A movie review written by Lee Sonogan
2h23mins (2009) Adventure, Drama, War
This is a perfect Tarantino movie. It’s explosive and exciting while also deep and well thought out. It took me a minute to get used to reading so many subtitles because of the variety of languages used, but I think that’s a quality that makes the movie even more enticing. It is incredibly well done and it had a hold of me from beginning to end. Fair warning for any Tarantino movie, be prepared for the gore and violence. It runs rampant throughout the movie, but it’s kind of gratifying seeing it happen to the Nazis. – laurabethc1 (IMDB – 10/10)
Within an alternative timeline, IMDB describes this movie as In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a plan to assassinate Nazi leaders by a group of Jewish U.S. soldiers coincides with a theatre owner’s vengeful plans for the same. In an all-star cast and a somewhat dark comedy in a timepiece, this is an underrated modern Quentin Tarantino film. Introducing Christoph Waltz and unique scenes of violence seems justified.
Without spoilers, some scenes are so memorable, theirs a monologue or two that can blow your mind. Might be a Brad Pitt movie but focuses on many different stories all packed into one kind of thing. For the war genre, it means so much more after multiple undercover actions and interesting conflict between words. Eli Roth and Michael Fassbender maybe the else most noticeable shined in their important supporting roles.
Bulky in length, investing in this is a must for any fan of the director. Engages at a pace needing to soak it all in, the suspense is worth it if you get all the way to the satisfying end. Of course, the soundtrack and cinematography are on par with anything else I have rated out of ten. Overall still vivid in my mind, this almost has it all for most adults.
