An under apreciated classic.
Verified purchase
Coming off the heels of Pulp Fiction almost any movie would seem "inferior" and many bash on Jackie Brown for just that. Which is rediculous to me, because although not as good as a movie that many consider one of the greatest movies of all time, Jackie Brown is still a great cat and mouse crime movie, with great performances and an awesome soundtrack to boot.

Jackie Brown has to be one of the most underrated movies out there just because of the directors previous movie, and it is mind boggling because off the top of my head I can't think of any other directors movie who had this judgement so harshly. Jackie Brown is a great movie that is definately worth watching and having in your collection.

Brilliant...Pam Grier is a Goddess!

An Absolute Pleasure.
There's nothing to fault about this film.
All the characters were played brilliantly by all the actors. They all showed such talent. Samuel L Jackson & Pam Grier carried the film so well. Why haven't we seen her in more film? She is so sexy. Don't remember Keaton playing such a quirky character. The money exchange scene with Robert De Niro & Bridget Fonda has to be seen, It was hilarious.
Great twisted storyline.
Fabulous song tract.
Inspired directing.
100 percent perfect.

A great Tarantino moment
Verified purchase
If you like Tarantino films you'll love this take on the blaxploitation films of the 70's. Pam Grier plays an air stewardess unwillingly recruited to play a sting operation against nasty Samuel L Jackson. Cur the usual Tarantino dialogue and situations we all know and love. Great musical support, and all of the characters, and there are many, really do shine. I like the AK47 quote best myself. Thoroughly recommended.

Brilliant Film from start to finish. ( No spoilers)
Verified purchase
Despite being a bit of a Tarantino fan I missed this one. Maybe it was the billing of it as a "Blaxpoitation" film but it just did not seem to appeal. This was a big mistake as it is now one of my favourite of his films.

I loved everything, the authentic late 60s atmosphere, the characters, and a plot that twists and turns but still makes sense in the end. And what a cast, great actors but given a chance to develop the characters and bounce of each other.

A fantastic film and one even those who are not fans of Tarantino could well enjoy.

The one I’d missed - like a new movie.
Verified purchase
I never fancied Jackie Brown when it was released. It just didn’t look like my kind of movie. I’d seen Reservoir dogs and Pulp Fiction which were amazing and then the. When JB was released… Meh… I’d always meant to come back to it though and never did until my girlfriend said she wanted to watch it at the weekend. An excellent opportunity and it was so good! Great but subtle acting from Robert De Niro, a surprise to see Michael Keaton as, well, Michael Keaton. Sam Jackson being, okay, Sam Jackson. And Pam Grier showing everyone how it’s done. If you like QT movies then you’ve probably seen this. If you’re just scrolling looking for something to watch then this is it. A fine cast doing great work in a well paced movie that leaves you feeling satisfied. Can’t ask for more.

A mature film, that gets better at each new vision
Verified purchase
One of Tarantino's less understood and appreciated films, maybe because he decided to add some drama and intimacy to his usual and irresistible circle of characters and brilliant plots and dialogues.
It is not easy to tune in with that, because as you start laughing then you sense there is something more going on, like this time he wants to know how they feel and not how they show or hide their feelings.
It is maybe a more classic Tarantino, with less abuse of music, some slower tempos and longer scenes and shots. It is like he wants to take a break fomr the story and, while it unfolds, he puts his eye on characters' relation and the way they develop throughout the story.
As usual he gets the best out of the actors but here he gets even more: De NIro best performance in years and a refreshing return of two old seventies stars
A film that improves everytime you watch it.

A smart, funny, sassy, crime thriller - with a fantastic central performance by Pam Grier
Verified purchase
my favourite Tarantino film; I LOVE Jackie Brown! It's Tarantino's most complete, efficient and polished film. Samuel L Jackson is terrifying as - I think - Tarantino's most repellent character, Ordell Robbie. Robert Forster gives a charismatic and soulful performance as Max Cherry. And as Jackie Brown herself, Pam Grier is simply magnificent. Tough, sassy, uncompromising, sexy, vulnerable, smart - she may well be my favourite Tarantino heroine. The story is brisk, the pace never flags, and the film features all those idiosyncratic Tarantino touches, but never gets side-tracked by them. This is also probably the easiest Tarantino film for viewers who are not normally fans of his work, with probably the broadest mainstream appeal. It stands up to repeated viewings and I'd recommend this film to anyone.

Tarantino On A Go Slow To Know Though
Verified purchase
The movie was tame compared to many QT films (I didnt find a problem) but my son was disappointed when you killed off Louis. To hear my 15 year old son shout "bastard" as shots were fired while sat next to me was heartbreaking because I had worked very hard to encourage him to drop that word by the age of 3.
Forgive those truckers as Olive J would say.

My son does love Samuel Jackson though (as he does all SLJ movies) and would like for you to compensate his dissatisfaction of wasting what could have been 2+ hours of useful exam revision time by either making him a Kill Bill Katana sword or by giving recognition to his school in Tarantinos next movie - which my son tells me could be the last as rumours circulate suggesting he will only make 10 films.

See you at the proms!
