A sign of approval from the RZA is no small feat, and Django Unchained earned his stamp of approval. While general audiences won't be able to officially view Quentin Tarantino's newest film until it opens on Christmas Day, the Wu-god gave an early review, via Twitter.
As a student of Tarantino's cinematic game, RZA loved the flick which stars Jamie Foxx as the title character. He started things off by responding to criticism from his directorial debut, The Man With The Iron Fist, of which he wrote, “We are entitled to our own opinions on whatever subject we choose. Yet without proper understanding of a subject an opinion can be frivolous.”
From there the New York native announced that each of the film's stars—Foxx, Kerry Washington, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo Di Caprio, and Sam Jackson— were all on “their A game.”
Overall, Django has received mostly positive critiques and is said to be a sure-fire choice in the Oscar race.
But there are those who take issue with the slavery plot, but according to the actors attached, its Tarantino's vision that puts Django in its own category. “We knew there was going to be controversy. The question is: What is not a realistic depiction?” DiCaprio said told Vibe magazine. “I would argue that it is. It is Quentin's re-creation; this character doesn't exist. There's nobody that is documented to do what Jamie's character has done at the time. But the documentaries I saw went even further.”
