Brad Pitt takes no prisoners in Quentin Tarantino’s high-octane WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds. As war rages in Europe, a Nazi-scalping squad of American soldiers, known to their enemy as “The Basterds,” is on a daring mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich. Bursting with “action, hair-trigger suspense and a machine-gun spray of killer dialogue” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Inglourious Basterds is “another Tarantino masterpiece” (Jake Hamilton, CBS-TV)!

In the opening scene, Landa comes to interview a French dairy farmer regarding the whereabouts of Jewish families in the area. One family remains unaccounted for. As their conversation unfolds, it becomes chillingly evident that Landa will not rest until he ascertains the location of the family he is looking for. He slowly and carefully unnerves the farmer--masterfully alternating between charm and thinly veiled threat, until he obtains the information he needs.
As I stated, I.B. is a movie, a work of fiction. And it is a Tarantino movie. Meaning you can count on there being graphic violence, stunning dialogue, and unexpected plot twists. Landa's character figures prominently throughout, as does that of a young Jewish woman named Shoshanna Dreyfus. As for the film's title, The Basterds are an eight man group of guerrilla soldiers headed up by Lt. Aldo Raine, played by Brad Pitt. As Raine is part Apache, he tells his men that their strategy will be that of an Apache resistance. Use your imagination. Eventually Raine's and Landa's paths collide. The result is both entertaining and completely unexpected.
Next I want to comment on the movie. I'm amazed by the negative reviews. First, if you can't stand exploitative violence...why are you watching something with Tarantino's name on it? Also, if you're judging it negatively because of people cheering the violence of the one side against the violence of the other....congratulations, you've just met irony. Tarantino's movies are very unique and they are certainly not meant for everyone. I haven't liked everything about every one but I have liked something about most. Good, bad or something else, they're always interesting. Does that mean everyone should experience them? No. It is definitely not for everyone and a lot probably walk away with the wrong impression.
The lone bright spot was Christoph Waltz. The classic antagonist. In every sense of the word. I mean, his character is like a shark: cold-eyed, sociopathic, sadistic. He could have been a stupid two-dimensional character too. But he wasn't...
