      I recently went to the cinema to see Django Unchained - having already seen the trailer, I was quite fascinated by it.

      I must say that it was money well spent. The movie is fairly long (almost three hours), but it keeps you alert, thanks to its plot, its music and most of all the actors, who all did a beautiful job, especially Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx.

      It focuses on the eponymous character Django, played by Foxx, and his transformation from slave to bounty hunter to rescuer of his wife from


      the hands of an infamous Mississippi plantation owner, Calvin Candie, played by DiCaprio. Django is helped in his adventure by German bounty hunter, Dr King Shultz, interpreted by Waltz.

      I would say that I most appreciated the acting, the action, some of the songs; also some of the dialogue exhibits flashes of genius.

      The characters themselves are quite despicable. The only one who has some redeeming qualities is the German doctor, who is somehow touched by Django’s story and decides to help him. He is the one who proves to be the most human of the bunch, even though he himself kills people for a living, not showing any regret or hesitation, all based on a piece of paper which gives him the right to kill.

      There is one key scene in the movie, when a slave from Candie’s plantation is caught while trying to escape, and Shultz wants to save him by paying 50O dollars to Candie, but Django, who is at this point in the movie a free man and Shultz’s associate, thinks the slave doesn’t deserve the money. He is so cold-blooded it’s chilling. As a result, Candie punishes ...

      the slave, leaving him to be torn apart alive by a pack of angry dogs.

      If up to this point I still rooted for Django, this really made me change my mind. I would say that after this scene, I did not care whether he managed to free his wife or not, or whether he died or not.

      There are some scenes I found funny in the movie - humor springs a lot from the novelty of Django’s new-found social status. He’s a free black man in a South full of slaves treated like they’re worth

      nothing. And the very defiant Dr Shultz gets the most pleasure from imposing his new friend’s position to all the puzzled Southerners, be them free men or slaves.

      The movie is impregnated with Tarantino’s kitchy style, and by the end is full of unnecessary gore and seems a bit overlong.

      Also some of the music is quite shockingly out of place: rap music half-way through the film. The action is supposed to take place in the 1800’s.

      Overall, I think Django Unchained, though no masterpiece, is quite entertaining and deserves a go, even if only for the wonderful acting.

This movie has given me so much tension as I was watching it. There are a lot of of surprises and suspense on how Django would be able to find his freedom. It was one great movie that highlighted one man’s strength and courage to beat all odds and make it work for his favor. This movie is a must watch for those that have been oppressed and wants to win the battle of life.
