Product Description

A sexy flight attendant (Pam Grier) is caught in a plot between the police and an arms dealer, and everyone’s looking for the payoff.  There are six unlikely players on the trail for a big score – a half million dollars in cash.  But alliances are shaky when it’s unclear who is playing and who is getting played.

An all-star cast joins Grier and Forster, including Samuel L. Jackson, Robert DeNiro, Michael Keaton and Bridget Fonda in Tarantino’s adaptation of the novel by Elmore Leonard (3:10 to Yuma, Out of Sight).


With over three hours of brilliant Blu-ray extras, including:
  • "A Look Back at Jackie Brown"
  • An Interview with Tarantino himself
  • Behind-the-Scenes interviews with the cast including;
  • Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster, Robert De Niro and Michael Keaton
  • Critics piece assessing Jackie Brown’s reception at release to current-day
  • Chicks with Guns Video
  • Theatrical Trailers

From Amazon.co.uk

The curiosity of Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown is Robert Forster's worldly wise bail bondsman Max Cherry, the most alive character in this adaptation of Elmore Leonard's Rum Punch. The Academy Awards saw it the same way, giving Forster the film's only nomination. The film is more "rum" than "punch" and will certainly disappoint those who are looking for Tarantino's trademark style. This movie is a slow, decaffeinated story of six characters glued to a half million dollars brought illegally into the country. The money belongs to Ordell (Samuel L Jackson), a gunrunner just bright enough to control his universe and do his own dirty work. His just-paroled friend--a loose term with Ordell--Louis (Robert De Niro) is just taking up space and could be interested in the money. However, his loyalties are in question between his old partner and Ordell's doped-up girl (Bridget Fonda). Certainly Fed Ray Nicolette (Michael Keaton) wants to arrest Ordell with the illegal money. The key is the title character, a late-40-ish flight-attendant (Pam Grier) who can pull her own weight and soon has both sides believing she's working for them. The end result is rarely in doubt, and what is left is two hours of Tarantino's expert dialogue as he moves his characters around town.

Tarantino changed the race of Jackie and Ordell, a move that means little except that it allows Tarantino to heap on black culture and language, something he has a gift and passion for. He said this film is for an older audience although the language and drug use may put them off. The film is not a salute to Grier's blaxploitation films beyond the musical score. Unexpectedly the most fascinating scenes are between Grier and Forster: glowing in the limelight of their first major Hollywood film after decades of work. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarantino Masterpiece 3 Jan 2004
By Mr. Damian J. McGrath VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Like him or not, Quentin Tarantino keeps making masterpieces. Kill Bill may have recieved poor ratings, but its still an excellently made film, and an artistic masterpiece. Pulp Fiction, possibly his most famous creation, was another cinematic landmark, with the originally hard to follow flashbacks and stories within stories. Reservoir Dogs was a masterpiece for the sheer cheek to produce a film set mainly in a warehouse, and featuring 70s cheerful music to acts of horrific violence and bloody scenes.
Then you have Jackie Brown. A forgotten gem in the Tarantino Collection, this film is my personal favourite. Its not as violent as his others, but the storyline is excellent.
Basically, the film is about Ordell (played by Samuel L Jackson) trying to smuggle half a million dollar into America from Mexico, using his friend, air stewardess Jackie Brown. Ordell is played to perfection by Jackson, and the character really comes alive, thanks to his paranoid nature, including shooting his friend for getting arrested because he thinks investigations could bring up his name.
The smuggling plot falls apart when Jackie Brown is arrested smuggling in a tester amount of £50,000 and fears for her life after Ordell visits her apartment, gun in hand, but after a while, she convinces him on her loyalty, and the plan continues, but where do Jackie's loyalities really lie, and who will survive in this tense, yet compelling tale.
The film is 2 and a half hours long, and I really couldnt turn away, and that is something I dont say about a lot of films. I simple love Samuel L Jackson's acting ability, and this is potentially his finest performance.
In short, excellent film, another true masterpiece, and probably the only Tarantino film that doesnt need 2 or 3 watches to understand and appreciate it. Ironically, you'll appreciate it so much, you'll watch it 2 or 3 times because its so damn good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarentino's Most Underrated Movie 17 Mar 2006
By Charlie
Format:DVD
This is Quentin Tarentino's most underrated movie and probably the best.
I saw this in the cinema when it first came out and came out thinking it was brilliant. What makes this movie work so well is it's chilled out vibe. This is conveyed through the excellent sound track, derived from the blaxploitation movies of the 70s. I would say that this is the best soundtrack used yet in one of Quentins movies.
The film runs at a slow pace which can put off some viewers, but I found that there was enough going on in the plot to keep me watching. It may not have the same level of violence as most Tarentino movies, but the characters are deep and develop well over the 2.5 hours.
The dialogue, as can be expected by a Tarrentino movie is brilliant. It is rare to have a director with such talent that can make a hollywood movie, but have the ability to create this "Art House" vibe and make a movie that is different from the mainstream. Jackie Brown is the height of Tarrentinos movie making talent and I would recommed this to anyone who has a sense of style and taste, who isn't afraid of going against the flow.

This will be compared to Dogs and Pulp Fiction which is a shame. It is an excellent tale in it's own right. There are similar themes such as strong dialogue and flash back sequences, but this film should be viewed on it's own merits.
The only disappointment for the DVD is the lack of features - I think the studio must have rushed it out as quickly as possible. This is no special edition box set cram full of behind the scenes footage. It noticable for it's complete lack of features.
It is also a two sided disk - always a let down having to drag yourselve out of the armchair mid-movie.
Good picture and sound though (music being a key element in any Tarantino movie)

4.0 out of 5 stars Under rated when compared to Pulp Fiction 2 May 2007
By Jay
Format:DVD
Being a huge fan of Tarantinos earlier efforts Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction expectations were of course high. Especially since Jackie Brown is based on the Elmore Leonard novel "Rum Punch". And Elmore Leonards stories usually fit the big screen very well, they are actually one of the rare occasions where i usually prefer the film to the novel.

Tarantino sets a different mood here compared to the more frantic and violent Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. This is more of a slow crime story that focuses more on being cool than being shocking. I think this movie works very well despite the slow pace which seems to put a lot of people off. Mainly i think it works because the actors are all giving it their best (the casting is also excellent) while Tarantino seems to handle the whole story more gently than in Pulp Fiction. He doesn't stress it, he doesn't run the risk of over-doing the "cool" parts. The end result is enjoyable but a lot more somber than what you're used to from Tarantino.

All in all i feel this movie is underrated. It's enjoyable, well made and stylish. Recommended to those not demanding all movies to head on at breakneck speed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Film Noir Was Never So Hip! 1 July 2002
Format:DVD
Elmore Leonard's excellent novel, "Rum Punch" makes it to the screen in a sizzling black caper movie by Quinten Tarantino.
Many considered this a cinematic failure when released in 1997, however there is enough plot twists and turns and good characterisations by a splendid cast to good most people amused.
Tarantino's homage to Black movies of the 70's included a great sans towards the violence he had otherwise become known for with pictures like "Resovoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction".
Instead here, he concentrates on the intricacies of the plot by airline stewardess and bag woman Jackie (played by Blaxploitation heroine, Pam Greer), to swindle her hoodlum boss Samuel L.Jackson, himself in excellant form, from virtually all his misbegotten earnings, whiich he needs moved up from Mexico.
Style is as much a feature of this film as well as acting skill and a good script. Flashbacks, inter-twining sub-plots and a whole lot of 70's soul music all add up to make this picture a worthy addition to any collection.London, Uk
