The movie retribution Blog!
Written & Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
-You are full of $@#t if you deny the fact that This movie is one of Quentin Tarantino’s best and most respected film.
You give yourself a couple of seconds, get ahold of it and deal with it. What you don’t do is start shootin’ up the place and start killin’ people!
The dialogues are the only means you’ll have to form a basic understanding of what went down. The fact that you live the moments of this movie from the crew’s perspective is a great and entertaining experience but there were times where I was desperately hoping for a short scene concerning mr. Blonde’s irrational behavior during that fateful moment,but that might have been too much to ask i presume.
Settings and Characters
A few things that kept entertaining : The plot and the main characters.
Harvey Keitel’s professional yet instinctive acting and Tim Roth’s hysterical screen-time were moments I greatly appreciated, Although the back story as to how mr.Orange got his injury was somewhat of a let down. Don’t get me wrong it tied the loose ends nicely, but the build up to that particular scene was too great (and took way too long) for it to fall that flat. I think Steve Buscemi was a great choice as mr. Pink but I’m still left wondering why they casted Edward Bunker. To fulfill the empty but yet not needed spot perhaps ? Kind of an unnecessary move on Tarantino’s part knowing that the movie didn’t need him AT ALL.
What I find remarkable about the plot is that they made a crime thriller about a robbery gone wrong without showing the robbery,not even once . The enigma of the failed robbery unfolds itself inside an empty warehouse where they have to deal with loose ends and the rising frustration while each main character’s story is shown.The mood is mostly filled with tension and distrust in which Michael Madsen well-played role as mr.Blonde shines as the suspicious and quite dangerous member of the group, you should look forward to his present that will lighten the mood (hint : do cop’s bleed hard?) in a sadistic way.
Despite the few ‘missing frames’ I was desperately waiting for, I could still say that this by far one of my favorite movies.It’s an escape of today’s generic crime thrillers .The movie pulls you in and fills your head with questions and confrontations as you watch a hand full of desperate criminals which identities are sealed behind aliases preventing unnecessary attachment if something would happen, just like i like it.I strongly recommend getting this great work .
Experiencing human instincts exposing themselves in critical times while maintaining a solid and well written story.Yes, this is one movie you do not want to miss.
