Inglourious Basterds | Ratings & Reviews

"Vintage Tarantino returns to the big screen and he’s brought all his trademark moves with him. His only standard technique conspicuous by its absence is a time-shifting narrative but he compensates with liberal doses of spectacularly sensationalized violence and joyously amoral humour."

Flicks, Andreas HeinemannFlicks

"A violent fairy tale, an increasingly entertaining fantasia in which the history of World War II is wildly reimagined so that the cinema can play the decisive role in destroying the Third Reich."

VarietyVariety

"“This ain’t your daddy’s WW2 flick,” reckons Tarantino. Too right: this exploitation epic is a unique beast that molests history, wrong-foots expectations and royally entertains. The movies’ coolest Basterd is back on his game."

Total FilmTotal Film

"QT lets slip the reservoir dogs of war and delivers his best flick in some time."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"The film is by no means terrible -- its two hours and 32 minutes running time races by -- but those things we think of as being Tarantino-esque, the long stretches of wickedly funny dialogue, the humor in the violence and outsized characters strutting across the screen, are largely missing."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"With a confidence typical of its director, the last line of Inglourious Basterds is, "This might just be my masterpiece." While that may not be true, this is an often dazzling movie that sees QT back on exhilarating form."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"In the first and the last 10 minutes there are glimpses of what Inglourious Basterds had the potential to be: It just makes the two hours in between even more of a disappointment."
