by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : B+

“..the film does stumble in its final showdown, failing to find closure beyond its most basic motives..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..the film achieves that QT hypnotic mood. But only for a while. In the gaudy-bloody last 30 minutes (think over-the-top and beyond), the mood vanishes..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..Tarantino injects the weighty material with so many jocular, startling and unexpected touches that it's constantly stimulating..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..seriously entertaining and seriously thoughtful..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..plenty of big movie moments and several instances of loopy brilliance, but it's also a rehash of "Inglourious Basterds" with slavery substituting for Nazism..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..nor are there as many good oddball characters..”
by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader]
3.5 of 4

“..it twists and turns over an unbridled two hours and 45 minutes, giving history (and your stamina) a serious pounding..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..he connective tissue is less convincing, and at two hours and 45 minutes, the film feels ponderous, and the sporadic bratty humour is not enough to leaven the mix..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..gorgeously lit and lensed by Robert Richardson against authentic American landscapes..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
