The movie left me both exhilarated and frustrated. Not quite a masterpiece, it might qualify as a "messterpiece," an unwieldy, unfocused film with unforgettable moments that nearly get lost in a sea of excess.

The movie is a bit long, well over two hours and probably could have been two hours had the first half of the movie not dragged. But the second half is well worth the build-up.

[Inglorious Bastards] is pure cinema, pure theater, and entertaining
June 15, 2017
... a mix of pulp fantasy, genre play, and narrative tropes resurrected with fresh takes and twists, all deliciously scripted into dialogue dances and verbal jousts...
June 14, 2016
Tarantino's tight script is playfully sharp in all languages.
June 14, 2016
Recommended whole-heartedly for those seeking visceral, pulp-'n'-gulp entertainment.

It all makes for one bloody, nasty, funny film. And despite its indulgences, one that will rightly be hailed as a comeback for its rockstar director.

Waltz steals every one that he's in.

June 14, 2016
In his gloriously imperfect Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino distills every war movie he's ever seen into one potent, funny, morally indefensible, nine-tenths brilliant "impossible mission" flick.

June 13, 2016
Irresponsible and overinflated though it is, Inglourious Basterds is still more pleasurable than half a dozen Defiances and Valkyries and Miracle at St. Annas put together.

While it's effective in spurts, we can only wonder when Lt. Tarantino will learn some new tactics.

July 10, 2015
A smart, sophisticated and perplexing blend of wisdom and attitude that takes bold risks, sneers at convention and then still has enough audacity to rewrite the history books for one last daring climax.

In this film, WWII was settled in a movie theater -- a notion that obviously feels appropriate to anyone who loves old movies as much as this director.

The intricate plot offers a wealth of opportunities for scene-stopping showpieces of all kinds, from epic spectacle to intimate character work.

Personally, I wearied of Tarantino's breathless shtick long ago, but I must admit I enjoyed Inglourious Basterds more than anything he's done in years.
June 30, 2015
Basterds has multiple plot strands that eventually converge in a spectacular finale, which takes place, fittingly, in a movie theater in Paris.

It's a lot to take in. But in the end, Tarantino leaves you wanting more.

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