A failure so complete that it is infuriating as opposed to merely disappointing
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

[It] gets by on typical Tarantino gumption.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
John Serba
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Film School Rejects

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.
Top Critic
Eric Kohn
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.
Andreas Heinemann

Vintage Tarantino returns to the big screen and he's brought all his trademark moves with him.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Inglourious Basterds is almost as deliriously entertaining as a remixed Hitler tantrum.
Paul Byrnes
Sydney Morning Herald
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.

Cristian Duran
What Culture
August 23, 2014
The film's infamous ending offers Tarantino's most pronounced metaphor for cinema.
Michael Smith
Tulsa World
August 23, 2014
A pretty good war movie that is audacious, occasionally fun and too in love with its own voice.
Michael Joshua Rowin
Stop Smiling
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.
Norman Wilner
NOW Toronto
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
April 19, 2014
Raises a host of fascinating questions about the nature of justice and vengeance, and how these things are understood in both the Jewish and Christian traditions.
Michael Dequina
January 25, 2014
A work that is experimental, offbeat, and most distinctly of a unique voice is a welcome rarity.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger
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.

Alan Jones
Radio Times
August 4, 2013
It's a long but entertainingly showy melodrama full of cineaste jokes, tricksy wordplay and references to film-makers GW Pabst, Leni Riefenstahl and Sergio Leone.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Jeff Meyers
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
August 4, 2013
Despite failing to achieve epic greatness (or moral relevance), Inglourius Basterds is a helluva cinematic experience, rewriting the fall of the Third Reich in a way few directors would ever dare.
Aaron Mesh
Willamette Week
August 4, 2013
The experience is like savoring a box of imported French chocolates, only the last one is filled with the wrath of God.
Ben Kenigsberg
Time Out Chicago
August 4, 2013
For all its originality, this hall of mirrors is the closest Tarantino has come to making a film with old-fashioned, movie-movie appeal.
| Original Score: 5/5
