      Jules N Beaucoup trop stylé la jambe mitraillette Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Audience Member I watch this movie at least once per year. The kind of movie you watch at midnight with great snacks. It’s so over the top, violent, trashy, witty, funny guilty pleasure type of movie. There is a rumor that there could be a sequel after all these years and I’m all for it!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Johnathon W Fun tribute to the grind house era of movies thanks to a cast and crew that know the exact kind of movie they are making. The actors are all excellent and having a ball in their balls, especially Freddy Rodriguez as Rey, who makes a credible turn as an action star, while Rose McQowan's Cherry morph's from a damsel in distress to pure badass. Behind the camera, director Robert Rodriguez crafts a fun action/horror film with cheesy effects, hilarious dialogue and over the top action. This a true tribute to grind house movies, with the scratchy film and even missing reel. Just a fun watch from beginning to end that is not just as good as those grind house movies but as good as you remember them. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review KB B I liked it a little better than Death proof but I'd never bother watching it again. Watch if there's nothing else on. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review nick s I hope Willis got a good payday. This is a real b grade horror movie and I don't quite get what it was trying to achieve. I'm sure they had fun making it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Jerod S Planet Terror is a genre I don't get...but if you're into guns for legs and zombie boils...

      Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) Won't make any friends outside of B-movie aficionados, and even they might tire of laughing at all the cheapo gore being thrown around. Rated: 2/5 Nov 9, 2007 Full Review Nigel Andrews Financial Times Dire and dunderheaded. Nov 9, 2007 Full Review Andrew Pulver Guardian McGowan is a suitably slinky presence as the lead avenger with a machine gun for a leg; blood and pus regularly fill the screen as Rodriguez lets rip with gleeful abandon. Rated: 3/5 Nov 9, 2007 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine Planet Terror is pure adrenaline... simple entertainment for fans of these kinds of films that only promised two things: sex and blood. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Kristy Strouse Wonderfully Weird and Horrifying It's the ideal amalgamation of horror, comedy, and outright randomness that makes Planet Terror iconic. Mar 10, 2021 Full Review Chris Bumbray IONCINEMA.com Rodriguez just wants viewers to have a good time, and it comes across in the film -- which is an extremely affectionate homage to seventies exploitation films. Rated: 4/5 Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
