I love tarantino movies but I have to say that this is simply awful. Huge huge periods of inaction, loads of talk which this time is simply not interesting unlike in his previous movies. Then at the half way point the movie just starts again and repeats essentially what has gone before. I understand this movie is meant to emulate some not so good movies of the past, I get it but that is no reason for this to be almost unwatchable. I fast forwarded most of the second half of the movie.

From reading other reviews i dont know what people expected from this film, if your looking for lots of action and explosions then go rent Die Hard 4.0 otherwise this should be reviewed for what it is. I liked it, while sometimes a bit drawn with all the dialogue it is very enjoyable and typical tarantino. At first I didnt know quiet what to make of it but the more I thought about it the more I thought "hey that film is actually kinda cool". Rent it.

I wasn't expecting too much from this after seeing Planet Terror, the other half of this Grindhouse Project. That was poor but at least the story kept moving. This is 1 hour 50 mins that really should have lasted no more than 30 mins. Don't bother sitting through the long long scenes of "The Girls" chatting. They add nothing to the story and are just plain boring. Kurt Russel is the only saving grace but over all he's not enough to save this.
Not for the faint-hearted!

I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Tarantino's films have yet to let me down. Kurt Russell was brilliant in his role as 'Stuntman Mike'. Usually I think Russell is not bad-looking but in this role, he was disturbingly chilling. The soundtrack is fantastic and Tarantino, as usual, has a cameo in the movie. There were a few scenes that viewers might find a little gory but it is an 18s film and rightly so.
All in all, a great movie!

this has got to be the most poorly acted film, with unintelligible dialogue, and nothing after watching just 10 minutes that convinced me that I would not be better off than watching Camberwick Green! At least that had a plot, and speech patterns that you could understand.
Screenclick, do yourself a favour and everyone else as well and consign this so called film to the scrap heap shredder!
