About the Movie
A one-eyed vigilante with a dark past has vowed to change his ways, trading his machine gun for a yoga mat. But when he encounters a beautiful young mother in deep trouble with a cannibalistic drug lord and his evil goons, he soon realizes that justice must be served. Teamed up with his smooth-talking Native American hipster sidekick, our hero rides into the badass brawl of the century.
Very 'Grindhouse' of a good time
My first impression was from the trailer, which made me think that I was sitting at a 1970's drive-in theater. Fantastic, right?! Pass the popcorn.
Just watching the trailer, the film gives a very 'Pulp Fiction'-ish vibe, but the full-on frontal flick is more Grindhouse than the trailer can be allowed to show.
So watching the whole thing from start to finish, I have to say that this flick has it all: humor, action, guts and glory. There's even romance and the cutest baby to ever grace a movie screen! But don't let the cute baby fool you, because this is not for the little ones nor the squeamish. For any parents with little tykes in the room, it earned an "R" rating, but I must confess that it seems that this flick is actually bordering an NC-17, based on the content. Nothing is held back, and the story shows the grittier side of living in the desert where anything can happen - and does happen to the Nth degree!
This is one that delivers well enough to satisfy the hardcore flick fans and balances the bloody brawls with a story that shines through and makes a social statement in its own twisted way. The cherry on top is the awesome title sequence that rivals the amount of work usually only put into opening titles for James Bond films. It's quite entertaining and artistic all on its own.
Dug this hard
I was reminded many times throughout Dust Up how fun it is to watch movies and actually let yourself get carried away for a couple hours. Something about how the story to gore ratio hit on a balance that helped immerse me in the world of the movie. It had me going the whole time, great dialogue and unique visual style as well. If you like the type of movie where freaky stuff goes down in the desert, then this might be good for you. Now that I think about it, there should be a freaky stuff going down in the desert film festival…..
