Inglourious Basterds
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Quentin Tarantino


A group of hardened Nazi killers stalk their prey in Nazi-occupied France as a Jewish cinema owner plots to take down top-ranking SS officers during the official premiere of a high-profile German propaganda film. As far as Lt. Aldo Raine -- aka "Aldo the Apache" (Brad Pitt) -- is concerned, the only good Nazi is a dead Nazi. Raine's mission is to strike fear into the heart of Adolf Hitler by brutally murdering as many goose-steppers as possible, or die trying. In order to accomplish that goal, Lt. Raine recruits a ruthless team of cold-blooded killers known as "The Basterds" which includes baseball-bat-wielding Bostonian Sgt. Donnie Donowitz (aka "The Bear Jew," Eli Roth) and steely psychopath Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger), among others. When the Basterds' secret rendezvous with turncoat German actress Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) goes awry, they learn that the Nazis will be staging the French premiere of "The Nation's Pride," a rousing propaganda film based on the exploits of German hero Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brhl), at a modest theater owned by Jewish cinephile Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mlanie Laurent), posing as a Gentile after the brutal murder of her family by the ruthless Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). As the Basterds hatch an explosive plan to take out as many Nazis as possible at the premiere, they remain completely oblivious to the fact that Shoshanna, too, longs to bring the Third Reich to its knees, and that she's willing to sacrifice her beloved theater in the process.

Press

4 stars out of 5 -- "QUENTIN TARANTINO allows full reign to his boyish enthusiasm with INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, which takes an impish delight in sending up such Second World War adventures as THE DIRTY DOZEN and WHERE EAGLES DARE..."

- Richard Mowe, Box Office

"[A]n increasingly entertaining fantasia in which the history of World War II is wildly reimagined....The picture is completely distinctive piece of American pop art with a strong Euro flavor that's new for the director."

- Todd McCarthy, Variety
