No Offense: But It Would Have Been Better If They'd Left Django Chained.
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.
