“ This is Tarantino's first major film, and is worth watching for the dialogue alone.
“ over all the film was very enjoyable and i could watch it every day and still be suprised and shocked.
“ The budget was small, the sets almost non existent, yet Tarantino created a wonderful piece of film making art, and assembled a cast worth watching.
“ In my opinion, this film is perfect for what it is: a kick-ass crime movie with snappy dialogue and lots of twists along the way.
“ what I like about this movie is that its a tense and exciting test of male egos on a collision course with just the right mix of wit and cynicism which washes down its melodramatic excesses with sly satire on the blood-and-guts elements of crime movies, there's not many movies out there as powerful or original even do Tarantino got the idea from a Hong Kong based film.
“ Moreover, some parts were very boring.
“ Then the movie itself, electrifying and fascinating from the word go.
“ When Pink and White were evaluating their situation shortly after the heist I found the sense of uncertainty and threat so tangible and their decision to actually _stay_ in that warehouse so unbearable that _I_ almost wanted to leave the room so that at least _someone_ would be getting away from that place...
“ Reservoir Dogs is nearly twenty-five years old and it is still as exciting and relevant today as it was then.
“ It's incredibly compelling throughout, with snappy dialogue driving character-based brilliance.
“The film itself gets a bit boring in my opinion.
“ What makes this movie a classic isn't its deep metaphors on life or social commentary, it's its memorable characters and unique, riveting style.
“ This is one of the few films to ever come out that can be just as intriguing reading the script alone as opposed to seeing it unfold in the big screen.
“A cult classic with wonderful acting, wonderful pacing and a gripping story.
“ I did not find it very fascinating, and the dialogues were not masterful, but rather boring.
“ I like the suits they wear as well as the story-line because it never really shows the robbery, and as we learn throughout the movie, the chaos in the store may have in fact been more intense than originally thought.
“The aspect which is the tip of the iceberg for me and what made me on the edge of my seat when I first watched this film back in 1996 is the skipping of one bit of the film to another.
“ It's set mostly in one location, and as the tension builds in the gangster's hideout the film becomes so unbearably intense it threatens to explode through the screen.
“ it is funny, exciting, dramatic, and brilliant.
“'Reservoir Dogs' is smart and entertaining, with interesting characters, great dialogue and an absorbing storyline.
“ Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's feature debut is a viscerally entertaining, powerful, witty, and well acted piece of work that at once showcased his way with dialogue and tendency to leap back and forth in time.
“ Nicely entertaining, convincingly executed and completely ineffectual.
“ Oscar-worthy performances abound, most especially from greviously wounded Tim Roth and nervously intense Steve Buscemi.
“ Solidly entertaining all the way through, "Reservoir Dogs" served as a fine announcement to the world that a fresh talent had arrived, and holds up extremely well.
“ A poignant message wrapped up by a gripping plot, with flawlessly created characters on the side, and all told using the twisted narrative skills of Tarrantino.
“ Tarantino's accolades from giving American cinema the resuscitation it needed mirrors what has happened, at least since the 70's, with Martin Scorsese's 'Mean Streets', both in terms of entertaining violence and usage of music in the scoring of films.
“ The story is gripping without even having to show any of the heist.
“ this is brilliantly directed by Quentin Tarantino , it's fast paced and stylish with lots of of cool shots.
“ This movie has a highly entertaining script that is supported ever so well with great acting across the board.
“ I thoroughly enjoyed it still for its acting, the story, the characters and the dialogue, despite it being his weakest.
“ This film is an exciting story of betrayal and of humane trust and sadistic violence.
“ speaker will still be exciting.
“ I tried watching it again, but I fell asleep right in the middle of it.
“ The movie is dead, dull to look at.
“ No story should ever be told in chronological order.
“"Critically acclaimed for its raw power and breathtaking ferocity," as accurately described on the Special Edition re-release, this is "the brilliant American gangster movie classic from writer-director Quentin Tarantino.
“ There is the usual Tarantino dialog, featuring lots of cursing, lots of pop-culture, but also unexpected humor, and also boasts Tarantino musical selections that fit the scenes well, most people think of Reservoir Dogs now when hearing the song "Stuck In the Middle With You.
“ Though it was the cinematography that made the film intense and rough.
“ All of the other performers who had been sitting like stone idols all that time went suddenly into spasms of twitching, yawning, scratching, and moaning with relief.
“If one tries to think with his own head, he is sure to agree that Tarantino's first movie is too pretentious and uninteresting, its space design is claustrophobic, and there is way too much blood that serves no purpose.
“ I felt the action scenes were trying to be entertaining versus plot tools.
“ There was one particular character who was rather pointless and he literally has no character in the film, even the poster and the tagline of the film forgot he existed.
“ Violence can fit if its done well (Fargo, Godfather, Pulp Fiction) but this violence is totally pointless.
“ But the raid backfires and when the survivors meet back at an empty warehouse they begin to suspect each other of being the traitor who tipped off the police.
“ Most importantly, it is a raw gangster flick that pays a fair amount of homages to the classic film-noir genre of the 50s and 60s, and that is only half of what makes this movie subversively entertaining.
“From the opening snappy dialogue to the final shoot out you are gripped in the tale of a heist gone wrong.
“ The movie follows the same gangster theme that all of them do however it's an enjoyable movie.
“ The action is chaotic and lot of dialogues are meaningless and way too long.
“ The acting of Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, and Michael Madsen is riveting in its unflinching intensity.
“ This type of storytelling is truly exciting and fun to watch, and is a huge reason why "Reservoir Dogs" works.
“ Keitel, who plays a pretty level-headed guy here, plays Winston Wolfe in Pulp; Roth, who doesn't have to do that much for most of the movie, was Pumpkin in Pulp; Buscemi, who does a great job as the terminally interesting and entertaining Mr. Pink, was the waiter in Pulp; Madsen, who plays my favorite Dog, Blonde, because of his gleeful derangement, is Budd in Kill Bill.
“Rounding out the cast, you have the always enjoyable Steve Buscemi (MR PINK), Tarantino favorite Tim Roth (MR ORANGE), Tarantino favorite Quentin Tarantino (MR BROWN), Chris Penn as NICE GUY EDDIE and finally.....
“ Tarantino's script + direction means that the movie was pretty gripping.
“ Some camera angles are maybe original, but really kind of pointless I think.
“ Then the movie itself, electrifying and fascinating from the word go.
“I can't really imagine why you would consider a movie where one character is slowly bleeding to death in the center of the screen for most of it, another has his ear cut off, another does a long drawn out torture scene, and the incessant 'fuck you's' and shootings left right up and down....
“How Tarantino plays this rich cast of rogues against each other and the constant switches in narrative time-line is strategic and fascinating.
“ The pacing was off.
“ Wow, a movie about gangsters cussing and waffling on, BORING.
“ Pulp Fiction shook the foundations of modern cinema, Jackie Brown had Tarantino being smarter and even more complex and the eastern/western homage 'Kill Bill' saga, was a bloody, thrilling and beautifully served dish of revenge.
“ Harvey Keitel is excellent and intense as Mr. White-Larry with Keitel bringing depth and power to the role.
“ Having said that,this movie is absolutely riveting in it's movements from the ordinary, to the grim, to the horrific aspects of a career criminal.
“ This has to be one of the most intense movies I've ever seen!
“but most importantly, Gripping .
“ It is the most entertaining movie I have ever seen.
“ The witty dialogue is the entertaining part of this movie and to me, that is more entertaining to watch than a bunch of explosions, as I feel this would not even fit in with the story here.
“Now, despite this intense warning, I greatly respect the film--especially since it was made for next to nothing and without the big studio money.
“ It's set mainly in an empty warehouse, with 4 of the nameless criminals: Mr White, Blonde, Pink and Orange and a poor kidnapped policeman.
“ It is dramatic, action packed, and even has some comedy.
“ Instead, critics applauded Tarantino for his strong characters, clever dialog, use of violence and music; and the effortless use of structure and narrative, which helped to turn a seemingly pedestrian crime-thriller into an exciting and enigmatic exercise in cinematic tension building.
“ Reservoir Dogs already calls the face of attention with the great cast we have in the film, Edward Bunker , Harvey Keitel , Lawrence Tierney , Chris Penn , Michael Madsen , Steve Buscemi , Tim Roth and Quentin Tarantino, who acts and directs , this is also Tarantino 's directorial debut , and could not get better, the script is good, nothing spectacular else is good , the performances are very good, the action scenes that do not give so many are good too, the film has excellent dialogues plus has many useless dialogues and no need for the plot, the chemistry of the actors is good, I found a few moments dragged, most are few, Reservoir Dogs is a very good movie , not enough to be the best of Tarantino , besides being a great start pro Tarantino at the helm.
“ Amazing, simply stunning.
“ It would probably be the funniest yet most serious film that has ever been made and it would certainly be one of the most entertaining.
“ The dialog is witty, some scenes intense and gripping, making you almost fear what happens next.
“ The high point is Mr. Blondel(Madsen) in a torture scene involving a knife and Stealers Wheels song "Stuck in The Middle with You.
“ If anything, it makes the film feel more incomplete and empty.
“ The film bristles with snappy dialogue and is slickly played by an expert cast.
“As enjoyable and fresh it feels, I think it is imperfect.
“ The pace was slower than what I had expected from the man who made Pulp.
“ 7/10 Cinematography - I really don't like reviewing this part of any movie, as I feel that it is so mundane and uninteresting.
“ Madsen plays the unpredictable role of Mr. Blonde almost too realistically, constructing a character that nearly steals the show, and who certainly has one of the most memorable moments of the film.
“ It was long, boring, and had barely any of the comic touches that made PF so great.
“ This soon accounts to a series of verbal spars supplemented with audacious dialogue and tension that leads to unpredictable bloodbaths.
“ Quentin Tarantino directs great sequences from the opening diner scene, to the cool slow-motion walking scene, to the intense shootings.
“I loved Pulp Fiction but this was just too bloody horrible to be enjoyable for meAlgis Kuliukas
“ The dialogue and atmosphere is perfect for this fascinating story of small-time, small-minded crooks.
“ The movie is entertaining throughout and is true to life.
“Tarantino has a very dynamic and explosive visual style which enhances the brutal action, and you'll be on the edge of your seat for all 90 minutes.
“ The conflict is anti-predicable and very exciting.
“ However, the film begins to lose steam once the story begins to flash back, showing dull and uninteresting scenes that feel as if they were only included to get the picture to an hour and a half.
“ If you can get past the foul language, this is a entertaining movie.
“ Reservoir Dogs is a classic for a reason, it has very colorful characters who are engaging and interesting.
“ The plot is extremely intriguing, what you would expect from Tarantino.
“Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino (Kill Bill Vol.1 & Vol.2, Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction) made an fascinating crime film with interesting characters, sharp dialogue and moments of dark humour.
“Although an original way to make this film, this film is mostly boring, with an exception on the prologue of the film which I found entertaining for some reason.
“ I get that many people see this movie as ''different'' just to show others they enjoyed it, it would be awesome if everybody wasn't afraid of expressing their opinion and sticking to it.
“ The story, too, is well written and engrossing.
“ I found this movie to be very boring and absolutely preposterous at times.
“ RD is funny, entertaining, intelligent and actually not so violent as some people say.
“ The stage is set in the diner scene, as the cast takes turns mouthing cleverly-scripted yet coldly unfunny trash talk, and by all accounts reaches its climax in the bloody scene that finally got me to walk out of the theater, 20 minutes after I first felt the urge.
“ Quentin Tarantino's directing debut is riveting.
“ Other than that the movie is incredibly predictable.
“ All in all, it is a very entertaining neo-noir film that is from an indie film legend.
“ There's a fabulous cast, a smart and witty script and a circular time line which allows for fascinating twists and turns which would not have been possible were the story told in the traditional manner, from beginning to end.
“ The story is wonderfully compelling, while the dialogue is very hard-boiled and attitude-laced with plenty of pop culture references, and references to TV shows and hip movies.
“I mentioned the non-linear storytelling that was used in both "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction", unfortunately however, the concept that was so exciting in "Pulp Fiction", seems like a gimmicky way of hiding the movie's greatest flaw: Nothing much happens.
“ And even the smallest roles are noteworthy; Stephen Wright as the bored DJ of K-BILLY always makes me smile.
“ Some wonderful twists and a stunning ending make this movie what is sure to be known as one of the classics of the 1990's.
“ Blonde) who gives a very intense portrayal of a psychotic robber.
“This was a great caper with excellent acting, excellent premise, EXCELLENT dialogue, and an excellent, unexpected ending.
“ The worst movie in history .
“ There is only one thing I'm going to be critical about: the discovering of who is the undercover policeman came about too soon for my liking; it could have easily been drawn out a bit longer.
“orange played by Tim Roth the dramatic one, ,funky Mr brown played by Tarantino himself,Mr blue the quiet one, the most hilarious but a coward Mr.pink played by Steve Buscemi,nice and funny guy Eddie and lastly the big boss Joe with all of these interesting character plus the perfectly well written script this is really a entertaining fun movie for everyone who watched it.
“ Be sure to see this film as I enjoyed it a lot.
“ Pretty thrilling .
“ Thus it being pointless.
“ Good, entertaining movie .
“ Completely BORING.
“ Reservoir Dogs is easily one of his best films, there is a certain sense of simplicity to the scenes, the writing is flawless and the characters are entertaining.
“Tarantino is believed to be a humorist however his humor is undoubtedly bland and mainly consists of filthy abuses.
“" so i watched it, and it was THE WORST movie i have ever seen!
“) are unexpected and brilliant.
“ Clearly, Tarantino knew early on the secret weapon of a suspenseful drama: comedy.
“ Tarantino demonstrated his talent for dialouge with his stunning debut masterpiece in 1992.
“ The violence is slow, loud, painful and with consequences that the characters have to deal with.
“ There are long intense scenes with heated dialogue while the survivors discuss the possibility of being set up, which is eminently possible given that none of the gents with 'colourful' names know each other, having all been teamed up for this one off job.
“ It's also kind of slow and almost the whole movie takes place at only one location.
“ Waste of time really.
“ Also the final shootout scene where everyone is lying nearly dead on the ground is way too long.
“ Totally boorish, tasteless, boring, repetitious, tedious & moronic.
“ This rubbish shouldn't even be a 8 rating, this boring crap should get a much lower rating than it does.
“ And Randy Brooks is great and entertaining in his supporting role.
“ This movie was engrossing, riveting, horrifying and thoroughly entertaining as well.
“ The tension and unpredictability alone make 'Reservoir Dogs' a fascinating watch.
“ This short and bloody piece of work is completely breathtaking, a legit masterpiece.
“ I went away with that disappointed forever feeling, yuk, shrug, and ho-hum.
“ Interesting and exciting movie .
“ Today, with most artists now with an encyclopedic knowledge of cinema, such that they can, like Tarantino, spin entire tales out of bits and pieces in a matter of days, the challenge is to slow down and let go of the mix-tape.
“ The story is gritty, suspenseful, and downright disturbing.
“ A stunning and thunderous achievement.
“ The rest of the film is a gritty, action packed look back on what happened.
“ It has a great cast, terrific script, really good performances and breathtaking scenes.
“ Law enforcement was waiting for the unexpected criminals and a blood bath occurred.
“ Harvey Keitel is the type of actor I'd watch even if it involved him reading out his shopping list , and the scene where it's revealed who the undercover cop is memorable along with the compelling " How's he going to explain that to the bad guys when they return ?
“ worst movie ever (spoiler alert) .
“The film was very violent, funny and entertaining despite this being my least favorite Tarantino movie by a tiny bit.
“ But it's the way all the blood and violence is presented to you that's fascinating, it's pure art.
“ The intriguing thing is that the 6 members (1 of them is an undercover cop) of the crew do not know anything about each other, and are given new names by the guy who hired them - Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney).
“ Don't get me wrong, it's a compelling script.
“ You may like his movies or not, yet they are entertaining to watch.
“ The intelligent thing that the film does is never actual show the heist itself as even though by the end of the film most things would be solved, it leaves some mystery still lingering there and makes the film more intriguing throughout rather than just simply showing stuff.
“ Disjointed, Unappealing Flick (Quasi-Spoiler) .
“ Then we have the bored wife of the mob boss overdosing.
“ Overall, Tarantino's debut is one of subtly, and yet one of brutality, that makes the most of its characters, its dialogue, its soundtrack, and , if nothing else, its awe inspiring camera work - which is textbook for any director to follow if they want to know how to use a camera.
“Only a half-wit would bitch about Tarantino's formulaic storytelling.
“ In an unexpected way the violence and evil help to make portray them more vividly.
“ Reservoir Dogs is an outstanding thriller, as challenging, disturbing and gripping as any film you'll ever see.
“ But for me, the thing that strikes me the most is the entertaining story.
“ It's a great testament to the movie that all the characters come off as complex and fascinating within a span of 99 mins.
“ There are two ways one can view a film like Reservoir Dogs (and, indeed, much of Quentin Tarantino's work): a) as an uninspired hodge-podge of ideas blatantly lifted from countless other movies (in this case, a large helping of '80s Hong Kong action thriller City On Fire with countless 'nods' to other crime classics along the way), or b) as an exciting, stylish and highly entertaining exercise in revisionist film-making that sees a bold director mining the work of others to forge a classic of his own.
“ The ear scene was superb: Michael Madsen dancing and cutting off the cop's ear with the physicality of an oral surgeon pulling a tooth, the cops laments, the unexpected killing shots from Mr. Orange...
“ Reservoir Dogs is a highly enjoyable ride that promises to thrill, shock and entertain any audience able to listen, pay attention and stomach its brutality.
“There's a groovy 70's soundtrack, some stunning cinematography and some reasonable editing to top off this amazing story.
“ When I watch a film, I have certain guidelines/expectations that must be met in order for me to considerate it entertaining.
“ While I do agree many of the dialogs are tedious and don't really relate to my life or anyone else that I know, they paint a believable human image of people we'd like to do away with.
“ The title is very misleading, as the film itself was enjoyable, just unexpected, mainly the reason for this low rating.
“ I don't really like violent movies, but I liked Pulp Fiction, which I found clever and compelling.
“ The first time I saw Reservoir Dogs, I was sick with a fever, bored out of my mind, and needed something, anything, to take my mind off of being sick.
“ Less a film, more a mind blowing, pulse pounding powerhouse, Reservoir Dogs is certainly one of the defining films of the 90s.
“ However, I do feel like the film spent a bit too much time on the flashbacks and the reveal of this film was actually pretty predictable.
“ Seriously this is a waste of your time.
“ Everything he followed up with disinterested me, the dialogue laden, near 3 hour yawn-fest "Pulp Fiction", the meandering "True Romance", the dull vampire offering "From Dusk till Dawn", and "...
“ Gangsters talking about their life and trying to be humorous, BORING!
“ I was absolutely shocked about how terribly boring this movie was.
“ The characters- The characters are original and entertaining, each in their own different way, no matter how little screen time they get.
“For starters the film uses a very disjointed means of telling the story.
“ In the middle of the movie, I became bored.
“Superbly entertaining and exciting fare that is definitely rewatchable.
“ The pace, while unconventially slow for such a film breaks in here and there, causing excitement then anger then surprise and so on.
“But this is balanced out by a truly riveting performance from Michael Madsen as the sinister & sadistic Mr Orange; and another strong performance from Keitel as usual.
“ The soundtrack is understandably legendary, the dialogue is engrossing, and the ending catches you out every single time.
“ From first impression, this film appears to be slow, difficult to follow, and completely random.
“ The dialog is good and funny as we expect but some of the writing is a little dry and plotting slow.
“ The movie just seemed pointless, especially after the ending.
“ When someone talks about seriously engaging in a first class felony, they get attention, once they totter with the idea of murder, people are all ears, at least they should be!!
“ Like all his films, Tarantino keeps his films raw, out of control, uncut, and totally unpredictable.
“) bottom line, it is a terrifically entertaining film from start until finish.
“ Don't waste your time.
“ Yes, I must say, this movie was boring...
“I give some credit to Tarantino for making an entertaining movie, something he always is able to do.
“ Quentin Tarantino did a wonderful job with this truly unique movie, which will keep viewers on the edge of their seats with thrills, surprises, and tense scenes.
“ Seriously, if you like movies as much as I do, you shouldn't waste your time with this.
“ Shallow, unintelligent and pretentious .
“ Reservoir Dogs tells the intriguing story of a handful of 'colour-coded' criminals.
“ This movie is so horribly boring, so boring that i even fast forward all of it and still, i just decided to leave it and not finish it.
“ An original, inventive & ageless masterpiece that's bursting with a reinvigorating passion and is also notable for launching the careers of many, best of them being Tarantino himself who, in the following years, would go on to script an unmatched legacy of his own, Reservoir Dogs is a milestone of gripping, clever & quality storytelling.
“ Reservoir Dogs is a profound start to Tarantino's career; one that's hard to beat with an unbeatable style, fast paced dialogue and an unforgettable scene that, whenever Stuck in the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel comes on, springs to mind instantly.
“ Even in his first film, you can see the style, classic lines, and intriguing that made Tarantino the household name that he is.
“ The movie avoids all the cliché bullshit, giving us a unique storyline and dialogue.
“ The plot unfolds in ways where our minds take hairpin turns from what we were immediately expecting and gives us something much better and much more riveting and unpredictable.
“ I have to say this is a very good movie, i love a lotta things in it: Beautiful music, very good fotography (all the colours are quite dull, giving to the blood a real importance)and a very good cast, I love the dialogs too, they are so real, in so many movies the speaches are really complicated and studied, sometimes your looking at a some kinda gangster talking like some Shakesperian Character!
“ Reservoir Dogs is a throughly entertaining crime movie that doesn't take itself gravely seriously and presents a thrilling tale in a comical way.
“ That sort of thing is just so ho-hum, clichéd, and juvenile that I felt like tuning out right away.
“ Intriguing low-budget caper film stalls midway through .
“ It's a quite strange and slow movie.
“If excessive dialogue or drawn-out scenes aren't bookended by major turning points, they're usually blanketed by some kind of tension, such as Mr. Orange lying there freaking out from his wound as Pink and White discuss what to do next.
“ Short, no action, zero plot progression, drawn-out irrelevant conversations, boring.
“ ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ .
“ What results is a tightly wound, slow-burning little crime-drama known as "Reservoir Dogs.
“ Lawrence Tierney is wonderful and intense as Joe Cabot,the boss of the group of thieves.
“ Useless and tasteless violence like this is only needed in a movie with no story, if the movie already has a story it turns the viewer away from an otherwise provocative story as was the case in Reservoir Dogs.
“ Watching this after 'Inglourious Basterds' made dissatisfaction even more unbearable.
“ Waste of time, don't worth.
“" The brutal torture scene was a little too intense for me.
“ Hailed as a cult masterpiece by some and condemned as an overly violent rip off by others `Reservoir Dogs' is still definitely worth watching and is still probably Tarentino's best piece of work to date.
“ Intriguing as all this might sound, one's mileage with the movie is almost certain to vary depending on one's tolerance of the dialogue-heavy script.
“ I highly recommend it.
“ But then from then on, I just got bored.
“ Story-telling has been unique and absorbing.
“ Still in his late twenties, Tarantino had directed a movie that was as smart as it was entertaining.
“ This is a cool, slick and compelling movie that did a lot with the resources they had.
“ I also give him points for the solid performances and the amusing scenes he's able to compose, but overall 'Reservoir Dogs' turns out to be a disjointed and ranting film that doesn't quite go anywhere, and isn't quite as intelligent as it seems.
“ My number 1 worst movie of all time.
“ One of the worst movies ever made .
“ All the principles are completely immersed in their roles, and give magnificent performances.
“ Two talking heads in a room can get pretty uninteresting after a while and this is what you get in some scenes.
“ If I had just watched this movie without knowing this piece of information, I would easily be able to recognize his signature style with the highly entertaining dialogue, and long conversations about pop culture throughout the movie.
“ It will keep everyone on the edge of their seats up until the very end of the film.
“ Pointless movie.
“ The final segment of the film makes it the most exciting climax since the shootout of the Wild Bunch.
“ I thought it was boring, rambling and way over rated - and I did watch it three times to see whether I'd missed something as everyone was raving about it.
“ very good, worth watching .
“ In the end, I just lumped it into the category of "no plot" and moved on.
“ However, before the hype and the greater success of Pulp Fiction (1994), it was simply a great film; one that presented a clever story, cinematic characters and an unconventional approach to on screen violence that reminded people that you could have more from cinema than a bland reproduction of a story.
“ If you see it you'll know what I mean, it's a stunning classic scene.
“ I love this movie, because it has got a hidden meaning deep under the very intensive pulse of this gangster-classic.
“ In fact, the mysteriousness makes it even more entertaining.
“ How could I remain on the edge of my seat with every word?
“ It just got too predictable for me.
“ If you are looking for a riveting tale of distrust and greed, watch this movie.
“ The same elements are in this film as well: intense violence, snappy dialogue, abrupt changes in time (forward and backward) as well as a memorable ensemble of characters.
“ One of the most boring movies I have watched .
“ Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs is a stunning debut film - one where the director is not ashamed to depict realistic dialog and violence.
“ It's very intriguing to watch all the characters development (and lack of) and see how everything all fits together in the end.
“ Despite the plot being superb, every word out of the character's mouths interesting and unusual, the casting brilliant, and the acting gripping and totally realistic, it is the camera angles and the music which really give Reservoir Dogs its atmosphere, which in this movie is everything.
“ It's a compelling story, and the unique way in which it is told heightens the drama.
“ Mr. Blonde a psychotic individual just released from prison (but very loyal to Joe), reveals his true self when he kidnaps and tortures a cop, his demeanor is very riveting and cunning in the sense of being one sick individual.
“ Intelligent, engaging, bold and invigorating; a great debut .
“ great acting, fine directing, exciting story and to concise, ranked among the top 100 best movies of IMDb.
“ He simply blows our mind with a totally unexpected script, characters, dialog and plot twists.
“ Tarantino succeeds at taking something so familiar and turning it on its head until it becomes new and exciting again.
“ The plot was difficult to follow and had minimal enjoyable moments.
“ A wonderful cast combined with a well told story that is gripping.
“ It is stylish and engaging.
“ A truly unique and engrossing film.
“The stunted, pointless dialog in the beginning of the movie made it pretentious.
“I cannot understand why so many people have taken such a liking to this film, when it is quite empty and shallow.
“ It was really low budget but get past that and its a very enjoyable ride.
“ It's mostly plain boring.
“ Tarantino's much deified dialogue is insultingly dull-witted -- banal pop references peppered generously with tiresome profanity.
“If you like action movies, heist movies, suspense movies of just want an entertaining film rent Reservoir Dogs.
“ At this point, the movie delivers 15 minutes of monotony and a pointless flashback to how Roth insinuated himself into the caper.
“ Quentin Tarantino's powerfully compelling heist movie is one that is both shockingly violence and compulsively funny.
“The acting is fantastic, the dialogue is inexplicably intriguing, the soundtrack is like no other and it oozes that lovable Tarantino style.
“ A violent, viscerally thrilling and ferociously entertaining decade defining masterwork .
“ The movie is so intense that you cannot help wondering what happened.
“ The confusion starts when the police arrive at the robbery location as soon as the alarm is tripped and now the question arises of which one of them is the undercover police officer.
“ Fascinating from the word go .
“ The Story is simple, but effectively entertaining.
“ The movie went backwards and at times was confusing.
“ Watching them try and figure out what had happened, when they probably didn't even know themselves, was very entertaining, and I don't mean in a ' OK, Mr.Blonde, kill that guy!
“ While some of the violence is quite brutal, there is precious little of it as the film mostly consists of the characters bantering back and forth, which unfortunately has a tendency to feel repetitive.
“ Mostly consisting of dialogue of pointless banter between the characters dragging out for uncomfortable amounts of time, the story had a weak plot and built up to nothing.
“ I highly recommend it!
“) Pro: Atmospheric and evocative soundtrack, especially the opening Ventures-like rockabilly song from the famous opening "walking scene".
“ This is one of those movies that are not at all complex, but are also exceedingly enjoyable.
“ Cool, Dope, Exciting, Excellent.
“ The story is boring.
“ Anyways, i enjoyed it....
“ And it was very predictable who the cop was.
“ For the first 50 minutes of the movie the viewer just sits through completely irrelevant and boring scenes, experiences next to no action and just gets bored, since nobody is presented with who is who in the first half of the film.
“ If you are deciding on if you should watch the movie of not based on the high reviews given, do not, you will be bored.
“ The only reason I rated this a 9 instead of 10 is because there are a couple of moments where the story gets a little dull (a couple of the characters' back stories were kinda 'eh...
“ Pure Garbage - don't waste your money .
“ Very entertaining crime film .
“ One of the ten worst movies ever .
“ It goes nowhere, it's incredibly boring and the best thing that can happen to you is that you pray it's over.
“ I will admit that I originally saw this movie hoping for it to be another 'Pulp Fiction', but discovered it to be a much more simple and enjoyable movie.
“Reservoir Dogs is still entertaining to this day.
“ Tarantino presents a gripping plot that is as real as it gets - this is not your typical Hollywood-ruined crime film.
“ What we received wasn't bad or lazy, I was just hoping for something more intriguing.
“ Having said that,this movie is absolutely riveting in it's movements from the ordinary, to the grim, to the horrific aspects of a career criminal.
“ So much of the film relies so heavily on the dialog and it's just riveting in the way it is presented.
“ There's a lot of blood, sudden outbursts, confrontations, disloyalty, unexpected fights and a lot of dark humor during this time.
“Each one of the characters are later re-introduced in a more detailed way, all well performed and engaging, except for Tarantino he is a bad actor.
“ While some of the scenes were intense, it is definitely not a feel good movie.
“ So naturally I find the whole mr. white-black-pink stuff uninteresting.
“ It's hard to believe this movie is now twenty years old, since it still seems as fresh and gripping as the day it was made.
“Whilst this movie won't be to everyone's taste, it's undoubtedly an excellently made, highly entertaining spectacle, and arguably one of Tarantino's best.
“ It's fast paced and has a lot of action to go along with.
“The camera work at the time was fresh and new – even if most of it was allegedly stolen from Asian filmmakers like John Woo – and the back and forth editing was a little disconcerting at first but undoubtedly exciting, far from the overdone device that it has since become, even by Mr Tarantino himself.
“So basically, this movie has very few flaws, and I recommend it to anybody who likes an enjoyable crime film.
“ It's hampered by a low-budget vibe, which I can handle, but not the uninteresting lowlife characters, their self-made conundrum, their interminably dull dialogue and the one-dimensional setting where about 80% of the story takes place in an old warehouse, not to mention no females in the main cast.
“ The acting in this is believable and good, the story is masterfully handled, its funny, its sad, its entertaining, and is easily the best heist movie, even though you never really see the heist (which could have made it alittle better, especially to see how crazy Blonde got, it could have helped the overall movie).
“ And the last twenty minutes of this film is one of the most absorbing twenty minutes in film history.
“ It has a disjointed feel to it and while I recognize the new things they're trying on a narrative level, it simply doesn't come together.
“ It's gripping stuff that could work just as well on the stage, always striking and never boring.
“ It is a violent, but very entertaining film.
“ Complete Waste Of Time ...
“ Since we don't get to see this diamond heist, the movie becomes more thrilling psychologically because the viewer is forced to imply much in his head.
“ His pan-around-the-table scenes where everyone is making a case for some silly argument, (whether it be foot rubbing or Madonna's 'Like a Virgin') that is supposed to have rich, deeper meaning, is just boring, dry and plain dumb.
“ I found it wonderful, entertaining and thought-provoking on the nature of good and evil, an instant classic.
“ Much like "Goodfellas," this film did not let me down, but I actually enjoyed it much more than I ever dreamed.
“ It was real, raw, and exciting.
“ The story is great, and told in a creative and intriguing way, first you see the crew relaxing, telling jokes, about to commit the job, then you see Mr Orange bloody in the back of a car, opening a whole chest of questions (soon to be answered), then you see Mr White and Mr Pink trying to figure out what went wrong, then you learn about the characters while slowing piecing together how the job got messed up, until finally the truth comes out, and the ends meet.
“ This repulsive, reprehensible trash for Quentin Tarantino has to rank as one of the worst movies ever made.
“ This movie is entertaining and brilliant even though it only has a simple concept that is a Robbery gone wrong with a Rat/Traitor in it.
“ The film though it is 25 years old still is as captivating, enjoyable and relabel as today, dispute the fact that many of it references in pop culture are now dated and forgotten.
“ Several scenes have a marked impact and really stand out, while others are far too drawn out and self interested, rather than being the brief, meaningful encounters they should have been.
“ Reservoir Dogs is an entertaining film and a promising debut by Tarantino, who has gone on to direct two more excellent movies: Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown.
“ Great movie with a lot of suspenseful drama .
“ Dumb and boring.
“ If he were a musician, he'd most probably be a hip-hop producer - someone like RZA or Danger Mouse - taking ideas and samples from a variety of different works and blending it all together to produce something new and exciting.
“ I thought it was so boring.
“ Quentin Taratino uses the warehouse, which is large, bland in color and empty, as the set that give us the feeling of a dark place where bad things are going to happen.
“ Hilarious Yet Entertaining.
“ The whole thing is grimly compelling; this odd assemblage of characters reveal little details about themselves throughout and often just get on each others' nerves.
“The movie literally consists of 70min of dialog about random boring **** with the occasional occurrence of some relatively entertaining segments.
“ Unfortunately, the editing gets dull after a while and just seems like an excuse to make this film longer.
“ Dont get me wrong I like his work but he was pretty boring in this film.
“" Don't let tall this get in the way of your opinion, because this movie was stupid and pointless.
“ The structure is very unorthodox and absorbing, while the predicament of the characters is conveyed with genuine excitement.
“ on the second viewing months later i enjoyed it, i had a bit of a hard time with the torture scene though, and i think the reason this movie was so popular was that it was made with no cgi or any fancy tricks, it was mostly just one guys idea or "vision" if you like, and i think people would like to think they could do something like that too.
“ An intriguing story of strangers .
“ It also allows for some entertaining dialogue: the conversation between Mr. White and Mr. Pink discussing the psychotic Mr. Blonde going trigger-happy at the bank.
“ The torture scene is filled with gore and is probably the most engaging scene in the film.
“ The camera moves about to keep the central set from being dull.
“ Timeless and Gripping .
“ The dialogs, the setting, the suspense, everything is very simple and yet very different in its way, as the film has a structure which is elementary yet intriguing.
“ Sometimes this hinders him (some think it dragged down the pace of "Kill Bill Volume 2", almost all agree that "Death Proof" was too dialog-heavy).
“ Many people say that the films were hard to follow.
“ And, as I said before, I must say, this movie was by far below par, and competes for my worst movie ever, compariing with "Spirit" (G movie) From Walt Disney.
“ It's consistently entertaining from beginning to end (for those who can stomach the violence) and bizarrely enthralling.
“ It's blunt, monotonous and quite uninteresting.
“ boring dogs .
“ For someone like me who's actually rather conservative, I find that anything Tarantino is involved with to be a unique and action packed joy ride.
“ Like the bulk of Tarantino's work, many criticize Dogs as being pointless, excessively violent, and filled with over-the-top obscenities.
“ But all in all very UN-entertaining.
“ Apart from that, the flashbacks also enable Tarantino to give this very thrilling film a lighter and funnier touch.
“ There is something compelling and original about all the violence and destruction in this film that separates it from other thrillers like it.
“ It must have been really exciting to see, in 1992, this new wonderful kind of filmmaking arise.
“ Like the best laid plans, the unexpected was not included and therefor becomes the focus of a violent shouting match with guns.
“ Far too self-indulgent .
“ The film for the most part keeps me interested with it's great pace and it's characters play with his dialogue, though Mr Orange's backstory did feel tiresome and did feel like walking through a mountain after the swift two thirds of the film.
“ It has dialog which is memorable and entertaining and it has scenes which are unforgettable.
“ Or at least, the few who enjoy excessive violence, which is what this movie is immersed in.
“This movie, marking one of the most receivable low-budget - realized with just 1.2 Million-Dollar production expenses - scenes of non-stop talking ultra-cleverly build characters, including Michael Madsen as Mr. Blonde, Tim Roth as Mr. Orange and a show-stealing Mr. Pink due to playing-defector actor Steve Buscemi, which performing beats could only be topped by a lucky striking appearance as Garland "The Marietta Mangler" Greene in the unlikely but major entertaining action-movie "Con Air" starring Nicolas Cage of Summer 1997, when Tarantino utilizes signature-defying explosions of violence in deep blood-reds on black suits and white shirts in a neutral-conflicting warehouse exploitation, when the plot constantly thickens in favors for twisting flashbacks and intermingling of narratives brought to a young director's perfection in "Palme d'Or" as Best Screenplay Academy-Awarded recognitions for improving successions with "Pulp Fiction" (1994) of a depth-reaching, substance-digging collector of national and world cinema.
“") The relationships forming between the six individuals, all of the complete strangers, make Reservoir Dogs a really fascinating watch.
“ This film completely dragged on, for it had a lame dialogue with no proper plot.
“ It manages to stay engrossing enough, though it's too bad about the longer moments that drown it, either from too much dialogue or Tarantino lingering on one shot for an entire seen like he revels in doing.
“ A total waste of time.
“ Some good moments, several boring and the movie is just trying to get to the goal, only to miss it.
“ Suspenseful and nail-biting action.
“ Though the script is unpleasant to listen to, you'll forget about it all by the middle, where the film takes it's real twists and gives real thrilling content.
“ Unlucky for them, they are set up and fall victim to a burst in on their robbery and all make like a banana and split for them all to return to an empty warehouse where they should all meet up if they got out in time to survive in a shootout with the police.
“ I admire it more than I enjoyed it, and I'm less attuned to his style of filmmaking now than I used to be.
“ the rest were either boring, or bad actors.
“ sure, there were some good classic lines in the movie, but over all it is a very dull and boring movie.
“ Moreso, with a lack of plot and dialogue - I mean good plot and good dialogue ofcourse - unique characters are a last option to save a movie.
“ A different perspective to a crime movie but boring.
“Along with bravely deciding to not show the heist itself,but to instead focus on the after effects of it,Tarantino superbly uses long, stylish gliding shots for the pre-warehouse scenes to initially show the tight "round table" bond that all of the gangsters have with each other,to slowly increasing the speed of the long shots,to create an intense,gritty atmosphere,as each gang member finds the union to have disintegrated,and only being left with the option to shoot their way out of a corner and into survival.
“ Roth is definitely the cream of the crop here - he's just stunning in this film, period.
“ Is it the iconic Stuck In The Middle scene, which is painful to watch but also entertaining?
“ David Mamet only wishes he could integrate speeches this snappy into his movie screenplays.
“ Arguably Quentin Tarantino had almost perfected his blend of long takes, irrelevant and referential dialog and group of entertaining characters by the time of his debut film.
“ Editing, screenplay and dialog's play the major part in this film, rather than an exciting storyline.
“ It has some originality and clever humor but all squished with a boring plot and uninteresting characters.
“ I never thought anything would ever come close to topping Pulp Fiction as my favorite Tarantino film, but Reservoir Dogs certainly makes a compelling argument for the top spot on that list.
“ Without question, Reservoir Dogs is a tense, coolly ironic thriller that not only subverts the usual codes and conventions you would expect to find in a heist thriller, but does so in such a way as to remain light, effortless and greatly entertaining.
“ The final scene- The Mexican Standoff is thrilling and kind of humorous at the same time.
“ His "Reservoir Dogs" is a fast paced movie with tension building up into every scene and then exploding at just the right moments.
“ Tarantino's movie is more enjoyable the more you see them.
“ Worth watching .
“ In all of his films, he would set up his characters in any scene (from a diner, to an empty warehouse), and then put them through a stick-up that goes disastrously wrong.
“ The dialogue may seem bizarre, considering that often the characters talk more about Pam Grier, tipping and Maddonna than anything else, but it is very clever and very quirky dialogue, which can often be very funny, and surprisingly, there are more laughs throughout the film (especially the opening scene) than you'd think, but the funny moments and the more suspenseful moments are balanced out perfectly, as each allows their own time to shine, and the film is smart enough to not veer too much into one genre or the other.
“ I thought it was very difficult to follow the story because of all of the flashbacks that were involved.
“ Between the brilliant scenes, the "guys are yelling at each other" routine tends to get a bit monotone.
“ Although it drags in places, the dialog and simplicity keep us hanging on long enough to make it to the thrilling conclusion.
“ Many people seem to like it and that's fine, go right ahead, but I found it to be fairly uninteresting and incomplete.
“ Michael Madsen is simply perfect as the creepy, quiet type (although quiet type in this context only means he pauses for breath between lines), giving off an intense presence while barely making a move.
“This movie opened my eyes to a whole world of action packed dramas just like this one.
“ This made the movie too boring.
“ Pointless bloodbaths, violence and annoying flashbacks detract from an otherwise interesting tale of deceit and mistrust.
“ First, there's the opening scene that introduces Tarantino's trademark of the camera hovering around the table while the immensely entertaining dialog is carried forward in all sorts of directions (there is a similarly brilliant conversation in a car later on).
“ This is not your kick back and relax type of movie, but more of a on the edge of seat waiting to see what happens next.
“To summarize the film in three words I'd say: bloody boring swearing.
“The movie is the very first movie that Quentin Tarantino directed,and like all his other movies to follow,it is incredibly violent,especially the scene when they're singing Stuck In The Middle With You while killing someone,its as entertaining,as it is disgusting and almost hard to look at.
“ This was possibly the most uninspiring 100 minutes of film I have sat through in recent history (Pulp Fiction being a close second).
“ Overall, Reservoir Dogs is not my favourite Tarantino film, but it is highly entertaining and well worth watching.
“ The cold, unpredictable nature of Mr. Blonde appears with the utmost effect in his performance.
“ The intense dialog, the scene setting and the crude violence at the warehouse allows the audience to better understand the characters position on the failed heist.
“ It is shocking, powerful, and very riveting with excellent acting, sharp dialouge, cool pop culture references.
“ But Tarantino threw out that logic just so he could make a "thrilling" scene as Mr. Blonde prepares to set fire to the police officer.
“ Plus the set got boring after a while, it was an abandoned warehouse after all.
“ Not on par with "Pulp Fiction", but still an enjoyable work from Tarantino.
“ It was certainly realistic, and the chopped, reverse chronology turned a nearly non-existent plot into a bit of a mystery.
“the way violence really is (there's something very wrong when violence becomes entertaining which this film does NOT do...
“ Only after each characters' plot is explained do we get the stunning and brilliant climax and conclusion which ranks as one of the all time greats.
“The script is very compelling and stylish.
“ Fast and fun the film is truly thrilling, set mostly in an isolated warehouse as the group attempt to uncover the truth whilst testing friendships and trust the style and focus upon mostly dialogue which is split by brief bursts of action it encapsulates the brilliance of the director and is worthy of the title 'classic'
“ The actings were relatively decent and this film is nowhere near one of the best films ever, although many people said it was, which lead me to buy the film on DVD, which I found a complete waste of money.
“ The whole film is very suspenseful and is very reminiscent of the classic noir films of the 40's and 50's, such as "D.
“ This scene sets the stage for a funny, macho movie that keeps the viewer on the edge of his seat until the time the credits roll.
“ A very good movie that I would recommend to everyone who likes weird and psychologically thrilling movies.
“ Though a bit on the violent side for some, I found Quentin Tarantino's first movie highly enjoyable.
“ With an open mind, this movie was found to be quite good, with some of the early dialog being boring and the few locations being too repetitive.
“ The movie uses a lot of excessively drawn-out conversations, it is not necessarily a bad thing, but here it didn't fit, since the screen time is so short, leading into a very boring plot and irrelevant actions.
“ Quentin Tarantino's explosive debut feature struck some as a pretentious, audacious, over-talkative and thoroughly objectionable piece of work that plagiarizes from every Hong Kong action movie, crime thriller and even a couple of slapstick comedies imaginable.
“ The warehouse scenes were too bland in setting as well as editing.
“ The violence and Action in the film is bloody and shocking and when the violence happens it is surprising and unexpected and when you watch RD you as the viewer feel like no one is safe from violence that's in the air.
“ This movie was a total waste of time.
“Although this fare is devoid of any profound message, morals or statement and there's no discernible kind of symbolism, it is extremely enjoyable on a basic level.
“ Harvey Keitel was the most enjoyable to watch, and finally we have a film with Tim Roth that I actually like.
“ Just remember the characters I told you about, and you'll enjoy this entertaining brilliant film.
“ I found the whole movie to be entertaining and I really recommend Reservoir Dogs to people that like to be entertained.
“ It is still the worst movie to take your date out, topping the list after American Psycho.
“The idea of characters being refereed to by colours is definitely a concept which I found particularly intriguing, especially as the people in charge of the operation revealed their own names to the team.
“It never fails in modern-day cinema, that whenever over-the-top gory, pointless violence is dressed up in hip clothing, and wrapped around so-called "cool" fast dialogue, that every Mutton-headed, knuckle scraping Baboon with an internet connection, a keyboard, and a desire to be as "hip" as the idiots they heap their praise on, will show up and make excuses for it.
“ On the surface, Reservoir Dogs is a stylized gangster movie, but underneath, it is an intriguing character study and a cynical commentary on human nature.
“ The atmosphere is solid and full of well acted malice and is pretty unpredictable.
“ Quinton Terantino's Reservoir Dogs is one of the most blood soaked, shockingly violent, and wildly entertaining movies I've ever seen.
“ This method ensures the narrative is full of surprises, and Tarantino astounds us with some wildly unexpected turns in his plot.
“"Reservoir Dogs" is self-indulgent, and too much so.
“Following the conversations and how the movie plays out is gripping.
“ Twelve Angry Men is an awesome film that does the opposite of this and uses pretty much one boring room as the entire setting.
“after 24 years of its release but found it equally fantastic and exciting today as well.....
“ The dialogue is so slow and redundant.
“The filming is riveting and the acting is better.
“ An example would be the moments in the office of the head honcho, which go on way too long.
“2/10 Good acting, very boring plot.
“ But of course, it was still interesting, entertaining and incredibly funny.
“ A brilliant, well written and entertaining character driven film about a group of burglars that know each other only by the nicknames given to them by their employer.
“ Also, the unexpected ending, I doubt people were accustomed to see that much blood in Hollywood flicks, maybe not since the 70's exploitations.
“ The storyline is unpredictable and thrilling.
“ Some have complained that the violence in "Reservoir Dogs" is basically too intense and gruesome without a good reason for its necessity.

“ Intelligent, interesting, intriguing.
“ Whether it's Tim Roth losing several pints of blood or Micheal Madsen amputating a cop's ear in a torture session to the tune of 'Stuck in the middle with you' ( a powerful juxtaposition of a feel-good music with stomach-churning knife work) .

“ Quentin Tarantino is one of the greatest directors of the last few decades, he seamlessly blends dialogue with brutal violence in his films which are always compelling and extremely entertaining, while is do not think this is his best film Reservoir Dogs is a fantastic opening to his filmography.
“ The use of long takes instead of cutting all the time made the movie pretty atmospheric and engaging.
“ A clever, mind bending story, compelling characters, and even an exceptional soundtrack.
“Tarantino gets things off to a spectacularly engrossing start, as Reservoir Dogs begins with the iconic sequence involving the coffee- shop banter of six morally ambiguous outlaws.

“ Not to mention the way the story is told, it's just very intriguing from the start.
“ How exciting can a film be when most of the scenes take place at a drab warehouse?
