Trouble in Candieland,
This review is from: Django Unchained (DVD)  (DVD)
"Django Unchained" was an entertaining film set in the US South just before the outbreak of the Civil War.Jamie Foxx plays Django ,a slave who gets rescued by an eccentric German bounty hunter. Django joins up with this bounty hunter and proves to be successful at it. However Django wants to reunite with his wife from whom he was separated and the pair track her down to "Candieland", a large plantation owned by Leonardo DiCaprio's Mr Candie. He is a thoroughly nasty , but outwardly charming individual and the two bounty hunters have to find a way to rescue Django's wife Brunnhilde from the clutches of this wicked slave owner. There are plenty of shoot outs and violence in this film and a lot of good acting performances from Foxx,DiCaprio and Samuel L Jackson which makes the movie gripping viewing throughout. However the film was somewhat overlong and the ending over the top.I would have preferred the film to have ended with the first explosive scenes rather than the second.
