Summary: An arms dealer, a flight attendant, a bale bondsman, and a couple of cops are all after drugs, guns, love, betrayal, and honesty. This is my least favorite movie from Quentin Tarantino, I mean the movie has some really good writing in it but the movie feels so slow.
Excerpt: If you ever ask me what my least favorite Tarantino film is, my answer would have to be Jackie Brown. While still an interesting film, I find it to be the least enjoyable, because it doesn't have the same flair that his other features do. There are of course good things about Jackie Brown (hence the 3/4 rating). I like the music, direction, dialogue and the always enjoyable pop culture references. It has the same things that make Tarantino known to be Tarantino.
Summary: This quirky film had a solid cast with some great acting, but that was the best thing going for it as storyline wise I was a little lost and even bored at times. I quite like Tarantino's films but this isn't one of them, and even though I can appreciate where he was going with this one and I'm sure others liked it, I simply didn't as it's just not my type of movie I can sit back and enjoy. Props to Pam Grier who played a great female lead though.
Summary: A well-written, fun film to watch. Even though though it doesn't provide the strong gleeful violence Tarantino provides, fans should be pleased with the spectaculary performances and the overall outline of this film.
Summary: Jackie Brown is a solid effort from Tarantino. The dialogue has the usual flair and is occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. The plot is fairly interesting and the performances are good. That said, there's something missing in Jackie Brown that restrains it from achieving the same excellence as Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. I can't put my finger on what it is exactly but I do know that it isn't quite in the same league.
Summary: Jackie Brown has all of the elements of a Tarantino movie and a little bit more. Jackie Brown starts out with the same calm effect of most Tarantino movies. Casting was perfect in all accounts. I really enjoyed Chris Tucker's cameo as Bomount. It was a short comic relief that always finds its way into to Tarantino movies. The final job was executed perfectly by Jackie Brown and Max, whose romance is believable and fits in nice with the pace of the movie.
Excerpt: Sterke film, duurt betrekkelijk lang maar dat merk je eigenlijk niet. Er zit een goed verhaal in met een mooie twist. Je moet alleen wel je aandacht er echt bij houden. Maar gelukkig kan je het via Videoland nog eens terugspoelen.
Excerpt: Goed in elkaar gezet en ook wel realistisch te bedenken op de manier hoe alles Pam Grier goed voor de wind gaat... Tot dat het misloopt. Verrassend is het ook dat ze Bridget Fonda, Samuel Jackson, Michael Keaton, Robert Forster en Robert de Niro samen hebben gestrikt voor deze film. Duurt ook best lang, maar wel bekijken waard.
