Considering the movie uses the "N" word more than a mob movie uses "MF", this one could be uncomfortable for some. The flow is choppy at best and the beginning, middle and end really are quick, even though the length is nominal. The acting is acceptable and I am confident no one will be nominated for anything. Having said all the highlights, if you like the Tarantino blood and splatter you will get a kick out of the movie. Otherwise, you will leave like me, knowing you will not buy the DVD.

Tarantino has done it again! If you liked or loved unglorious bastards, you'll love Django. In my opinion Django is funnier and a little more suspenseful. I've read some reviews in which people where offended by the movie's depiction of slaves and it's use of the "N" word. I'm a minority and have personally experienced racism in my life as a young youth. I can tell you Django doesn't regress BlackPeople 100 years as stated in some reviews. The movies setting is set in1865 and racism and slavery was a daily part of life and now part of our nations history.
It's a MOVIE AND A REALLY ENTERTAINING MOVIE AT THAT. DJANGO IS MY NEW SUPERHERO.

I didn't really care for the movie. I've never really been a fan of Quentin Tarantino's movies anyway except for Kill Bill 1 and 2. Its not horrible but I wish I had waited until DVD. Too long to sit through in a theater. The blood was over the top as usual with his movies. There were some parts that made me laugh but mostly I just wanted to close my eyes during certain scenes and wait for them to be over.

Our only question when we saw this movie was, " Why would Jamie Fox and Leonardo DiCaprio be in this extremely violent movie, even for Quentin Tarantino standards." We were very uncomfortable with the frequent use racial slurs.
Save your money and don't go.! Not suitable for anyone our opinion!

After the 2 hour mark, the movie really begins to pander. It really could've been great, but the editing must have just taken the night off. There were at least 5-6 scenes that had NOTHING to do with the movie ultimately took away from the forward progress of the storyline.
Great film-making and definitely entertaining... but that was ridiculously too long.
