It's very, very entertaining. It's also, of course, pretty violent, and the kind of inventive, colorful violence his fans have come to know and love.

...Inglourious Basterds is Tarantino's best film.
August 21, 2019
Tarantino's Western-inspired fantasy acts as a real-world corrective of how the Nazis perhaps ought to be seen - with utmost scorn - and in what context this sort of cinematic violence can, and even should, be indulgent.
July 26, 2019
It's clever, riotously amusing in parts, and does have some salient points to make about the relativity of the acceptance of violence.

You have to respect Tarantino's vision, moral aversions or not. But the result this time feels like a great idea that ranged out of hand.

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

A highly ambitious and highly entertaining effort that takes the war drama and crushes it to pieces -- reassembling a masterpiece that reinvents the familiar genre.
March 26, 2019
However, despite the aspects that can make loving Tarantino a slog, he has moments of true cinematic greatness that cannot be ignored.

It's all eye-poppingly impressive, and the relentlessness of it will still make you want it to stop as you head deep into hour three. Then after you leave, you might find you think about it a lot, how interesting it was, even the boring parts.

It's funny. It's violent. It's funny and violent. The acting is unbelievable. Pitt is charming as the icy killer, and it's clear Tarantino has found his new muse in Laurent.

From the opening moments (Tarantino's films always start strong), the film establishes itself as the auteur's best work.

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.

Where Death Proof kept halving itself-effectively remaking and one-upping the Kill Bill mommy saga with different drapery-Basterds keeps excoriating everything, loud and proud and begging to be heard.

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.
September 12, 2017
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.
June 14, 2016
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.
