Only Tarantino could pull off this much mindless dialogue. It's watchable but drawn out if you're not into the style itself, since it's short on substance. However the two climaxes are worth the wait and you'd be cheating yourself if you just grabbed the clips off youtube.
Hell of a car chase, that's for certain. Kurt Russell is gleefully mad and unrestrained (even to the point of self-mockery). The leading ladies are bad-ass, trash-talking, superstars - except for some excruciatingly annoying characters, of which there are a couple. The camera work is dated but very appropriate, the edit is paced well, and the soundtrack is phenomenal. Tarantino having fun, before he went mostly sour.
An under-appreciated homage to exploitation cinema and rocking soundtracks. Kurt Russell revels in his role, and I'm always glad to see Rosario Dawson. The dialogue is a little clunky, but that hardly skews the nostalgia-driven entertainment here.
A homage to a lot of 70s exploitation films with over-the-top actions. A major critique has been that it contains a lot of dialogue, but I feel that Tarantino himself is recognised as being a writer that emphasises the dialogue in his films. For me, the pointless dialogues is effective to help get to know each characters better as a "build-up". As result, each of the characters hv attitude that makes them interesting
Death Proof, o cuando Quentin Tarantino creyò que era Quentin Tarantino. Lo opuesto a Pulp Fiction, esta cinta esta plena de dialogos inutiles y bastante pendejos (una poda de tres cuartos de hora le hubiera venido bastante bien), sin embargo, los ultimos 15 minutos (que huevos tan bien puestos los de la tal Zoe!!) estan entre lo mejor del director.
I love all the girls in the film -- they are either reminiscent of the girlfriends that I hang out with, or I can easily imagine myself hanging out with. I thought the dialogue was fun and believable, except with the extra punch and humor that comes from Tarantino's manic mind. The climactic action sequence had me on edge... Zoe Bell is incredible! (I'd be a nervous wreck if I was her mom.)
