Beautifully directed pure, unfiltered madness, soaked in a bath of hallucinogenics and style with an overlay of magnificent tunes.
Rough at the start and rough at the end. The middle part, where it's really a war film, is clearly where it shines. The dialogue gets better, there's more urgency and everything moves. The action is also a bit les showy and slow-mo heavy.
The end goes full schlock and lost me again. Including power rangers level villain outfit, large electric beams and lots of grandstanding and evil-plan-explaining.
Gal Gadot is terrific and magnetic. The only reason to look forward to that Justice league flick.
Zero regrets about driving 400km to see this in 70mm. Got a little introduction about the history of 70mm film and some of its merits before the start. Very cool experience, including the overture and intermission to set the mood (didn't realize until now that intermissions aren't standard in the US, they are here).
This film obviously looked great, obviously has stellar dialogue and obviously has awesome performances. Scene after scene of trademark Tarantino suspense building until an explosion of spectacular violence breaks out, just to start building up to another.
Pretty much loved everything about it.
