Director Quentin Tarantino delivers an adrenaline shot to the heart with Death Proof, a peddle to the metal white knuckle ride behind the wheel of a psycho serial killer's roving, revving, racing death machine.

Kurt Russell (Escape from New York, The Thing, Silkwood) stars as a sociopathic stuntman whose taste for stalking sexy young ladies gets him into big trouble when he tangles with the wrong gang of badass babes. Their confrontation escalates to a hair-raising, 18-minute automotive duel with one of the girls strapped to the hood of a thundering Dodge Challenger that will have you on the edge of your seat mile after mile.

Referencing some classic chase movies - from H.B. Halicki's self-financed Gone in 60 Seconds, which contained a non-stop, forty minute car chase, to Vanishing Point, the nihilistic chase flick, to Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, a Peter Fonda vehicle - Tarantino once again mixes genres to perfection, fusing the chase and slasher flicks and coming up with something truly original. Death Proof is also Tarantino's most linear film: Events are presented chronologically and breaks in time are punctuated with title cards. Though the action is sequential, the contents of this unfamiliar structure are no less intriguing than that of any of his previous films.

Kurt Russell turns in a superb virtuoso performance in Death Proof as the truly evil, devious, deranged lunatic Stuntman Mike - a psychotic serial killer and Hollywood stunt double who uses his 'death proof' Chevy to fulfil his murderous lust. Joining Russell as Tarantino's girls are Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, 25th Hour), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror, The Black Dahlia, TV's Charmed) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Die Hard 4.0, Factory Girl). In addition, real-life stuntwoman Zo?ell (Uma Thurman's body double in Kill Bill), playing herself to wonderful effect, proves to be more than a match for Stuntman Mike, ensuring the film's climax is an exhilarating 100% stunt action triumph - and all done without any use of CGI effects!

So if you want to experience the thrill of the ride that is Death Proof and are prepared to have your senses mashed to pulp in the process, then you're in for a sadistic treat when the DVD hits the streets.

I ordered this from them the other week at this pirce, and got the exclusive boxart :thumbsup:

Enjoyable film with a kick-ass soundtrack!

'a peddle to the metal white knuckle ride' umm, not really.... i can think of a more apt line... 'Kurt Russel in perhaps his last big film, the Tarantino ego project that is....DEATH PROOF'

Very disappointing film to say the least. The Rodriguez half of the Grindhouse concept is much better.

Good deal though..!

1 of the worst films I have ever seen. Only good thing about it is the Cheerleader (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)

Good price though for fans of the film.

Until we get the double feature with Planet Terror as QT intended it to be, i'll pass.

A typical Tarantino film in that some will love and others will hate it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought the soundtrack especially was absolutely fantastic.
I'd recommend a viewing at this price :thumbsup:

I thought it was great too! :thumbsup:

:-D

One of the worst films i have ever seen it is woeful.

Like marmite...you love it or hate it. I loved it. Great film and a great soundtrack.

one of the best films in the last 10 years....

people dont get how this film is supposed to be, and label it trash. I am no QT fan, and I hated Kill Bill - but this film is immense.

Bought a copy in the States. It was on eBay 5 mins after it finished. Tripe! Still I suppose this is a good price for a film, and that's what we are voting on!

I liked it, but am waiting for the double feature with Planet Terror.

I enjoyed it, saw it in the cinema when it came out. I prefered planet terror though to be honest. Rodgriguez and Tarantino are excellent filmmakers, I can't wait for the 2nd sin city

This is an excellent film! And the soundtrack is great too. I watched it with my BF, he hated it and I loved it! Great deal!

Yep excellent film, I really enjoyed it, quality soudtrack as peeps have said. A great lap dance scene in the film too

no i get the film and think its dyer.There is no point its just a pointless story.......

I don't think this is typically Tarrantino at all - the dialogue etc yes, but the film lacked cohesion for me, there was no significant storyline of any depth, which given his previous outings, is a bit of a shame

one of the worst films ihave seen. very dissapointed. I can see what he was trying to do, but just didn't work.

Very Very Bad Film!

I thought this had massive potential :thumbsup:

Much preferred Planet Terror as well - a real hoot of a movie and I think it hit the nail on the head from what the Grinhouse idea was meant to be - Deathproof had some decent scenes but was a very poor attempt by comparison.

I'll be waiting for this bad boy!

(funnily enough my GF's nickname for me is Machete lol :p)
