Rotten: For all its visual bravura and occasional bursts of antic inspiration, it feels trivial, the work of a kid who can't stop grabbing his favorite shiny plaything.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, August 21, 2009
Fresh: The true moral universe in which the film unfolds is that of the spaghetti westerns...: a world in which the strong are above the law and the way to tell the good guys from the bad guys is not by their acts but by the kind of hats they wear.
- Christopher Orr, The New Republic, Thursday, August 20, 2009
Nice little Tarantino flick of revenge set against the backdrop of WWII. The actors are top notch and the carnage is just right.

If you can get by the gore of it all, It's actually a very funny movie -- a LOT of imagination went into it -- you have to watch closely!

I don't know how Quentin Tarantino will ever make a better film than Inglourious Basterds. This is Tarantino's best work since Pulp Fiction. I waited patiently for a year to see this film and when it finally came out, I went to see it and was blown away. Christoph Waltz delivers one of the best performances as Col Hans Landa and Brad Pitt is also amusing as Lt. Aldo Raine. Quentin Tarantino has crafted another phenomenal film, and everything you'd expect from a Tarantino film is here. This film is vintage Tarantino, it's got clever, witty dialogue, stylized violence a terrific soundtrack and touches of dark humour. Don't watch this film expecting a lot of action, expect a Quentin Tarantino film, and if you've seen Pulp Fiction you'll know exactly what I mean by that. Inglourious Basterds is the finest film by Quentin Tarantino in a long time. As with every one of Tarantino's films, the plot is richly detailed, the acting is superb, the characters are memorable and theres of course stylized violence. I have viewed Quentin Tarantino's previous films, Kill Bill and Death proof; both are good films. However, Inglourious Basterds tops both films by a long shot. Tarantino pays Tribute to the similar titled Enzo G. Castelari in name only. Castelari's original film opened the door for many different storylines to be written about a squad of Americans killing Nazis. In Tarantino's case, Jewish soldiers getting a little payback. Like every other film by Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds is a superbly crafted film that definitely entertains. Some scenes do drag on, but in the end, it doesn't matter due to the solid cast of actors. This is a new vision by master Quentin Tarantino, a film that showcases what his vision of World War II would be. Tarantino definitely knows how to entertain an audience, and with Basterds he serves up his most epic, boldness and ambitious film yet. Along with Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds will most likely be seen as one of his best films. I'm definitely looking forward to Tarantino's next film, and I keep on wondering how will he be able to top this one?
