About the Movie
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django promising to free him upon the capture of the Brittles - dead or alive. Also starring Leonardo Dicaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Django Unchained is Tarantino's most complete movie yet. It is also his most vital. His storytelling talents match the heft of the tale.
Fresh: A bloody masterpiece. Funny, Thrilling, cleverly structured.
Fresh: Tarantino is, in essence, a classicist who invests the bulk of his drama and tension in lengthy dialogue exchanges that are infinitely more compelling that his elongated sequences of cathartic violence.
Fresh: Impolitic though it might be to suggest it, there's something extremely satisfying about the violence here-though, for my money, it resides less in seeing these racist thugs get their comeuppance, than in the director's staging of it.
Meh…lotsa shooting, hits and misses
Whenever Christolph Waltz is on the screen the movie is brilliant. Whenever the eponymous Django (Foxx) is in charge the movie is a bloody cartoon. Usually you have to go to Chinese martial arts films to see such implausible battles where the hero overcomes ridiculous odds.
The use of many (MANY!) stars is cameos is entertaining and fun for any movie enthusiast.
Waltz is clever, the dialogue quick and entertaining — like the early scenes in Pulp Fiction. But Foxx tries to be a black steely-eyed Clint Eastwood — with superhuman shooting skills that would make Josey Wales run for cover.
And I get that Tarantino is trying to single-handedly re-write and simultaneously remedy the ills of history. First the Holocaust in Inglorious Basterds and now slavery in Django Unchained. I just think its heavy-handed and really slanted to portray every white American as this dastardly.
What’s next? Costner already did this in Dancing With Wolves… Look for the next Tarantino film to be a remake of West Side Story except that the Puerto Ricans emerge triumphant against despicable white kids.
Loved it. Seriously, loved it.
Every bit as stupid, superficial, sensationalistic and gory as you'd expect from Tarantino.
After all, the man has pretty much devoted his professional life to distracting viewers from his lack of depth with those traits…and he doesn't slack off here.
The very nice performance of Christoph Waltz earns the second star…he's the "conscience" of the film, in so far as it even has one.
Something the director himself seems not to possess.
