Not as far below the rest of Tarantino's filmography as the imdb rating had me believe. In fact I'm a little bit surprised this isn't in the top 250 - the gulf between this and Pulp Fiction is minimal. Was not slow or drawn out at 2 and a half hours, kept me interested and very slick throughout (albeit maybe not as "cool" as PF). Samuel L. Jackson's beard string is a thing of beauty too.

This was actually my favourite Tarantino movie, something about it just made it more enjoyable and I loved the strong female lead.

When I first started the film I didn't really like it and was disappointed, but by the time the end credits rolled my opinion had completely changed. Its Tarantino at his best, but I still enjoy Pulp Fiction more.

Jackie Brown is Quentin Tarantino's love letter to point of view. His adaptation of Elmore Leonard's story is filled with moments where we are clearly in a certain character's head, a lot of which is achieved through music (producing another memorable Tarantino soundtrack). As they drive around the backways of Los Angeles, they listen to music and we get in their headspace. When we first see Jackie on the airport treadmill, we're with her, steeling herself to go through customs. When Cherry sees her for the first time, we're with him, the music swells and she becomes more and more in focus. And there's the whole bit with the multiple POVs at the mall to tell the complete 360 degree story. And he also gives us OUR point of view (or is it Ray's, in a sense?) by hiding details of the final solution. Tarantino wasn't all that far from Leonard to begin with, his was also a world of stupid criminals who think they're cool, so the adaptation makes sense even if fans seemed to miss the pop culture monologues. Truth is, Jackie Brown is just as good as the previous two films, it's just more upfront about how "uncool" its over-the-hill characters are, the nostalgia's cracks showing, and yet in that acceptance, making them cool again. I particularly love that wistful ending for both Cherry and Jackie, and I mean, Pam Grier and Robert Forster are just amazing in this, top to bottom.

Great chemistry between Grier and Forster.

An entertaining romp from Tarantino. I think it gets slammed as not being up to par only because there are so many better movies by Quentin, yet Jackie Brown is still good. It just doesn't have quite the punch of pop culture, characterizations, and drama that many of his other films have in spades.

Unfortunately a very underrated movie. One of Tarantino's best. A true masterpiece!

I have to second Kasparius here. This movie being in only one list baffles me.

Probably my favorite Tarantino film. It's populated by great characters, the plot is taut and plays out in an interesting way without being predictable or cliche, and the writing is amazing. Tarantino has quickly become one of my favorite directors, and this film is at the top of the list of reasons.
