Inglourious Basterds
7 years ago via Flixster

Inglorious Bastards is another solid work by Quentin Tarantino. However, don't go to this movie expecting Reservoir Dogs, or Pulp Fiction. This movie moves a bit slower, and despite the hype is no more bloody than Kill Bill (although there are some scenes that will make you squirm). If you are not an avid QT follower you may find 70's style of editing and storytelling cheesy, take it for what it is though... an homage to the movies that QT grew up watching.

I found the story intriguing, much more of a story than you can gleen from the trailers, QT takes you on a journey following the plight of a Jewish French girl in Nazi Occupied France, and parallels that with the exploits of the 'Bastards' ... eventually both paths come to an apex and carnage ensues.

The best surprise for me was the performance turned in by the German actor Christoph Waltz, I hope to see more of him in American Film his last jaunt on the screen here was as a spy in 'Goldeneye', at any rate, Bravo Christoph.
