Django Unchained (2012)
it's Tarantino, you know what to expect
So, it's a Tarantino movie, we know we will get over the top violence, we know we will get abusive language and we know it's supposed to chock. The movie itself is good.
Jamie starts out a very believable slave and sells his character very well.
Naturaly or maybe not, it depends on your taste, Sam "Jules" Jackson and Christoph Waltz steal the show.
It's a shame Kerry Washington's character didn't get to be better developed, but then again who had the time, right?
The music is expertly used throughout the movie and the "Trinity" wink at the end is a wonderful addition.
On to what really got people fired up: the word most people from the US are afraid to use and refer to as the N word.
Yes, it gets used a lot, and I mean a lot. Yes, the overall language might be offensive for some people but no, this particular part of the movie is not over the top.
It's about slavery, it's about racist views of most characters including black characters. So the N word is well used, it's not exaggerated it's very appropriate having in mind the time and place where the actions happens.
Yes, slave owners, as well as regular folk would call black people the N word, it was as natural as saying the sky is blue and that slave is a N The violence doesn't spoil the picture at all although it is very exaggerated.
And there is no reason to find this a racist movie, nor it depicts all white men as "the villain".
