Consensus: Bold, bloody, and stylistically daring, Django Unchained is another incendiary masterpiece from Quentin Tarantino.

David Thomson
The New Republic

Django Unchained is 165 minutes and nothing much happens beyond talk and the provision of corpses. The plot lurches around and the artful structure of Pulp Fiction has been abandoned.

Django Unchained has mislaid its melancholy, and its bitter wit, and become a raucous romp. It is a tribute to the spaghetti Western, cooked al dente, then cooked a while more, and finally sauced to death.

Obscurely referential, extremely indulgent, and deliriously over-the-top, Django is -- in other words -- everything you'd expect from a Tarantino joint.

Genre-movie-mad writer-director Quentin Tarantino's foray into Western World is a pretty grave disappointment.

Overlong, self-indulgent garbage with a portrayal of a "house Negro" that is a grotesque distortion of a sad reality.

Django Unchained is Tarantino's most complete movie yet. It is also his most vital. His storytelling talents match the heft of the tale.

Wall Street Journal

Wildly extravagant, ferociously violent, ludicrously lurid and outrageously entertaining, yet also, remarkably, very much about the pernicious lunacy of racism and, yes, slavery's singular horrors.

It is plainly a nonstop riot of humor and excitement, and one that matches its delicate nature with an equally calculated sense of importance in leading us to the most satisfying climax possible.

A time pass flick that falters a bit too much towards the ending.

Django Unchained is really weird, and I say this as someone who has grown very much accustomed to Tarantino's classic cinematic insanity. He outdoes… More
