January 1, 2000
Scene by scene, Jackie Brown is amusing, but after two hours, it seems sluggish, and at that point still has a half-hour to go.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

As an exercise in style, Jackie Brown is a refinement of the innovative elements Tarantino employed in the Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.

January 1, 2000
For all its enthusiasm, this film isn't sharp enough to afford all the time it wastes on small talk, long drives, trips to the mall and favorite songs played on car radios.

The flat, self-exposing dud that fate often keeps in store for the initially overpraised.

[Tarantino] wanted to give Grier a role worthy of her, and he has. If only he'd given her a movie worthy of her as well.
January 1, 2000
[A] surprisingly sluggish Tarantino piece.

The movie takes 150 minutes to tell what should have been a 90-minute story.

February 14, 2001
A leisurely and easygoing diversion that goes down easy enough but is far from compelling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 7, 2004
Working from an Elmore Leonard novel, Tarantino has created a gangster fiction that is never larger than life and sometimes smaller.
April 27, 2018
Surprisingly, Tarantino displays less confidence assembling it than he did in the earlier film. At more than two hours, it's simply too long, or at least it seems so.

We need more referents like her. Superheroine, superwoman. Thus spoke Zarathustra; This is how Nietzsche described it. [Full review in Spanish]

It's not quite Pulp Fiction, but Jackie Brown is a hip tour de force of Tarantino's criminal universe.

Pam Grier is at her best recapturing the type of role that made her a bonafide star in '70s blaxploitation movies like Foxy Brown...

This is the movie that proves Tarantino is the real thing, and not just a two-film wonder boy.

[Quentin] Tarantino knows his way around a script, but this is something special that goes beyond witty dialogue.
