If you want a fast-paced film, this is it. If violence bothers you, it isn't for you. It's a film about a slave who is freed by a bounty hunter. You find that slavery and bounty hunting is pretty close. The ethnics are similar.
Both institutions are evil to the core.
Jamie Fox is very good in this film.
It's a play on grade B films a la Clint Eastwood westerns. The photography, violence, credits, music are similar.
You can call "Django Unchained" a western, except much of the action is taking place down in the deep south. This is where Jamie Foxx would like that. He plays a slave that was given his freedom and in exchanged of being a hired killer. If you ask me, I'd call it a job promotion. This is not Quentin Tarantino's best work, but still it's a good movie. Christoph Waltz gives another brillant performancew that could earn him another Oscar nomination. Oh yes, one word of warning; there are a lot of N word that are flying around the movie. Yes there are N words in "Pulp Fiction," "In the Heat of the Night," even in "To Kill a Mockingbird." Something you got to know. Another eason why I like the movie is that it will teach a nhew gernatiuon of filmgoers about the evils of slavery. I learn about slavery from "Roots" in 1977. I hope they will come away from an understanding about slavery.
Excellent acting and dialogue but may be a little too graphic for those sensitive to violence.
I thought this was a great movie. Go see it on the big screen.
