What's new in Death Proof? Well, a lot of jibber-jabber. It's Tarantino jibber-jabber -- quick and juicy and deadpan and blunt and baroque -- but it's jibber-jabber nonetheless, minor time-filler between a few moments of twisted-metal glory or twisted-hum

Tarantino has literally lost the plot, foregoing narrative drive for loquacious idling.

Tarantino's very bloody half of Grindhouse.

September 21, 2007
No need to buckle up, Death Proof is stuck in the slow lane. Self-indulgent and uninspired, bankrollers Bob and Harvey Weinstein should have reined in Tarantino with a genuine Grindhouse-sized budget.

September 21, 2007
Ladies and gentlemen, Quentin Tarantino presents Death Proof: another feature-length gimmick that chokes two screamingly good action sequences in a smog of self-indulgent, self-referential, self-satisfied flatulence.
September 21, 2007
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
A waste of time. A waste of celluloid. A waste of talent.

A mindless action film meant solely for Tarantino fans.

September 21, 2007
Death Proof is an out-and-out dud, a film so profoundly dull, so relentlessly misguided, so criminally self-indulgent you almost feel bad criticising it. It's like kicking a man on crutches.
September 21, 2007
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.

October 27, 2007
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
October 6, 2007
A tedious, meaninglessly anachronistic project.
September 21, 2007
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
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.

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.

August 27, 2009
Clearly the work of somebody who has ingested Carol J. Clover's Men, Women, and Chainsaws, yet it is also more
September 29, 2007
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.

If you want to do this material justice... hold off on it until the release of Planet Terror and then watch them both together.

May 23, 2007
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.
February 14, 2008
Feels much longer than it is.
