Django Unchained Reviews

Tarantino wants Django to be a rousing yarn as well as a commentary, but the movie so revels in its carnage that his larger point is drowned in a sea of blood.

Tarantino's made a great movie but an underwhelming film.

What a pity Tarantino is so busy booking cameos from old spaghetti stars and tipping his Stetson to schlock that he never unchains his most promising brainwave.

The players are in fine form. But the movie he's embroiled them all in is a hit-and-miss affair, at times an amusing reimagining of history, more often a blood-spattered bore.

We're used to Tarantino's films being multi-layered with several plots going on at once, but Django Unchained is a little too simple and, dare I say, dull.

By the two-hour mark the fun had oozed out of the movie for me. It's long. Or feels it.

Django may be unchained, but his movie could have used some tighter shackles.

Quentin Tarantino has made another movie. Or, rather, Quentin Tarantino has made the same movie again.

We're left with an overindulgent shadow of what could have been a much better film.

Tarantino almost saves his picture with his last act showdown but not quite. Getting there was a route too long, too clumsy, and just plain tedious.

Unfortunately, it wears out its welcome about two-thirds through, which means -- no kidding -- 45 more minutes to go.

There's something about [Tarantino's] directorial delectation in all these acts of racial violence that left me not just physically but morally queasy.

Like the earlier movie, in which Jewish-American soldiers assassinate Hitler, this one draws heavily on minority group revenge fantasy, the only difference being that the trick isn't as impressive the second time around.

Whereas there was savage beauty and irony in the '60-'70s violence of Penn, Peckinpah, and Leone, the coda of 'Django Unchained' is mere benumbing splatter.

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.
