5.0 out of 5 stars Great exploitation film. Repeat: EXPLOITATION! October 28, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
A lot of folks have trouble with this film. They are turned off by the over-the-top violence, mayhem, and sex. What they don't understand is that it is nothing more than a really well-made exploitation film. Remember those? Movies which had no higher agenda than providing plenty of fun, cheap thrills, like gratuitous sex and violence? Many of them were made in the late '60s and throughout the '70s? Like Women In Prison films? Blaxploitation? Car-racing movies? Slasher films? Russ Meyer movies? Anyone? Well, for those who DO remember, and who don't need every flick they see to contain lofty statements about the nature of mankind and the universe, you will love this movie. The cast is great: I mean, come on, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Fred Williamson... even Quentin, who can't act, is utilized effectively. Clooney has a great role which no one seemed to appreciate, Hayek does a lewd dance with a snake which will make your shorts explode, and Cheech Marin is, as always, a laugh riot. This film is at fever pitch every step of the way and contains plenty of Rodriguez camera-acrobatics and clever Tarantino dialogue. Please understand, people, this film IS trash. Good, fun, doesn't-take-itself-at-all-seriously trash! God love it!

"From Dusk 'Till Dawn" is not a great film by any means, but it is entertaining...up to a point. The first half of the film is an effective, stylish and creepy noir/suspense film, with director Robert Rodriguez showing uncharacteristic restraint in his film direction. Clooney and (surprisingly) Tarantino are good in their roles, and play off of each other well. Unfortunately, the second half of the film becomes increasingly silly, as Robert Rodriguez succumbs to his fetish for over-the-top action and cartoonish violence, quickly undoing all the creepy suspense that was so carefully built up over the film's first half and settling for a parody-like tone for the rest of the film.

If done right, over-the-top horror film parodies can be very entertaining, as the first two "Evil Dead" films show. However, that sort of tone usually works best in a short feature format (such as the "Tales From The Crypt" television series). If the film is to be feature length, then a good deal of imagination is needed to sustain interest, otherwise a sense of a fatigue sets in. It is imagination that makes the "Evil Dead" films work as well as they do, and is what's missing in "From Dusk 'Till Dawn" (endless vampire explosions notwithstanding).

Still, if you're a "B-Movie" horror fan, the film definitely has its moments; besides the two leads, there's a great supporting cast (put together especially for genre fans), fun (albeit goofy) make-up effects, plenty of scantily-clad women, and buckets of fake blood, making the film an acceptable (if padded out) "B" genre film. Overall, a three-star film (out of five).

Regarding the Echo Bridge Blu-Ray release, it is truly a lazy catalog release title, if I've ever seen one.

5.0 out of 5 stars "If you make a noise, Mr. 44 makes a noise..." November 7, 2003
Format:DVD
Having trouble finding a good vampire flick that's exciting and scary? Looking for something that doesn't abide by regular horror genera rules? "From Dusk Till Dawn" may be the one to choose. With a sizzling screenplay by Quentin Tarantino and perfectly directed by Robert Rodriguez, this is a horror/thriller to remember.
The Gecko brothers are two extremely violent criminals who end up taking a family hostage. The family is forced to drive the notorious brothers to the end of the border. They end up making a pit stop at a Mexican bar, where the brothers are supposed to meet their contact. However, things get out of hand when it turns out that the place is contaminated with vampire strippers and truckers. You add all of those elements together and you get one hell of a ride that you'll never forget.
I'm not the biggest fan of vampires, but I thought this was an EXCELLENT movie. It's unpredictable and exhilarating. You have no idea where the movie will take you until it's all said and done. This is not your ordinary vampire flick, and that's what makes this movie so great. It's a breath of fresh air and so much more.
The acting really makes the movie what it is. George Clooney gives a remarkable performance (this was before he was the big star that he is today). Quentin Tarantino does a great job of contributing dark and chaotic humor to the film with his role. Other major players include Harvey Keitel, Juliet Lewis, Cheech Marin and plenty more. The screenplay by Tarantino is great and never misses a beat. It's packed with snappy dialogue that one would not expect to hear in a horror movie. Rodriguez does an exceptional job of directing as well.
I don't have the fully loaded version of the movie, so I am stuck with the plain version for now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Zero effort put into this release and it shows May 15, 2011
By FeZiR
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I purchased this movie on blu-ray because it was cheap and I never owned the DVD. As I was opening the package I noticed an unfamiliar name: Echo Bridge Home Entertainment. If what I saw with this release is indicative of their other releases, do yourself a favor and steer clear. If you want this movie with a decent quality transfer and NOTHING else, then this may work well for you. However, know that it really has nothing else going for it. The disc looks cheaply made and actually has the UPC on it (never seen that one before). The menu is very minimalistic, just like the rest of the disc. The only two options are to play the movie and select scenes (the scene selector is painfully slow, by the way). There are no special features whatsoever (not even a trailer, which was considered pathetic even for a DVD). There aren't even subtitles or other languages. And these remain the same two options during movie playback, just play and scene selection. Plus the menu is so poorly designed that if you hit play again during the movie, where common sense says the movie would pause, it actually starts all over; first taking you back to the unskippable MPAA rating info and Miramax logo.

All in all, it's safe to say that Echo Bridge did not put any effort into this release, and personally I feel if some kid was making a bootleg of this movie, he'd do a better job.

Good scary movie. I don't like George Clooney, but he was good in this movie, because he played a bad guy. There's Dusk Til Dawn 2, but it wasn't the same.
