Plot Summary:
"Originally released as a second-billed movie part of Grindhouse, Death Proof, a throwback to the 1970s exploitation road-chase movies, features Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike, a former Hollywood stunt race car driver who targets and kills women with his "death-proof" stunt car. In Act I, Mike surfaces in Austin, Texas to target a group of women whom he knows; Jungle Julia (Sydney Poitier) an outgoing, dope-smoking, radio DJ/fashion model meeting her old school friends for a night on the town whom are sentimental model Arlene (Vanessa Ferlita), and local bad-girl Shanna (Jordan Ladd), as well as bar-nut hippie Pam (Rose McGowen) who tries to make Mike notice her, unaware of his sociopath and misogynist tendencies. In Act II, Stuntman Mike surfaces in Tennessee where he randomly picks another another group of women to stalk all of whom work in the motion picture business; Abernathy (Rosario Dawson) is a make-up girl and stand-in wanting a chance of pace in her life. Lee (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a naive B-movie actress. Kim (Traci Whoms) is a tough-minded stunt woman always wanting action. And Zoe (Zoe Bell) is a fellow stunt woman from New Zealand visiting her friends. However, the second set of girls proves more though to get, and because of a combination of bad luck and Stuntman Mike's carelessness, the girls decide to turn the tables on their tormentor for revenge of their own."

Review Date: 22 October 2007 My Rating: out of 5


I checked this out recently at a preview screening and I have to say that with nothing to compare it to (hate piracy) it was an amazing 114 minutes worth of laughs, thrills and bloodshed.

The film follows Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) as he stalks two groups of girls in his death proof car. The first group features DJ Jungle Julia and her posse which includes Shanna (Jordan Ladd) and Arlene a.k.a Butterfly (Vanessa Ferlito). The girls head out to a bar where they meet Mike and he soon sets out to dispatch of them in grisly ways. Fourteen months later, Stuntman Mike sets his sights on another group of girls (played by Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Zoë Bell). This time however, he picked the wrong girls to play with.

The film has so far been tragically misunderstood by audiences (my local multiplex even had a notice up informing patrons that the print was supposed to look old and roughed up!). Tarantino plays with Grindhouse conventions for maximum effect yet no-one seems to have gotten the joke.

The cast is amazing, the performances are wonderful, there’s action-a-plenty, cool tunes and loads more fun stuff to look forward to including the goriest car crash ever committed to celluloid.

I (obviously) would have preferred to have seen Grindhouse in cinemas here, but Tarantino has ensured that his UK fans have enough extra goodies to make it worth your while checking out. I haven’t laughed so hard in months…pure genius!
