Wow that was quite good! Simple but very well executed.
Some raw violence at a point which was tough to watch but overall a good movie with a great cast.

There may not be any independent film more important than Reservoir Dogs. It's a small little film that shows so much talent from Quentin Tarantino in his feature-film directing debut. Despite it's potentially loud and chaotic premise, following a botched robbery and the tense aftermath between the team of robbers, told in a non-linear manner no less, Tarantino tells this story with a quiet sense of nuance. It's essentially all dialogue, as the group of robbers try to find out how their robbery went wrong and figure out who a potential police informant, which really highlights Tarantino's strong writing that's chock-full of fast conversations and profanity. It's mostly set in one location, which keeps things constrained but never boring. Tarantino gets great performances from his cast, ranging from Steve Buscemi and Harvey Keitel to Tim Roth and Michael Madsen all filling their roles perfectly. It's a hard film to truly describe in any way other than brilliant, setting the stage for one of the most promising voices in filmmaking.

Tarantino's First Masterpiece.

By now I've come to expect what's in store for Tarantino films, but his directorial debut with Reservoir Dogs proves that a decent script that flows rather nicely can overcome the shear brutality inside this caper-gone-wrong story.

Impressive debut of Tarantino as a director where we see his style and trademark dialogue.

The fast talking gangsters in Tarantino's first flick help make it his best.

In his directorial debut, Quentin Tarantino scores big. "You ever listen to K-Billy's Super Sounds of the 70s? This is my personal favorite."

This movie lacks substance, but is still fun to watch.

Tarantino's ability to let dialogue carry a film is unprecedented and delivers on great monologues and complicated characters.

Despite the brilliant cast, Tarantino's debut feels boring and empty for most of its 100 minutes.

one of the best film debuts.

I've been a bit picky with Tarantino's style in the past, but this one was pretty damn awesome. It combined his signature blend of cool, intense dialogue with a viciousness that I hadn't really seen before, not even in something as violent as Kill Bill. I would have loved to see a little more of Mr. White, as he seemed the most dynamic after Mr. Orange, but my God I was so impressed by this movie. It was smart, violent, evenly paced, and an all-around great viewing experience.

Not just the movie doesn't solve anything, whole series of events doesn't solve anything too. It's just well directed.

The quintessential definition of a Tarantino classic. Reservoir Dogs is a thrilling and defining directorial debut for Tarantino. With the focus on four main characters Mr. Blonde, Mr. Pink, Mr. White & Mr. Orange you can't help but be gripped by a feeling of intrigue. The use of such brutal violence adds to such a wonderful piece of film with iconic movie moments. Ultimately it is based on a robbery gone wrong but rather than focusing on the robbery itself the movie focuses on the aftermath and the backstories of each character. As the movie unravels and more truths are revealed emotions run high thereby producing some fantastic showdowns and acting performances. You can try to hate this film but by doing so you will only love it more.

This film is so smart. The dialogue used between characters is simply brilliant and everything in the movie seems to be purposeful and precise. The perfect beginning to Tarantino's career and he established his masterful storytelling right off the bat.
