Throwback Thursday: Django Unchained [Review]

Verdict - "A Classic Tarantino Film!" / My Rating - 4/5

Directed by Quentin Tarantino, the 2012 American revisionist Western film, Django Unchained takes place in 1858, two years before the civil war, where a bounty hunter named Dr King Schultz takes Django under his wings and frees him from slavery. Consequently, after collecting few rewards Django leads Schultz on a mission to rescue his wife Broomhilda, who was treated as a slave under Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner of Candyland.

Starting off with the positives, Quentin Tarantino, who is known for his astounding style and his remarkable writing skill, brought back the old western filmmaking techniques, with reference to few occasional pulpy quick zoom and some large amount of blood spilling out from the bodies during encounters. The screenplay was exceptional just like his previous movies and the soundtrack was impressive and was a perfect fit for the film's tone.

Advancing to the performances, Jamie Foxx plays the role of Django, a livid individual fueled with rage and vehemence against white people and portrayed his disgruntled character flawlessly. Christoph Waltz, who had been nominated for the Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars gave another brilliant performance as a good companion of Django. Leonardo DiCaprio is at his best as Calvin Candie, the brutal proprietor and is the main highlight of the entire film.

Nevertheless, Django Unchained is filled with incredible performances, tremendous screenplay, dialogue and was overall a classic Quentin Tarantino film.
