“We're gonna be doin' one thing and one thing only: killin' Nazis.”

Meet the Basterds: a group of eight Jewish-American soldiers, dropped into Nazi-occupied France to strike terror into the hearts of the Germans. Headed by Lt. Aldo Raine, nicknamed “Aldo the Apache”, the Basterds delight in finding inventive ways to track down and brutally slaughter every Nazi that crosses their path.

On the other frontier, the diabolically clever Col. Hans Landa is scouring the French countryside for Jews in hiding. Living up to his reputation as the “Jew Hunter”, he kills the family Dreyfus, watching as young Shosanna flees, the sole survivor of the massacre.

The stakes get higher when Frederick Zoller, star of the German propaganda film “Nation’s Pride”, pursuades Goebbels to host the premiere at a cinema in Paris. Sensing an opportunity, the Basterds arrive, dressed as Italian cameramen (with an American accent), with an explosive plan to murder the Führer and the leading Nazi officers. Little does anyone know that the cinema owner is, in fact, Shosanna in disguise, who is plotting revenge of her own...

A ridiculously entertaining film with iconic characters. It's not enough to say that Inglourious Basterds is Quentin Tarantino's best movie. It's [...] the film his talent has been promising for more than 15 years. (San Francisco Chronicle)
