Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Quentin Tarantino came out of nowhere (i.e., a video store in Manhattan Beach, California) and turned Hollywood on its ear in 1992 with his explosive first feature, Reservoir Dogs. Like Tarantino's mainstream breakthrough Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs has an unconventional structure, cleverly shuffling back and forth in time to reveal details about the characters, experienced criminals who know next to nothing about each other. Joe (Lawrence Tierney) has assembled them to pull off a simple heist, and has gruffly assigned them color-coded aliases (Mr. Orange, Mr. Pink, Mr. White) to conceal their identities from being known even to each other.

But something has gone wrong, and the plan has blown up in their faces. One by one, the surviving robbers find their way back to their prearranged warehouse hideout. There, they try to piece together the chronology of this bloody fiasco--and to identify the traitor among them who tipped off the police. Pressure mounts, blood flows, accusations and bullets fly. In the combustible atmosphere these men are forced to confront life-and-death questions of trust, loyalty, professionalism, deception, and betrayal. As many critics have observed, it is a movie about "honor among thieves" (just as Pulp Fiction is about redemption, and Jackie Brown is about survival).

Along with everything else, the movie provides a showcase for a terrific ensemble of actors: Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Christopher Penn, and Tarantino himself, offering a fervent dissection of Madonna's "Like a Virgin" over breakfast. Reservoir Dogs is violent (though the violence is implied rather than explicit), clever, gabby, harrowing, funny, suspenseful, and even--in the end--unexpectedly moving. (Don't forget that "Super Sounds of the Seventies" soundtrack, either.) Reservoir Dogs deserves just as much acclaim and attention as its follow-up, Pulp Fiction, would receive two years later. --Jim Emerson

Reservoir Dogs 4k

Not buying this awful uk release as I now have the usa release, thankfully a lot cheaper than this and has a much better pic on the cover, plus not in a "shinney box" that all the idiots like to buy. Brilliant film in dolby vision which looks superb. I have ordered the uk Pulp Fiction 4k, but not the shinney version..... Well worth the upgrade from blu ray.

Wow

Lions gate nailed another steelbook design once again!! Looking forward to watching the 4K.

Disappointment

Ordered this and expected this to be real life dogs, it’s been 3 days and nothing barked yet. I have even named them and no one responds to me. The nights do get lonely sometimes, especially sunday night.

Let's Go To Work!

Digging the cover and the sleeve with the detachable ear lol. Chuffed Marvin got himself on the cover the poor guy had it rough with Mr Blonde 🦻

Disappointed ☹️

I’m gutted that the artwork is so awful. I wish it was at least like the one that was sent in the email. Unfortunately I won’t be buying this version.
