...Tarantino being Tarantino, he doesn't just make a big, violent, sprawling western filled gunfights and clever talk and driven by revenge and Old Testament justice.

The movie moves, with crispness and intelligence, arriving at the most purely satisfying conclusion we could possibly ask for. Audiences are going to eat that last reel up. I know I did.

Waltz gives a great performance, mixing an outwardly genial demeanor with sudden bursts of violence, and a surprisingly kind heart for someone in a Tarantino film.

One of the year's best films.

It's not until the third act that we experience a catharsis of violence, and when it happens, it's just not rooted in the reality of the film.

By the end, Django is a hero for his times: the D is silent, but nothing else is.

Obscurely referential, extremely indulgent, and deliriously over-the-top, Django is -- in other words -- everything you'd expect from a Tarantino joint.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

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.

If the slightly rambling Django Unchained is 'lesser Tarantino' -- you know, only a B instead of an A -- it's still a heady, delirious good time.

You will definitely get your money's worth. But this is one of Tarantino's minor works.

Low-level Tarantino inspires exploration, but delivers little more than a blood bath.

Tarantino slyly takes the dirty diaper that is slavery in America and rubs it in our face.

A bloody masterpiece. Funny, Thrilling, cleverly structured.

It's a testament to Foxx and Washington's talent, presence, and proven rapport that they keep the central emotional hook strongly present as their underwritten roles are continually pushed to the sidelines by Tarantino's overwriting for others.

It's exactly what you expect from Tarantino, so if this movie finds itself challenged in any way, it's in being expected.

...the time always flies, and Tarantino gives us a lot of movie for our money.

Tarantino's take on slavery is wildly creative, funny and frightening, true to form yet never predictable.

Slavery is to "Django" what the Holocaust was to Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" -- a colossal wrong to be righted by a film geek's best weapons: artistry, imagination and wicked humor.
