In Death Proof -- director Tarantino's take on such peddle-to-the-metal shockers as White Line Fever -- Kurt Russell stars as an engine-revving psychopath who prefers to take out his beautiful victims at 200 mph. Originally released into theaters on a double bill with Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror under the Grindhouse banner, Death Proof finds a group of ladies out on the town pitted against a mysterious figured named Stuntman Mike (Russell), whose vintage automobile has been partially modified to withstand even the most extreme auto collision. Though the maniacal driver himself… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Smart attention is paid to some interesting tensions between old and new in areas as varied as pop culture, photography, effects work, automobile construction, telephony and audio recording technology."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"By the end of the film, Tarantino delivers on the action with a car chase that will get anyone's engine revving."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Tarantino's very bloody half of Grindhouse."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Clearly the work of somebody who has ingested Carol J. Clover's Men, Women, and Chainsaws, yet it is also more"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Death Proof is superbly made. There's a terrible tension watching these beautiful and spirited young women getting too close to the flame, followed by enormous relief when the mood changes in the second story."
‑ Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald
"Much of this material is terrific in purely cinematic terms; one of Tarantino's saving graces as a filmmaker is his often surprising capacity for contemplative moments and patches of plotlessness."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Death Proof doesn't simply comment on its genre inspirations - it adds to their very legacy."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Freed from the constraints of the Grindhouse package, Death Proof can now spread out, find its proper rhythms, and emerge as another excellent Tarantino classic."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
""raja" koja voli Tarantina %u0107e imati itekako razloga da mu oprosti ovaj eksperiment."
‑ Dragan Antulov, Index.hr
"A well-controlled buildup of expectations, suspense, and character contrast."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Although overall impact of Tarantino's homage to chick-driven actioners and auto demolition derbies remains about the same, pic's second half, in particular, benefits from the further detailing it's now received."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"As an anomaly, a curio, even as half a movie, it's a winner. As a stand-alone feature, it struggles to stand up to close scrutiny."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"A comprovação de que, nas mãos de um diretor que conhece a fundo a técnica e a história do Cinema, até mesmo um exercício de estilo sem grandes ambições pode representar uma experiência apaixonante para quem ama e respeita a Sétima Arte."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Feels much longer than it is."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The problem for Tarantino in Death Proof is that the girl talk that occupies so much of the running time is anything but true to the culture 50 years ago. The setting is contempo, but the movie style is period"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
