Death Proof (2007) Review:

This B-movie was made along with Robert Rodrigez “Planet Terror” and both were released together as the Grindhouse pack. Tarantino movie is pretty unusual in that he features a villain that kills by driving girls in his car. In that, the movie is absolutely unique. The villain is a really, really cool, and the natural coldness and roughness of Kurt Russell fits well to the character. However, I thought that the strength of that movie really came from the girl characters. The casting choice for them is pretty unusual as they are not the usual slim beauty standard that we use to see in most Hollywood movies. Instead, they all have little imperfections and generous curves that make them terribly sexy, and a lot more real. Each character is different and really intriguing, not the usual bunch of bimbo waiting to be slaughtered.

Once more, the foot fetishism of Quentin Tarantino is present here and you’ll find a lot of feet close-up

However, except for the great characters played by great actors, I found there was not much more in this movie. I am a huge Tarantino fan, but I will risk saying that Tarantino did not succeed at creating an original and intriguing atmosphere as he always succeeded in his previous movies. As for the B-movie aspect of the movie, I found it was not exploited enough and largely preferred the Robert Rodriguez movie “Planet Terror”.
