Death Proof 2007

Grindhouse Presents: Death Proof

Critics Consensus

Death Proof may feel somewhat minor in the context of Tarantino's larger filmography, but on its own merits, it packs just enough of a wallop to deliver sufficiently high-octane grindhouse goods.

Movie Info

Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) is a professional body double who likes to take unsuspecting women for deadly drives in his free time. He has doctored his car for maximum impact; when Mike purposely causes wrecks, the bodies pile up while he walks away with barely a scratch. The insane Mike may be in over his head, though, when he targets a tough group of female friends, including real-life stuntwoman Zoe Bell (who served as Uma Thurman's double in "Kill Bill"), who plays herself.

  • 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.

    November 17, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 21, 2007 | Rating: 1/5
  • 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.

    September 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This blend of girlie action flick with retro car-chase movie scores nought out of 10 for artistic expression but four for amiable delinquency.

    September 21, 2007 | Full Review…
  • A horror-comic splatterfest set in 2007, but somehow filmed in 1972, about a posse of women taking revenge on a murderous, misogynist stunt-driver.

    September 21, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The appalling dialogue, mostly about the sexual predilections of his half-naked female cast, is so garbled, spotty and tedious that it fails to sell interest in a single character.

    If it weren't for Kurt Russell being in this, I would never have watched it. For those of you who know my reviews, you know I'm not the world's greatest Tarantino fan. This is 113 minutes of my life I'll never get back. One star for Kurt Russell, of course.

    In the tradition of two-faced, double-dealing, backstabbing this testosterone fueled motor revving only pretends to be "one for the girls" but in reality is another greasy exploitation that panders to the fantasies of underage nerd boys.

    Hard to review this film as most of the film felt like a teenage road trip movie and then all of a sudden a man comes along and kills them and that's the whole plot until the end when the tables get turned, There's a good car chase and the deaths are pretty gory but it's a very uneven film and should of been so much better.

    It's a lesser QT film, but it's still pretty damn good. Some of the dialogue is surprisingly lame, and the "grindhouse" visual effects feel a bit forced at times, as though QT doesn't really own this one. But it still easily manages to entertain for the most part. The car chase is superb.
