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

August 23, 2014
It's a Second World War fantasy made up of bits and pieces of Second World War movies and reassembled into a wordy pastiche that is irresistibly absurd. It's positively inglorious.
August 23, 2014
Inglourious Basterds will be loved and hated, sometimes in the same scene, eventually leading to at least grudging admiration.
August 23, 2014
If you really like movies, chances are you like Tarantino. And if you like Tarantino, chances are you'll like Inglourious Basterds.

August 23, 2014
It has been a problem in the past that Tarantino's voice could be heard in the lines he wrote, but the mesmerising Waltz takes that gleeful relish of language and presents it as a vital aspect of Landa's professional pride.
August 23, 2014
A failure so complete that it is infuriating as opposed to merely disappointing

[It] gets by on typical Tarantino gumption.

August 23, 2014
Tarantino's ensemble converses at length in basement taverns and cinema lobbies and war rooms, and the best exchanges are tricky, chesslike psycho-verbal games of subterfuge.

August 23, 2014
It may be an unexpected adventure of unusual proportions and design, but it's still the most glorious adventure of the summer.

August 23, 2014
At the end of the day, Basterds is a series of strongly made, if expertly (over)written, pieces that never really come together into one coherent whole.
August 23, 2014
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.
August 23, 2014
Vintage Tarantino returns to the big screen and he's brought all his trademark moves with him.

August 23, 2014
Inglourious Basterds is almost as deliriously entertaining as a remixed Hitler tantrum.
August 23, 2014
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
The film's infamous ending offers Tarantino's most pronounced metaphor for cinema.
August 23, 2014
A pretty good war movie that is audacious, occasionally fun and too in love with its own voice.
August 23, 2014
How welcome, then, that Basterds, while no masterpiece, manages to get at something more than its creator's too often frivolously exercised visual intelligence and esoteric preoccupations.
August 23, 2014
This film isn't about World War II, it's about World War II movies, as gleefully recounted by a giddy kid who's eaten way too much sugar.

A work that is experimental, offbeat, and most distinctly of a unique voice is a welcome rarity.

December 2, 2013
How does one do justice to a movie as warped, wacky and way out there as 'Inglourious Basterds'? Truth is, you can't. That's how glorious this bastardized version of World War II history becomes.
