Jackie Brown Reviews

Jeffrey Overstreet
Looking Closer

As an exercise in style, Jackie Brown is a refinement of the innovative elements Tarantino employed in the Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

Working from an Elmore Leonard novel, Tarantino has created a gangster fiction that is never larger than life and sometimes smaller.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

Give (Jackson) the best-actor Oscar for his picture-perfect performance as a gun-running criminal whose vocabulary is as vulgar as his occupation.

[A] flawed but stylish and moderately entertaining crime thriller.

Quentin actually made a REAL movie, with believable characters and performances, rather than just repositories for clever dialog.

Screen It!

Tarantino's attention to smart, witty dialogue, and the stepped up last half of the film make the feature worthwhile.

Cincinnati Enquirer

On the surface, Jackie Brown -- based on Elmore Lenoard's novel Rum Punch -- is a caper movie, full of guns, drugs, purple profanity and bloody murder. But scratch the surface and you find a love letter.

A great, quirky little film that gets better every time you watch it.

A potboiler, and a fairly good one

Achieves the soulful edge lacking from Tarantino's previous efforts. Forster and Grier's performances deserve to join the short-list of all-time greats.

Jackie Brown isn't the movie-length adrenaline rush Pulp Fiction was, but it deepens and broadens Tarantino's storytelling.

Cinema em Cena

Um filme divertido que se ressente do choque entre os personagens criados por Elmore Leonard e os concebidos por Tarantino.

Beyond the grasp of most directors, this is tour de force stuff -- definitely meriting the price of admission and almost worth the three-year wait.

Grier logs her best performance since Fort Apache the Bronx as a flight attendant who gets nabbed transporting illegal amounts of cash into the country.

While this is not his best work to date, it is still a solid piece of moviemaking that shows he has more range as a writer and director than many wanted to give him credit for.

A leisurely and easygoing diversion that goes down easy enough but is far from compelling.

This is the movie that proves Tarantino is the real thing, and not just a two-film wonder boy.

Both Jackie and Grier manage to stay tough and independent throughout, which seems a credit to both the actress and her director.
