The cut of Inglourious Basterds that viewers saw at Cannes ran two hours, 27 minutes long and it seems likely that the version audiences will see when the movie is widely released in August will be shorter. Anne Thompson @ Variety is reporting scuttlebutt that Universal Pictures has asked Taratino to cut the running time of the movie down. Nothing was mentioned as to what scenes could fall underneath the editing axe but as Thompson points out, Tarantino's contract says that his movie cannot exceed a maximum of two hours, 48 minutes long, so he's well under that already.- Variety.

Inglourious Basterds has screened at Cannes and the first reviews are now appearing online. Todd McCarthy has a positive review of the film running in Variety in which he says, "Quentin Tarantino's long-gestating war saga invests a long-simmering revenge plot with reworkings of innumerable genre conventions, but only fully finds its tonal footing about halfway through, after which it's off to the races."
Hollywood Reporter's Kirk Honeycutt is less impressed with the film, saying, "The film is by no means terrible -- its running time of two hours and 32 minutes races by -- but those things we think of as being Tarantino-esque, the long stretches of wickedly funny dialogue, the humor in the violence and outsized characters strutting across the screen, are largely missing."
The BBC News' Emma Jones says of the movie, "It still can't touch Pulp Fiction, which won the Palme D'Or in 1994, but the reaction here at Cannes is that Quentin Tarantino has made a glorious, silly, blood-spattered return."
Chris Tilly from IGN UK sums up his thoughts by saying, "The result is an entertaining yet uneven movie that provides comedy, drama and some interesting psychological twists and turns, but never quite delivers on that 'men on a mission' promise, lacking the requisite action and spectacle to truly to make it a classic of the genre."
And Sukhdev Sandhu from The Independent also feels that the movie doesn't quite live up to its promise. "The problem is that there’s not enough roaring or headhunting," he writes.Comment on this Scoop (0)
