At the midst of rescuing Broomhilda they get caught by Candie’s house slave, Stephen, which he informs his master of the betrayal. With no choice Django and Dr. Schultz have to come out pistols blazing if they ever hope to save Broomhilda.
Review: Quentin Tarantino has yet again made a bloody and magnificent work of art. By using well renowned actors and actresses his film has brought out a twist of a romantic action based on our history.
This film is nothing like I have seen before. It is unique and genuine from its plot to directing. Django is full of entertainment. As a slave Django (Jamie Foxx) is a brilliant character as well as Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCapro). They have brought out the true character of a wife seeking slave and a plantation owner back in our history. Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) is a true bounty hunter and Stephan (Samuel L. Jackson) as loyal house servant. The damsel in distress (Kerry Washington) is convincing as a slave that can speak German.
Django being 166 minutes is fairly long but all worth it and you won’t even realize the fly. The movie does use racial epithets but used appropriately and goes well with the movie. Nobody should feel offended but astounded with how well the movie is.
