After a very decent Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino amazes us with Django Unchained. This movie contains the same genius of its writer as 1994’s Pulp Fiction. Blood, violence and a lot of other things Tarantino claims to despise are found in Django Unchained, but afterall, this is what gives Tarantino movies their beauty.
The movie tells the story of a slave-turned-bounty hunter named Django (Jamie Foxx), who, with the help of his mentor, Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), sets off to find his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). The very promising cast, also featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson, did not disappoint. Christoph Waltz’ brilliant performance highlighted the awesomeness of his character, a very charming and dangerous German born bounty hunter. (Way better than The Green Hornet’s Chudnofsky)
The movie isn’t short (2h 45mins), but you enjoy every last minute of it and I couldn’t find any boring scenes. In fact, some of them were pure Tarantino genius.
Bottom line is, Django Unchained is a must watch movie, enjoyable to the very last second of it.
