Product Description

Quentin Tarantino directs this twisting homage to the black action movies of the 1970s. Air stewardess Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) also smuggles money on the side for gunrunner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson). When she is caught with $50,000 and a consignment of cocaine, she makes a deal with Ordell: if convicted, she will not shop him as long as he pays her $100,000. Meanwhile Jackie also makes a deal with the cops, promising to help convict Ordell, and enlists the help of bail bond man Max Cherry (Oscar-nominated Robert Forster) in a daring attempt to outwit both the police and Ordell.

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 film is more "rum" than "punch", though, with 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 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 Federal Agent 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.

Tarantino changed the race of Jackie and Ordell, a move that means little except that it allows him to heap on black culture and language, something he has a gift and passion for, though the film is not a salute to Grier's blaxploitation films beyond the soundtrack. 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

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.

This film may not be his most famous or the biggest box office success but to me this is his best film. Absolutely love each charachter which are played amazingly well, especially Pam Grier and Robert Forster. It also has a really good soundtrack that goes well with the film. The one disappointing thing is there is no audio commentary by Tarantino himself who always gives a great insight into his films, but I wouldn`t mark it down for that.

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)

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.

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
