Planet Terror (2007) Review:

This B-movie was made along with Quentin Tarantino “Death Proof” and both were released together as the Grindhouse pack. As for Tarantino’s movie, the strength of that movie comes mainly from the characters. Bruce Willis is pretty cool as the villain, and I really liked the couple of doctors. Funny thing, I really hated the main hero (Freddy Rodríguez) who I found absolutely not credible and ridiculous with his knife… this was probably done on purpose to mimic real B-movies, but I didn’t enjoyed it. Other than that, the B-movie aspect is well-exploited. The way Rodriguez plays with special effects to simulate that the film roll is more and more damaged as the movie goes is clever. Aside from that, the other special effects, monsters transformations and brain explosion are really good looking.

But the real highlight of the movie was Cherry Darling, I was absolutely conquered by the concept of the machine-gun leg! This simple idea made my movie and I wondered why no one has thought about this before.

As in real B-movies, the story itself is very basic and there is nothing exciting about it, but this is easily compensated by the awesome look of the film: it is all about cool graphic and candies for the eyes. A must watch for those that enjoyed other movies by Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Machete) and B-movies in general.
