While I preferred the back-to-back presentation of "Grindhouse" (complete with the made-up trailers) Robert Rodriguez's highly entertaining homage to B-movies, exploitation films, horror-zombie movies and 'grindhouse" can stand on its own. Arguably more fun than Tarantino's "Death Proof".

The film that gave "Machete" the opening to become a full-feature film! 4 Out of 5 Stars

LOL! I love this film as well. I do also consider "Death Proof" as Tarantino's weakest film ever.

It's "Night of the Living Dead" meets "Showgirls" meets "Smokey and the Bandit"...!    When toxic biochemicals are released into the Earth's atmosphere, transforming innocent bystanders into flesh-guzzling zombies, mankind's only hope lies with former go-go dancer Cherry (Rose McGowan), who wears a machine-gun in place of an amputated leg...one of her many "useless talents"...    That's the bizarre plot of PLANET TERROR, writer/director Robert Rodriguez's …

Gore, girls, guns, zombifying gases and guts-- I guess that's all it takes to make a moderately entertaining and occasionally visually stunning flick. Of course, it won't do much for your mind -- unlike some grindhouse flicks that play with intriguing subtexts underneath all of the shock-inducing and exploitation schlock -- Robert Rodriguez just wants to ramp up the insanity step by step, piling up absurd but effective and increasingly over the top gory elements until, after the climax, it all ends …

About this movie

Wiki

Director Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) is back with a rip-roaring, zombie-infested rollercoaster of a movie that "sure as hell keeps you hanging on for the ride" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Bruce Willis, and an all-star cast fight for their lives in the ultimate showdown between an army of flesh-eating mutants and a motley group of rag-tag survivors. Featuring one of the most memorable screen heroines ever and the now-legendary mock Machete trailer, "Planet Terror is as total blast - funny, gory and over the top" (Christy Lemire, Associated Press).
