Death Proof (2007)
An action film by Quentin Tarantino, starring Kurt Russell.
"Stuntman Mike" has a penchant for vehicular manslaughter and a stunt car that is reinforced to keep him alive in crashes. He targets attractive young women.
Quentin Tarantino makes good movies. It's a fact and this is no exception. The characters are developed very well and the style is perfect. There are references to other films in the dialogue of some of the women in the film and I've already reviewed Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry, but I haven't reviewed Vanishing Point. I will. Jungle Julia performs some perfect windmills with her hair in the bar that would make any metal band proud. The really cool part is when they beat the piss out of these expensive cars. It's not quite a Carrie smash, but any destruction of automobiles is good. I'm rating this awesome because it has style to spare.
