Storyline

In 1858, a bounty-hunter named King 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, Broomhilda, 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 Mississippi. 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 rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

This is technically not the first western Django movie on which Quentin Tarantino has worked. He played a minor role in Sukiyaki Western Django (2007). This role was in exchange for a request by Tarantino for Sukiyaki's director, Takashi Miike to cameo in Eli Roth's Hostel (2005). See more »

Goofs

The Wallpaper by William Morris called Windrush seen in the dinner-table scene had not been created when the film is set (1858-59). Windrush-patterns were created a few years later, in 1862. See more »

The Perfect Movie
16 June 2020 | by alexcole10See all my reviews

For anyone who isn't much into cinema, I would recommend watching Django Unchained and you will fall in love with films forever.

This film is a classic western full of drama, suspense and tension with a tremendously unpredictable plot but with a sense of realism taken into consideration.

I believe it would be hard to dislike this masterpiece as it has it all: action, adventure and even a sense of romance and the occasional humour.
