The Hateful Eight Review

The Hateful Eight – Tarantino’s Eight Film

The movie starts out with some nods to the Westerns of days gone by. Though as I remember them they used to take place in the desert with rolling sand and extreme heat. Tarantino’s takes this twists and he does best and puts it in the middle of a blizzard. Of course he brings back some faces he likes to work with such as Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth, and many more. To start this off I have to say very few directors could pull off putting 8 people in a small room and turn it into something interesting for over 2 hours. Of course Tarantino can as he does use dialog to drive his film and violence to keep you on your toes.

Now don’t go thinking that this film is by any means light on violence and or language. There is plenty of blood to go around and even a fair amount of brain matter being splattered around. As far as the language goes if you have problems with a couple of the major ones being dropped on a regular basis as well as a couple racists words then you might want to stay clear. These words have to be used at least 100 times. Once again if you enjoy Tarantino’s previous work that you have come to expect that.

I did mention that you see some faces that you have seen before in Tarantino’s work. Considering the script for this film was leaked and almost caused the project to be canceled we still get some great performances. Samuel L Jackson delivers a performance very similar to what he did in Pulp Fiction and Black Snake Moan. He is the lead you just might not know it at first. Kurt Russell also is at the top of his game and really is everything you would expect from his character. If I had to pick a surprise performance it would have been Demian Bichir as Bob. I just felt like he really went above expectations making his character come alive. You also never can go wrong with Tim Roth at least in a Tarantino film. As with his previous films I really never question the people he puts into rolls. Jennifer Jason Leigh also delivers a great performance even though she takes a beating in this film and spends a good portion of it covered in blood, brains, and stew.

You put those great actors in a room, in the middle of a blizzard and you know that something is going to happen.  From violence, to some great dialog, to some surprise moments, to even some man junk, this movie finds a place for it all.

Overall I would say that as the movie came to a close that is when I started to be a little concerned.  Granted the ending is very much the logical ending for this film it just does not leave you walking away feeling like there was a winner.  For me that takes a few minutes to swallow but also recognize that it also is nice to not have the happy Hollywood ending that has come to be expected.

As I have warned above Tarantino’s work is not for everyone but for this guy he creates some of the most entertaining films I have watched and this one is follows that pattern.
