Set in the South two years before the Civil War, "Django Unchained" stars Academy Award®-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®-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 one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), 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...

This film was great! Spike Lee needs to find a large enough bag of dicks to choke on. He's just been using his argument against this film to generate publicity for himself, as he hasn't made a watchable film in years and is jealous of the attention any other director receives. Feel free to discuss!!

Lord Loki has spoken

this movie was not great it was entertaining but almost all of jamies kills was cartoonish at best and the horse break dancing at the end was straight garbage smh other tarrentio films were way better

@Kingpen266: The horse wasn't 'break dancing' at the the end of the film. They were simply horse tricks that you would see at ANY horse show conducted by High Society types. Yes it was corny, I agree, but to call it break dancing is a blatant insult. Had the rider been of another ethnic background, I highly doubt you'd refer to it as 'break dancing'.

@Loki: I also agree that Spike Lee needs to back seat his criticisms. His beef with Tarantino has played out long enough.

I loved this movie. Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L Jackson, and Leonardo Dicaprio gave great performances. I was surprised at how well Leo played a villain. The funniest scene in the entire movie was the "KKK" even though they weren't the KKK.

great movie, one of the years best. DiCaprio was amazing and gave Bardem a run for his money as far as best villain of the year

@Kingpen: I agree, this is definitely not Tarantino's best. I wouldn't put it down to complete garbage, because I found it entertaining. Nevertheless, it did fall short in some places. Especially towards the end. It became too campy and cartoon like indeed. Though, I thought it was better than Inglorious Bastards. It seems Tarantino has fallen from grace ever since Pulp. To me, his work has been inconsistent.
