I didn't know much about this movie before I saw it, only the limited TV
ads, so for the first 30 to 45 minutes of the movie, I wasn't
sure what I was watching. This movie appeared to be about a
police chase in Texas through the eyes of the fugitives. Okay,
somewhat intelligent, very gory. I think I understand this
|From Dusk Till Dawn|
|Stars:||George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino|
The next thing I know, the two bad guys and their
abducted family of hostages in a motor home find themselves
across the Mexican border in a nightclub called the Titty
Twister. Okay, pretty meaningless with quite a bit of nudity
(not like that's a bad thing... :) but I felt there had to be a reason
for all this. All of a sudden, all the dancers and bar bouncers morph into
As if it were the most normal thing in the world, the
the bikers and truckers in the nightclub start driving stakes
into the dancers. Okay, sure. It's like, "Ah, crap, Martha.
It's them damned vampires again. Go grab that pool cue while I
flip this table over and skewer them on the legs."
So what you
have is a lot of vampires jumping around and biting people, and
a lot of bikers and truckers trying to jab them with sticks.
Yeah. I should have seen that coming. I'm sure that this has
happened to everyone at some time or another. You're enjoying a
bottle of whiskey, then vampires start trying to suck your blood.
That sounds perfectly natural. Sheesh.
This movie lacks any
intelligent story whatsoever. What a waste of special effects.
I can believe anyone would like this movie. If it's any indication,
probably the best part of the whole film is George Clooney's cool tattoo. So if you
really like seeing vampires explode you'll just love this movie, as
the vampires do explode very nicely. The other
99.994% of the population should avoid this flick altogether.
It's just ill-conceived and badly written.
