Inglourious Basterds is legendary film director Quentin Tarantino’s latest epic. And at two and a half hours long, epic is the right word. This is the trailer, which should get Tarantino fans very excited about what they are about to see.
However, having already seen the movie, I can report that the trailer does not do it justice. It plays up the action and the gratuitous violence while ignoring the plot and dialog which are the elements which really make this film.
In fact, some moviegoers and even Tarantino fans may be a little disappointed to find the violence is seldom seen and more imagined by the Nazis and consequently the viewers of the film.
That’s not to say this is a bad thing. What replaces the death and destruction is lengthy dialog and tension-building scenes which keep you glued to your seat throughout.
Whether you like the trailer or not, go and see Inglourious Basterds anyway. It’s genius.
