Chris

You guys are arguing about the difference between "characterization" and "Character". The characterization he is given is of a self-preserving egoist. But the choice's the character makes, that drive the plot, runs counter to this, there's something in the character of either him or django that make Stephen become a more virtuous man. This is really intentional, not sloppy, and it definitely part of how the movie is attempting to work. If he was as self serving as he appeared, would he have helped Django to start with? They established how dangerous Mississippi would be-- why help him? He also makes a comment about being bored -- and we saw this is a rouse to fool Candie, but maybe there was a little truth to it and Stephen was tiring of his successful life as a bounty hunter-- he wanted to stand for something eventually.
