DJANGO UNCHAINED is a western set in the late 1850s about a bounty hunter who engages the services of a slave he purchases. It is rated 18 for strong bloody violence.

There are a number of scenes of bloody violence. In one scene, a fight to the death occurs between two slaves, including a brief suggestion of an eye being gouged and arms being broken, ending with a man being killed with a hammer. One extended shootout involves copious amounts of blood spurting from bullet wounds, drenching clothes and carpets and spraying up walls. Men who have already been shot, and whose bodies are being used for cover, are struck repeatedly by bullets which causes even more blood to spray about the room. At one point a man's head is blown open, resulting in sight of brain matter spraying out.

At one point a man who has been stripped naked and strung up is threatened with castration. A knife is held close to his genitals but the threat is not followed through.

The film also contains some strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker') and racist language ('n*gger'), reflecting the period in which the film is set.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
