What Reservoir Dogs may have been trying to be. Best Tarantino film since Mama Tiger reunited with her daughter.

Aptly titled, the 8th movie by Quinton Tarantino, provides an intriguing atmosphere & some tense & interesting character dynamics. The score roars throughout & the main theme matches the building tone of the plot. Some time is spent amidst the vista of harsh winter on rugged terrain. Though, most of the story takes place in interiors: a stagecoach, a barn & a cabin - very realistic seeming set design that immersed me in the post Civil War time period of the movie. It is in these places that characters interact- for better or worse- & their histories are revealed. I enjoyed how the script interweaved some of their backstories together. I also liked the shots from a bird’s eye view, looking down on the characters, through rafters, & deep focus following a character’s perspective. Plus, a subtle & literal use of Chekhov’s gun. If I had to criticize one major thing, it would be a hope for a bit more heart over Tarantino’s signature dramatization of violence. Also, Jennifer Jason Leigh’s portrayal of her character was brilliant & layered. This movie swells with mystery, building up to an enthralling climax. I would recommend for fans of Westerns and/or character/dialogue-driven movies. 3.5/5 stars. @reviewperson of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie's great fun. Give it a go some evening, when the snow's high, the wind screams and tears, and the drink warms.

Generally called one of Tarantino's works that didn't hit the mark, but I love it.

Good, but definitely not one of Quentin's best works.

Classic Tarantino - lots of over the top blood and gore with a rollicking good story woven in.

Stupid movie.............Just another Tarantino wannabe... Sat through it once, never again...

Great film, a little long, but I feel like this is a Reservoir Dogs western.

As a writer and director of movies, no one is better at character developement than Quentin Tarantino. The problem with this one, and many other Tarantino projects, is the story. His stories always start out good, and then it's like he just get's bored and quits. I wish Mr. Tarantino would find another writer-storyteller he could conspire with.

A blizzard keeps eight strangers seeking shelter at a lodge, but each have to survive more that just the storm.
