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

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.

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.
