A smart, sophisticated and perplexing blend of wisdom and attitude that takes bold risks, sneers at convention and then still has enough audacity to rewrite the history books for one last daring climax.

In this film, WWII was settled in a movie theater -- a notion that obviously feels appropriate to anyone who loves old movies as much as this director.

The intricate plot offers a wealth of opportunities for scene-stopping showpieces of all kinds, from epic spectacle to intimate character work.

Personally, I wearied of Tarantino's breathless shtick long ago, but I must admit I enjoyed Inglourious Basterds more than anything he's done in years.

Basterds has multiple plot strands that eventually converge in a spectacular finale, which takes place, fittingly, in a movie theater in Paris.

It's a lot to take in. But in the end, Tarantino leaves you wanting more.

Watching Tarantino pull out his filmmaking toys and play with each of them is a thrill.

The film might not be Tarantino's masterpiece but it is his most entertaining and exhilarating effort since Pulp Fiction.

It's a Second World War fantasy made up of bits and pieces of Second World War movies and reassembled into a wordy pastiche that is irresistibly absurd. It's positively inglorious.

Inglourious Basterds will be loved and hated, sometimes in the same scene, eventually leading to at least grudging admiration.

If you really like movies, chances are you like Tarantino. And if you like Tarantino, chances are you'll like Inglourious Basterds.

It has been a problem in the past that Tarantino's voice could be heard in the lines he wrote, but the mesmerising Waltz takes that gleeful relish of language and presents it as a vital aspect of Landa's professional pride.

[It] gets by on typical Tarantino gumption.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
John Serba

Tarantino's ensemble converses at length in basement taverns and cinema lobbies and war rooms, and the best exchanges are tricky, chesslike psycho-verbal games of subterfuge.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

It may be an unexpected adventure of unusual proportions and design, but it's still the most glorious adventure of the summer.

Vintage Tarantino returns to the big screen and he's brought all his trademark moves with him.

Inglourious Basterds is almost as deliriously entertaining as a remixed Hitler tantrum.
Paul Byrnes
Sydney Morning Herald
August 23, 2014
Inglourious Basterds is naughty, apocalyptic fun -- Tarantino's version of a war movie, with history rewritten to avenge the guilty in ways that satisfy his pop-art cinephilia.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The film's infamous ending offers Tarantino's most pronounced metaphor for cinema.
