THE HATEFUL EIGHT (2015)
A film by Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh
In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner with two other shady character that he picked up along the way find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of miscreant characters.
Yes an other Tarantino film and a western, but this on is a whodunit western. He kept true to the genre and a new cool dusty score from Ennio Morricone. The film is broken up into five chapters, led by a musical overture and split by an intermission old school-style, but there film takes a while to really kick in. In the film there is quite a bunch of shady characters “The Hangman” John Ruth (Kurt Russell, perfectly suited for the role as the grizzly bear type and the criminal he intends to see hanged, Daisy Dormegue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) she is all fangs and vicious as hell. But first before they go the their destination they are hold up by two characters that he picks up along the way.The first one is white-hunting former Union soldier Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), who carries around a note written to him by President Abraham Lincoln (I love that one). The second is Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), the supposed new Sheriff of Red Rock, which happens to be where Daisy is meant to meet to be hang . Coincidence? Yeah right! You know better than that. As they have to stop to this cabin because of the blizzard is greeted by a Mexican Bob The Mexican (Demian Bichir), who tells them the owners are out of town; Inside the cabin are Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock; the silent and secretive cowboy Joe Gage (Michael Madsen); and the racist Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). You right there and then you are in for some serious dialogue and bloody carnage.
Tarantino builds up the tension slowly at first then you will get a punch in the gut as the story goes along. A great ensemble cast that delivers a kick ass dialogue. The level of details is this film is amazing down right scary. There is comedy, blood, gun fight, fighting , slapstick shock ,and tense as well just like those Spaghetti western and yes Quentin does stylize his film. That is all folks I will say no more than rush to the theater to see this one.
