The production quality was very good, and the script was well done. But what was the intent of the movie? At the beginning, one has Col. Hans Landa (Christopher Waltz) as the Jew hunter, and his portrayal was perhaps the best of the movie. He was extremely good at what he did, which of course was horrific. He knew there were probably Jews being hidden in the farm house, and the only person who was able to crawl out and escape plays an important part later in the film. Brad Pitt, who plays Aldo Raine (Apache) leads a group of Jewish-Americans who are after Nazi scalps, and they are very good at what they do. His leadership in doing what he did could have made for a very interesting movie, although very gory, and perhaps in the Peckinpah mode. Instead, the movie then focuses more on a small group of the Americans who infiltrate to try and kill a large group of Nazis at a movie theater. This slows the action down considerably, and they again come across Col. Landa. There are some over the top performances, for comic relief, I suspect. This movie could have been much better if they knew what they wanted to present for the movie. It left me disappointed, as it is a very long movie.
