Excellent Quentin Tarantino movie
good movie ....Stands the test of time ,sound track is good ,the plot needs some following ....Recommended
Liked this movie much better this time than when I first saw it when it was released...probably because I got a bit confused during the first watching! Classic Quentin Tarantino. Recommended for its soundtrack alone.
Not a very good film,tedious.I dont know why De Niro was in this film
must be his worst ever.Silly part,badly played.
A disappointing Tarantino flick. It just doesn't have the memorability of his other films and it just makes you want to watch "Pulp Fiction" instead. This is a good movie, but by the standards of one of the best filmmakers alive it is a big letdown (at least for me).
This film seems to get better every time I see it - I think it's actually my favourite Tarantino film.
Boring long and boring. Did i mention it was boring? Worst Tarantino movie by a long way. Boring!
really wanted to get into this movie- i love quentin- but it lost me...maybe i was too tired...
Jackie is a smart 44 year-old but in a poorly-paid job as an airline flight attendant on a shuttle service between Mexico and LA. She supplements her income by bringing in stashes of $50,000 from Mexico for a gun-dealer, Odel. But she finally gets picked up by a couple of federal police agents, who have been given a tip-off. They know exactly how much cash she is carrying without even counting it. But it's Odell they're after, and they offer her a deal if she'll inform on him. She's not talking, so they take her into custody. Odell raises the $10,000 bail through Max, a bail bondsman, and she's soon released. Odell still has half a million dollars in Mexico, and Jackie devises an intricate plan to get her hands on it by convincing the feds that she's working for them, and Odell that she's only interested in the commission. Quentin Tarantino has adapted an Elmore Leonard novel and uses Pam Grier, a veteran of tough-girl movies of the 70's, as his lead. Samuel L Jackson is the fast-talking gun-salesman, Odell, and Robert De Nero, Louis, his accomplice just out of prison. For light relief, Bridget Fonda has an interesting part as Odell's loose girlfriend. An evenly paced, structured narrative, don't expect it to have the impact of a 'Reservoir Dogs' or 'Pulp Fiction'.
Tarentino at his best !
Simply brilliant movie. Great performances and a very good story line.
I admit that the Delphonics (did'nt I blow your mind) was a bit over-done but I did not mind as I do love the song !
A little on the "telemovie" side but worth watching.
Disappointing, Not what I expected from Quentin, It had all the makings but just seemed to fall apart from about three quarters to the end.
An entertaining & mature thriller.
Is it possible for Tarantino to make a B grade movie? I think this movie had that feel. However, the acting was great, and tension was sustained throughout. The violence was done with relative subtlety, and I was surprised at the lack of blood. The soundtrack seemed appropriate.
Lots of language (F*s and N*s) in a nicely told story of double-crossings. Good soul sountrack as well.
