“While the movie doesn’t take the outrageous narrative leaps of “Inglorious Basterds,” “Django” is nonetheless an intelligent thrill-ride, zipping along merrily (and bloodily) until it hits the inevitable Tarantino Act 3 Lag,” TheWrap’s Alonso Duralde wrote. “But even the slow bits can’t detract all that much from the wealth of trashy pleasures offered throughout.”
 

 
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Mick LaSalle dubs it “the most consistently entertaining movie of 2012,” while Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times writes: “In ‘Django,’ Tarantino is a man unchained, creating his most articulate, intriguing, provoking, appalling, hilarious, exhilarating, scathing and downright entertaining film yet.”
