Patricia Arquette was the lead actress in this film, but receives no credit here.

Such a great film! It has one of the greatest casts ever assembled. I can't help, but feel it would have been even better in Tarantino's hands though.

It's good. I loved all the small roles from like Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Gary Oldman and Brad Pitt.

Extremely overrated. Such a great cast and most of them were wasted. Quite literally. Obviously to try to draw more people to see the film. Arquette was great. Never was a fan of Slater. Horrible direction. I cannot believe Hans Zimmer scored this movie. Take a shot every time that grating, simplistic song plays during the movie.

A mixed-bag of a film. It's got a great cast and some great cinematography, but a lot of the script's subtle nuances and themes are lost amidst Scott's overblown, style over substance direction. Contrary to what many believe, Tarantino's films are actually very much rooted in morality. His characters always live or die based on the moral choices they make. Which makes it all the more jarring for me to see his script turned here into this empty, superficial movie that glorifies crime (a big no-no in Tarantino's scripts, usually). When I found out the ending was changed at the request of Tony Scott, it all made sense. The man does not understand Tarantino.

Finally saw this after trying to for YEARS! I over hyped it, it's very straight forward for being written by Tarantino. Slater has never been a good actor IMO, but he's okay in this. THe crazy twists and extreme bad/good dumb luck are missing from the typical Tarantino formula. A great finale with a few scenes that weren't necessary. A stellar cast that was like 70% wasted or killed off way to fast.
