Movie Review: Django Unchained

In true Quentin Tarantino tradition, Django will mesmerize you with the dialogues, the actors, the shocking raw action, the atmosphere, the setting - it just draws you in, and never lets go, staying with you long after the movie credits have begun rolling.

Set in Southern United States two years before the Civil War in the 1850s, Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave who is contacted by the German bounty hunter Dr. Schultz (Christoph Waltz in an amazing role, reminiscent of his character in Basterds), and given an offer to partner in his "business". Schultz is after the deadly Brittle brothers, and only Django can help identify them. Meanwhile, Django remains focused on finding and rescuing his wife, Broomhilda, who was taken from him and sold as a slave on another plantation a long time ago.

Their audacious plan seems to be working, until they arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave.

Things quickly turn bloody, it will be a deadly fight to the finish.

An absolutely must-see, but not for the faint-hearted. And for Tarantino fans, soak in every moment!
