Brief=In the late 1850's, former dentist turned bounty hunter Dr King Schultz buys the freedom of a man named Django from a slave trader duo in a quest to find and kill some men he wants dead. Afterwards, Django sets out with help from Schultz to find and rescue his wife Broomhilda who like him was sold into slavery by an anonymous owner. Their journey takes them to a plantation called Candieland, owned by a ruthless tycoon. Also, they come to some suspicions of the head slave named Stephen
Unlike many of QT’s films – Django Unchained has quite a simple plot. The film is really all about revenge. The set up is that Django (Jamie Foxx) is freed from his life as slave by Dr Shultz (Christoph Walz) to help him track down 3 outlaws and in return he will help Django free his wife from her life of slavery. Simple.
The film is a mammoth 165 minutes long – but the time flew by and the film kept me entertained from beginning to end.
Django has everything you’d expect from a QT film, both good and bad. Excellent dialogue, rounded colourful characters, magnificent acting, a wonderful soundtrack and of course bucket loads of humour. Last but by no means least the most important element of any of QT’s films – lots and lots of violence, blood and gore and liberal use of the ‘N’ word. Unlike many critics, I don’t have a problem with the use of the “N’ word. It certainly seems warranted in a film set in the deep south in 1858.
Now, for the bad parts of the film. Some of the plot developments seem a little too silly, but that is forgivable. It is after all a work of fiction and not a documentary. But the one big unforgivable, is that QT needs to reign himself in, or to have someone strong that can stand up to him and reign him in. The final act of the film, was a little on the ridiculous side. I don’t want to give anything away here, but it is pretty obvious where QT thinks, you know what, there just hasn’t been enough blood and violence and crazy developments yet – so he just goes over board. I’ve got to say, Quentin JUST STOP IT. br>
I really don’t understand how Django won the Oscar for “Best Writing, Screenplay written directly for the screen. Surely that honour should have gone to Wes Anderson for Moonrise Kingdom. I guess Django is a long film and most of the members of The Academy are very old, so probably feel asleep after 2 hours and missed most of the crazy last act.
Having said all of that, I thoroughly enjoyed the film and would have given it a better score if QT had have been a little less like a kid in a sweetshop in the last 40 minutes of the film.
