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.

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.

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!

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.
