It is the first year of Germany's occupation of France. Allied officer Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) assembles a team of Jewish soldiers to commit violent acts of retribution against the Nazis, including the taking of their scalps. He and his men join forces with Bridget von Hammersmark, a German actress and undercover agent, to bring down the leaders of the Third Reich.

  • When Tarantino sent this message to moviegoers in 2009, it's unlikely that he imagined how relevant it would be in 2019.

  • The performance of Christoph Waltz, playing the Nazi Gestapo figure Col. Hans Landa, is the highlight of the film. His ability to convey courtliness and sympathy and then go to commit the cruelest of horrors is simply superb.

  • The film might not be Tarantino's masterpiece but it is his most entertaining and exhilarating effort since Pulp Fiction.

    August 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the injection of content from a variety of directions, Basterds lacks the crackly excitement of Tarantino's other efforts, mainly because he can't seem to tie the whole package together.

  • Inglourious Basterds is naughty, apocalyptic fun -- Tarantino's version of a war movie, with history rewritten to avenge the guilty in ways that satisfy his pop-art cinephilia.

    August 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Waltz will be unknown to most American audiences -- he was certainly unknown to me -- but he's nothing less than sensational as the silky, polyglot SS officer charged by the Fuhrer to root out the remaining Jews in France.

Audience Reviews for Inglourious Basterds

    The movie is a bloody and brutal movie but for me had no satisfaction in its climax which I felt wasted my time.

    Whilst I've yet to see "The Hateful Eight" I am happy to say that for me this is the best QT film to date. This is a brilliantly staged and devilishly nuanced film, with a terriffc story, characters, soundtrack, script, and performances. If you've only seen it once, you really haven't seen it at all.

    Well-crafted, but in typical Tarantino fashion, distancing, and un-relatable. No characters to root for or against and nothing to embrace. Rating: 53

    Complete crap from that juvenile jackass hack, Tarantino, who couldn't even come up with an original title for his personal agenda John Landis style vanity-fest of revisionist history and ethnic hate.
