From Amazon.co.uk

A killer rubber tyre? You read that right. And with a big wink to B movies of yesterday, director Quentin Dupieux’s Rubber is a solid, entertaining and downright bizarre piece of cinema.

Rubber is a horror comedy at heart, and that’s hardly surprising when you consider what the plot actually is. For the film centres on the aforementioned rubber tyre, which just happens to possess psychic powers. It’s not long, then, before said tyre goes off on a killing spree. And when the film motors up properly, it really does deliver on the oddball concept.

It takes too long to get there, though. What should be a fairly straightforward run for the movie takes some bumpy road thanks to some of the decisions that Dupieux makes. As such, Rubber isn’t full-on committed to its concept, and it’s when it’s dithering that it’s set to test the patience of its audience.

When it does go full-on, though, it’s great fun. Rubber really does explode into life as it closes in on its finale, and there’s consequently more right with the film than wrong. It’s clearly the concept alone that’s the chief selling point of the movie, yet there is more to it than that. A little more conviction on the part of its director, though, and it could have been better still. --Jon Foster

Product Description

French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux writes and directs this surrealist B-movie comedy horror following the outrageous antics of a killer tyre. Robert, a tyre that has been jettisoned in the middle of the California desert, suddenly comes to life and takes to the road, exploding small animals and people's heads as he sets out on a murderous rampage. Meanwhile, a cinematic audience follows his escapades from a safe distance through binoculars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Director Thought His Second Name Is Tarantino. 28 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Exploding bunny, exploding crow, exploding human heads borefest. Made for $500.000 and it lost money which is fantastic, hopefully this enlightens the director and he picks another vocation.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked this (for "No Reason") 21 July 2013
Format:DVD
Before you consider watching this movie, you should know two things:

First, it is about a killer tyre.

Secondly, I didn't make that up.

If you can suspend your disbelief long enough to get over that, you may just get something out of the film.

It opens with a scene where a police car drives towards the camera, knocking over a multitude of chairs in the road as it goes. When it gets close enough an officer gets out and talks directly to us, the viewers. He explains that some things in films happen for, "No reason." This is the whole basis of the film.

It's weird.

Things happen for no reason.

It's very weird. And, sometimes weird is good, other times weird doesn't work. In this case, I'll go with the former.

If you want a quirky film that doesn't conform to mainstream narratives and conventions, watch Rubber. It's silly. It's surreal. It's fun. It's sort of what David Lynch might do if he'd have thought of the `killer tyre' idea.

One drawback, a few of the scenes go on for a little long - it has the feeling of being a bit `student film studies made,' but it soon picks up in its daftness.

I stayed with it to the end - no reason.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Flat Tyre 17 Mar 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
At the beginning of this garbage, some dork comes on and says it is a homage to 'no reason'. What follows is a series of unconnected, pointless events, leading to a tyre running around on its own squashing people. That's it. The writer apparently knew very little about writing. The director apparently knew nothing about directing. You have a limited number of discs on your subscription, do not waste one of them on this. It won't cost you anything on Instant, except 78 minutes of your life.

Quite possibly the strangest film I have ever seen, It is so strange I can't even give a run down of the plot there is a guy at the begining of it saying some thing have no point, maybe thats the whole theme of the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars No reason 16 April 2011
By Mark G.
Format:DVD
Ok, a film about a killer tyre...let's see what we've got here....
Well, there's some chairs spread out on a desert road and a guy with loads of binoculars, then a car breaks all the chairs.
Why?
No reason.

As the opening monologue explains, this film is all about no reason.

So, the binoculars get handed to some spectators and the story begins.

Things start very well, with Robert (the tyre) awakening and stumbling about like a new born and then just revelling in being alive. It also discovers it has some other unique abilities.
Psychokinetic powers.
As Robert rolls around running things over and blowing things up, he spots a young lady driving through the desert and sets off in pursuit.

The problem for me with this film is that although it is very well shot, it spends too much time in the sequences where it steps out of the film.
It will cut to the spectators as they comment and question on what's occuring and initially it works well.
But, after a while these moments just start to drag on.
A good example is a sequence were one of the actors is trying to explain to everybody else that what's happening isn't real and they are just characters in a story.
For me the scene just went on for too long and took me a bit too much out of events.
Another example of this is when one of the spectators arrives on the scene to complain about the story being a bit slow and in need of speeding up.

The scenes with Robert are really good and the whole film is very well shot but for me it was just trying to be a bit too clever for its own good.
I understand what the film was trying to achieve but it didn't quite work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Quirky 11 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this for my mum as a mother's day gift. While it's not really your typical present for mother's day it went down a treat. Anyone with a quirky sense of humour who enjoys watching animals and people being blown up by a tyre will enjoy this film. A fun story with some odd characters plus the film doesn't stretch out but keeps everything moving quickly.
