  WILL WATCH IT AGAIN... AND AGAIN

| | See all HONESTBAZ's reviews (299)

It may be argued the plot isn't fantastic,but when a film is this much fun,i hardly think that matters.
I suspected my first time of watching it and really enjoying it may've been me being easily pleased,but i've just watched it again and loved it.
I haven't bothered with the synopsis,as i'm sure you already know what it's about (zombies,disease,warts,gore,a go-go dancer with a gun for a leg),i just felt the need to join the other reviewers praising this.
Yes,it's completely and utterly ridiculous,but even with that being a fact,i found the idea of a go-go dancer with an amputated leg being replaced by a table leg,a gun,a bigger gun and so on very very amusing,also the nurse with the floppy hands (after being injected) is a sight that will never leave my mind,stupid but very funny.
There's also some very funny lines to go with the gore,and what gore!
The opening fake trailer may get you thinking what's all this about,but once the actaul film kicks in,it's a hoot.
It may not be for everyone,but what is? Seriously,give it a go,there's a reason so many people like this film.

I saw it thought it wasn't too good but now that I think of it I don't why but I think it was savini's appearnce and the chick with the gun 4 a leg makes me want a copy god Rodriguez is so over the top but I don't care if he over the top with his movies

  Shock horror or horrible shock?

Bad, bad bad....i had to watch to the end even though it was awful...cliched and tires to be "instsnt cult classic" even though it just deserves to go straight to bargain bucket.
Avoid at all costs otherwise like me...that will be 105 minutes of your life you can never claim back !!!

This movie is sooooooooo bad, the moment I saw the front cover (the bird with a gun leg) I wasnt holding much hope for it. Sure enough, it sucks. Maybe its some creative, artsie film style thing Rodriguez thought up but it tried too hard in being imaginative and went just bizarre.

  Excellent!!

Great movie if you love the work of Tarrintino.Having never heard of this movie before I was supprisingly rivited throughout, lots of great action ,gags and downright nonsense!! This is a silly film, but the film knows as much, and revels in it but what could have pushed it too far into parody is the cast, fortunately they all get the tone just right.

  Nostalgic ride - fun but frustrating at times

| | See all MK1989's reviews (24)

Whether deliberate B-movie material or not, playing with nostalgia and referencing to the past is a dangerous game to play. While quirky nods to the predecessors of exploitation cinema is welcome, there's a limit to what is acceptable, and Planet Terror noticeably crosses over the line rendering what essentially is an overall joy ride, into frequency of frustration. While Planet Terror isn't aiming to score high in aspects of originality and refinement, the blatant surrender to obsessive emulation of past works is a slight chore to watch.

Nevertheless, it is a romping ride and certainly has a carefree personality that should be admired. Visually it is typically stylistic as expected of such titles, and the story line is well tailored to allow maximum body count and carry the momentum at an acceptable pace.

It's over the top blood, guts, gore, guns, explosions and what not, and while devious fun as it may appear, its cliched and clunky at best, and it certainly isn't the best offered in the niched genre. Mildly enjoyable, and instantly forgettable.

  slasher movie pur sang

| | See all albertIIjr's reviews (459)

rodriguez delivers: this is grindhouse! and as a bonus the story is a rather good one. bloodshed is one of the main characters in this movie. and indeed: don't let it be misunderstood: deny death proof, the twin movie from quentin tarantino (his worst movie so far!), this part is the best, the most convincing, far out more beautiful cinematographically spoken, and with good acting!
for a twodisc edition, this is a real bargain!
