In 1992, Reservoir Dogs transformed Quentin Tarantino practically overnight from an obscure, unproduced screenwriter and part-time actor to the most influential new filmmaker of the 1990s. The story looks at what happens before and after (but not during) a botched jewelry store robbery organized by Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney). Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) is a career criminal who takes a liking to newcomer Mr. Orange (Tim Roth) and enjoys showing him the ropes. Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) is a weaselly loner obsessed with professionalism. Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) has just gotten out of jail after taking the rap on a job for Cabot; he's grateful for the work but isn't the same person he used to be. While Mr. Blonde goes nuts during the heist, the thieves are surprised by the sudden arrival of the police, and Mr. Pink is convinced one of their team is a cop. So who's the rat? What do they do about Mr. Blonde? And what do they do with Mr. Orange, who took a bullet in the gut and is slowly bleeding to death? Reservoir Dogs jumps back and forth between pre- and post-robbery events, occasionally putting the narrative on pause to let the characters discuss such topics as the relative importance of tipping, who starred in Get Christie Love!, and what to do when you enter a men's room full of cops carrying a briefcase full of marijuana.

the pic of the dvd is NOT at all what i received....its your basic dvd ....NOT at all for the colector!!
worst heist movie ever
this was a really suspenseful but cool movie at the same time and a hard to watch scene where it reminded me of the film Sweeney Todd and once you watch it i bet you'll might think the same thing. this is the story of strangers and friends and the thought that one of them is an undercover cop. surprised this was tarantino's debut. he is quite the director and loved kill bill volume 1. after watching it i was like damn.
This movie is a movie that people say they liked to show that they have taste. It was pointless, overly-bloody, suburban in its infatuation with gangsters and gore. It was a dress rehearsal for Pulp Fiction.
Reservoir Dogs is a good action movie with a few minor flaws. Dogs isn't as captivating as Pulp Fiction or Kill Bill, and doesn't have the sparks like Jackie Brown. However, Reservoir Dogs has many tense scenes and Harvey Keitel and Tim Roth both give exceptional performances. If you are a Quentin Tarantino fan, watch and enjoy this motion picture.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Last night was the first time i saw this movie, and i regret never seeing it before then. This is the second Tarentino movie ive seen(after Pulp Fiction)and it just furthered my beleif that Tarentino is the greatest film maker alive. Plus i love the colors.
One of my favorite movies of all time, and has an amazing cast and director. Steve Buscemi was my personal favorite in this robbery, action, mystery flick. Should be viewed by all who can stand some violence. Quentin did a grreat job of making this movie, and has an intresting way of showing it. The seens are all out of chronological order, and the actual robbery is never shown, yet the movie is better this way. A little bit of this style is shown in another Quentin movie, Pulp Fiction, Which is another fave of mine.
Reservoir dogs and taxidriver is the two most wonderful movies.Reservoir dogs is so good it makes you wanna look at it all day long. Quentin tarantino is the absolutly best director in the world.That's my point of view.Quentin tarantino is also the man who started the cinema of cool. This movie contains everything:Great dialog,good actors and the screenplay is amazing....see this movie!
I love this Film so much that I have to watch it at least once a month if that. This film has great acting, a tarantino masterpeice. It cant be much better. Very bloody movie great action. A man made movie. One of the Best Hiest films I have seen. Great way to show how a plan that seem like its all gonna work but a theres a rat in the house. It has great dialog. if you havent seen this well watch it A.S.A.P. One of the best Tarantino film
I thought this was a great movie. It always kept me interested and entertained. The actors were also phenomenal. Watch this movie!!!
I remember seeing this movie when it first became available on VHS. The DVD is just as filling. Though I am not a fan of the Kill Bill movies, I adored Pulp Fiction.....as well as Jackie Brown to a point. Reservoir Dogs planted Tarantino's foot in the door and I would like to see him make more American crime movies instead of crazy off the wall stuff.
This is one of the best heist films ever! Tarantino is a genius. Great story, great acting, cool blood, and awesome ending.
Michael Madsen is brilliant in this movie, especially in the infamous torture scene of the movie. One of Quentin Tarantino's best films, on par with the 'Kill Bill' series.
this movie is so damn great. it has one of my favorit endings in a movie. great dialogue and story about paranoia and a heist gone wrong.
Paranoia is what this film is about. Who is the snitch, who can be trusted with all this cash? And a whole lot of killing is the result. Maybe Tarantino's best film or the best heist film of the 90's.
With a cast of Steve Buscemi, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Tim Roth, Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Tierney, who could ask for more? 29 year old Quentin Tarantino made his director and writer debut with this classic film. It's a classic film of a jewel heist gone wrong and a wonderful case of who-done-it. I recommend that after you've seen this movie, watch it again and look for signs of who the 'rat' is. With the DVD, you can listen to commentary and interviews by critics and actors as well as recorded performance of Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi playing Mr. White and Mr. Pink in someone's house. This movie is great and with Quentin's dialogue, it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
this movie is awsome. it keeps you wondering for a long time. it's very funny. has great lines. the acting was awsome. quentin tarantino has a great mind to think of movies like this and pulp fiction.
