By the end of the film, Tarantino delivers on the action with a car chase that will get anyone's engine revving.

Death Proof doesn't simply comment on its genre inspirations - it adds to their very legacy.

As an anomaly, a curio, even as half a movie, it's a winner. As a stand-alone feature, it struggles to stand up to close scrutiny.

Tarantino's very bloody half of Grindhouse.

Freed from the constraints of the Grindhouse package, Death Proof can now spread out, find its proper rhythms, and emerge as another excellent Tarantino classic.

A comprovação de que, nas mãos de um diretor que conhece a fundo a técnica e a história do Cinema, até mesmo um exercício de estilo sem grandes ambições pode representar uma experiência apaixonante para quem ama e respeita a Sétima Arte.

Clearly the work of somebody who has ingested Carol J. Clover's Men, Women, and Chainsaws, yet it is also more

Feels much longer than it is.

Death Proof is superbly made. There's a terrible tension watching these beautiful and spirited young women getting too close to the flame, followed by enormous relief when the mood changes in the second story.

A well-controlled buildup of expectations, suspense, and character contrast.

The problem for Tarantino in Death Proof is that the girl talk that occupies so much of the running time is anything but true to the culture 50 years ago. The setting is contempo, but the movie style is period

A tedious, meaninglessly anachronistic project.

I've rarely seen a filmmaker, in current Hollywood at least, expose his sexual and sadistic kinks on screen with such shameless glee.

Deliberately designed to look like a low-grade B-flick from the Fifties, this slasher adventure from Quentin Tarantino is a guaranteed treat for that rare film fan nostalgic about the worst era in cinema.

Shadows on the Wall

While playing by the rules--scantily clad women, sudden brutality, straightforward narrative--he also gleefully subverts the genre to keep us thoroughly entertained.

Tarantino has a blast with this affectionate nod to '70s exploitation flicks, but the dialogue isn't as good as it should have been.

The dialogue with which Tarantino is usually adept is disastrously clunky, the filmmaking largely without flair and even the apeing of the smears and scratches of the schlock originals seems ridiculous.

Next to Kill Bill, this is only 50 per cent proof, but the last car chase will have you hanging on for dear life.

With its scratchy print, jerky editing and retro title sequence, Quentin Tarantino's fifth film bends over backwards to establish its Seventies sexploitation-flick credentials.
