Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Academy Award(R)-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(R)-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 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.

Generally, "Django Unchained" is a good story, but it's full of violence, nudity and fowl language.
The plot occurs just prior to the US Civil War and the backdrop is the American Slave Trade. So, immense cruelty is depicted throughout the show and, for me, this was tough to take.
I also didn't like the ""N" Word". Yet, it was casually-mentioned about 1,000 or more times. So, this, too, was tough, for me.
For those reasons, the nearly 3 hour-long film, for me, seemed a bit long.
Yet, I had to repeatedly remind myself that the story was about a different culture and, accordingly, I got the impression that Quentin Tarantino, who wrote and directed the movie, had based it on substantial research. So, I think the story probably came close to the truth about the mistreatment of Blacks, during that period.
In the film, Leonardo DiCaprio's obnoxious White character asked an interesting question. Referring to the Black slaves, he queried: "Why don't they kill us?"
"Probably for the same reason why many Jews passively went to their deaths, in Nazi Germany", I thought; their situation was so bad, they just could not believe it.
Others likely suffered from Stockholm Syndrome or learned to survive, etc.
No doubt, however, some Blacks did kill or tried to kill Whites.
The gore might have been exaggerated. Some curse words could have been too modern, but all the actors did great acting and the costumes, sets, etc. seemed authentic.
So, "Django Unchained" was a good, but 'tough-to-take' movie.
Incidentally, I'm White, too.
scene with Dogs, would make anyone uneasy, and very queasy, but the most shocking aspect of this is,
is the part played by “Samuel L. Jackson” a man who’s determination to keep his life as comfortable as he
could, an the dedication to his master is unprecedented beyond believe, it’s like he lost all hope for himself
an his fellow slaves, I have a new found love for “Leonardo Dicaprio” a guy I never like, until I saw Blood Diamond”
an Aviator” watching the terror in his eyes playing Calvin Candie” was most engrossing,
Christoph Waltz” you are amazing to watch in your craft, and the naked Kerry Washington, um yum???

I Think I’m Filled After Watching This...Django.
Seeing Leonardo DiCaprio in a Tarantino movie: the best thing I could have hoped for. The director even makes a few jokes at the expense of the KKK, in the form of a brilliant guest-star (not gonna say who for those who've yet to watch the film)...
In this short review, I would love to delve into the specifics of the film, but it's almost impossible for me to let you in on this experience. Tarantino's his own man, and his style is one that's either loved or hated.
A friend of mine, who's a WW2 buff (he read on the subject like you couldn't believe), actually hated Inglourious... and I don't mean "didn't like"... I mean he HATED it. So I guess haters are going to hate, but this take from Tarantino on the old Western is definitely worth watching over and over again. I know I will.
Tarantino NEVER disappointed me (except with Death Proof, but that's another story) and Django Unchained worked for me every step of the way. 165 minutes is a hell of a long movie (The Dark Knight Rises' exact length), but like Inglourious, it goes by so fast you wish you could watch it again (if it weren't already so late in my case).
