ANTICIPATION doesn't get much higher for film enthusiasts, whose ears prick up at the name Quentin Tarantino.

Whether it's from his early days of Reservoir Dogs and the infamous Pulp Fiction or the more recent pictures of the Kill Bill volumes and Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino's intriguing dialogue, bloody and graphic violence and awesome storylines are entertainment in its finest form.

For his latest picture Django Unchained, the hype is well deserved.

Set in the days prior to the American Civil War, when slavery was well and truly in effect, a former dentist come German bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) buys the freedom of a slave, Django (Jamie Foxx) and sets out to rescue his wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) from brutal Mississippi plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

 

Needless to say, the movie contains a great deal of strong language, given the era the film depicts.

In true Tarantino style, the violence is also graphic and brutal, as Django and Dr Schultz set about rescuing Django's beloved.

The dialogue is witty and powerful, with plenty of moments to catch your breath and enjoy the one liners that are delivered before shots are fired.

 

Tarantino cameos in the film as an employee of the LeQuit Dickey Mining Company, transporting slaves to the industry. There's even a face I never expected to see in a Tarantino film, Jonah Hill, who plays Bag Head #2 - one of the funny and light hearted moments of the film that still has me laughing.

Django Unchained is a gripping film, a true reflection of Tarantino's creativity and brilliant mind.
