Critics Reviews

The Onion (A.V. Club)
The most exciting thing about Jackie Brown is the director's seamless transition to a less flashy, revealing style; it's well-suited to the more character-oriented focus of the film... an assured, accomplished, and very good film.

Entertainment Weekly
Each scene is staged methodically, overdeliberately, as if it concealed some payoff zinger. But the zingers don't arrive. All we see is a reasonably clever Elmore Leonard caper that needed to be treated as fast, trashy fun.

Another successful film by Tarantino.
This is a very cool crime film, made as only Tarantino knows how. I enjoyed the twists and turns in the plot, and the soundtrack is great. But in my opinion, it's not Tarantino at his best. This might not be a problem if he hadn't set high...
