    it's a clever gimmick to redo the exploitation horror and chick films of the 70s, but it doesn't work as a modern day movie. Rodriguez's 1/2 was the better half. A zombie story, where those infected with a plague that sports postules all over your face, try to infect everyone else. it's grotesque, lots and lots of blood bags bursting all over the place, red flying everywhere for the full hour.Tarrantino's piece sucked in my opinion. And it didn't have to. It was a pretty cool idea, this Stuntman turned psychotic killer played by Kurt Russell. The set up was good right up until the killing spree starts to happen then the film changes course and we are stuck like glue to two awful expositional scenes where 4 girlfriends talk and talk and talk and it is so tedious...i was falling asleep. these two scenes take up 20 minutes of the movie and you learn very little except that tarrantino wants you to know that the one girl has a gun down her sock, and that the other girl is a stuntwoman, hint: they will exploit her stunt talents in a later's just awful writing, boring...the film lost me. even though the final chase is pretty cool. it took way too long to get there. tracy toms and rosario dawson i usually like both of them but they were irritating and annoying under tarrantino's lame direction. good idea, bad execution is what i have to say about tarrantino's 1/2.
