Django Unchained directed by Quentin Tarantino
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great day! So, today I was supposed to do Order of the phoenix, but I am not much into Potter today, so, here I go with one of the biggest hits of last year, Django Unchained!
We all know Tarantino, and this is not particularly different from any of his previous films. The story follows Django and a "Dentist" who has made a deal with him: He will help Django get back his wife (who has been sold as a slave), if he helps him find some bad guys. That's pretty simple and the good thing about it is that it works just perfectly.
For an hour or so, that's the story, you get this two characters hunting down this three men, and there is a cameo by Don Johnson which is way cooler than expected. That first hour, I must say, is great thanks to Christoph Waltz. Moving on from that, when they locate Django's wife, they go right away to help her, and they find themselves in an amazing "battle" with Leonardo DiCaprio (who gives one of his greatest performances, in my opinion) and Samuel L. Jackson (you would not believe how good he is in here). That is, to me, the best part of the film, not only is it superbly written, but the acting is so good (not Mr. Fox) that you can't take your eyes away from the screen.
The direction was fine, no different from any other film by Q.T. The same goes with the music (although I wasn't much impressed with it this time). Obviously, the cinematography was amazing and the sets were great too. Technically, this is a near perfect film.
BUT, there's a big but, yes, the final part of the film is a terrible 20 minute piece of nothing that simply bores you to death and kills the whole film. Had it not been for those final minutes, this would have been up there with Pulp Fiction. Unfortunately, it's more of an "Inglorious Basterds", only better.
MadHatterSays: Watch it!4/5 à (3.5/5 because of the ending but I loved the performances so much)
