Movie Review – Django Unchained

I think Tarantino’s like Marmite; you love him or hate him, there’s no in between. I really loved Django Unchained. It’s a sort of spaghetti-western, or rather spaghetti-western-southern.  The gallows humour appealed to me. And I thought the acting of bounty hunter Christoph Waltz was first class. Of course everything is OTT especially the superb performance by Samuel L Jackson who’s ten times more reactionary than Downton Abbey’s butler. A lot of people may have problems with the violence but for me it was so exaggerated, much like a Tom and Jerry cartoon, that it didn’t really shock. Four and a half stars.
