Reservoir Dogs is a great movie and in my top ten!
Reservoir Dogs is a great film with an excellent cast, focused almost entirely on dialogue alone. You somehow feel like you just watched an action movie, but you don't actually see the action. It is either implied or discussed. Even the most graphic scene of the movie is not shown, however, most viewers think they saw it (if you've seen this film, you not only know what scene I'm referring to, but you also now have the song in your head). I highly recommend this film to viewers who want an interesting story, and don't mind a little blood and profanity.

A Diamond heist gone bad ! Outstanding debut film!
Tarantino's debut movie is cult viewing. The film benefits from a quality cast of actors with Harvey Keitel & Steve Buscemi being particularly impressive as Mr White & Mr Pink. The script is witty and engaging throughout. I'd never previously seen such a seemingly disjointed movie come together so perfectly as in Reservoir Dogs. I especially enjoyed the way the resevoir dogs turn on each other in order to try and uncover who the "rat" is after their failed diamond heist. Furthermore, the use of colour code names and cool suits & shades is another inspired choice by Tarantino. The film is both violent,coarse and darkly humourous - a perfect mix. The movie soundtrack is also particularly impressive. The highlight would have to be Mr Blonde dancing to the ditty of "Stuck in the middle with you", prior to engaging in ritual torture. This is of course the movie's most controversial episode with Michael Madsen hacking off the cop's ear, humiliating him and threatening to set him alight. A big fuss over nothing was made over this and its release on video was delayed as a result. They only succeeded in further enhancing the film's appeal. If your yet to see this film then you're in for a treat, I remember emerging from the cinema on pure adrenaline. The dvd special features cupboard is worryingly bare. Why only a trailer and Tarantino intro for such a very special movie? I can't let that trivial detail detract from this film's excellence - maximum marks for this masterpiece.Read full review

One of Quentins first and best.
At the time of it's release, there was no other movie and no other director that pushed as many boundaries as much as Quentin Tarantino's master piece Reservoir dogs. Reservoir dogs may also arguably be one of the best movies ever made, the storyline is superb, the acting is excellent and the cast are nearly irreplaceable. I must say that this movie isn't for the squeamish though, this is probably one of the most violent movies ever made, but don't be fooled, this is also one of the most clever movies ever made!!!. 5/5, definitely buy it!

The film that launched the career of a master filmmaker
"Reservoir Dogs" is Quentin Tarantino's first official film (he'd been making student films & shorts for a while before it was released). It was screened at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival to amazing critical acclaim, and it's an undeniable fact that it launched Tarantino's brilliant career in filmmaking. Harvey Keitel, otherwise known as Mr. White, may be largely attributed for the making of this movie - he read Tarantino's screenplay, through Lawrence Bender (producer), and absolutely loved it. That marks the birth of "Reservoir Dogs."
Nothing can be said about this spectacular film that hasn't been said already. The ensemble cast is magnificent, with Keitel, Michael Madsen, and Steve Buscemi giving especially remarkable performances. Tarantino as the hilarious Mr. Brown is an absolute delight to watch. Tarantino's writing and directing are, as usual, ridiculously superb. The movie itself is hysterical, tragic, insightful, suspenseful, mysterious, provocative. In simpler words, it's a classic.
If you have yet to watch this breakthrough whirlwind of a movie, you will not regret your purchase. If you're simply buying it because you've already fallen in love with it, then you know how it feels, and you won't hesitate for a minute.
Recommended for all movie buffs anywhere and everywhere. A masterpiece!Read full review
