Editor's Note
Quentin Tarantino returns to the crime genre once again with this adaptation of Elmore Leonard's RUM PUNCH. Transplanting Leonard's crime story from Miami to Tarantino's city of choice, Los Angeles, JACKIE BROWN cruises along smoothly, much like the film's 1970s soul soundtrack. The film follows Jackie Brown (Pam Grier), a flight attendant who makes extra cash by running drugs and cash for sleazebag Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson). When Jackie sees the opportunity to make off with a large chunk of change, she begins to play everyone around her, including two detectives who are threatening her with jail time if she doesn't rat out Ordell, and a sympathetic bail bondsman (Robert Forster) who finds himself falling for Jackie.

Tarantino sets a pace that is laid back and groovy, building to an eventual climax that determines whether or not Jackie walks away with the booty. In much the same way that Tarantino resuscitated John Travolta's career with PULP FICTION, he does the same thing here with Grier and Forster. Overall, JACKIE BROWN is a less in-your-face effort than Tarantino's previous films, but it's this downshift in gears that makes it so refreshing.

Expert Review Jackie Brown - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Josh Lasser Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 10/3/2011 1:04 PM
Perhaps I am being foolish, but Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown makes me sad.  I think that Jackie Brown is a well constructed, well scripted film.  I might actually classify it as a great movie, but it still makes me sad.  As much fun as his previous efforts, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, are, I think that Jackie Brown shows off Tarantino's skills as a writer and as a director in far more grand fashion....read the full review

Plot Summary
When she's not stowing carry-ons, 40-something flight attendant Jackie Brown runs soiled cash and other sundries for L.A. lowlife Ordell Robbie, an all-purpose bad guy scheming with a dull-witted prison buddy to pull off their biggest run yet. But trouble arises in the form of gung-ho lawmen who want Ms. Brown to rat out her boss, lest they send her up the river. With the help of a beleaguered bail bondsman with the hots for her, Jackie plays both sides in hopes of snagging the haul--a cool half-million--for herself. Quentin Tarantino applies his characteristic loquacity and fondness for 1970s cheese to RUM PUNCH, Elmore Leonard's spare, Miami-set crime suspense story.

"Half a million dollars will always be missed."----Max Cherry (Robert Forster) to Jackie Brown (Pam Grier)
