this disc is sensational is an absurd understatement and the fact that it's
only just become available on DVD is amazing considering that this film
created it's own pseudo genre within the crime genre.
those who might not have been of a movie going age when this film was
originally released or have never seen the video, Reservoir Dogs is the story
about a diamond robbery that we never see, committed by men who have no names
only colours as a way of distinguishing themselves.
Director Quentin Tarantino took the bold step with this movie of introducing
us to the non linear progression of a movie, possibly the tightest dialogue to
have been written for a movie in years and a film with one of the most
ordinary locations ever. a barebones small warehouse.
there are four primary players in this movie played by Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel,
Steve Buscemi and Michael Madsen, every cast member is memorable due to the
unique way that Tarantino worked them into the plot. This is one of those
movies where practically every line in it counts and is worth the inclusion in
extras on this film are worth the price of the movie even without the movie.
It staggers me that Magna Pacific are practically giving this movie away plus
the extras! There are numerous interviews with critics and stars. I found it
intriguing especially to listen to the Tarantino interview and what makes him
tick. I have a lot of respect for this filmmaker and it was a brief education
to have a look inside his head explaining the process in making the movie.
visuals for the movie is an absolute feast for the eyes and is practically
unblemished other than extremely slight artefacts occurring occasionally in
the actors black suits. This was rare and certainly did not detract even
slightly from the film It's the sort of picky crap that we do have to report
on however and I refuse to mark the score down as a result.
audio is fantastic as well and considering that the majority of the film takes
place in a warehouse, uses Dolby Digital really well and during the movie when
Mr. Pink has to fight off the police, and taking cover from a carjacked
vehicle, fires a burst of rounds at chasing cops and the sound of it will have
Reservoir Dogs is a must have movie. It's drama with an extreme amount of
black humour thrown in for good measure. It won't appeal to everyone, however
no one can dispute the majesty of the film itself and the way that Tarantino
changed the way that the movie industry looked at itself.
