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.

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.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 9 Mar 2012
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
If you're reading this you probably know that Deathproof was originally released as part of Grindhouse, which pays homage to some of the less well made cultish films of yesteryear. Deathproof was made and cut into a much shorter version, to be released with the other feature "Planet Terror" as part of one film eancapsulating the "Grindhouse experience". This however is substantially longer, and was filmed and written as a full length feature. This means that the film isn't longer because they put all the crap they cut out back in, more that the Grindhouse version had to cut lots of things out.

Now if you complain about this film having too much dialogue, then you can't have seen many Tarantino films before. His films are all about the dialogue! Tarantino dialogue doesn't appeal to everyone, even I cringe on occasion, but his dialogue and storytelling style is largely about people being cool rather than being entirely beleivable. It's all about colourfull characters, in unusual situations.

Now the film isn't perfect and i'm not going to stick up for it's flaws. Clearly the action scenes are what makes this film memorable, particularly as the Kiwi actress Zoe Bell (playing a character called Zoe who is a Kiwi) actually did those stunts for real, no harnesses etc.

Just because there isn't action all the way through doesn't matter. You wouldn't say jaws was a bad film just because the shark wasn't there the whole time. When stuntman Mike appears, things happen.

This film is great, but I admit not Tarantinos best. However, I really enjoyed it. Turn your mind off, watch the girls in skimpy clothes deliver dry witty diaglogue, then squirm in your seat as the inevitable happens and cheer at the end.
