In Death Proof -- director Tarantino's take on such peddle-to-the-metal shockers as White Line Fever -- Kurt Russell stars as an engine-revving psychopath who prefers to take out his beautiful victims at 200 mph. Originally released into theaters on a double bill with Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror under the Grindhouse banner, Death Proof finds a group of ladies out on the town pitted against a mysterious figured named Stuntman Mike (Russell), whose vintage automobile has been partially modified to withstand even the most extreme auto collision. Though the maniacal driver himself always comes out relatively unscathed, the same certainly can't be said for the poor young lass in his passenger seat -- or anyone unfortunate enough to be on the road when the urge to kill strikes for that matter. With a list of potential road-kill candidates that includes Rose McGowan, Jordan Ladd, Rosario Dawson, and Vanessa Ferlito, Death Proof takes viewers on an adrenaline-infused drive that's as sexy as it is shocking.

Although I am extremely sad "death proof" won't be joining "planet terror" on DVD, i'm still so geeked it's finally on DVD. This film had to be viewed twice it was so good. Quentin, i love you. Can't wait to see that extended lap dance scene, and can't wait till OCTOBER 16th when "planet terror" comes out on DVD.

that it wasn't a box office hit, because if people would have gotten off their asses and seen it, it would have been. Personally I like Planet Terror better than Death Proof and am sorely disappointed that they are releasing them seperatley on DVD, but I gladly buy this great movie by itself anyway. Zoe Bell goes for an amazing ride on the front of the "Death Proof" car which leads to the climax of the movie. Considering that they used NO special effects for the car chases, its pretty damn impressive. What a woman! I am so excited for Planet Terror! Hopefully they include all of the trailers on both DVD sets.

I'm as big of a Tarantino fan as you will find, which makes me that much more disappointed in "Death Proof." First let me say that I do like the idea of recreating the old 70's B-movies, with all the hiccups and glitches of those old films included. Also I have to admit that the car chase at the end is one of the best I've ever seen, and that scene alone grants this movie another star. With all of that out of the way, this movie pretty much sucks. The dialogue, which is usually one of Tarantino's biggest strengths, is so horrible in this film that many of the long-winded conversations between the girls are just plain unwatchable. Violently unwatchable, as in it makes you want to cuss at the screen for even thinking you wanted to hear it. It thinks it's more clever and hipper than it really is and sounds like it is written by someone who is trying waayy too hard to imitate QT's style. 3/4 of it should have been cut out. Also, as much as I like the concept of recreating the glitches of those old movies, it could have been done way better. To me it comes off here as too deliberate, and really kind of lame. The danger in trying to reproduce those "happy accidents" is that it can make a movie feel like it's trying to force its authenticity on you, which in turn robs the film from actually feeling very authentic. To be honest, I don't think Tarantino has made a good film since "Jackie Brown," which was his best imo, and maybe my favorite movie of all time. It seems like he's lost his hunger and his fans have convinced him that he can do no wrong. I wish he would get back to making real movies soon, because I think he's a genius and it's sad to see his talent wasted. Again, nice concept but horrendous execution save for a few great scenes. 2 stars.

I loved this movie the beautiful sexy women and this time women win at the end and I think thats great for a change in other movies women are just left for dead are raped are beaten up and thats the end of the story but not this one, and my husbend loved it as well, this is the best movie out there right now, so this is a must to rent are just buy it its worth the money,

Although this may not be Tarantino's best work, it certainly throws the throttle into high gear, and leads all motorheads who remember this paticuliar genre on one heck of a ride. The dialogue between all the women kind of lost me, however, it was essential to the plot as this kind of talk was probably the kind of talk that leads "Stuntman Mike" on his rampage. This leads me to what I thought was the best part of the movie - Tarantino's tongue was firmly placed in his cheek as he made many references to his previous films. The elongated version is the version to watch, as I'm sure that the films double-feature presentation with "Planet Terror", was only meant to whet one's appetite and await it's release on DVD. I felt it was certainly worth the wait and hope that the money comes in, since it was not a big Box-Office hit, and gives Mr. Tarantino the clout to fascinate us with more of his delicously wicked dark humor, violence and sex driven world. P.S. - the lap dance was worth buying this DVD for that scene alone!

I loved this movie!! Yes QT is an acquired taste but he makes cool movies with cool dialogue. The car wreck scene, the car chase scene & the lap dance scene were hot!! Loved Kurt Russell as stuntman Mike!! Would love to see a release of both films together!

The second feature of grindhouse is packed with hot ladies, grinding action, and stream of thought dialog. Quintin is a master at that. It rocks hard.

After knocking us out with the Kill Bills, Tarentino phones it in with Death Proof. The dialogue is zippy, but over-cooked. It almost came across as a Kevin Smith film in parts, and I mean that in a bad way. Kurt Russell is at his scene chewing best, but even he can't save the mid film plot leap. This movie embodies the term episodic. The chase scenes were thrilling, but not wholly original. Tarentino has certainly set the bar very high for himself with his body of work, but this one falls into the highly forgetable bin. Check out the other half of Grindhouse, Planet Terror, before shelling out the bucks for this lack-luster snoozer.

While I found Planet Terror almost too campy to be enjoyed, but worth the watch at least once, I Loved Death Proof. This is Tarantino's dialog at it's best, and yes, there is a lot of it. It takes awhile to build up, it's not as in your face as most movies are, but I've never had a chase scene send me so on the edge of my seat, and the ending was incredible.

Not one of his better movies, though I did like the cars in it and the ending of it, not one of his best movies.
