Django Unchained is about a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx), whose fate is freed by Dr. King Schultz (Christopher Waltz) in his pursuit of his targets. Through his journey, Django learned a great deal from Dr. King which includes weaponry skill and art of conversing. Eventually, they partner up as duo bounty hunters. After they completed a series of jobs together, Dr. King would assist Django to locate his wife. That is where Leonardo DiCaprio and Sumuel L. Jackson come in to play as Mr. Candie and Stephen the epic boss.
Django Unchained is an amazing movie especially for a person who doesn’t like the Western Texas Cowboy genre. I’ve never like any movie with western Texas cowboy setting, not even Brokeback Mountain. This is probably the first. I love the acting of all the main characters in the film. Christopher Walt did such a great job in portraying Dr. King’s intellectual humor and sophistication. And there is my favorite cast, Leonardo DiCaprio, who literally made me love a villain. As good as he was, I find that Leo was so much into character and very much in control of it and put in improvisation to improve his character. He really radiates Mr. Candie’s presence and eminently cunning and ruthless nature of the man.
I was engrossed in the movie that I didn’t even realized that the movie was almost 3 hrs long. Usually, for an average rated movie, I’d start feeling bored and finding it draggy once it passes the 2 hr mark. That’s definitely not the case with Django. Another masterpiece from Quentin Tarantino. One of the best movies of the year.
