Quentin Tarantino does the same thing to World War II Europe that he did to Los Angeles, Japan, and the Mexican borderlands — he bends it to suit his purposes. Most of those purposes are worth watching, although the multi-layered story of a murderous German SS colonel (hammy, memorable Christolph Waltz), a scalp-hunting US Army lieutenant (Brad Pitt), a vengeance-seeking Jewish Frenchwoman (Mélanie Laurent), a squad of brutal Jewish-American GIs, and various long-winded Nazi galoots may contain a few too many layers. At an overstuffed two-and-a-half hours, Tarantino’s bloody, gaudy scenario veers in and out of comprehensibility. Still, we have to grudgingly admire a Hollywood filmmaker who’s willing to make his audience sit through long subtitled dialogue scenes when they’d probably rather watch Pitt scalp Nazi POWs. They should have sent the entire “British commando” subplot to a concentration camp. Also with Eli Roth, Daniel Brühl, Jacky Ido, and August Diehl. A white elephant supreme (153 min.).
