    To me, It's incredibly rare for a movie to not only to suck you in but to keep you interested and entertained through out and this movie really did it for me. I loved it.

    This movie is directed by Robert Rodriquez and has a screenplay by Quentin Tarantino who also has a role in the film. This is actually one of the first movies by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino that I watched and from then on I pretty much became a fan of them both. So, when it came out on Blu-ray a while ago I had to get it for the collection of course.

    When I and my dear wife first watched this movie we did not really know what it was all about. We thought it was just another robbery/criminal story and the first half of the movie it is indeed

    Movies in general exist for one of two reasons, and sometimes both. These are: to entertain and to edify. Genre aside, some films are easy to categorize in this respect, while others walk a tighter line. From Dusk To Dawn should be clearly seen in the former, regarding both the above points.

If your definition of entertainment in cinema does not include raw aspects of any kind (or Tarantino 'touches', if you like) then steer well clear of this film; the game is over before it even began. If however you like the coarse elements and consider they enhance the cinematic experience, or are just open-minded and not perturbed by them, then I highly recommend this film. FDTD is unlike any movie I have seen and I consider it near a masterpiece of filmmaking. The acting is first-rate, the overall production is flawless and the writing is...well, that can be expounded upon simply by looking at who's responsible. In the vein of The Crying Game, not much can be disclosed without spoiling the experience. All that needs to be said is that it is original, comical, farcical, and very entertaining, for which reason, solely, it was made. Expand

    I think this movie is really good. It is by far the best vampire movie I've ever seen. I really like how the vampires look. Not terrible obvious mask and not so good you'll get nightmares but like directly in the middle. Also the story is funny and suspenseful. I like this movie but it's not the GREATEST. so that's why I gave it a 7.

    George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino shine in this great vampire flick. Starts as a movie about two criminals on the run. The thing about this movie is it the first and second halves could be their own films. The first half is a interesting tale of two brothers in crime. About midway it turns into a highly entertaining vampire movie. Great quotable dialogue, memorable scenes, some decentGeorge Clooney and Quentin Tarantino shine in this great vampire flick.

    This is horror with a wink and a nod to drive-in theatres and sweaty back seats. This is how it's done.

    Robert Rodriguez's second effort is a funny, craftily written piece of low-grade horror crapola.

    It's great fun, but certainly not great art.
