(Gun)FIGHTS / (Lots of) BLOOD - 'Django: Unchained' delivers

by Bowie Ibarra

Quentin Tarantino's 'Django: Unchained' delivers the cruelty of pre-civil war America with a great story and outstanding acting.

The story revolves around the union of dentist cum bounty hunter Dr. King Schwartz (Christophger Waltz) with liberated slave Django (Jaime Foxx).  Schwartz uses Django's knowledge of several killers he is searching for to fetch their bounty.  When Schwartz discovers Django's wife has been sold away, he promises to find her with him.

The movie is another Tarantino masterpiece of action, violence, and respect to the movies that inspired it.  Django was an Italian spaghetti western from the seventies that spawned several sequels.  This movie follows in the tradition of the previous movies filmed decades earlier with its gritty western action and storyline.

Christopher Waltz delivers an amazing performance, as well as Foxx and DiCaprio.  The supporting cast is fantastic as well.  The film even features a cameo from the original Django, Franco Nero.  Tarantino also has a hilarious cameo that provides one of the biggest laughs of the film.  And Tarantino seemingly provides tribute to another classic film maker, Sam Peckinpah, in a big gunfight near the end.

All in all, its a great movie and approved!
