Fred Williamson plays a character who mentions he was in the Vietnam War in 1973. This is ironic considering that Fred's first film appearance was in the movie MASH (1970). While that film was set during the Korean War, it's said it was written for those with loved ones and for those serving in Vietnam as a form of comedic relief. See more »

Critics of "From Dusk 'Till Dawn" often dismiss it as grade Z-slasher tripe, however the film is really two separate but equal genres (hard boiled crime drama and B-horror comedy) scotch taped together. Definitely not everyone's cup o' cinematic joe, this movie has more energy, wit and style than most high-budget Hollywood actioners. Clooney and Tarantino make a classic duo in two powerhouse and differing performances. T-man's script is crammed full of his usual over-the-top dialogue (if only criminals were really this interesting) and a lot of love for the conventions of B flicks from his youth. I give it a 10.
