David Weaver of the Examiner writes: Quentin Tarantino always seems to be able to surprise even when you know exactly what to expect from his films going in. You know to expect colorful and expertly written dialog and actors who know how to deliver such eloquent monologues. You know to expect a fairly straightforward story with many embellishments that add unique personality quirks to his many richly drawn characters. You know that even though it appears to be a western with all the trimmings that it likely won't resemble any western you have ever seen. Most of all though you know to expect the unexpected, that around every turn there is a surprise that will shock and/or amaze you with its brilliance and its boldness. "Django Unchained" is a film along those same lines and because of that is yet another great film for a fantastic filmmaker.
