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!

Yes it's violent, but this is Tarentino at his best. The constant sense of outrage at the behaviors of the period driven characters is perfectly tempered by the absurdity of their beliefs and actions. The emotional whipsaw of hilarity; then violence and sometimes violence AS hilarity was nothing short of genius. Remember how conflicted we all felt watching the unhinged; unapologetic violence of Pulp Fiction while laughing so hard it left us dazed and confused? Well Django is an all-out thrill ride that demands you pay attention to the incredible injustice that was and in all to many instances, still is rampant. Anyone upset by the 100+ utterances of the "N" word-trust me; it's use is more than balanced by the sheer ignorance and ineptitude written into the character portrayal of the slave owners and those who supported the institution. This is the most fun I've had at a movie all year. What a way to end or start the year. See this movie; early and often! Thanks Quentin.

Typical Tarrantino film. Lots of blood, long and funny to some but stupid to others! Will not see it again. Didn't hold a candle to Pulp Fiction and can't imagine it being nominated for any award!

Excellent movie. Nothing less from a Quentin film. Tough, sentimental, with a splash of funny. All of the actors were on point. Not really for young kids. The movie is long but will keep your interest. The ending was refreshing like no other...BRAVO!

Django Unchained - cast well and superb acting, however it could have had 200-300 less N Bombs. Gunfight, N-Bomb, N-Bomb, Gunfight, N-Bomb. Tarantino is obsessed w/N-Bombs. Strike 1. After Inglorious Bastards "Nazi Hunter"... now he has a Slave turned Bounty Hunter movie. I was curious to see how this was accomplished and found he's defined a new genre: Retroactive Politically Correct Revenge flicks. If that's your thing - check it out, otherwise you can skip this one.
