The movie tries really hard to pay tribute to old (Grindhouse) movies and is constantly aware that the audience is in on the joke. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately all the winks and tributes do not work as well as I think the filmmakers intended them to be in the first place.
The short running time will be a relief to almost everybody, because the movie does feel longer (although I couldn't tell you why). The story has it's (twist) moments and it does have a few nice surprises along the way, that make this a not so bad experience. As another reviewer said, depending on your taste you might even like this better than the rating it got here. But for the rest: Rent it first, see if you like it and then you can still buy it, if you really want to
