Overall, Quentin Tarantinos Django Unchained is a cinematic masterpiece, which blends great camerawork, mise-en-scene elements, wonderful performances, musical scores, and an exquisite narrative to tell an amazing tale. At the start of Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantinos uses narrative structure to prefigure how the movie will unfold, but uses music score to prefigure particular scenes within the film. The movie is yet another masterpiece postmodernist work from Quentin Tarantinos pop-culture-infused mind. Tarantinos first western was an homage to Spaghetti Westerns from the 60s and 70s, three films that Tarantino has openly admitted Tarantinos paid tribute to while making Django Unchained.

Django Unchained is a Spaghetti Western-blaxploitation-revenge movie, not a faithful reenactment of the past, nevertheless, looking at some aspects of Django Unchained may provide insight into the lives of African-Americans in a United States of America before emancipation was declared, since it is a faithful portrayal of Southern barbarism. The film revolves around Django, who is a freed slave, who, with the aid of German bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz, sets out to free his wife from the cruel plantation owner, Calvin Kane. Set in the south two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained is the story of the friendship between dentist turned bounty hunter, Dr. King Schultz, and a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx) and their efforts to free Djangos wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), from the eccentric Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Django Unchained quickly takes off as a tale of Django and Schultzs efforts to free Djangos wife (Kerry Washington) from a worse setting — an expansive Mississippi plantation owned and operated by mercurial Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his slaves owner, eccentric Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprios owner, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Then the German bounty hunter risks his life to help Django locate his Mississippi, and the movie becomes meaningless.

Unlike the Quentin Tarantino epic Kill Bill, in which we have no idea how Beatrix Kiddos aka The Black Mamba/Bride begins, Djangos saga shows us her conversion from slave to folkloric legend. Django (Jamie Foxx) is an entertaining, terrifying, yet ultimately enriched movie, depicting slavery as the massacre that it was (Roots is childs play in comparison), but rewarding its viewers with all of the elements that make for great filmmaking, and Tarantino again giving us yet another reason to love cinema for how he entertains while simultaneously challenging us in ways words cannot even describe. With the signature opening shot of the Columbia Pictures icon old school, this dissolves into yet another Tarantino signature, of uplifting, iconic score, with the films signature tune, Django, composed by Luis Bacalov.

Django Unchained’S Ending Explained.

Then, the German bounty hunter risks his life to help Django locate his Mississippi, and the movie becomes meaningless. A German bounty hunter hatches a plot with a freed slave to entice the cruel planter-owner of Mississippi, and save his wife from him. In the late 1850s, a German bounty-hunter purchases the freedom of a freed slave from a duo of slave traders on a mission to locate and kill a few men who he wants to die. Django, his slaver husband (played by Jamie Fox), and Dr. Schulz, the German bounty hunter (played by Christoph Waltz), hatch a meticulous plan to free an enslaved woman named Broomhilda.

When Broomhilda meets Dr. Schultz for the first time, he addresses her in German, so that he can covertly inform her that he and Django are coming to free her. In the screenplay, writer Quentin Tarantino mentioned a black slave named Django who gave the Dr. Kings Schultzs horse to his wife. Dr. King Schultz is going to help a black slave named Django save his wife, Broomhilda, from the Candies Land, the farm owned by the brutal white slave owner, Calvin Canty. Then, the freed slave sets off with the aid of a German bounty hunter to locate and save his wife, Broomhilda, who, like himself, was sold into slavery by her former owners.

Candie surrenders himself and is about to be castrated when Steven enters, telling Django and his captors that Django is going to be sent to the mines to do heavy work. Django noticeably tells the other slaves at Candies they are free to leave, but refuses to forgive Steven for Stephens complicity in the brutality at Candies. Ironically, Stephen saves Django from being nearly castrated, suggesting what he believes would be an even more brutal and inhumane punishment: condemning Django to life in hard labor in the Mining Camp.

Schultz is soon killed by Calvin Kandies bodyguard, who is himself killed by Django using a Django-made pistol. The shooting causes a chaotic ripple effect, in which the shootout ensues, Doctor Schultz is also killed, and Django is defeated and imprisoned by the men left standing on Candieland Plantation. By the films end, King Schultz is dead, with Django being the one who walks off, just like Clint Eastwood.
