Death Proof (2007) (part 5 of 5)

There’s some tiresome stuff with Abernathy feeling left out until they let her come along, and at last, we’re on the road. I should note that we don’t see Lee for the rest of the movie. I’ll get to that at the end though, because I do have an idea for something that would improve this film somewhat.

Kim drives the car onto a long stretch of road, and after a powwow with Zoe, she borrows Abernathy’s belt and ties it to one door, fastening Zoe’s belt to the other. They drive off, and Zoe ends up climbing onto the hood of the car while Kim drives like a lunatic. It’s a really impressive stunt, made even more so by the fact that Zoe Bell actually is on the hood.

You know, it’s a nice hood ornament, but it does sort of obscure my view!
