My least favourite Tarantino film by a mile but still solid and great fun. I seriously hope he abandons his wish to only do two more films (after his recent ‘The Hateful Eight’) and then retire, but chacun son gout, as the French would say, and everyone should be able to do whatever they want as long as they don’t hurt anyone else, right? And if anyone of recent vintage (the past 25 years) deserves that, it’s Tarantino, I suppose, but still, I hope he’s lying.
There are few things as fetching as a bruised ego on a beautiful angel.
Death Proof is directed and written by Quentin Tarantino. It’s part of a double feature production that Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez released as Grindhouse. With Rodriguez contributing Planet Terror. Death Proof tells of a psychopathic stunt man played by Kurt Russell who stalks pretty young ladies and then murders them by way of road accidents caused by his “death proofed” stunt car. Joining Russell in the cast are Zoë Bell, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Jordan Ladd, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Tracie Thoms, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Rose McGowan.
Many trials and tribulations followed the release of the Grindhouse project; poor opening weekend, two film’s meant to be together ultimately separated on disc, with different cuts etc etc. It’s all rather boorish in truth and really both Death Proof and Planet Terror stand up on their own two feet even if the whole “Grindhouse” homage” is somewhat lost in home viewing. So on to Death Proof, a film that finds Tarantino on deliciously agreeable form. Delivering a chicksploitation psycho killer piece that bubbles nicely under the surface to then explode into one of the most thrilling finales in recent times.
Now in its longer cut, Death Proof is split into two parts. The first part has one group of girls (Poitier, Ladd & Ferlito) out in Austin, Texas, celebrating the birthday of one of them. It’s here we are introduced to Stuntman Mike (a terrific Russell), who is stalking them. For this first half there’s lots of talk and relationship posers plotting away. It’s a slow build, and in light of QT’s pre release promise of 200mph thrills, it may lose some viewers hungry for action and murder death kill from the off. But hang in there, listen to the dialogue, get to know the characters, particularly the girls (how often do we get to know victims in slashers eh?), and then bang! Pay off number one as carnage is unleashed in multi-angles and action replays. A memorable blood show played out to the awesome drum beats of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Titch’s pop classic Hold Tight.
Part two. And our second group of girls, an aesthetically pleasing bunch that contains Zoë Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Tracie Thoms & Rosario Dawson. Again there’s much talk, but oh what talk. These are girls I could sit and listen to for ever. This may not be QT’s most quotable movie, but it isn’t shy of coolness in the writing. Just sample the whole gun conversation as the camera revolves around the table, a sharp sharp moment in the film; all that’s missing is a Madonna story, you know? Some may argue it’s indulgent from the director, I say it’s finding a director very relaxed and at one with his protect. Besides, it’s a critical passage of play that’s setting us up for the exhilarating climax as Bell (real life stunt-woman) straps herself to the bonnet of a speeding Dodge Challenger. What follows is ripping cinema, free of CGI and string work, not only does QT homage those car movies of the 70s he loves so much (Vanishing Point, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry et al), but he’s also patting the back of the stunt-men and women who bring so many action moments to life. And as this long car chasing sequence raises the pulses, it starts to unravel that Death Proof is subverting the norm. Bravo boys and girls.
Hilarious, riotous, troubling, sexy and sleazy, Death Proof is unsurprisingly proving divisive. But I for one wouldn’t be at all surprised if in ten years time it is regarded as being one of his best movies. The Grindhouse project may not have worked as a whole, but this portion on its own provides thrills and cheek in equal measure as Tarantino gets behind the wheel and takes us on one hell of a ride. Kicking soundtrack too! 9/10
Quentin Tarantino at his Best and Worst
Only a Tarantino film can give you the feeling of pure boredom and electric intensity all at the same time. Both can come of simple conversation and over-the-top action. “Death Proof” is the quintessential Tarantino film, where he has long, drawn out conversations that are constantly interrupted yet free flowing and very natural as the characters talk about everyday things (pop culture) and use quirky old sayings. Tarantino is easily the greatest writer you could think of for pure dialogue and even though that’s his greatest asset, it’s also his biggest flaw. The film is cut into two halves and the first half is excellent. The ending is great (in both halves), but man, did that middle nearly put you to sleep or what?!?! It’s not that it was incredibly boring material. The problem was: This was two similar movies smashed into one, with a ton of common parallels, Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), being the main figure. The second half doubles back on the first half; ultimately repeating itself. The women are powerful. They can control men because men are pigs and only think with their little heads as the women in charge tease them with their sexuality. Even though the girls aren’t whores, they surely push the limits because when they don’t put out, they’ll get a guys respect- a common theme with both the first half and the second coming from eight different women who all think the same. The standout female performance came from Vanessa Ferlito (Arlene) who brought a certain flare to the screen that made the viewer care for her more than anyone else. She nailed this performance and carried the first half along with Russell.
The dialogue (and there is a ton of it) is, as usual, captivating at the start. “Death Proof” is a faller, not a riser, but the action packed ending is strong enough to give this fair remarks. This is a common issue with Tarantino. “Kill Bill Vol. 2” may have had the longest, most drawn out ending this side of “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly,” and the worst part is that we know exactly what’s going to happen, because, like most Tarantino films, the women usually come out on top. The first half of the film is flawless. The conversation is perfect. The mysteriousness of Stuntman Mike- who has a thing for car crashes and testing the “death proof” slogan that goes along with his “scary” car- is great and the best part is that we never know where the movie is going to end (Or at least this story). Kurt Russell actually gave a very strong performance. His look was great and when he imitates John Wayne that should crack everyone up even if they don’t know what John Wayne sounded like. The ending to the first half of the movie is great and the look of the picture is incredible as Tarantino pays homage to the 70s style look. You have random cutaways, intentionally poor editing where the conversation will skip, double back, and some parts will completely cut away (During a lap dance, too) at what feels like an inopportune time, but that’s what makes it so great. The texture and overall look is dazzling right from the very first shot of one of the girls feet rockin’ away- to a modernized Scorsese styled, catchy beat- on the dashboard against a light blue sky. Tarantino, stylistically, has a style all his own and this was great to see.
The second half of the film brings in four more women that walk, talk, and act just like the four we seen in the first half. The film doubles back on itself and repeats the first half over again, just with different girls. The conversations are the same (all about sex), but there’s one difference: “these girls will fight back.” That will bring us to a wonderful stunt worked, high speed, well choreographed, and even better shot car chase that just doesn’t want to end and I guess, in a way, that’s okay. We deserve to indulge in a thrilling sequence for as long as it was after Tarantino toyed with our concentration and focus; dulling us with repetitive banter. Zoe Bell, the stunt women, had too many speaking parts. She’s not a good actress where the first group of girls were much, much better and more engrossing. The last four girls weren’t all that effective (Maybe because we seen it all before just minutes earlier). The final sequence will leave you laughing, not only because it’s ridiculous, but how long it lasts and the camera work along with Russell’ face is very funny. “Death Proof” was, for the most part, an enjoyable film, but this same old Tarantino song and dance is running on thin ice. Conversation, as always, in a Tarantino film is starting to take over more than ever for plot and the second half of “Death Proof” nearly ruins a nearly flawless first half. There’s not much here in regards of plot and a lot of people are going to be getting sick of tired, pointless, going-no-where talk. It’s time Tarantino reinvents himself.
There is a Reason Why This Bombed Folks,
Because this is terrible!
Review: You may have read my comment for the Grindhouse double feature, but this is my official take on the second part.
Death Proof is supposed to be a spoof on 70’s schlock b movies ,but this isn’t. The only thing 70’s here is Stuntman Mike’s(Kurt Russel)car. The story is really nothing. It’s pretty much a bunch of really annoying chicks chat and chat about nothing for an eternity and then chat some more. Stuntman Mike finally shows up and his character is hardly looked upon. Russel is awesome here and has a great way of becoming charming to chilling in a matter of seconds.
Stuntman Mike wants to kill people. For reasons unknown. The kill sequences are pretty cool and is the best scene in the entire movie for more reasons than one. The women here are so boring that I found myself quenched with blood lust and was rooting for Stuntman Mike. Stuntman Mike is easily one of the most cool villains ever, or in this case, a hero.
Death Proof wastes more of our time with another set of even more unlikeable chicks with more inane chit-chat. These ones were so bad that they left one of there own to the hands of a drooling lunatic to satisfy their selfish desires. I hated that and wanted Mike to waste them too. This second half of Death Proof was weak. Seeing Mike chase down the unlikeable chicks and taunt them was entertaining, but the revenge chase was unspectacular in epic proportions. I hated seeing the one awesome Stuntman Mike become a whiny little bitch in a split second and the ending was atrocious.
The Last Word: A Tarantino ego trip. This was dedicated to himself. Russel should have gotten A lot more screen time and to see him finally play the bad guy would have been a treat, but he is almost nonexistent here. Russel aside, I hated this movie. Despite the many stunts, Death Proof wipes out. This is on my sh*t list. One of 2007’s worst. The only way I would ever see this again is if I was forced to do so at gunpoint.
