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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Now with added lapdance, QT's B-movie homage to cars and girls deploys its cheap thrills with laid-back craft and class. Russell's wicked fun, Bell's a true trooper. Distributors! Can we have Planet Terror now, please?

There's plenty of fun to be had with Death Proof, but its imitation of a defunct, low-budget style of movie-making is perhaps too accurate when it comes to the genre's flaws.

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.
