Former Hollywood stuntman, Mike (Kurt Russell), sports a customised 'death proof' ride to lure lovely young ladies to a terrifying end. The ruggedly handsome psychopath gets his comeuppance, however, in the second act of Tarantino's kinetic female revenge flick when the ladies go toe-to-toe with him in a 1970 Dodge Challenger.
Tarantino promoted Kill Bill stuntwoman Zoe Bell (who broke into the industry as Xena stunt double for Lucy Lawless) to first tier on-camera duties in a take-no-prisoners cast alongside Rose McGowan, Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Ferlito.
"Tarantino [builds] to a bravura car chase that gives Tracie Thoms and Zoe Bell the most badass fun a woman could ever have. A berserk and memorable thrill ride. No seatbelt, no airbag, no nuthin' - just Tarantino driving wildly under the influence" - Empire
