About the Movie
What do a sexy stewardess (Pam Grier), a street-tough gun runner (Samuel L. Jackson), a lonely bail bondsman (Robert Forster), a shifty ex-con (Robert De Niro), an earnest federal agent (Michael Keaton), and a stoned-out beach bunny (Bridget Fonda) have in common? They're six players on the trail of a half million dollars in cash! The only questions are...who's getting played...and who's gonna make the big score? Combining an explosive mix of intense action and edgy humor, Quentin Tarantino’s crime thriller introduced Pam Grier and Robert Forster to a new generation of filmgoers and earned Forster an Oscar® nomination.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's like a scuzz-bucket film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick at his most static-mesmeric.
Fresh: Between Jackson's opining and De Niro's hopeless alibis when he messes up, Jackie is good for a bundle of bloody ho-ho-hos.
Fresh: Offers an abundance of pleasures, especially in the realm of characterization and atmosphere.
Fresh: The tale is filled with funny, gritty Tarantino lowlife gab and a respectable body count, but what is most striking is the film's gallantry and sweetness.
Great movie, period.
I must admit I'm a huge Tarantino fan, but what I love about this movie is Samuel L. Jackson's performance. He nails the dialog, the character, the attitude and carries the movie from start to finish. As is true with all of Tarantinos flicks it's perfectly cast and perfectly written, a must watch over and over, never gets old.
QUENTIN TARANTINO'S UNDERRATED FILM !
It amazes me how no one ever talks about Jackie Brown especially when it comes to Quentin Tarantino. Sure its his least violent film, but it's definitely one of his most entertaining. Jackie Brown is hilarious, intense and very entertaining. Not to mention this film has some great storytelling, dialogue, character development, music and acting especially Sam Jackson's performance. It's all around a great film especially if you a Tarantino fan it's a must see!!!
So good all the time
This is by far my #1 all time favorite movies. I've literally seen it 25+ times. It never gets old. I enjoy the different scenes and background stuff going on as well. Pam Grier is incredible as Jackie Brown and Robert Deniro, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster and others are great too! The soundtrack is incredible and I don't think I'll ever see a movie better than this !!!
