Customer Review

This is a well acted convoluted tale of multiple deceptions, written and directed by Quintin Tarantino. Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is an air hostess who acts as a cash courier between Mexico and the U.S. for gun runner Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson). Another of Robbie's couriers, Beaumont Livingstone (Chris Tucker) has been arrested so Robbie arranges bail for Livingstone from bail bondsman Max Cherry (Robert Forster), picks him up from jail, and shoots him to prevent him from cutting a deal with the police for reduced jail-time. ATF agent Ray Nicolet (Michael Keaton) and LAPD Detective Mark Dargus (Michael Bowen) are hot on Robbie's trail after Livingstone has already traded information for his freedom. They intercept Brown as she returns to the USA with Robbie's money, but as she is also carrying drugs, they arrest her. Fearing that Brown is now going to give information to the police, Robbie goes to bail bondsman Cherry again. So begins an elaborate series of stings and counter-stings, details of which would spoil the enjoyment of the movie. In the process, an associate of Robbie's, Louis Gara (Robert De Niro), and Robbie's girlfriend, Melanie Ralston (Bridget Fonda) are killed. There's plenty of action in the movie but you have to concentrate to follow the plot!
