Scene by scene, Jackie Brown is amusing, but after two hours, it seems sluggish, and at that point still has a half-hour to go.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 6, 2004
As an exercise in style, Jackie Brown is a refinement of the innovative elements Tarantino employed in the Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

January 1, 2000
For all its enthusiasm, this film isn't sharp enough to afford all the time it wastes on small talk, long drives, trips to the mall and favorite songs played on car radios.

The flat, self-exposing dud that fate often keeps in store for the initially overpraised.

[Tarantino] wanted to give Grier a role worthy of her, and he has. If only he'd given her a movie worthy of her as well.

The movie takes 150 minutes to tell what should have been a 90-minute story.

February 14, 2001
A leisurely and easygoing diversion that goes down easy enough but is far from compelling.

August 7, 2004
Working from an Elmore Leonard novel, Tarantino has created a gangster fiction that is never larger than life and sometimes smaller.

Pam Grier is at her best recapturing the type of role that made her a bonafide star in '70s blaxploitation movies like Foxy Brown...

Quentin Tarantino had a lot to live up to with this release and while he has not made a movie that has matched his previous successes, Jackie Brown is still a great film.

Overall, Tarantino has made an acceptable film, even if it is over two and a half hours long.

September 24, 2007
Consider it a superb Elmore Leonard adaptation by a filmmaker who knows how to serve someone else's material while making it his own.

January 29, 2013
While Jackie Brown can be too languid, drifting like one of Melanie's highs, its wearied, over-40 lows reveal Tarantino as a director who, once upon a crime, could've mined complexity and depth from the cracks and crevices of American genre movies.
