Jackie Brown (1997)


jb“Look man, there’s only three reasons why you can’t make your court date. One, you’re in a hospital. Two, you’re in jail. Three, your ass is dead.” Winston

Number of Times Seen – 3 (In Theater, on DVD and 11 March 2013)

Brief Synopsis – A flight attendant must fend for herself when she is caught between DEA agents and a criminal element

My Take on it – Tarantino takes an Elmore Leonard book and tries to put his spin on it.  He is better at writing his own original scripts. The movie is good, but seems a bit drawn out.  It is clearly missing Tarantino’s “normal people conversations” type of dialogue .

As always, Tarantino attracts high caliber actors for his projects. Here he employs Pam Greer, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forester, Bridget Fonda, Robert De Niro and Michael Keaton.

The story gets a bit convoluted towards the end, but if you’re really paying attention, you won’t miss anything.

Bottom Line – Not as good as  Tarantino’s previous work, but still pretty good. Recommended for those who enjoy the genre

Rating – Globe Worthy
