Storyline Heading
Set in the South two years before the Civil War, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz. Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles - dead or alive. Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago. Django and Schultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie, the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen, Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Western - Like Quentin Tarantino's other work, this western is more talk than action, but when there is action, it is brutal and bloody. Jamie Foxx plays the title character, but co-star Christoph Waltz gets most of the talking. Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, and Kerry Washington have distinctly supporting roles. The nearly three hour run time may be an issue for some viewers. Constant language plus bloody violence and adult themes make the film distinctly not for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...a great way to spend nearly three hours in a movie theater. Most people will leave with a smile and those who don't probably should have gone to see something softer in the first place.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good There's an epic spaghetti Western feel to Quentin Tarantino's latest action/comedy/romance hybrid that is by turns dazzling, daring, gruesome and astonishingly funny.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average There's an infectious, unfettered fearlessness to "Django Unchained" that makes it enormous fun to watch, but even the most soaring ode to liberation can benefit from some restraint.

NY Post Full Review
Good "Django Unchained" might have been a revelation in 2005. But after Quentin Tarantino and others have spent years spoofing '60s and '70s genre movies, this mock spaghetti Western tastes like it came out of the microwave.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 30 moviegoers:
So many movies come out at the same time around Christmas that we weren't able to collect as many reviews as we would have liked to collect. Fortunately, the few reviews we were able to collect are all very high. It's easy to see that "Django Unchained" is a movie not to be missed! Be aware, this is a Quentin Tarantino film so it is very violent and bloody. Be sure to check our content information.
