Jackie Brown Reviews

    This movie is utterly slow and boring. Not even the action is entertaining and relies on a thin plot line.

    Great work from all involved especially Forester and Grier. It is a great, and often funny thriller, added points for being tied to Out of Sight.

    Tarantino's weakest efforts are the forgettables: Grindhouse - Death Proof, This, From Dusk Till Dawn, Four Rooms, Crimson Tide, True Romance, Sin City, and Natural Born Killers. That being said, they're all extremely fun and worth watching! There's a really good chunk around 2/3rds in where people start dying around the mall, but the rest in pretty boring for a mainline writing/directing effort. (Fun Fact! If you like this one, watch "Out Of Sight" by Steven Soderburgh who did the Oceans films, Contagion, Side Effects, Logan Lucky, Magic Mike, Haywire, High Flying Bird, Unsane, etc. because it's connected to this one!) 8/10.

    I seldom find a 5-star. This is it. A mystery thriller that doesn't cut corners with unbelievable twists that don't make sense, while maintaining a tight, yet complex story throughout. An excellent cast, well directed. A long movie, that never loses it's touch, rich with character development.

    Overlooked after the Pulp Fiction whirlwind, Jackie Brown stands out as a QT film that doesn't weaken with repeated viewings. Quite the opposite. Without the kitsch of his other works, QT allows the actors to fully develop their characters and pulls the viewer into Jackie's plan. Brilliant!

    Everyone in this movie gives a good performances. If you know Tarantino movies then you know his style. Jackie Brown is the only movie I feel that differs from the rest of the Tarantino movies. As in it is the most normal out of his movies. The movie is little slow going but it builds up the suspense is great way. A must watch for any Tarantino fan.

    As far as Tarentino goes it's slow-paced but still entertaining. The acting is excellent and while the story somewhat frustrating proves to be a fun finish to another fun character arc.

    Jackie Brown is one of the best underrated movies from Quentin Tarantino. I love the performances of Samuel L Jackson, Robert De Niro, Robert Forster and Pam Grier. I also enjoyed the soundtrack, the story, the violence, and the ending. Despite not being a big movie than other Tarantino movies, I still enjoy this movie. Overall, Jackie Brown brought herself into new audiences like myself. After all, Blaxploitation is American as apple pie.

    Inspired by Blaxploitation films of the 1970's. The plot to Jackie Brown (1997) is about a middle-aged woman who finds herself in the middle of a huge conflict that will either make her a profit or cost her life. This was Tarantino's follow up film to his magnus opus Pulp Fiction (1994). Expectations were high. So when he put out this smaller & intimate film. A lot of critics rated it negatively. It has since been a movie in his filmography that has gain more appreciation over time for having a wonderful Soulful soundtrack & a film focused on characters. Not recommended for someone with a short attention span, which might be hard nowadays with our reliance on the digital world. If you really pay attention to this film you will realize that it's a story about an interracial couple dealing with the uneasiness of aging while navigating through a dangerous smuggling operation. It's a great watch and a stand out in Quentin Tarantino's filmography.
