Product Description

Fasten your seat belt, it's gonna be a bumpy ride. Quentin Tarantino pays homage to his B-movie favourites in this adrenaline fuelled tale of a psychotic stuntman's serial attempts to stalk hot babes in his supercharged, 'death proof' Chevy. Having already dealt with one set of women in Texas, Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) moves on to Tennessee, where he targets another posse of head-turning women. But this time Mike finds that he's bitten off more than he can chew, as the three girls (Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, and Zoe Bell) give as good as they get, culminating in an 18-minute car duel (without CGI), which references some of the classic chase movies of the past. As with any Tarantino film, there are numerous nods to pop culture, along with razor-sharp dialogue that just keeps coming.

From Amazon.co.uk

Loud, fast, and proudly out of control, Grindhouse is a tribute to the low-budget exploitation movies that lurked at drive-ins and inner city theaters in the '60s and early '70s. Writers/directors Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) cooked up this three-hour double feature as a way to pay homage to these films, and the end result manages to evoke the down-and-dirty vibe of the original films for an audience that may be too young to remember them. Tarantino's Death Proof is the mellower of the two, relatively speaking; it's wordier (as to be expected) and rife with pulp/comic book posturing and eminently quotable dialogue. It also features a terrific lead performance by Kurt Russell as a homicidal stunt man whose weapon of choice is a souped-up car. Tarantino's affection for his own dialogue slows down the action at times, but he does provide showy roles for a host of likable actresses, including Rosario Dawson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose McGowan, Sydney Poitier, and newcomer Zoe Bell, who was Uma Thurman's stunt double in Kill Bill. Detractors may decry the rampant violence and latch onto a sexist undertone in Tarantino's feature, but for those viewers who grew up watching these types of films in either theaters or on VHS, such elements will be probably be more of a virtue than a detrimental factor. --Paul Gaita --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
Other reviewers have dealt with the fact that this film was originally released as a double feature with Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror under the title Grindhouse, so I wont go into that again here.

This part of the feature is Quentin Tarantino's homage to the Grindhouse genre of cinema, those cheap, gory films that infested the flea pits of the seventies and eighties. In all honesty all Tarantino's films could be said to be an homage or continuation of this genre, but her it is more overt. The story is essentially that Kurt Russell's Stuntman Mike likes to kill people using his car as the weapon. It's a great story, and could lead to a thrilling action packed film (which is what you'd think you were getting from the advert!)

But Tarantino is far to interested in being clever to bother delivering what you're expecting. The film is shot largely in that old fashioned oversaturated technicolour, which gives it a seventies feel. To add to the effect, there are lots of deliberate scratches on the film, editing errors, jumps and flickers and even a short section filmed in black and white. Tarantino has made so much effort to make it feel like a cheap seventies flick that it almost feels churlish when you get annoyed by the artifice rather than charmed by it.

Most of the film is girls sat round various bars and cars chattering inanely with dialogue that is supposedly cool and witty, but in reality incredibly dull. Kurt Russell is a great contrast, not saying too much but making a huge impression. He really seems to enjoy his role, and gets right into the spirit of the creepy Mike, relishing some of the best lines in the film.

When the action finally picks up it is supremely well staged.

Format: DVD
Question Tarantino made Pulp Fiction, an effortlessly cool movie. Ever since then, I think he's been trying to make another super cool film, but not really succeeding. This movie is a good example of that. A gang of 4 badass girls are out on the town, drinking and partying, talking about men, indeed the first half hour of the movie is like a gritty version of Sex and The City. Kurt Russell, who is a brilliant and charismatic actor, easily capable of carrying a movie by himself, plays a psychopathic stuntman, named Stuntman Mike, who stalks sexy young women in his big black American muscle car. The film livens up as soon as Mike starts to feature. He watches the gang of 4 girls in a bar, and gets into a conversation with them, flirting with and teasing them. This all progresses very languorously and stylishly, but I couldn't help feeling that Tarantino was just trying far too hard to make the film cool, and instead it simply drags it's heels for the first 45 minutes or so. However, it then speeds up dramatically, when Mike takes a very sexy young blonde lady for a ride in his muscle car, and kills her using his "death proof" vehicle. Soon after that Mike drives his car into a head on collision with the 4 girls, a sequence which is shot with trademark Tarantino bravissimo. I won't say what happens next, but the film then shoots forwards 14 months, and temporarily goes black and white (remember what I said about Tarantino trying too hard to make his movies cool). Mike is still on the prowl for female victims. Another group of 4 girls are cruising about town, chewing the fat about their relationships with men. They go for a joyride in a white Dodge Charger and cross paths with Stuntman Mike.Read more ›

Format: DVD
I understand what Tarantino tried to do with this film (all the homage stuff etc) but he probably failed to realise that very few people care about those old films, or stunt-people for that matter, and doesn't know that what we really want and expect from this writer/director is a film that we want to see again and again and is unlike anything we've seen before. Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction are films I can see 50 times and never grow tired of them, while Jackie Brown remains his best film to date thanks largely to some brilliant characterisation; Death Proof however I may not bother with again because it's message is so simple, it's utterly devoid of characters you could care about, and even the car chases are unfortunately not as brilliant as Tarantino hoped. This film is surely much, much too long, and let's not forget it was originally meant to be just ONE HALF of a set piece of which Robert Rodriguez' 'Planet Terror' was the second half (a disastrous bastardisation of the Dusk til Dawn concept). Then when everyone started telling QT how boring and meaningless all this Grindhouse stuff is, he dumped the Rodriquez second half and added about half-an-hour of very mundane material from Death Proof that until then had (very sensibly) been lying on the cutting room floor. The script, if you could call it that, is ultimately wasted once you understand what the main point of this film is. It's a pure indulgence on his part and if anything I fear that we may have seen the best of him. That would be a pity, because clearly he once had supreme talent.Read more ›
