1992 M Contains graphic violence and offensive language.

Five Total Strangers Team Up For The Perfect Crime. They Don't Know Each Other's Name. But They've Got Each Other's Number.

Four perfect killers. One perfect crime. Now all they have to fear is each other.

Former video store clerk Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut, RESERVOIR DOGS, is a brutally funny, supercharged introduction to his supremely distinct cinematic vision, which was later to become one of the most mimicked styles of the 1990s.

Mastermind Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney) assembles a crew of top-notch criminals to pull off a jewellery store heist. As the film opens it becomes immediately clear that the plan backfired, forcing the survivors, who have gathered at an abandoned warehouse, to figure out if one of them is, in fact, a police informer. The crew - Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), an aged veteran; Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), a wounded newcomer; Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), a psychopathic parolee; Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi), a bickering weasel; and Nice Guy Eddie (Chris Penn), Joe's son - begin to unravel as the pressure becomes too much for them to handle. When Joe arrives, the truth becomes clear in a vicious Mexican stand-off.

Totally incredible on every level. The best heist movie ever made..and they don't even show the heist!!! Only someone as clever as Tarantino could do that.

Very much a Quentin Tarantino movie. Quite slow at the start and almost gave up but worth it in the end.

Lot of blood.Reminded me of a old school gangsta flick gone wrong.Could have done with some female characters.Still enjoyed it.

I hadn't seen this movie for a long time. It was great watching the ensemble cast go for it! Great story, classic ending - all totally over the top! Great escapism even if it is violent!

A Tarantino classic most notable for its brilliant wordy dialogue delivered by some top notch actors. This is a crime movie that famously omits the crime itself and instead follows the crime as they... Read more

Dogs is QT's stylish, unmuzzled, off-lead romp through white-trash male identity. And it¿s simply a great and perversely funny, very violent, heist movie. Either way it has very sharp teeth, so be... Read more

I might be very strange after reading the other reviews, well the majority anyway, I thought give it a try, what a waste of time, it was terrible I watched half hour then decided I could'not stand anymore.

One of my favourite movies, even though I know the outcome for this movie the clever script and awesome acting of the cast is great to watch. Love the backdrop of the 70's music genre too.

What a waste of time. I expected a lot better being a Tarantino film.

Normally I find his films very clever and well constructed but this was just a bloodbath that led to nothing.

Very violent... Read more
