HeraldRae what a joke
Chirphymium It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
ThedevilChoose When a movie has you begging for it to end not even half way through it's pure crap. We've all seen this movie and this characters millions of times, nothing new in it. Don't waste your time.
Maleeha Vincent It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.
skyeslaton-37346 I Loved It, I Thought It Was Alot Of Fun Especially The Car Chase Scene In The End That Was Cool, This Is Probably Tarantino's Most Underrated Film Next To Jackie Brown
SlyGuy21 Leave it to Tarantino to change up a clichéd genre like this. While widely viewed as his weakest film, it's not as bad as you might think. It's essentially a slasher movie but instead of a knife, Kurt Russell uses a car. It's enough of a twist to make it unique. Add to that the other Tarantino elements that are here, ultra violence, character-building dialogue, and great attention to detail, and you have a good combo. I say "good", because the big problem I have with it is that it's in two parts. The first half is good, the second half is good, but they feel really weird when pushed into one film. If the first half was shorter, maybe I would feel different about it. A lot of characters are established during the first half that don't appear outside of one scene, so it feels kind of wasted. I do like the film though, and I think it worked well when paired with "Planet Terror", I just wouldn't see it again unless I was purposely going through Tarantino's entire filmography.
michaeltrivedi Death Proof is a great movie. Kurt Russell's character is so bad ass, that it basically makes the movie. Forget about Planet Terror. Death Proof is where it's at.The movie is about a group of girls that are stunt women. They meet Kurt Russell's character at a bar, and he ends up trying to kill them. It backfires, and he soon becomes the prey. And these stunt women definitely have some tricks up their sleeves.The movie runs slow, and the suspense builds. There are lots of scenes where the characters are merely talking, and we just get a sense of regular life and how people deal with each other. It's very slow, and that makes the action and violence much better suited. And there's definitely a lot of that.8 Stars, not bad at all
Tweekums This is a film of two halves; each with a similar setup but a different outcome. In the first three girls in Texas stop off at a bar where they meet up with a friend before intending to set off for a weekend at a lakeside house. In the bar they chat and flirt and are approached by a man who introduces himself as Stuntman Mike. Eventually they leave, Mike leaves as well, along with a girl he offered a lift to. It immediately becomes obvious that something is wrong; he is in a sealed compartment in his 'death proof' stunt car and she is thrown around. He then overtakes the other girls, turns round and crashes into them killing them all instantly.He survives and fourteen months later he is stalking another three girls in Tennessee who are also meeting up with a friend; in this case New Zealand Stuntwoman Zoë Bell. She has something she wants to do while she is in America; drive a 1970 Dodge Challenger… one of which is for sale nearby. They take it for a test drive during which she wants to do a stunt; ride on the bonnet holding on to belts attached to the wing mirrors. As she does this Stuntman Mike attacks and a terrifying chase takes place; these girls are tough though; they turn the tables and soon Mike is fleeing for his life.This film does have some impressive moments; mostly during the chase in the second half however there is far too much talking. Tarantino has created some great dialogue in his previous films but here there is too much talking… mostly from the girls who's dialogue may be snappy but isn't all that realistic. The first half is dedicated to introducing characters who will mostly end up dead; only Mike appears in both halves and his character isn't that interesting; he is just nasty. The second half is much better as the characters are more interesting, the confrontation between them and Mike is sustained and features some genuinely impressive stunts featuring Zoë Bell playing herself. The cast do a decent enough job although given that it is meant to feel like a trashy, low budget film it is hard to judge as there is some deliberate bad acting at times. Overall this is okay for Tarantino fans but is could have done with losing twenty minutes or so in the first half.
