5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you'd expect from a Tarantino script., 23 Jun. 2004
This review is from: From Dusk Till Dawn (2 Disc Collector's Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
"From Dusk Till Dawn" has it all; a hilarious script written by none-other than Mr. Pulp Fiction, superb direction by Robert "Desperado" Rodriguez and lashings of ultra-violence.
George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino are brilliant as partners-in-crime who, on a violent killing-spree, have to make their way to the border. But that's the easy part. While Clooney may at first seem slightly mis-cast as foul-mouthed murderer Seth, it soon becomes apparent that he plays the lead character perfectly. Tarantino is equally as good as Clooney's brother.
The plot is almost like two films in one. Watch the film and you'll see what I mean. It's like Tarantino got drunk half-way through writing a crime thriller and turned it into an ultra-violent gorefest, with the kind of insanity only present in the likes of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre".
From Dusk Till Dawn is certainly not for the faint-hearted, and some of the gore-effects are so ridiculous they're done for laughs (much like "Kill Bill"). It has a superb cast (Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Salma Hayek co-starring), a brilliant, completely unexpected (and equally stupid) twist, lots of over-the-top ultra-violence and hilariously cheesy special effects. Brilliant.
