Eight years after the Joker's reign of anarchy, Batman, with the help of the enigmatic Catwoman, is forced from his exile to save Gotham City, now on the edge of total annihilation, from the brutal guerrilla terrorist Bane.
In German-occupied France, young Jewish refugee Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the slaughter of her family by Colonel Hans Landa. Narrowly escaping with her life, she plots her revenge several years later when German war hero Fredrick Zoller takes a rapid interest in her and arranges an illustrious movie premiere at the theater she now runs. With the promise of every major Nazi officer in attendance, the event catches the attention of the "Basterds", a group of Jewish-American guerrilla soldiers led by the ruthless Lt. Aldo Raine. As the relentless executioners advance and the conspiring young girl's plans are set in motion, their paths will cross for a fateful evening that will shake the very annals of history.Written by

Eli Roth put on thirty-five pounds of muscle to play Sergeant Donny Donowitz "The Bear Jew". Roth also learned to cut hair for the role from producer Pilar Savone's father Umberto at his salon in Beverly Hills, California. See more »
At the premiere, Pvt. Zoller wears his Knight's Cross around his neck but when in uniform in all other scenes, he is without it. The Knight's Cross was one of the highest orders the Third Reich bestowed upon soldiers and when in any uniform Zoller would have worn it around the neck. See more »
The film uses the 1963-1990 Universal Pictures logo. See more »
In Russia, two versions of the movie exist. One for the general showings, which has all dialogs dubbed into Russian except for French and Italian; and another, so-called "director's cut" where only the English passages are dubbed into Russian and the rest is subtitled. See more »
This movie was garbage. A pretentious, self-indulgent mess. It consisted of interminable dialogue and a paper-thin plot stretching out over nearly three hours. Booooooooring! I realize that this movie was not supposed to be a flat-out action film, but, come on people, the ad campaign for this film was incredibly misleading. And another thing: why do the opening credits have to be modeled after a film from the 60s or 70s? For what possible reason? In Jackie Brown and Death Proof it made sense, as each was an homage to styles past. But why do it for this one? Yes, Quentin, we know what a big fan of these eras you are. We get it. Move on. And why the cartoon title over Hugo what's-his-name? Tarantino didn't do much else like this in the film. It just threw it off balance for me. What'd he make this stuff up as he went along? And is it true that Tarantino rushed production to get the movie done in time to compete at Cannes? If so, that is the dumbest and most narcissistic thing I've ever heard. I'm tired of listening to this guy talk about how much god-given talent he has. Make an entertaining movie, for pete's sake! Reign yourself in! The movies you make shouldn't just be for you and Eli Roth and Robert Rodriguez to watch and pat each other on the backs after. It's getting old, people. Does ANYBODY agree with me, or does everyone still think this guy is God because he had Travolta and Jackson talking about cheeseburgers before killing somebody?
