1858年，美国南北战争前两年。德国赏金猎人金·舒尔茨（克里斯托弗·瓦尔兹 Christoph Waltz饰）从贩奴商人手中买下黑奴姜戈（杰米·福克斯 Jamie Foxx饰），让其重获自由。舒尔茨实则是要把姜戈培养成无法无天的赏金猎人，为其缉拿各种通缉犯以换取报酬。姜戈的唯一条件是：从暴虐的糖果庄园主卡尔文·坎迪（莱昂纳多·迪卡普里奥 Leonardo DiCaprio饰）手中解救出自己的妻子布鲁姆希尔达（凯丽·华盛顿 Kerry Washington饰）。本片是昆汀向1966年由塞吉奥·考布西执导的经典意大利西部片《迪亚戈》的致敬之作。
《被解放的姜戈》荣获第85届奥斯卡金像奖-最佳原创剧本大奖，克里斯托弗·沃尔兹 Christoph Waltz则凭借此片荣获最佳男配角。本片同时荣获第85届奥斯卡金像奖最佳影片、最佳摄影和最佳音效剪辑提名。选段中，Django救出了自己的妻子Broom，干掉了糖果庄园的所有讨厌的人，最后炸掉了糖果庄园，和妻子离开了这个地方……
