The tale is filled with funny, gritty Tarantino lowlife gab and a respectable body count, but what is most striking is the film's gallantry and sweetness.

Quentin Tarantino puts together a fairly intricate and relatively uninvolving money-smuggling plot, but his cast is so good that you probably won't feel cheated.

The film is more Jarmusch than Peckinpah -- its soul is in the minutiae.

Offers an abundance of pleasures, especially in the realm of characterization and atmosphere.

It's like a scuzz-bucket film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick at his most static-mesmeric.

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

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.

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

Turns out that author Elmore Leonard and director Quentin Tarantino are not the odd couple after all.

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

Between Jackson's opining and De Niro's hopeless alibis when he messes up, Jackie is good for a bundle of bloody ho-ho-hos.

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.

[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.

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.

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