Jacob’s review published on Letterboxd:
From Dusk to Dawn offered lots of fun and a good twist for this B-movie spectacle. As my second viewing, I already knew what was coming. Knowing that, it added more to the suspense as I anticipated for the shocking reveal halfway through. Director Robert Rodriguez brought a goofy yet very well-made homage to old dramas and horrors.
This is one of the best films that I had seen that executed the cross-genre so well. It had that witty Quentin Tarantino writing as he was the screenwriter. He also stars in the film along side George Clooney. They were both great as unlikable criminals. Tarantino’s acting wasn’t the best but he still tried. Clooney was fantastic and made the film memorable.
The practical effects and gore were great for a small-budget film. The last half definitely had the memorable scenes as it became so ridiculous yet very entertaining. The snake dance scene was my all-time favorite with no explanation. The first part of the film was actually very intriguing and suspenseful as it could of been totally boring. The film was also very funny. Honestly, I don’t have anything bad to say as it knows actually what it want to be and it succeeded. Best B film.
