In the OPENING credits during the prologue driving sequence, after "Kurt Russell in" there is a quick two-or-three frame color animation of the title "Quentin Tarentino's Thunder Bolt" which cuts immediately to a simple grainy white-on-black title screen that says "Death Proof". See more »
I sat down to watch this as a confirmed Tarantino fan and came away convinced that this was a vanity project to pay homage to a genre that was always pretty poor in cinematic terms anyway. "Vanishing Point", for example, is rubbish, always was, always will be, and is of no significance in movie history. Its musical equivalent would be The Beatles re-forming and making an album of Herman Hermit's Greatest Hits, i.e. horrible and pointless. There is very little plot, the dialogue is laughably bad and moreover this film is terribly slow. Tarantino seems to have lost all sense of pace, or how to retain the viewers interest. Is this the man that made "Pulp Fiction"? In the extras section of the DVD disc, Tarantino cites the Australian "Mad Max" movies as an influence. This film doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those films, in terms of story, plot or sheer excitement. And who the hell are "Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, "Mitch" and Tich"? There was a band called "Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich" and in musical relevance or coolness terms come somewhere between Cliff Richard and The Rubettes. Don't waste your time on this film. It's dreadful and a complete waste of all the undoubted talents involved.
