Cleverly reviving blacksploitation superstar, Pam Grier, and familiar gritty copster, Robert Forster, along with contemporary actors Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda, Chris Tucker, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson is a stroke of Quentin Tarantino genius. And the execution is equally as kick *ss too.
Case in point: Tarantino brings the most out of Samuel. It was obvious in Pulp Fiction but here in the far lesser-known Jackie Brown he still shines on with bravado. Watch the movie and also pick up the sound track (also something Quentin seems to kill at) to hear one of the best scenes and deliveries in movie history... Samuel's "Beaumont-classic-case-of-him-or-me speech." Unbelievable.
Sure... there are drugs, double-crosses, handguns, bongs and a stand-up dog-style 30-second quickie kitchen sex scene in broad daylight -- just a few of the Tarantino touches audiences come to know and expect. Bridget is my kinda lady... half-baked and fully-baked at the same time. This is my kinda movie... sucka.
