Elsewhere in Europe, Lieutenant Aldo Raine organizes a group of Jewish soldiers to engage in targeted acts of retribution. Known to their enemy as "The Basterds," Raine's squad joins German actress and undercover agent Bridget Von Hammersmark on a mission to take down the leaders of The Third Reich.

Movie Critics Reviews:

Chicago Tribune (Geoff Berkshire) -The movie only stays still when it finds an interesting bit of conversation, otherwise operating in perpetual motion, constantly shifting perspectives and introducing important new characters deep into its running time. If the traditional approach would be watching the basterds carry out a mission (à la “Valkyrie,” “Defiance” and other recent WWII tales), Tarantino prefers to imagine how these renegades would inspire or interact with a razor-sharp villain like Landa, a glamorous adventuress like Von Hammersmark or an average person in extraordinary circumstances like Shosanna. “Basterds” is as entertaining as it is audacious, a film that showcases Tarantino in top form and boasts a multitude of characters who could easily carry a movie of their own (special mention should also be made of Daniel Brühl as a Nazi-hero-turned-movie-star and Til Schweiger as a German rebel). And about that ending…well, you’ll just have to see it for yourself.

E! Online (Luke Thompson) -Though the misleading marketing would have you believe it's an action flick about Brad Pitt kicking Kraut keisters from here to eternity, Quentin Tarantino's revisionist take on World War II actually unfolds more as a series of suspense-laden conversations. And he's really, really good at doing them.
