"RIVETING AND VICIOUSLY FUNNY!"
-Rex Reed, The New York Observer
BRAD PITT takes no prisoners in Quentin Tarantino's high-octane WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds. As war rages in Europe, a Nazi-scalping squad of American soldiers, known to their enemy as "The Basterds," is on a daring mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Bursting with "action, hair-trigger suspense and a machine-gun spray of killer dialogue" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Inglourious Basterds is "another Tarantino masterpiece" (Jake Hamilton, CBS-TV)!
World War II buffs will hate this movie because it completely rewrites history. As for me, I don't give a damn. My two favorite movies ever - Quills and Gladiator - also rewrite history but are excellent just the same. Besides, this is no serious war drama, this is a Quentin Tarantino movie (one of his few good ones), which means there are a lot of memorable characters and a lot of blood, explosions and death.
Rated R (MPAA)
