Storyline

In 1858, a bounty hunter named Schultz seeks out a slave named Django and buys him because he needs him to find some men he is looking for. After finding them, Django wants to find his wife, Brunhilde, who along with him were sold separately by his former owner for trying to escape. Schultz offers to help him if he chooses to stay with him and be his partner. Eventually they learn that she was sold to a plantation in Mississipi. Knowing they can't just go in and say they want her, they come up with a plan so that the owner will welcome them into his home and they can find a way. Written by [email protected]

More sickening anti-white violence from Hollywood...
27 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie glorifies violence against white people, promotes white guilt, and is extremely deceptive as a consequence of its numerous historical inaccuracies.

For one thing, the movie depicts white gentiles as being slave owners, attempting to shoulder American whites with a heaping dose of "white-guilt" -- despite the fact that in the Antebellum South only 5% of whites owned slaves, while over 40% of Jews owned slaves. Therefore, the movie is both historically inaccurate and unfair in its depiction of white people in general. On these grounds alone, the movie should be avoided.

That aside, the movie has the usual heaping dose of sickening violence I've come to expect from the kinds of sick movies pushed by Quentin Tarantino and Hollywood in general.

I highly recommend that families across the United States keep this sick filth out of their homes and away from their children. For that matter, adults shouldn't even watch it for themselves. The slander, lies, deception, violence, and sadism of this movie make it cultural poison. Find a more wholesome and productive activity instead, like reading books!
