Reservoir Dogs movie review

Reservoir Dogs Poster
Genre: Crime, Thriller

Rated: R - strong violence and language

Release Date: 1992

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Summary: Six criminals, who are strangers to each other, are hired by a crime boss, Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney), to carry out a heist that has gone terribly wrong. Leaving everyone scatter. 
Review: The film opens up with five men sitting at restaurant, talking and joke. Given the impression that know each other well. Then cut to title scene and the next scene begins in the middle of the action. There a nonlinear story line, as the film progresses pieces of the story is put together of what happen. The emotion and relationship shown between each character is great.

This is the first Tarantino film I have seen. Going in I didn't know there was going to be a high among of violence and gore.

Now that I see this film, I can example in detail the different it will make if the language and violence was clean up. My take is if their no strong language, there will not be a strong impact when there violence. The characters will also be flat. The opening scene show them all siting around a table at a dinner, casually talking. With the language their using, you can tell their comfortable towards each other.

btw the last paragraph was based on a question I had on a test.
