Death Proof (2007)
Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Death Proof
Smart attention is paid to some interesting tensions between old and new in areas as varied as pop culture, photography, effects work, automobile construction, telephony and audio recording technology.
Much of this material is terrific in purely cinematic terms; one of Tarantino's saving graces as a filmmaker is his often surprising capacity for contemplative moments and patches of plotlessness.
Although overall impact of Tarantino's homage to chick-driven actioners and auto demolition derbies remains about the same, pic's second half, in particular, benefits from the further detailing it's now received.
A mindless action film meant solely for Tarantino fans.
By the end of the film, Tarantino delivers on the action with a car chase that will get anyone's engine revving.
Audience Reviews for Death Proof
A delightful homage to exploitation films of the '70s, and it is especially amusing thanks to the way it mixes the visual elements of those movies with modern ones, but Tarantino gives in once again to his narcissistic self-indulgences in endless, tiresome exchanges of dialogue.
Tarantino's exercise in slasher-type thriller is almost hypnotic in its first half, but really seems to lose its touch as it goes on. Kurt Russell is great in the lead role, even if his creepy allure is lost in the films' final third. Satisfyingly thrilling and cleverly shot, 'Death Proof' may be one of Tarantino's weaker films, but it's still a terrific ride. A great ode to grindhouse cinema and italian slashers.
Combined with Planet Terror, it makes for a cool film. I would have to say that I liked this one more (maybe my Tarantino bias) because the events in the movie could actually happen in real life. I guess i'm a sucker for realism.
