A Parody On Quentin Tarantino Style Films
on 25 July 2014
This 2011 (or according to IMDb 2012) released movie stars Christian Slater as John Smith who takes part in an Elvis Presley competition (after his wallet is stolen by a call girl) in a casino at an Native American reservation run by The Chief, he then gets to play poker with the other Elvis impersonators which includes Gary Oldman who's known as Elvis.
The next day John Smith gets woken up on the table by the Casino owners henchmen who accuse him of stealing this sacred Native American mask, they stick him in the boot of his car and they drive him in the middle of the desert, later John Smith manages to rip through the back seat, the both henchmen are shot dead, he manages to make it at a small town then suddenly everyone he meets (including some of those Elvis impersonators) try to kill him for the mask due to the reward money offered, not to give anymore away this movie has so many twists and turns along the way.
As for the other characters they appear in the movie sporadically especially the Gary Oldman one, the names that are given seem like they are poking fun of the movies made by Tarantino, like The Blonde, The Rancher, The Indian to name but a few, in regards to the performances real life martial artist Helena Mattsson as The Blonde steals the movie, she comes across as Lara Croft with the skin tight clothes, cleavage with two guns strapped behind plus she reads poetry before she assassinates someone, Christian Slater is cool as usual, the supporting actors give weight and conviction, if you want to see a good Quentin Tarantino movie that he never made I highly recommemd this.
