Some time after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth and his fugitive captive Daisy Domergue race towards the town of Red Rock, where Ruth will bring Daisy to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (an infamous bounty hunter) and Chris Mannix (a man who claims to be Red Rock's new sheriff). Lost in a blizzard, the bunch seeks refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery. When they arrive they are greeted by unfamiliar faces: Bob, who claims to be taking care of the place while Minnie is gone; Oswaldo Mobray, the hangman of Red Rock; Joe Gage, a cow puncher; and confederate general Sanford Smithers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside, the eight travelers come to learn that they might not make it to Red Rock after all...Written by

For it's theatrical release in India, the CBFC demanded that 1 minute and 34 seconds of cuts be made to the film removing some stronger elements of violence/gore throughout, coarse language and detail/dialogue relating to a scene of forced sexual activity. The cuts made are as follows: all scenes which feature shooting and violence were cut down by half of what was originally shown, the vomiting scene was reduced especially to shots of blood being vomited onto Daisy's face, reductions were also made to sight of Daisy cutting of a corpse's hand and to close-up shots of Daisy's face as she hangs from a rope in the final scene. The close-up shot of the Mexican's head being blown off after being shot was also completely removed. Further cuts were also made to the forced oral sex scene; removing all visuals of the act itself as well as toning down the visuals before the act were the nude man is seen walking through the snow. Sound edits were also made to this scene muting out some of Jackson's dialogue about the event; the phrases 'Black Pecker', 'Black Johnson' and 'Black Dingus' were all muted out along with some of the bad language used throughout the film, the terms 'bitch', 'whore' 'motherf**ker' and 'son of a bitch' were all muted out whenever used. The filmmakers were also required to attach an anti-smoking disclaimer and a health spot at the beginning (and at the middle of the film in versions with an Interval) they were also made to attach a small notice at the bottom of the screen whenever a character is seen smoking in the film.

Even tho i was expecting more action, I've found myself at the edge of my seat at times. The characters were nicely developed. The dialogue was as expected from a Tarantino movie. The story is 3 hours long, it takes place mostly in a one single room and it's still not boring. That's something not everyone can do. All of the actors we're perfect for their roles and the acting was great as well as the character design, all of the characters were memorable and well written. The movie is divided into chapters in most of which a small twist takes place that makes you more interested in the movie. I enjoyed the film but my biggest flaws were the length and the spontaneous introduction of a narrator mid- movie, that was a pretty 'out of nowhere' lazy way to develop the back story, but oh well, Tarantino is known for making risks and doing crazy sh*t
