Brad Pitt wants scalps! Nazi scalps! And Eli Roth is going to get them for him! Perhaps more than any other active director, Quentin Tarantino has made a career out of being something of a cinematic archaeologist, dipping into the film styles of the 1970s as a source of inspiration for his own work. And after doing the crime caper, the blaxploitation picture, the car-chase film and kung fu, it seems that the last major ’70s genres left untouched are science fiction and the war adventure. With INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, Tarantino takes the war route. Loosely based on Enzo Castellari's film of loosely the same title—Tarantino has intentionally misspelled his version—INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS stars Brad Pitt as the leader of a squad of misfit soldiers, soldiers specially chosen for their disregard for rules and protocol, soldiers chosen for their skills in violence, soldiers chosen to spread fear and panic throughout the Third Reich by carrying out a campaign of pain and torture and killing behind enemy lines. Their task is to infiltrate and wreak maximum havoc.
Once again Tarantino shows a gift for unusual casting. Yes, Brad Pitt is a high-profile leading man doing his high-profile leading-man thing, but fellow director Eli Roth in a key acting role? Comedian Mike Myers as a World War II general? Maggie Cheung in what is essentially a well-budgeted exploitation film? Cloris Leachman fills the ‘faded icon' quotient while German stars Til Schweiger and Daniel Bruhl give some international flavour. Even inspirational director Enzo Castellari himself has a part. Ultraviolence, snappy dialogue, and a cast of surprising faces—Tarantino is back, baby, and back in a big way.
