Awful display of gratuitous violence and cruelty .
Ought to be banned .
In Tarantino's top three maybe two.
I could watch this movie every couple of weeks.
This is not so much a review. I can't say much about it except that the disc wouldn't play past the opening titles.
Classic Quentin, or perhaps original Quentin.
Very dissapointed even if it is a very early Tarantino. Great cast, boring plot. Wont see it again.
Gratuitous and bloody, this film is not for the timid or faint-hearted. That said, the acting, directing and the overall picture of the film is excellent and lives up to the Tarantino-esque, anally-retentive standard that I've come to enjoy. Basically this is a film about the routine of hitmen and the dismissive disaffection that westerners think of organised, urban violence. I like the shock appeal of Tarantino's earlier films (this included) and I recommend it highly to those who like a divergence from Hollywood's boring, family-friendly flicks.
Loved this film, one of his greatest! Loved the story and will be quoting it for years!
I must confess I don't quite get why people rave about Trarantino. It always seems like his
movies are a complete triumph of style over substance. If you like gratuitous violence, then I
guess this is a great movie. But to me, it was just boring.
A touch of genius about this movie. Tarantino has got some ability, but it wasn't consistent as it turned out. This is a hard hitting movie that keeps you glued to your lounge chair. A "four" rating is probably correct.
I thought it was brilliant
Tarantino at his best. This is classic cinema.
Great movie. I thought there could have been more development of the relationship between Mr White and Mr Orange but maybe I've just gotten too used to everything being spoon fed to me in Hollywood movies.
If it wasn't Tarantino, it probably wouldn't be worth watching. Part spaghetti western, part gangster film, the dialogue is the highlight.
really great movie. instant classic............
FANTASTIC !!! violent but great story.
Horrible, violent, worst I have ever seen
Interesting movie with flashbacks. There is a lot of violence so not for the squeamish.
and a half. Well acted and produced, and an interesting, novel approach to the story-telling. Just way too violent for me.
Tarantino obviously believes that excess means success. He is
wrong. Never before have so many of the famous F.. words been
squeezed into a movie. And then there is the blood and gore.If "Pulp Fiction" was the father, then this is the bastard son.
All of Quentin Tarantino’s movies I have seen are exceedingly violent. This one is no exception.
This is a well made movie and perhaps may be too extreme for some. I enjoyed it.
Magnificent dialogue. Great to watch a movie where the effects are not the primary entertainment.
Great movie but not for the feint hearted! I was almost physically sick at some of the actual or implied violence.
Violent and a bit slow in parts, but enjoyable nonetheless.
