Not for everyone, this film will be liked by Tarantino fans
Many people have a liking for movies made by Quentin Tarantino for the simple reason that they normally contain bloodshed amidst mayhem of a typical kind not easy on your nerves.But then Quentin's admirers are also not in great numbers and notwithstanding the violence they find a great finesse in his craft.
This film is entirely set in freezing wilderness in Wyoming and most of the action takes place in an inn called Minnie's haberdashery. The film is dialogue heavy and the script must have weighed 10 kilos or so!
The plot relates to bounty hunters taking their prisoners to town to hang where they would collect their prize money. Enroute they are surrounded by a snow blizzard forcing them to seek refuge in the inn where they converse and argue over endless cups of coffee. Very soon gruesome violence follows amidst blood and gore as only Tarantino can depict. Not a dull moment and the director can never be faulted for allowing the film to drag with long winded dialogue which is generously peppered with choice cuss words.Critics of Tarantino who talk of his blackxploitation have another case in point as " nigger" Samuel Jackson fights to retain his self respect. Incidentally he has a major chunk of the dialogue in the film. Watch him say that" the only time a black man is safe is when the white man is unarmed."
The diehard fans of Tarantino will not be disappointed. There is plenty of his special craft in this comparitively long duration movie. Kurt Russel plays a parallel role as the bounty hunter taking his female catch to claim the fistful of dollars.
