“The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.”
The highly stylized and sometimes controversial movie, “Pulp Fiction” hits the nail on what makes a movie a movie. Engaging from start to finish with a narrative that doesn’t follow the norm, Pulp Fiction tells the tale of a not so likely group of people from two hit men, to a box, some bandits and a gangster’s wife and how they all end up being in each others life.
The cast is a phenominial set, with legends like Bruce Willis, John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson and many more. Each of the actors put in there own little touches to each of the characters making them feel unique and real (well at least as realistic as you can expect from Taratino films). The character development is also good in this film as well, with the story itself following a different timeline in terms of continuity, yet the characters seem to progress themselves giving reasons on why some of them act in certain ways.
The story itself is pretty gritty and comical (in a good way) at the same time. You have your suspense scenes when you really have no idea what’s going to happen next and you also have your funny bible quoting scenes with Mr.Samuel himself, which has me rolling on the floor with laughter every time I hear it. The story itself may seem a little butchy at first, with all of the different characters, time line not being in order, and other scenes all being combined, but don’t worry, by the end it should all make sense. (If not, re-watch and it should!)
Overall, another great film from Tarantino. If you’re a fan of gritty comedy drama suspense noirs, then this movie will hit the nail on all of them. Awesome cast and cool story, 5 out of 5, must watch!
