Review by Aaron M
In Django Unchained, a former slave trains under Dr. King Schultz in order to become a bounty hunter. Instead of being trained, he finds himself on a mission to rescue his wife from the hands of Calvin Candie. Calvin Candie is a ruthless plantation owner.
The movie is set two years before the civil war and happened in the Deep South. Django, played by Jamie Foxx is a slave. He is rescued by Dr. King Schultz, a German-born dentist and bounty hunter. Dr. Schultz has been on the hunt of the infamous Brittle brothers and needs Django’s help to capture and kill them. He trains Django to become a bounty hunter like himself. Django is successful in his attempt to hunt down the ruthless killers and as promised is freed from slavery.
Django is separated from his wife Broomhilda and loses his wife to the slave trade. He is forced into slavery by his vicious owners. He must free his with the help of his mentor from the clutches of an evil plantation owner called Calvin Candie.
Calvin Candie, played by Leornado DiCaprio is the owner of ‘Candyland’. Candyland is a disreputable plantation. Django and Dr. Schultz manage to locate the plantation. Unfortunately, they arouse the suspicion of Calvin’s trusted house slave. They must evade capture in order to successfully free Broomhilda.
The movie is directed by Quentin Tarantino and he has has done it again. The movie takes the audience back in time with a fictional story taking place in a historical era like “Inglorious Basterds”. The movie took place in 1858 which makes this Mr. Tarantino’s first western genre film. Django Unchained is a masterpiece movie.
