4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but enjoyable, 19 Oct. 2012
This review is from: From Dusk Till Dawn [DVD] (DVD)
From Dusk till Dawn is an enjoyable, jumbled mess of a movie. It begins as a stylish chase movie, with Jacob and his children kidnapped by the notorious Gecko brothers. It then spends the final 2/3rds of the running time as a shlock horror.

Suprisingly, Kietel turns in a (for him) sub par performance. Tarantino continues, in the face of all reality to continue to act when he plainly has no talent for it. Juliette Lewis is only slightly better. The film would be a great deal less enjoyable except for Clooney, whose violent take-no-sh@t-from-anyone Seth Gecko steals the show from all and sundry.

Further support comes from two of their fellow embattled brothers in arms. A biker known as "sex machine" with the most laugh out loud firearm you'll ever see, and a grizzled black Vietnam veteran with (you guessed it) a story to tell about being in country.

Cheech Martin has a number of roles in the film. Why, is never explained. Particularly as they are all clearly Cheech Martin. His vampire MC's pitch is priceless, however.

Is this film worth watching? Sure.
Is it worth buying? Sure.
It may not be a great film, but it is a great film to watch with a beer and some buddies.
