Tarantino's first movie is a small marvel of gunmen in a heist gone horribly wrong. Violent at times and others laid back and interesting.

**** out of ****    I've seen a few heist movies in my time, but I can't recall a great heist movie in which the actual act was never shown. So given that, Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" - his debut picture - is something genuinely new, or at least to me it is. Whether it takes its narrative stylistics from some other past heist flicks in which the events leading up to and following the actual heist took center stage instead of the actual heist is not of my concern. This …

On the way to a heist, three robbers all talked of their love of Kojak, Janis Ian and Boxcar Bertha
Chances are good that you saw Pulp Fiction before this movie.  I think only the indie film scene saw this movie first before it became in a roundabout way, the must see movie after Tarantino's breakout movie Pulp Fiction even though it was the first film he made.  The wait in between movies was amazingly short.      The story is how a Los Angeles gangster, Joe Cabot has put together a team of 6 armed robbers to knock over a jewelry store and steal a new shipment …

Not as good as Pulp Fiction, but one my favorites. A great debut for QT. A film that is both fun and intense at the same time.

Tarrantino's first movie showed he had the goods with his inventive script, quotable dialouge and great casting with the members of a gang of thieves out to rob a jewelry store and it going horribly wrong. Some say it was his jump start to Pulp Fiction and others will say it's just as good.

It has the all the makings of a great film but it lacks a true labor of love and a steady hand..
While it has all the ingredients of a powerful and brutal gangster classic   this 1992 cult sensation is just missing one key ingredient, Intelligence.  While it does show some intelligence in its plotting and it cinematography and camera work. But it lacks true human intelligence, wit and brutal style and reduces it's very diverse and colorful characters to nothing more than a bunch of squabbling children with loaded guns in nice black suits. But Tarantino  does his best  …
