Jackie Brown

  • The name's Brown.. Jackie Brown.

A complex and at times slow-moving crime thriller. Our heroine, an air hostess who moonlights for a gangster, gets in a little too deeply and has to make a plan to save herself. So she comes up with the perfect crime, which will deal with the gangster and the police at the same time. The film is character-driven rather than plot-driven, and features famous names in minor roles.

Visitor Comments
Bruce Humphrey: A strange and, at times, confusing ''Pulp Fiction'' type of movie (Also created by Quentin Tarantino). As the write-up says: The film is character-driven rather than plot-driven. It is just under 3 hours long! Go and see it if you enjoy this kind of movie.

Shaun Myburg: Anyone who didn't enjoy this film is not a Tarantino fan, simple as that. I loved this film because it showed a different side of Tarantino's ability to direct. While some critics say this film shows how QT has matured, I think it rather shows how he can change his style to make each film different to it's predecessor. What made this film even better was QT's choice not to cameo himself! It really was a great film and deserves more praise that it gets.

Clive Messer: Absolutely a ''must see'' for all love story fans! So get out there and see it for yourselves all you gay romantics!

Karl Glaser: Yet another fantastic Tarantino flick. Less blood than usual but manages to capture each point of view. The man is a God!!!!!!!

Robert Haynes: Yes and ??? was the way I felt when leaving the cinema...What else ? What was the point ? Sure it was fun in places but far too drawn out and far too laborious. Occasional moments of genius were not enough to keep me from looking at my watch a bit too often !!!
