***Creative Western whodunit is an amusing black comedy, but also profane and repugnant***
RELEASED IN 2015 and directed by Quentin Tarantino, “The Hateful Eight” is a Western about a cruel bounty hunter (Kurt Russell) taking an outlaw woman (Jennifer Jason Leigh) in to Red Rock, Wyoming, to hang. Along with a black bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson) and the new Sheriff of Red Rock (Walton Goggins), they hold up at a rural haberdashery during a blizzard with several dubious characters (Tim Roth, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern and Channing Tatum). Dana Gourrier and Zoe Bell appear in small roles.
This was Tarantino’s second Western in a row after 2012’s “Django Unchained,” which ranks with the best Westerns of all time. This one’s not as good, but it certainly has its points of interest, like the great wintery wilderness atmosphere, which is to die for. Moreover, the plot is intriguing. It’s basically an Agatha Christie whodunit a la Murder on the Orient Express transferred to the Old West. Roughly 90% of the film takes place in the haberdashery and, less so, a stagecoach. It’s basically a theater play masquerading as a movie and I found it a unique setting for a Western.
The movie starts out with spectacular Colorado winter cinematography highlighted by an excellent Ennio Morricone score, his first full-length score in over three decades (!). Compelling extended dialogues have always been Tarantino’s strong suit; and so it is here. The amusing melodramatics are entertaining and the story keeps your interest despite the one-dimensional setting. Everything’s SO exaggerated that you can’t take it seriously. The movie’s intentionally offensive and you have to roll WITH the excesses to be entertained; otherwise you’ll hate it.
On at least one occasion the overindulgences don’t work, like the disgusting fellatio sequence. I get that Marquis (Jackson) was lying to the other guy to compel him to draw, but we didn’t need a visual on his fabricated story. It’s sordid excess that has no place in a Western or any other movie, except gay porn, but Tarantino obviously included it in order to be “edgy” or whatever.
The excellent opening with the figure of Christ dying for our sins keys off the theme, which is humanity’s fallen condition and dire need of redemption. The title, “The Hateful Eight,” is a perversion of “The Magnificent Seven.” The latter celebrates the noble and heroic whereas this movie parodies the base and odious. Tarantino is poking fun at our petty hostilities that separate us based on race, gender, sectionalism, faction-ism, envy and rivalry. Furthermore, men divided by hatred of culture and race can unite in hatred of something else, in this case misogyny.
THE FILM RUNS 2 hours, 47 minutes.
> …And then there were none.
I’m neither Tarantino nor Nolan’s fan, but love watching their movies. As usual these director’s films are highly expected by all, that’s including me. This one started off quite like a normal western, so I thought it wouldn’t be like the director’s previous film ‘Django Unchained’. In fact, it was considered for a sequel to that, but the director felt this story and the previous character Django failed to blend, hence ‘The Hateful Eight’ was born with Samuel L. Jackson playing an important role.
Solid eight from me for this QT’s eighth film. But I felt the movie was kind of inspired by ‘And Then There Were None’. It was not about to find who’s the killer or next to be killed. The character introductions were at its best and an excellent twist in the middle. This sets in a cabin with eight strangers struck there after the snowstorm. But after an unexpected event the suspicious started to mount and brings chaos. Then takes us to the flashback to reveal something the story that did not mention in the earlier part which’s very essential for coming back to the finale.
The 80% of the movie was just talking, but the remaining stunt sequences were so powerful. All the eight, plus, supporting character were exceptional, but the director’s favourite Samuel L. Jackson nailed it as his character is a bit above from the rest. The entire film was shot is a couple of locations, but the major portion takes place in a cabin and it was a limited cast movie. These days, western movies are shrinking, only a very-very few good movies are made every year. In the time of superheroes, a movie like this is really very precious, so definitely recommend it.
A stage play of a “Who-Done-It” murder mystery – with highly political undercurrents
OK – if you’ve already seen the movie and hated it, my review won’t change your mind, so move along folks, move along, there’s nothing to see for you here, thanks.
Now for you, dear film fan, who is about to watch ‘The Hateful Eight’, but who is now slightly worried because of some very mixed critical reactions – for YOU I’m writing this 100% spoiler-free review.
Judging from many comments here on IMDb and other forums, I gather that many long-time Tarantino fans apparently don’t like his newest film. I had feared such a reaction as soon as I had finished watching the movie. It’s obviously Tarantino’s least accessible effort yet, and there’s a number of reasons for that, not the least of which being that this is simply not the film most people expected (or felt they were promised). So if you haven’t seen it yet and you’re a bit doubtful because of the negative reviews, let me tell you: you’ll likely end up loving it – as I did – IF you prepare yourself juuuust a little. And because I really liked the movie, I would like to help you do that via a short list of recommendations. Ready? Here it goes:
1. Don’t go watch ‘The Hateful Eight’ expecting a “classic” Western. It might belong to the Western genre, but if all that talk about Ultra 70mm Panavision had you thinking of lush outdoor scenery, vast landscapes or anything resembling a Sergio Leone movie, you’ll end up disappointed. There are a few nice shots showing snowy mountains, but 95% (perhaps more) of the story unfolds indoors (in one single room) – which isn’t to say that the cinematography isn’t absolutely fantastic. In fact, it’s more than fantastic: it’s stunning and worthy of an Oscar.
2. Don’t expect any exciting “action” scenes (for lack of a better word: I don’t mean the ‘Fast & Furious’ kind of action scenes) every 10 minutes or so; in fact, don’t expect anything other to happen between the characters than dialog for a loooooong time. Unlike in Tarantino’s previous films where we got almost “spoiled” by unexpected over-the-top moments in nearly every scene (except maybe for ‘Jackie Brown’ and ‘Deathprooof’), this film has a very, very slow build. But: that’s not to say it ISN’T exciting (or that nothing does happen) – it’s just that the excitement and tension result mainly from the dialog and the excellent performances by the cast (at least for roughly two thirds of the movie).
3. Best approach this film as you would theater; for that’s what ‘The Hateful Eight’ really is: a stage play disguised as a movie. A stage play of a “Who-Done-It” murder mystery with a touch of Agatha Christie. But then again, that’s also a disguise, for the murder mystery is just a ploy to cast a look at a torn society rife with racial tension after the civil war. Which, of course, again serves as an allegory for race relations in modern-day America and as the director’s angry commentary on how hateful that situation still is today, on all sides. Now that sounds awfully serious, but don’t worry; despite some hard-to-stomach ugliness and the highly political undercurrent, there is plenty of Tarantino’s trademark humor throughout the whole film.
4. Don’t expect to find a likable character you can root for. There’s a reason for the film’s title, and unlike in all his previous films, there is not a single person in Tarantino’s latest movie you’ll feel any real sympathy for. All the main characters have committed despicable, hateful acts, and they’re all beyond redemption – but that doesn’t mean they’re not compelling to watch (especially given THIS cast: everyone is fantastic, but Jackson, Russell, Jason Leigh and Goggins are just a joy to watch).
5. Don’t expect a complex plot. In my opinion, among Q.T’s films this is the one with the most straight forward and most simple plot to date, yet at the same time it’s arguably his most complex – and most ambitious – film.
So, dear film fan, that’s it: adhere to these here 5 “commandments”, and there’s a big chance you’ll end up loving Mr. Banana Chin’s latest oeuvre as much as I did (mind; you might love the film just as much without taking any of the above advice). I admit, it took me a while to get into this dialog-heavy stage play and would-be Western, but once I did, I never looked back (and I can hardly wait to watch it again). 9 stars out of 10.

WHEN YOU GET CAUGHT BY THE HANGMAN, YOU HANG!!
The film started off slowly building the background story and slowly introducing us to the characters such as Major Marquis Warren played brilliantly by Samuel L Jackson and I feel brilliantly undersells it because that may have rivalled Pulp Fiction’s Jules when it comes to characters. Warren comes across a stagecoach driven by O.B. (James Parks) inside of which had Kurt Russell’s John Ruth who was another massively important character who like Warren is a bounty hunter and next to him was his bounty Daisy Domergue who was brilliantly portrayed by Jennifer Jason Leigh. Little while down the road we come across the future Red Rock sheriff Maddix (Walter Goggins). All 5 continue riding sharing some typical Tarantino witty dialogue that I am always engaged by. We then meet up with the rest of the characters important to the story at Millie’s Haberdashery. Oswaldo Mobray probably my second favourite character played by Tim Roth, Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), Bob the Mexican (Damien Bashir) and General Smithers (Bruce Dern). After several scenes of getting to know the characters with alot more typical Tarantino dialogue characters start getting killed in one way or another. It is brutal at times where some say the violence is over the top but if you’ve seen a Tarantino flick before you should know what to expect. It goes from a western to a who done it kind of story and this is where Samuel L Jackson stole the show, it was truly are marvel watching his performance on screen. We do come across some other characters who are important to the end story but its better to watch it to fully grasp the gravity of the ending.
Technically its very hard to rank any of QT movies because they’re all of a ridiculously high standard but I rate this very high. In production the script got leaked and we were nearly robbed of this being made at all. Thankfully QT calmed down and made the film. Shot in 70mm it gave it the old school feel of movie making which was so cool, writing was so on point and the casting was perfect to show QT vision on the screen. The score was hugely important too and the fact QT finally got to work with the legend that is Ennio Morricone was a fantastic gift.
I write reviews for fun and usually just a few lines to convey my thoughts but I go into greater depth for things I get great enjoyment out of and great directors like Quentin Tarantino warrent my time
The films an under appreciated masterpiece and at 168 minutes never feels too long and worth holding up next to the likes of Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained, happy viewing
