I finally got around to renting Death Proof. This film features Kurt Russel as Stunt man Mike-a serial killer who uses his stunt car as his weapon. Overall the film is worth seeing-if only to see the amazing car duel at the end. On the downside, the film has far too much pointless dialog. The first part of the movie follows Stunt man Mike’s initial targets for what seems like hours of empty conversation about nothing. It is, in many ways, a relief when Mike finally kills them-at last they stop talking. In the second part of the film Stunt man Mike is stalking a new set of targets. Unfortunately, they talk even more than the first set. Mercifully, the senseless blather ends with the amazing car duel mentioned above. Having seen the uncut version, I can see why the theatrical release was cut down and released as a double feature with Planet Terror. Cutting the film down to about 45 minutes (or an hour, tops) would make for a film well worth seeing. I would recommend seeing the movie-but I would strongly suggest fast forwarding through the tedious and meaningless conversations that make the film needlessly long. Then again, the conversations do have one important impact-after suffering through them, the action that takes place seems even more intense.
