I really enjoyed the film. Never got bored, looked at my watch, checked my phone, nothing.
To me this was at heart a comedy. I found it quite funny. Laugh out loud funny. The violence is cartoonish.
To be a bit more specific, it is kind of two different buddy comedies mashed into one. The first part is Bob Hope and Bing Crosby in "The Road to Red Rock". The second part is "I love you man" as directed by Herschel Gordon Lewis.
Damien Bichir and Jennifer Jason Leigh are hilarious and excellent. Walton Goggins turns Boyd Crowder up a notch and to me is the star of the film.
If you squint real hard, the film also speaks about the possibility of better race relations, especially in the South.
I enjoyed it more than Django Unchained.
