    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez had their fun with From Dusk Till Dawn, and now they need to stay away from each other. For their own good. Forever. show more

    It's great fun, but certainly not great art. show more

    Plenty of surprises, almost all of them nasty. show more

    Walter Addiego San Francisco Examiner

    Spiritually it's a John Woo-George Romero-Jim Thompson picture, outrageously bloody and weird. show more

    Rodriguez's film is a high-octane fun-house ride with only one speed: sick-making. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This is horror with a wink and a nod to drive-in theatres and sweaty back seats. This is how it's done. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    Imagine two movies...The first is a moody thriller about two brothers who pull off a bank job, take a family hostage, and head for Mexico. The second is a garish horror freak-out. The deranged hook of From Dusk Till Dawn is that it starts out as the first movie and turns, on a dime, into the second. show more

    A deliriously trashy, exuberantly vulgar, lavishly appointed exploitation picture, this weird combo of road-kill movie and martial-arts vampire gorefest is made to order for the stimulation of teenage boys. show more

    Elvis Mitchell The New York Times

    Mr. Rodriguez demonstrates his talents more clearly than ever -- he's visually inventive, quick-witted and a fabulous editor -- while still hampering himself with sophomoric material. show more

    The New Yorker

    The movie's horror-comics second half is cheesy, derivative, and ultimately a little wearying. But it's also unpretentious and insanely cheerful. show more
