    Before I start the review I would like to say that censoring an A-rated movie is dumb, these movies are meant to be viewed by adults who pay money to watch a movie with mature themes so cutting parts out of a movie, muting certain words and needless health warnings take you away from the experience.

    Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is the 9th Movie by Quentin Tarantino and stars Leonardo Dicaprio and Brad Pitt in the leading roles and follows Rick Dalton a struggling actor and his long-time stuntman and friend Cliff Booth.

    This has to be one of the least violent Tarantino movies to date and also his funniest one. There are lots of scenes where characters just sit and talk and thanks to the well-written dialogue and great performances they are a treat to watch, so if you are expecting exhilarating action sequences back to back you will be disappointed.

    On the technical side of things, the movie looks gorgeous with amazing camera work, editing, and a great score. The performances are the best part of the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio giving one of his funniest performance to date playing an actor who takes himself a bit too seriously and is hilarious to watch.

    Brad Pitt knocks it out of the park with his role as the cool and collected stuntman who always has his friends back, this has to be one of the best performances the actor has given in the past decade.

    Margot Robbie only has a small part in the movie but her performance as the late Sharon Tate felt real and sincere, the rest of the cast does a great job but the standout has to be Julia Butters who plays a child actor in the movie and it was delightful to watch her performance.

    Overall Once Upon a Time In Hollywood is not Tarantino's best movie but that in no way means it is not a gem in its own right and is definitely worth watching because movies like these are rarely made in mainstream Hollywood.

    P.S That Climax, thank you, Mr. Tarantino, It Is EPIC!
