From Dusk Till Dawn Reviews

April 27, 2018
"From Dusk Till Dawn" answers the question about George Clooney, but raises a couple about Quentin Tarantino.

[Robert] Rodriguez pushes the envelope but fails to make any lasting impression except revulsion at the spectacle of acclaimed independent filmmakers wasting their talents on such trash.

It is a shame to see so much good talent giving such low-yield results.
November 18, 2008
A tired, humorless pastiche of various exploitation genres that is not the least bit imaginative in its campy deconstruction of conventions.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Rodriguez demonstrates his talents more clearly than ever -- he's visually inventive, quick-witted and a fabulous editor -- while still hampering himself with sophomoric material.

The picture shows what happens when a writer (Tarantino) and a director (Rodriguez) come together and reinforce each other's worst tendencies and misconceptions.

A drop-dead-erotic scene a seduction dance by the bar's featured performer, Santanico Pandemonium ... is one of the two reasons to see this movie.

The characters were as empty as the story.

As the bloodsuckers attack our 'heroes' again and again, you feel like you're watching a video game -- from dusk to dawn.
January 1, 2000
From Dusk Till Dawn was probably spawned from an all night bender during which Tarantino and Rodriguez thought it would be fun to see if they could make a deliberately lame movie with someone else's money.
January 1, 2000
The movie, which treats you with contempt for even watching it, is a monument to its own lack of imagination.
January 1, 2000
From Dusk Till Dawn will be a real disappointment for most Tarantino fans.
January 1, 2000
The filmmakers' references, their winks and nods to the audience, are far more diverting than the picture itself.
January 1, 2000
The film is so flamboyantly gory and disgusting, so vulgar and in-your-face obnoxious, with so many offensive subplots and wacked-out elements that you may give up long before you need to reach for your second headache tablet.
January 1, 2000
I don't mean to dismiss his films, which I enjoy, or cast aspersions on his character, but I've got to admit -- when Tarantino plays his own sordid parts, he gives me the creeps.

Fans of the genre will like it, especially in the no-holds barred second half. Others are advised to avoid this one.
