Sex & Nudity


Some non-explicit sexual references are made to "comfort girls," (prostitutes) and a reference to oral sex (when a man wins a fight, the master celebrates and tells his employees to "send a pony (comfort girl) up to his room to lick his pole."

There is a scene where two topless men are shown fighting each other.

A woman is taken out of a 'hotbox'. Her breasts are very briefly seen, but no explicit nudity is visible. The scene itself is not sexual in nature.

A man is seen hung upside down, from a top down shot, his butt and scrotum are seen. His penis is very briefly visible when a man threatens to castrate him with a heated knife.

Django shoots a man in the penis (which is only visible for a split second before he shoots).

Violence & Gore

10/10 The scenes are exactly in order of the movie.

A man shoots another man in the head (blood spurts out in the graphic amount) and a horse head as well.

A dead horse falls on a man and his leg gets caught between the horse and ground, he shouts in pain. A little later he is shot in the head by a group of slaves, much blood spews out.

A sheriff is shot in his stomach and later takes another one in the chest by a man, some blood is seen.

Flashback scenes show slaves being tortured, a female slave is whipped by her master, very intense.

Three men called brittle brothers are killed in a sequence. The first brother is shot in the chest, slightly bloody. The second brother is whipped and shot repeatedly in the chest (he is shot off screen). The third brother is shot in the chest with blood spurting out. Very graphic.

A group of men on horses get caught in an explosion but they escape. In the same sequence a man on a horse is shot, the shooting happens off screen but blood can be seen all over the horse.

A group of men on horses are shot to death, bloody.

There is a scene where two slaves fight viciously (called a mandingo fight). The whole scene is brutal and intense. This is the "vicious fight' described in the MPAA description box.

A slave is attacked by dogs. The scene is brutal, disturbing, and emotional.

In a scene a man turns very violent towards his customers, bashes his hand over the table and it gets cut with blood all over. He smears the blood on the face of a female slave.

A massive shootout erupts in Candyland. This is the bloodiest of all the scenes. Huge amounts of blood gushes out of the bodies and the whole room gets filled with corpses and blood.

A man is tied upside down naked, it is implied that he is tortured.

Two men get shot (little bloody) and a man explodes (not graphic).

A bunch of people get shot with bloody results. In the same scene a man gets his penis shot, very graphic but cuts off real fast.

At the end of the film a man gets shot in his groin, he cries in pain. A black man gets shot in his knees, bloody. Later he gets killed in an explosion

There are two distinct styles of violence in the film. Many of the shootouts are extremely stylized and very graphic. The dog attack, hot box, whipping and Mandingo fight are all more realistic and sombering.



There is a lot of "n" words in this film, but its 31 F-bombs is the reason why the term 'language' is used in the MPAA description box. Because "nigger" can be heard frequently in PG-13 rated films.

-The word "n*gger" is used constantly throughout the film when characters are referring to black people. It is used 116 times throughout the film. The connotation is negative however, and not endorsed whatsoever.

-31 f*cks. (5 paired with mother). Nearly 18 sh*ts. B*tch, a**, and son-of a b*tch are used occasionally. We hear several crude allusions to anatomical parts.

Goddamn it/Goddamn (1 paired with f*cking) is used 34 times. "Bugger" is heard sometimes. 2 use of Jesus Christ. 1 use of bastard. 12 uses of hell. Several uses of damn and damn it.

Several man are shown drinking, a lot of smoking is done as well Both in combinations as well No drugs

Several fighting like hand-to-hand combat


Explosions, gun fights !

A conversation takes place that is too intense to handle as it is a lot of tense , screaming, gun pointing, etc

A man holds askull & saws it & threatens to do with alive man as well
