Try Hard with a Vengeance

I admit, I might have had high expectations.
I thought it would be haphazardly funny, maybe haphazardly violent. The only thing I failed to predict was it's predictability.
It's like some sort of badly disguised comic book parodying war films and war stereotypes. I'm not even sure it did it self consciously. The only thing I enjoyed was the fact that every character in the thing was a tragic idiot. I really didn't give a ... what happened to any of them.
This is also the film that finally
Wow and yuk all at once

Is this movie really based on a true story???
If it is, it illustrates the huge change in warfare we have today, image releasing a bunch of cold blooded homicidal maniacs to reek havoc in a war zone. I suppose, if the concept of mind and heart was secondary to sheer terror of complete war it might happen. I just could help thinking about the reverse rolls; the enemy sends to England or the United States a group such as these Inglorious Bastards to raise holly hell.
This is a little shocking,
Irreverent but enjoyable

If 10 is the highest score, I have given this film a 7. This is not a film to be taken seriously and if you can tale it with a grain of salt, the violence and historical content, can be put to one side and carry on with the humour with which I believe it was intended. It has a very disposable attitude to life and makes a mockery of convention. For someone who does not like violence, I could take this without offence. Beautifully redicilous and a fair reflection of its Irreverent Title. Knowing

Not what I was expecting from a taratino film. But this is what makes the film unique. Very enjoyable from start to finish with some comical moments. Brad pitt delivers as always, but its the "newcomers" that steal the show particulary the french lady cinema owner and the SS officer. The film has many tense moments which keep you at the end of your seat. My only quibble is the ending, which was a bit ott, but hey! what do ya expect-Its a taratino film!
Return to form for Tarantino

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's a bit brutal and gory in parts but that's what you expect from the man.
Brad Pitt was very funny putting on an Italian accent, but the star of the show is most definitely Christoph Waltz as the SS Colonel. Absolutely brilliant character.
Some memorable scenes including the Bar fiasco and the colonel's first interrogation of the French farmer.
