A Tarantino tribute to exploitation films, "Death Proof" is packed with snappy dialogue and minimal, but enthralling action.

The story is about a demented stunt man follows and kills groups of women in his death proof car, but meets his match when he goes up against a group of stunt women with attitude. This movie has good writing but the scenes with the three girls go on and on for every and the ending is terrible.

This was so predictable I couldn't believe it. I enjoyed it nevertheless.

Tarantino Pushes Dialogue Limits

Tarantino is my favorite director. None of his movies have left me unsatisfied. I enjoyed this movie. This movie is completely different from the rest because it is almost too much Tarantino. It is by far his most dialogue-heavy films. I usually like Tarantino's dialogue-filled movies, this one was just a little too heavy for me. I think the dialogue really dragged down the movie because (not to be an ass), they were women. I found myself wanting to fast forward through half the movie. I relented and was pleasantly surprised how it picked up. Kurt Russell was amazing and did a perfect job with his character. He was the best thing about the movie. The lap dance scene was perfect. It reminded me of the dance scene in Pulp Fiction. Both were so raw, but were great dances at the same time; …

"Death Proof" by Yojimbo

A twisted stunt driver turned serial killer specialising in "vehicular homicide" meets his match when he takes on a pair of female stunt drivers on R'n'R. The Tarantino section of the cinematic release Grindhouse had me thinking that Quentin had finally dropped the ball. After half an hour of girl chat (which was obviously written by a man, making it very reminiscent of Kevin Smith and Chasing Amy in particular) and wriggling asses I found my attention wandering a little. And then Kurt stepped into his "death proof" car, and he suddenly reminded me of how cool he (or rather Snake Plissken) used to be. One spectacular crash later, it grinds to a halt again. But thankfully this leads up to a final half hour that was more than worth the wait, as the would be victims turn the tables and turn …

Death Proof review

Daniel Corleone - wrote on 12/01/2011

Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) introduces himself to the friends of Pam (Rose McGowan). He notices that DJ “Jungle” Julia Lucai (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) is on a billboard. A flashback ensues after Mike is detained for the gruesome murders. Group of ladies have been followed by Stuntman Mike even taking pictures. He gets beaten to a pulp by a group of ladies with a mean streak. You have references from Pulp Fiction (dialogue and foot fetish) and Kill Bill (the whistle on a ring tone) with a touch of female character build-up. Continuous conversations about cars, relationships, and movies from the beginning to the middle portion. Its soundtrack was good and the only thing good was the car chase scenes and stunts. Russel was impressive in his deranged role. Death Proof is a thrill …
