I suppose I should have known better considering the director. For me the movie was unnecessarily gruesome and I really have a hard time understanding peoples desire for such violent films. In my opinion much more could have been done with this intriguing story line and stellar cast of characters. Waltz's performance was captivating while Foxx fell flat for me. Less blood with a little more story line would have gone a long way for me.

The trailer did this movie no justice. We went in to see this movie with an entire different outlook on what to expect. It was totally a must see movie. Jamiee Foxx & Kerry Washington were amazing. Tarantino is the best director, DiCaprio is amazing as is Don Johnson. This a definate Oscar nominee. Everyone must see & a definate DVD collector.

A must see. People are going to love it, or they're really going to take offense to it. I'm new to the Tarantino-eque movie, so I was not prepared for all the killing, blood and gore. That aside, the acting was just phenomenal. Yes, the n-word is said hundreds of times. Yes, there are intense scenes of whipping and killing. The understanding has to be there that this is supposed to be a depiction of of what it was like in the 1800s. It isn't the be all, end all. It sure is entertaining. Oh, and the soundtrack really adds that extra umph to the film!

Funny, great acting, a spaghetti western,with a few surprises. A Western which takes in pre Civil War South, where the bad guys get their due. The audience loved it and applauded at the end.

Awesome performances, great plot twists, lots of action. Characters were a little cartoony and one dimensional, at times, but when they were, they were funny. So far, friends and family from ages 18 to 60 have loved it!
