The Hateful Eight Summary
Bounty hunters seek shelter from a raging blizzard and get caught up in a plot of betrayal and deception.
A deeply conflicting version of fun.
Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is a lot of things. Boring, of course, isn't one of them.
This is Tarantino. And it's very entertaining, even when it's entertainingly vile, which happens a lot in this overlong movie's extended third act.
The film is pointless, even as entertainment, because it builds to nothing more than a comic book blood bath.
What was it about this cramped, underdeveloped parlor drama -- the majority of which takes place on one set -- that caused Tarantino to think 70mm?
