Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Brunhilde, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississipi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way.Written by
Quentin Tarantino: [Red Apple Cigarettes] During the Mandingo fight scene, Django can be seen opening a bag of tobacco with a red apple design on it. See more »
During the opening credits, the Speck Brothers have Django and five other slaves in chains. When Dr. Schultz catches up to them after the credits, there are only four other slaves. However, this is because the slave march depicted in the opening credits takes place over a week or more. At least one of the actors is different, because slaves were swapped out along the march, possibly including death. It has been stated in interview that this was deliberate, to depict the way a slave march would actually be. See more »

If anyone else had done this movie, it would be savaged for its low quality. I don't know what this movie was supposed to be. The apparent possibilities are: 1. spaghetti western, 2. black exploitation film, 3. overblown gore fest, 4. knockoff of heaven only knows how many other movies. In the end it was some of all. But the acting, except for the good Dr. Schultz, is miserable. Everyone is a caricature. If I was black, I'd be offended. Fox doesn't act, he glowers. The settings are all wrong....I mean snow-capped peaks in the South? The firearms are not period correct. You can even see the Italian proof marks on them. No effort was made to put together anything other than a 3 hour endurance test for your bladder. It's cheesy. It's lame. It is predictable. Think of this as a pizza from Chuckee Cheeze. It looks like fun. It has lots of colors. I even looks like it is consumable. But in the end it is just another rotten pizza.
Yes, I understand, the director or producer of this knows that everything is wrong. I guess that is part of its so-called charm. But don't call this great cinema. Oscars? What, are you on crack? The best way to watch this film is as part of a Mystery Science Theater 3000. In that way you can at least enjoy the humor.
Otherwise, wait for Netflix or the $5 bin at Walmart. It isn't worth the price of admission.
