Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) has a death proof car, meaning a stuntcar that is secured in such a way that its driver will survive fatal crashes virtually unscathed - which is of course vital for carstunts in movies. Thing is, Stuntman Mike doesn't work in movies anymore, he now travels from town to town always on the lookout for cute girls he can involve in fatal crashes with him being the sole survivor ... and he has just taken out a quintet of girls (including a blond Rose McGowan) in Texas.

Switch to Tennessee: Stuntgirl Zoe Bell (herself) has just come to pay a visit to her friends Kim (Tracie Thoms) and Abby (Rosario Dawson) - but actually she has mainly come to drive a Dodge Challenger, just like the one used in the film Vanishing Point ... but not only dricve it, ride on its hood at full speed - which is when Stuntman Mike catches up with the girls to do his thing. Thing is though that these girls are not as easy to kill as the others since Zoe is a gifted stuntgirl and Kim an ace driver - plus Kim is packing a gun ... and before you know it, the hunter has become the hunted and after an extended carchase Kim forces Stuntman Mike into an accident, after which the girls pul him out of his car and beat him to a pulp ...


Let me start it like this: Death Proof is not a bad movie, it features some great car action, it features some characters you can actually care about, and Kurt Russell gives a gret badass performance.

But: The film lacks proper pacing, is overpopulated by minor characters, features way too many irrelevant scenes, and the long stretches of dialogue are far not as witty as in his earlier movies. Plus, the pop culture references that Tarantino has become famous for and that were sort of hip in the 1990's have become increasingly stale and annoying. Plus the film doesn't seem to do the B actionmovies of the 1970's it is said to pay hommage to any justice.


By the way, Death Proof was originally part of the double feature movie Grindhouse which was chopped in two after the film's failure at the box office thanks to a misguided publicity campaign. Robert Rodriguez' Planet Terror is its companion.
