Death Proof movie review and parents guide

First the movie review
The movie itself is really good. I do not know why people criticize this movie so much because it has a great plot and great casting. The movie is slow in the beginning but if you pay attention the conversations are actually interesting.the cast includes Kurt Russell, Vanessa Ferlito, Rosairo Dawson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose McGowan, Zoë Bell, and Eli Roth. It is feeled with action, drama, comedy, and suspense great fun.

Now the parents guide

The movie has a lot of language in it that should not be repeated but if your child knows this is wrong there is no problem.

The violence is pretty gory and realistic but all of it is very brief and if you blink you will miss it.

The sexual content is very low the only sexual content is a woman giving a man a lap dance while fully clothed and there is a lot of sexual dialogue between women and it is pretty graphic dialogue as well.

The people in the first half of the movie drink until drunk and they smoke cigarettes, weed, and cocaine.

The movie does have a positive message by saying if you do wrong it will come back to haunt you.

Tarantino's half of "Grindhouse" is entertaining, but very gritty. Mature teens and up!

"Death Proof" is a Grindhouse movie by Quentin Tarantino released in 2007.
In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez released the double feature "Grindhouse" in American theatres. Two full-length feature films at the price of one, recreating the look of old exploitation films. Due to it failing at the box office, since many people did not get the idea of what a grindhouse movie is, the movies were released seperately elsewhere in the worl and on DVD, in extended cuts.
"Death Proof" is Tarantino's half of Grindhouse.
With much respect and much praise for its other works, this IS the weaker half. But that may be just because of the fact that this movie is not what you'd expect from an exploitation movie. The movie has Tarantino written all over it, featuring his typical, witty dialogues and refreshing characters and style. And for fans of Tarantino, it is very entertaining and recognizable. But it isn't quite what a grindhouse movie is. Even though having the typical rough look and a rather silly plot, it tries much to much to be artful.
What you get is a good Tarantino movie on the one hand, but on the other hand, a so-so exploitation flick. Still, the movie is no waste of time, having an excellent screenplay filled with superb dialogues and recognizable scenes. It is not his best, though.
(SPOILERS may follow:)
"Death Proof" overall is meant to be an exploitation flick, and as such is very rough and gritty. There is one splatter scene, which is really gory:
A man and a woman sit in a car when suddenly the man makes the car bump so hard that the woman is hit against the windshield. He does this repeatedly until she all covered in blood and finally dies. Right after this scene, he crashes into a car filled with young women. We see the impact detailed and from various instances: one woman gets thrown out of the car.
Another woman gets bumped around and is hit by glass shards flying around. Another woman's leg is severed and falls onto the road (bloody). Another woman's face is run over by a moving weel, causing it become extremely bloody (brief).
Overall, this is the only graphic scene, but it is VERY graphic. It is also rather disturbing, because the killer is a psychopath that kills woman for fun.
Later in the movie, a group of women takes revenge on him and beat him up violently. He gets shot in the arm before this happens. Everything after this scene is rather tame compared to this sequence.
The language is very strong, featuring 89 uses of the f-word, some uses of the n-word in a non-racist context, as well as some milder profanity.
The first crowd of women smokes marijuana. It is not depicted negatively.
A woman gives a lapdance to a man in an extended scene (this scene is not present in the "Grindhouse" double feature, only in the seperate version). Even though lasting for about 3 minutes, nothing too strong is seen. It is meant to be very sexy, but not actually sexual.
Due to its occasional gory and rough images, it should not be watched by younger viewers, only by mature teens and up.

Fun car chase movie is boring at times.

This is a very fun movie, granted it is slow, but it dose do a good job of the car chase genra but it has many issues that it could have been without:
1. Violence is quick but brutal and bloody, only 5 people die in the movie, but their deaths are grusom and very bloody, A 20 minute car chase leads to mike breaking his right arm, being punched repeatedly and kicked in the head.
2. The sex is all talk, but there is a ton, a girl gives mike a clothed lap dance.
3. The F word is constant thruout the movie and most every oter swear word gets utterd more than once.
4. The first group of girls smoke weed, drinknig in a bar.
So overal this is a fun movie for mature teens 13 and up

One of the GREATS

Even if you don't like this movie, your teenagers will. I went to see Grindhouse with my friends when the double feature came out, and we all loved it. The age group most likely to enjoy Death Proof would be from thirteen to around twenty-seven, depending on maturity. Some twelve year olds could handle it, and I'm sure a few thirty- and forty- somethings loved it as much as teenagers, but generally, 13-27. Great movie- the Robert Rodriguez half of Grindhouse was better though. They ought to keep them together when releasing on DVD.

Death Proof

Not exactly wholesome family entertainment, but it isn't as bad as CSM makes it out to be, either. Sure, there's F-words galore, and some bursts of extreme violence, but I think most teens could handle it.
All in all, I loved this film. It's probably only for Quentin Tarantino fans, since many will probably become bored by the multiple scenes of dialogue. But I was very entertained by the dialogue, and the last 20 minutes are exhilarating. Death Proof has, easily, the best car chase I've ever seen in a movie. The ending will make you want to stand up and cheer. This movie was just alot of fun! I loved it.
