“With densely crammed, unmistakeably excessive Quentin Tarantino dialogue, this is his most exciting, accessible and satisfying film for ages.”~Flicks.co.nz
Aroview: A cracking blaxploitation western from Quentin Tarantino, about a liberated slave who, with the help of a German bounty hunter, sets out to rescue his wife from a Mississippi plantation owner.
Galloping along at a steady pace, Tarantino's most enjoyable film in years covets the western/exploitation genre without overindulging in its reverence for the past, with Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz providing a humorous on-screen duo with the chutzpah to back up their bloody designs on revenge. Tangy dialogue, bolshy action sequences, and a badass attitude contribute to its high entertainment value.

5 stars (Exceptional) One of my top 5 films from 2012, Tarantino shows why he is the master of what he does. This is its own genre. It's classic and modern. It's serious and touching, moving, tongue-in-cheek, hilariously funny, and fantasy all rolled into one outstanding~Tom H
5 stars (Exceptional) Poignant social commentary buried beneath the ultraviolence. Something of an homage to Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone. Wicked sense of humour. Better than Inglorious Bastards. ~Anon
