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
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 ›

Format: DVD
Yeah theres all the arty stuff and all the references to old movies and the amazing style, sound and direction. The camerawork is great, there are sexy ladies and Tarantinos performance in this one wasnt too bad. But even all of this doesn't make a great film.

For the first half I didn't get it. I sat there hating Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russel) and hating the film. I thought Tarantino had missed the mark bigtime, like a lot of other people here. I sat and watched as the second half of the film built up the backstory of more characters, and then stuntman mike appears again and I feared more of the same.

It was about then I realised this was a vengeance movie. I would go as far as to say one of the best of all time, only behind "Oldboy". To be frank most of the movie is just building up to the end; but what an end. Never have I hated a main character so much that the thought of vengeance, which dominates the other characters on screen, was resounding so deep within me that I was so sure the antagonist deserved what he got. To be shown a desire for vengeance like that was something no film has ever made me feel before.

This movie is the pure, distilled example of how to make the audience really care about the characters on screen. There is no complex plot. There wasn't a big budget. But the raw emotion this film can invoke, if you let it, is well worth it.

Kurt Russell is Stuntman Mike, a guy with an eye for the ladies and a penchant for vehicular homicide. In fact, there's nothing that Stuntman Mike enjoys more than using his 'deathproof' car to wreak a little havoc and take a few lives.

The girls are sexy, the music is great and the stunts are fantastic.

About 45 minutes in everything ramps up for the most gratuitous and amazing crash sequence in the whole film and it is certainly impressive, not to mention voyeuristic with its multiple camera shots showing each victims demise in bloody detail.

The first half of the movie contains the most gratuitous death scene but the second half is the one with the most memorable stunts, particularly the one involving real life stunt woman Zoe Bell on the bonnet of a white Dodge Challenger. It's one of those rare moments that you get in a film where you are just watching in a stunned silence completely focused on what is enfolding on the screen. There is also a really well done motorcycle stunt in the second half that is almost a throwaway moment, which passes by so quickly that it's almost a case of blink and you'll miss it and yet it is a fantastic looking stunt.

Tarantino displays his flair for long scenes in which the characters just talk about nothing in particular and often nothing that's relevant to the plot in a style that isn't always realistic but works so well cinematically that somehow you just can't help but listen and become engrossed in what is being said.
Anyone familiar with the movies partner film Planet Terror will recognise a few characters from the hospital scene, and Tarantino/Rodrigez regular Michael Parks once again reprises his role as Sherriff Earl McGraw.
