Inglourious Basterds


Jeff Nelson

If you are to see any war film this summer, Inglourious Basterds is the one to see.

There have been a lot of big blockbuster movies being released this summer. Inglourious Basterds was one of the most anticipated movies on my list of movies to see. There is no doubt that Inglourious Basterds will be seen by many people just because of the cast and director.

The story is interesting from every aspect. It is about Nazis and a group of people who are trying to take down Hitler himself to shut down the massacre. It gets very complex because there is a large froup of people attempting this and they are unaware that they are all after the same goal. The movie shuffles rapidly through characters and story lines throughout, but it keeps the audience's attention.

Acting is important in a film, such as this. With bad acting, situations seem fake and laughable. Fortunately, this film does not have bad acting. Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Mélanie Laurent, and many others did a spectacular job. Each line is delivered perfectly and could not have been done better.

Every Quentin Tarantino film that is released has stunning visuals. Inglourious Basterds follows that trend perfectly. Each scalp that is removed, every drop of blood, every gun shot looks realistic. There is not nearly as much blood or violence as was used in Kill Bill...Vol. 1 & 2. It is the people who are exaggerated, since this film does not concentrate on blood or gore. Instead, it centers on story, characters, and what any person would want to do to Hitler and his army.

Overall, Inglourious Basterds is one of the best films of the summer. It is a bit long, but I did not see many scenes that were unnecessary. I highly respect Quentin Tarantino and his cast as they have made a great film. If you are to see any war film or just any film this summer, Inglourious Basterds is the one to see.

My Rating = Four and One Half Stars
