Tarantino’s newest film is not for the faint-hearted, a bloody bonanza of racial tension, dark humour and Samuel L. Jackson: what’s not to love? The three hour masterpiece has been criticised by many who have obviously never seen a Tarantino film for excessive violence but for those of us who know and love the over-the-top director, The Hateful Eight was a triumph.
Many of the cast are recognisable from previous Tarantino films such as Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs. Fan favourite Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t disappoint with an entertaining yet intriguing performance and the lesser known but entertainingly named Walton Goggins exceeded all expectations. After a less than memorable performance in Django Unchained Goggins redeemed himself and more, his likable performance and hilarity took the spotlight even from Jackson in some scenes, something many of us would have thought impossible.
The Hateful Eight was definitely worth the trip to the cinema and it is still showing in Norwich so get to it! The film has managed to earn its place as my second favourite Tarantino film (after Django) despite what the critics say.
This is the film for you if you’re a fan of hilarious, somewhat bloody, action and as an additional perk Channing Tatum makes an appearance!
