The Hateful Eight Review: A slow burning thriller in classic Tarantino fashion.

Tarantino’s eighth feature film chronicles eight strangers who get trapped in a cabin during a blizzard and in a fashion all too common to him, shit goes down.

The massive three hour film has the daunting task of trying to keep the viewer entertained and also making sure the plot doesn’t become redundant. The film has a slow burning first act, but once the plot catches flame, it really proves it’s might.

The film may not be go down as one of his best works, but it won’t go down as one of his worst. Samuel L. Jackson and Jennifer Jason Leigh deliver excellent performances while everyone else gets lost in the framework.

The dialogue tends to lean more on the obscene side with Tarantino’s use of the n-word being very evident, the plot is laid out in a nice and entertaining format that makes keeps you interested throughout the entire three hour endeavor.

While this film might not be the most rewatchable film, it’s undeniably a great film to watch.
