A truly arrogant vanity project!
Verified purchase
Death Proof is basically two hours of blabbering crap with some impressive car stunts and bare-footed women in hot pants dancing for Quentin's camera as he lives out yet another adolescent fantasy.
Quentin had clearly started to believe his own press a little bit too much by the time he came to make this film as Death Proof is nothing more than a formless and self-indulgent mess.

In the extra features interviews he arrogantly refers to his 'talent' and what he wanted to do with his 'talent!' when it came to making Death Proof. Well he was clearly delusional at this point in his life after snorting too much cocaine at the time.
It is best we all just forget this film ever existed as Quentin has definitely redeemed himself since with some of his more recent films.

Immature sexual gratification.
Verified purchase
The movie starts as Tarantino’s movies generally start - weird situation/setting with lots of yapping. The yap revolves around hyperbolic debate over minutiae.
Only when Kurt Russell (who gives a good performance) comes into the picture; one-third the way through, does the action pick-up/progress. He plays some mythical movie stunt man who just happens to be around in a surreal way.
Then in the movie, suddenly, there occurs a considerable amount of pointless violence. Why the violence? It was unknown to me.
The action concludes with the local sheriff making the statement that the violence will have moved state from Texas to where-ever, leaving me to think that the Russell character is that of a serial offender, but the theory is left vague once more.
The movie’s story then steps into a completely different movie which has a similar format, only the tables get turned on the character played by Kurt Russell.
The movie then ends.
I grew-up in an age of women establishing equal rights, wishing to be men and it made me sick. Until then I loved women normally, observing the wonder of femininity. However, in this movie, I find the violence towards women intolerable. As a man I feel responsibility in that although many women wish to do men’s jobs in many instances, nonetheless, simple manners and courtesy can still be tendered as a respectful gender definition by both parties. If this movie reflects the new-age world we currently live within, then mankind has lost the art of living.

A nice nod to 70's exploitation movies
Verified purchase
The Grindhouse double feature was an interesting concept when it came out but I never made it to the theatres to see it. I'm told this version of Death Proof is better because of it's extended nature. I personally enjoyed it but don't have any particularly strong feelings about it other than Kurt Russell being brilliantly cast against type as a villain.

Not a great Tarantino film but still worth watching
Verified purchase
Quentin Tarantino said this was his worse film and I tend to agree but it does not mean it is not worth watching. A simple revenge thriller with a stuntman played convincingly by Kurt Russell, who likes to take unsuspecting women for deadly drives in his modified car.

I don't think I will give too much away to say he finds he has bitten off more than he can chew when he targets a group of female friends, including real-life stuntwoman Zoe Bell. It is a strange film that meanders along between violent set pieces but the dialogue lacks the punch and wit of his other films and the acting apart for Russell is not completely convincing.

It is beautifully shot though with an authentic 70s vibe and draws you in to its conclusion although this is rather predictable.

Boring first half, satisfying second.
Verified purchase
One of Tarantino's lesser known movies and not one of his best but I particulary like it. The first half I find a little tedious, just girls talking, first in a car then in a bar, and the talking goes on for too long and goes no where. Then they leave the bar and the movie starts and gets interesting, then crash bang it's all very bloody and over. But the movies only half done. It jumps forwards to a new location.
Three new girls in a car.
Repeat of what went before??
One spots, in a local news paper, a V8 muscle car for sale, they must have it and got to buy it.
Test driving the muscle car they cross paths with Kurt Russell (the killer driver that brought the first half of the movie to an abrupt violent end) but things don't work out quite the same for the killer this time and the rest of the movie is just one long violent car chase.
All very stupid and Tarentino but once past the tedious first half it becomes quite good fun.

Even a genius is human
Verified purchase
Art is subjective, but personally I love and re-watch the QT films and rate him as the best writer/director ever. Except for this one. I hoped a third watch 14 years later with different eyeballs would change my view, but it's more juvenile, shallow, badly acted and self indulgent than I remember. Shame, cause all the other films are 11 outta 10. Planet Terror was actually pretty good though!

Typical Tarantino
Verified purchase
This is a very typical Tarantino film. It’s obviously made at an early stage from his career as bits of this film can be seen in his later work but improved upon...His endings are usually very outrageous and this is no different though not quiet as dramatic as his later work..I loved it but my wife who is also a fan of Tarantino thought it was trash. But.....what does she know !

One of the most boring films in recent years.
Verified purchase
This film follows a group of women who play main characters in it and they just basically sit around different places talking about stuff. Other supporting actors come into the film later on and try to make it more interesting ,but it fails. It's like a female version of reservoir dogs without the bank robbing aspect to it.
