The movie is set in World War II and focuses on a group of Jewish-American soldiers that are known as “The Basterds”. This group of men are chosen to brutally kill Nazis in order to spread fear through the Third Reich.
The film was written by Quentin Tarantino and it is also being directed by him. Brad Pitt will star as what looks like the leader of “The Basterds” named Lt. Aldo Raine.
After watching the trailer many will argue that this doesn’t feel like a Tarantino film and I disagree, this film doesn’t feel like his Kill Bill movies but it definitely feels like his older stuff and I’m looking forward to see how he’s going to execute this. Also, the trailer makes the movie look good, expect for the last part which seems a little too quirky.
The thing that I think can hurt this film is how it’s being rushed out. The film moved from filming to post rather quickly and it’s already slated for an Aug. 21, 2009, release date. Hopefully they are making sure this film gets enough care during post and they make it the best that it can be.
