An arms dealer, a flight attendant, a bale bondsman, and a couple of cops are all after drugs, guns, love, betrayal, and honesty. This is my least favorite movie from Quentin Tarantino, I mean the movie has some really good writing in it but the movie feels so slow.

Jackie Brown has all of the elements of a Tarantino movie and a little bit more. Jackie Brown starts out with the same calm effect of most Tarantino movies. Casting was perfect in all accounts. I really enjoyed Chris Tucker's cameo as Bomount. It was a short comic relief that always finds its way into to Tarantino movies. The final job was executed perfectly by Jackie Brown and Max, whose romance is believable and fits in nice with the pace of the movie. It is not his best, but definitely worth the watch.

Aside from Pulp Fiction, this may be the best Tarantino film (and it's one of my favorite.) The film juggles a cast of weird and interesting characters and successfully creates a thrilling heist plot, without losing the more emotional and character-related subplots contained. Tarantino's use of overlooked or "washed up" actors is successful again, as Pam Griern and Robert Forster reappear onto the big screen with some of their best acting work.

Some may say this is not as memorable as other Tarantino films, but they would be wrong. As others have said, not his best, but still I would recommend this without a doubt - whether you like the director or not.

Tarantino's worst.

If you ever ask me what my least favorite Tarantino film is, my answer would have to be Jackie Brown. While still an interesting film, I find it to be the least enjoyable, because it doesn't have the same flair that his other features do.

There are of course good things about Jackie Brown (hence the 3/4 rating). I like the music, direction, dialogue and the always enjoyable pop culture references. It has the same things that make Tarantino known to be Tarantino.
But from the start, I felt that it was missing something. A lot, actually.
It's the first Tarantino movie that I can say after watching: that was boring.
They make out the characters to be extremely smart and everyone has a plan in mind around every corner. While the premise is smart and their intentions are menacing, it fee...

"Jackie Brown" by Yojimbo

Ageing flight attendant Pam Grier is caught between the police and ruthless gun runner Samuel L. Jackson and enlists the help of bail bondsman Robert Forster to scam half a million dollars in the process. Jackie Brown was met with a level of disappointment when it was released; yes it had the cool ensemble cast, excellent retro soundtrack and prolific use of the "N" word, but where were the violence, idiosyncratic characters and quirky comic dialogue we were all expecting? But the fact is, Jackie Brown is by far the most mature film Tarantino has made so far. The dialogue is more naturalistic, the characters believable and well written, and the statuesque queen of blaxploitation Pam Grier proves that the years have in no way diminished her charisma and sex appeal. She gives a sensitive, l...
