Inglourious Basterds (2009) (Movies To See Before You Die - Thriller/War Movies)

18 Sep, 2012 | Movies To See Before You Die / Thrillers

A film talking about Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a group of young soldiers planning to kill their leader Hitler and a theater owner lady dying to fulfill the same wish, seems like a serious war movie featuring some brutal killings and deadly war events. But only one man could turn it into a fun filled thrilling ride with several comic touches intelligently incorporated in such a tense plot. And that has to be the one and only QUENTIN TARANTINO, who once again completely wins over the viewers with his splendid work aptly titled INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS.

Beginning with a brilliant 20 minutes long sequence with only two people talking over the table and many more similar scenes where they are just chatting over with each other for more than 10-15 minutes, the film may not be everybody’s cup of tea looking for some usual dose of entertainment. But if you are really interested in the medium then as the movie grows bigger, you are sure going to enjoy its magnificent execution, direction, acting and the dialogues immensely along with a highly impressive background score making a rock solid impact on the viewer after its grand culmination.

Following his own style of narration, Tarantino divides the film into various chapters, wherein some remarkable characters converse in more than three languages about its different story plots progressing towards a mutual destination. The film slowly grows and then takes on as a racing motorbike speeding towards a Big Crash without any fear. It has a beautifully written script supported by some superb dialogues & towering performances lead by Christopher Waltz who rightly deserved the OSCAR received for his amazing & shocking act of a cruel Colonel. The actor in fact clearly steals the show and once again proves the fact that Tarantino does have a gifted eye for a perfect casting.
Inglourious Basterds does not hold itself back or shies away from showing some gruesome blood on the screen which has always been one of the key features of Tarantino’s films. But here he amusingly serves you a fine blend of terror, blood and humour which is certainly not an easy task for a director. In a way he makes you enjoy watching all the killings in a very unusual manner which could have been done only by Tarantino alone. So all Quentin fans are sure going to love this 150 minutes of excellence without any doubt. Apart from his visionary direction the film also deserves a special mention both for its outstanding Cinematography and a stunning background score which has been used perfectly in the film with just the right timings.

But don't go for any accurate historical references in the film as it’s a pure fiction. Just watch it as a must, if you love the Tarantino kind of movie-making style and have fun in its gripping, shocking and thrilling script written around that ghastly event of the History which was never brought onto the screen in such an entertaining way before.
