    Another great film from Tarantino. A tad overlong, but well-acted and often very funny (e.g. the scene with the Klansmen complaining about their hoods). If you haven't seen it, check out the original Django film from 1966, which Tarantino so lovingly tips his hat to (and even throws in a Franco Nero cameo as well).

    Rides out its long running time very well. Good humour, action and drama with great performances.

    I really enjoyed it but it is not as good as Inglorious Basterds. I thought Tarintino's usual style of interweving numerous stories together to create one big plot was missed here, we're very much just following the one story of Django. Apart from Leo, Christoph, Jamie, Kerry, Samuel... every other character is lacking depth to the point that I didn't care when they died, and I thought the film ended on somewhat of an anti-climax (*Spolier* I wanted Django to return to the farmhouse and go all Kill Bill, but it was just a quick shoot out and explosion and I felt myself slightly disapointed by that - where Inglorious Basterds had that amazing cinema scene).

    I thought it was better than Inglorious. More enjoyable with a more linear plot. V funny too in parts,. Overall v enjoyable if a little stretched at the end.

    good movie and very entertaining , In one hand it shows the savagery of slavery and yet full of comic moments , christoph waltz( finally a german in a hollywood movie who is Not evil ! ) , di caprio and samuel jackson were amazing , sadly jamie fox was the weak link and final shoot out was too much of spaghetti western , recommended

    As an homage to spaghetti westerns, It's good. It is gruesome in parts and I saw members of the audience recoil at some of the violence. Some very good performances. Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz stood out. The film loses momentum towards the end. A good movie, but it feels too long

    This is a paean to the old spaghetti western classics. I found it pacey, sharp and brutally disturbing in places. Maybe thats why I adore the movies; its where bad guys get there just deserts and good guys win. Despite all the fun some of the scenes where the slaves endure shocking brutality are a stark reminder what slavery really was. This is well conveyed by Di Caprio with his veneer of civility and Southern hospitality used to disguise a racist ignorant brute.

    Sorry, I'm a huge QT fan. Up until now the man could do no wrong in my opinion. But Django is by far his worst. SPOILER There are so many plot holes it becomes ridiculous towards the end. Why would Waltz's character do what he did to Di Caprio? It doesn't make sense. Were Django escapes from his captors en-route to the mines, again moronic stuff. The whole Mandingo premise was too convenient. Allowed for scenes of violence. Where are all the farm hands at the end following the funeral? Also, the movie is long but is massively rushed. There are pointless walking scenes, followed by rushed or cut out important dialogue, e.g. between waltz and big daddy. In my opinion QT has failed to mature as a film maker, he is clearly pandering to the the twenty-something market. As a mid-thirties male I feel that QT has basically given me the middle finger. I'm obviously no longer in his demographic, sad really.

    Does anyone agree that this movie is very over rated?? The script is too predictable, some of the scenes are badly spliced together and a lot of the characters were just too unbelievable.

    I loved the blue suit and some of the set pieces. But it was too long, I felt like I did while watching David Carradine's scenes Kill Bill 2- "when will this end?".

    Django is just over 3 hours long folks; I would like to think it is normal to include such a time-line for most movies these days. It was a tad dragged out because it lacked Tarantino input through-out, while he eventually created a climax that I thoroughly enjoyed. You remember it...isnt that what he does best? Over the top, red-sauce for blood! It may be his weakest, but the weakest of a fantastic cataloge of movies. It must be a pain for an iconic director to have to worry about his next movie. Sure, there was a lack of the dialogue ingrediant he supplied us with over the years, but make no mistake, it won't stand out from his collection but it is still Tarantino entertainment.

    Was expecting this to be only OK, but loved it. Leonardo Di Caprio (have to admit) was brilliant in it. Some odd things happen as to be expected with QT but definitely worth the watch.
