Tarantino designed this revisionist western to blow people's gaskets. Packed with physical comedy, bloody action and hell-bent revenge, it looks like a classic widescreen Sergio Leone western...

A good film, and a crazily entertaining film, until Tarantino does blow everything up, at which point it just becomes rather silly.

The film is at times brilliant but mostly infuriating. It is a good movie in that masturbatory way most Tarantino films are good.

Django Unchained is a ruthless and romantic epic that is also filled with unbridled entertainment that challenges audiences, rather than coddling them.

It's an intelligently provocative, massively entertaining exercise in postmodern revisionism, highlighting how shamefully few movies Hollywood has ever made about slavery.

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

But I absolutely love and was blown away by Django Unchained, and I can't wait to see it again, and again after that.

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

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.

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.

Django Unchained is 165 minutes and nothing much happens beyond talk and the provision of corpses. The plot lurches around and the artful structure of Pulp Fiction has been abandoned.

Tarantino's best for ages, absolutely not to be missed.

Who needs facts when there is great vengeance, furious anger and the path of righteousness to attend to? The magpie deserves our respect. Always. Forever.

[A] piece of have-it-all-ways hokum ...
January 17, 2013
Not a masterpiece, but a funny, violent, very entertaining crowdpleaser.
January 17, 2013
As in all of Tarantino's best films, there is a strange and brilliant magic at work here; a dark, bubbling alchemy of art and junk.
January 14, 2013
Another strong, sparky and bloody entry in the QT canon.
January 8, 2013
A film bursting with pleasures great and small ...
January 4, 2013
Django Unchained is Tarantino's most complete movie yet. It is also his most vital. His storytelling talents match the heft of the tale.
January 4, 2013
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.
