Hey, it’s a Tarantino movie, probably not going to be bad or unremarkable. Amazing performances and stylizations (flesh-ripping violence is sort of ultra-Peckinpah, popular hip-hop music feels like a 60’s style pop western).

Also, have to say plays the race issue well. White characters can only take the plot so far before they neutralize each other, and Django finds himself up against the true dragon: what slavery culture can make of another black mind in Samuel L. Jackson’s character. Waltz is not the typical wise old man mentor, he merely catalyzes Django’s ascension into what he could make of himself.
