Not Tarantino's best film, but a brilliant directorial debut from a director who's among the best of all time. Perfectly acted, well written, and stylish, RD is a film that cannot be missed. A lot of this film reminded me a lot of 12 Angry Men because much of the film focuses on men talking in an empty warehouse, yet each scene was intense with riveting dialogue. "Are you going to bark all day little doggy, or are you going to bite?" "Why am I Mr. Pink?...Because you're a f***ing fag!!"

who don't know each other's name, team up to commit a heist, while one of them is rat. They struggle to figure out who it is, while they argue and almost kill the wrong men. This movie has some really cool sense and awesome lines but as I said about Jackie Brown the movie is slow at times.

Tarantino has yet to find his thematic transcendence with this first work, but his witty talent for writing compelling dialogue is on full display. Dialogue-wise, this may be his best-written work, full of tons of interesting cultural references and character moments. I find greater power in his later work, but, as a dark crime comedy, Reservoir Dogs is pretty entertaining.

One of the best of all time!

One thing this Tarantino classic is brilliant for is the script alone. Tarantino is by far the best in the business when it comes to on screen charectors and written dialogue! Reservoir Dogs is excellent proof of that and is one of the best casted movies that i can remember in a long time. Chris Penn (rip) who i thought wasn't that great of an actor during his short lived career, however he was brilliant as well. If you have never seen any of Tarantino's work, then i definatly suggest starting here as it will only leave you either wanting more or not. You see you either love Quentin or you dont their doesnt seem to be any inbetween. I myself before seeing this for the first time (RD was my very first Tarantino film ) did not like to sit through films that were heavy in dialogue as i fo...

"Reservoir Dogs" by Yojimbo

At the beginning of the nineties, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana looked in disgust at the formulaic, soulless lumbering cash cow guitar music had become and using cues from grittier, purer classics of the past singlehandedly swept away the self serving excesses of the genre and revolutionised it forever. Quentin Tarantino did exactly the same thing with cinematic crime drama. He examined the logistics of both being an undercover cop and planning a heist and introduced believable characters who spoke like real people; they weren't just posturing stereotypes punctuating another set of pointless explosions and car chases. He created an ensemble cast of actors for their charisma and ability, not their box office drawing power. He scored it with wit using obscure music from the past that complimented...

Reservoir Dogs review

A character driven crime flick that is enjoyable for repeat viewings. Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), Mr. Blue (Eddie Bunker), Mr. Brown (Quentin Tarantino), Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi), and Mr. White (Harvey Keitel). They are guided by Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney) and his son, "Nice Guy" Eddie (Chris Penn) plan on pilfering a diamond planned by Joe. Mr. White is with Mr. Orange who was shot. Mr. Blonde captures an officer named Marvin Nash (Kirk Baltz) and tortures him when the heist had gone haywire.

Screenplay was impressive with the following lines: Mr. Pink – “I don't tip because society says I have to. Alright, I tip when somebody really deserves a tip. If they put forth an effort, I'll give them something extra. But I mean, this tipping automatically, that'...
