DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Drama War - This is a very violent but also, like most of Quentin Tarantino's films, very talky WWII drama that runs over two and a half hours and is largely subtitled. This is neither as action-oriented nor as comedic as the advertising makes it out to be, and Brad Pitt is just one player of what is an ensemble cast. The target audience is young adult males.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Excellent With Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino has made his best movie since Pulp Fiction.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds” is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he's the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Within the first frames of writer/director Quentin Tarantino's audacious dismantling of history, you may feel as if you took a hit of pure oxygen. His tall tale, with its tense and jangly pacing, is immediately riveting.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 138 moviegoers:
For once the critics are right, "Inglorious Bastards" is a GREAT MOVIE! It received very high reviews from all ages, both males and females. As with any movie, there were a small percentage who didn't care for it, but the vast majority loved it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In the first year of the German occupation of France, Shosanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent) witnesses the execution of her family at the hand of Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). Shosanna narrowly escapes and flees to Paris where she forges a new identity as the owner and operator of a cinema.

Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift, shocking acts of retribution. Later known to their enemy as "the basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) on a mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Fates converge under a cinema marquis, where Shosanna is poised to carry out a revenge plan of her own....
