A botched robbery indicates a police informant, and the pressure mounts in the aftermath at a warehouse. Crime begets violence as the survivors — veteran Mr. White, newcomer Mr. Orange, psychopathic parolee Mr. Blonde, bickering weasel Mr. Pink and Nice Guy Eddie — unravel.

I watched this movie after my fellow critics had, and had heard mixed reviews, so I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! While Reservoir Dogs is not as polished as some of my favourite Tarantino films such as Djanjo Unchained or Inglorius Basterds, it is an excellent debut feature film from the director and I would probably rewatch. Loved the dialogue -it felt like I was in the convo and at times I actually lolled. The running length was refreshingly short, if it was any longer I think I would have tuned out. Critic sista Katniss warned me that it was super violent, but I think I expected it would be even more gory than it was, but then again I like crime movies so. Dunno m8. “not THAAT violent?”
Notable absence of any female characters lmao but nevertheless I liked the characters. A gritty cult classic.

“Not that violent”
Let me cut to the chase. Fellow critic and baby daddy Robson, explained that this movie he had recommended, despite being a Tarantino film, was “not that violent.”
This film is, instead, wholly violent. The plot, characters, dialogue is that of a grim violence. The core crime of a bank robbery is engulfed in a flame of gun shots, petrol covering, cut off ears and perhaps flames? It’s hard to remember all the details with my hands covering my eyes for a fair portion. The cast is brilliant, and I can see the appeal for others, however this film is not in my top 10, nor top 100. I am grateful for its short 98 minute length, and that the police officer wasn’t burnt alive, and happy to have ticked it off the list.
Overall, it was just aiiiiiight for me, ya know?

A classic Tarantino! Although it didn’t captivate me as much as the first time round, it still has the Tarantino elements that I love. The opening scene is just the best, it pulls you right in from the start, deep character development and back story with a comical flair. The plot is simple but Tarantino’s spin makes it so much more; raw gore as to be expected.
