bounty hunter. If you can get past the buckets and sprays of blood then the gore is manageable. If not, be warned that this movie is filled with lots of dead bodies. The structure of the movie does not necessarily feel like a 3 Act story but instead a 2 Act which is actually normal for this director. Given that, the movie has a much different feel than studio movies but it has all the Blockbuster cast it could ever want. Will Smith was wanted to play the lead character, but I am glad he turned it down and it went to Jamie Foxx instead.
There were so many tense and great moments in the movie. However, there were also many scenes that could have used a bit more attention. And if Django does one more "look at how badass I am" thing, then the entire movie would be filled with one liners and strong walks in slow motion.
But in the end, you cheer ...(more)

But in the end, you cheer for the good guys and will walk away as if you too just freed yourself from whatever chains you had around you. (less)

'DJANGO UNCHAINED' is a kick-ass entertainer!

VISIT : http://Iamalekhya.blogspot.com

Like any other Tarantino film, it has a tinseled appeal and bold sentimentality, embroidered with mind-blowing acts from all its actors.

Set in the eighteenth-century era of the Deep South and Old West, the film trails an unbound slave (Jamie Foxx) who treks across the United States with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) on a task to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a harsh and alluring plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Unlike other Tarantino flicks, which are portrayed in chapters, Django Unchained has a linear narrative. It reliably rotates around the two characters, played by Foxx and Waltz, who share practical aims. With a runtime of quarter to three hours, the film could've been a dull watch, but the screenplay is so captivating that never do you comprehend the length. Tarantino gives you one attractive scene after the other, keeping you deeply absorbed in the whole drama. I...(more)

Unlike other Tarantino flicks, which are portrayed in chapters, Django Unchained has a linear narrative. It reliably rotates around the two characters, played by Foxx and Waltz, who share practical aims. With a runtime of quarter to three hours, the film could've been a dull watch, but the screenplay is so captivating that never do you comprehend the length. Tarantino gives you one attractive scene after the other, keeping you deeply absorbed in the whole drama. In addition to this, the humor and brazen-faced style is consistently upheld to make the proceedings even more delectable. The writing is immaculate, although, it isn't as shrewd as his preceding film, 'IngloriousBastards'. Each character is sketched so beautifully that it leaves a permanent mark on the audience.

There are scenes that make you laugh, like the one where in the middle of chasing Django and Dr. Schultz, the masked goons fight over the silly issue of who made such clumsy masks. In fact, Jamie Foxx's crude style and attitude, while shooting, or horse-riding, or even while just silently looking, are respectfully mirthful every single time. Then there are raw action scenes filled with blood and gore, and some disturbing depictions of slavery prevailing in the region during the era presented. It touches some really sensitive issues of slavery of the dark-skinned, albeit, upholding the playful flavor of the film.
Everything, right from the sets, to the costumes and dialogues seems absolutely authentic.

Now coming to the performances, since it's a Tarantino film, it goes without saying that the performances are impeccable. Jamie Foxx, Leonardo Dicaprio, Samuel Jackson, Kerry Washington and others are totally apt. But it's Christoph Waltz who shines the brightest. His demeanor is truly magnetic and dialogues, delightfully written as well as delivered. He truly deserves the Oscar he was awarded with.

Tout ensemble, Django Unchained is wildly extravagant, ferociously violent and outrageously entertaining. Those who hate blood gore and action might not relish it, but a "Must Watch" for all Tarantino fans!

Good

It is, to date, the best Tarrantino movie I've seen so far. His love for movies shines through in this one once again, it feels like a good old-time western, and yet a modern movie too.

The raid led by Don Johnson's character was hilarious.

An just when I thought the director had finally learned restraint, the blood started spraying across the screen.
I mean, I know it's Tarrantino and his trademarks are the abundant blood and guts and swear words, and he usually takes it too far for my taste, he did tune it down a bit in this film, and not all the violence and swearing felt like it was added for shock value, but had a place in the story.

So, I'm happy to say, this was finally a Tarrantino movie I liked.

"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of vengeance"

Plot:

In 1858 in the American South several male slaves are being driven by the Speck Brothers, Ace and Dicky. Among the shackled slaves is Django (Foxx), sold off and separated from his wife, Broomhilda (Washington). The Speck brothers are stopped by Dr. King Schultz (Waltz) , a German dentist and, unbeknownst to the brothers, a bounty hunter. Schultz asks to buy one of the slaves, but despite being rebuffed doesn't take no for an answer. He continues to prod and pry, angering the brothers. Tempers soon flare, and Ace, refusing to lower the shotgun leveled at Schultz, is shot dead. As soon as Dicky draws his pistol, Schultz shoots Dicky's horse in the head, the collapsing animal crushing the surviving brother's leg. While Dicky screams in pain in the background, Schultz interrogates Django as to the identity of the Brittle Brothers, and when he finds out that he can identify them, offers Django his freedom in exchange for help tracking them down. Django agrees and the pair toss the shackle keys to the other slaves and depart, with Schultz suggesting the slaves kill their tormentor and witness to gain their freedom. After executing the three Brittles, Django partners with Schultz through the Winter, becoming his apprentice. Upon being questioned by Django as to his motivation, Schultz explains that, being the first person he has ever given freedom to, he feels responsible for Django and is driven to help him in his quest to rescue Broomhilda.


Django, now fully trained, collects his first bounty. The pair travel to Mississippi, and Schultz uncovers the identity of Broomhilda's owner, Calvin Candie (DiCaprio), the alternately charming but brutal owner of Candyland, a plantation where slaves are forced to fight to the death in boxing matches called "Mandingo fights". Schultz expects Candie will not entertain offers for Broomhilda if they are forthright with their request, so they devise a ruse whereby they will purchase one of Candie's prized fighters for a "ridiculous offer", obtain Broomhilda as an accessory to the fighter, then disappear before the deal is finalized. Schultz and Django meet Candie at a club in Greenville and submit their offer. His greed tickled, Candie invites them to Candyland. At the plantation, Broomhilda is secretly debriefed on the plan, and during dinner, Schultz moves to the next step by offering to purchase Broomhilda with Candie's fighter.


While everyone is eating and talking, Candie's staunchly loyal senior house slave, Stephen (Jackson), becomes suspicious of Broomhilda and deduces that Django and Broomhilda know each other and that the sale of the Mandingo fighter is a distraction. Stephen alerts Candie, and an enraged Candie extorts the bounty hunters with Broomhilda's life for the complete bid amount. Schultz yields, and after the money is paid and the paperwork signed, Candie demands a handshake from Schultz to finalize the deal. Schultz, disgusted and mentally tired, kills Candie with a concealed Derringer. In retaliation, Candie's right hand and body guard Butch Pooch (Remar) kills Schultz before either Broomhilda or Django can react. A massive battle ensues in the mansion and Django kills many, including Pooch, but is forced to surrender when Broomhilda is taken hostage at gunpoint by Billy Crash (Goggins).


The next morning, Django, hanging inverted from a rafter completely naked, is kicked awake. Crash approaches with a red-hot knife to castrate him, but Stephen interrupts at the last moment and states that Django has been sold to a mine, where he will be worked to death. En route to the mine, Django proves to his escorts that he is a bounty hunter by showing them the handbill from his first kill as evidence, then tricks them into believing there is a very large bounty on a man back at Candyland and they will get a massive cut if Django is released. The moment the captors free and arm him, he shoots the group, takes their dynamite and rides back to Candyland.


Returning to the plantation, Django releases Broomhilda from her improvised cell. When Candie's mourners return from the funeral, Django reveals himself. In the final shootout, everyone is gunned down except for Cora, Sheba (whom Django allows to go free) and Stephen, who is shot by Django in the knees, disabling him. Django and Broomhilda watch from a distance as the mansion, filled with dynamite, explodes, then ride off into the night.
