This film is a sadistic exhibition of gratuitous violence, packaged in a macabre and ghoulish manner and delivered to an audience under the guise of entertainment. The coldness of its long series of gruesome murders, coupled with the obvious attempt at mocking the ugliness of slavery, combined to have utterly disgusted this viewer. While accustomed to Tarantino's genre and bearing no illusions at what to expect in terms of violent content going in, even so, I found this film was violent and ugly on a level far removed from the physical, much unlike the dark comedic emphasis present in Tarantino’s “Machete.” Instead this one was just gruesome, physically and morally, with nearly nothing to offer in entertainment value to any normal person. This one is more or less a type of blood porn, far uglier and deviant than your typical ‘slasher’ fare. Save your money. If this sort of vicarious experience entertains you, it might be wise to seek the help of a mental health professional.

Django (The D is Silent) was excellent. The story, the acting, the filiming were all top shelf and perfectly Tarantino! This is the best Tarantino movie yet and the cast was over the top good. This movie deserves recognition and Tarantino deserves an award. Great job QT!

I just saw this movie today and I will have to say that it was pretty good. This is a very long movie about 2.5 hours and five minutes long. I would recommand that you don't drink before the movie because you will have to go to the bathroom. The only thing i will say is that the shooting part was a little to long for me. But other then that it was a good moive. Critic was saying that they using the N word alot in this movie but I don't hear it much as they was saying.

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!

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!
