It is perhaps a weakness of Tarantino's film, though surely consistent with the spaghetti western genre, that a great gulf separates the good guys from the bad. No room is left for the ugly, the ambiguous, the in-between.

It was a mixed bag for me; some great moments scattered about amongst lots of humdrum, considering the subject matter.

The direction stays firmly within the predictable bounds of Tarantino's violent sensibility

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.

The horror that Django Unchained expresses isn't of slavery, finally, but of a filmmaker attempting historical tragedy while shackled by his own supercilious persona.

[A] piece of have-it-all-ways hokum ...

Different setting, same old Tarantino
December 23, 2012
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.

Hollywood has got to clean up its act --- and that goes for you, Mr. Tarantino!

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