Death Proof

Death Proof is the ultimate Tarantino movie which is full of action, cliché and bad acting in this modern "B-Movie" which pays homage to the 1970's of the schlock horror/action genre. The film removes around Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) who stalks beautiful women with his deadly vintage car but when he chooses the wrong trio of girls (Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, and Zoe Bell), it becomes a powerful struggle and a reversal of cat and mouse.

Like most Tarantino films, there are plenty of nods to pop culture and it's entertaining to see modern cars and mobile phones in this movie as it feels like it has come directly from the 1970's with its grainy film quality. Most of the scenes are deliberately short on plot development, the dialogue comes thick and fast throughout and the film stock is often cleverly manipulated to perfectly replicate the B-movie aesthetic.

The unfortunate aspect of Death Proof is that it was originally released as part of the "Grindhouse" double feature with Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror and when both movies were released independently in Australia, extra footage was needed in both films which sometimes make the scenes seem extraordinary long and dull at times. Still an entertaining Quentin Tarantino movie!
