The movie is a western, a tale of vengeance and double-dealing set in a frontier outpost some time after the Civil War. In spite of the vast screen, the sprawling length and the larger-than-life genre archetypes, it's a curiously small-scale entertainment. The final scenes wrap up this shaggy-dog story with a nasty punch line, delivering on the promise of the film's title. I won't spoil it. See for yourself.

Tarantino has created another breathtakingly stylish and clever film, a Jacobean western, intimate yet somehow weirdly colossal, once again releasing his own kind of unwholesome crazy-funny-violent nitrous oxide into the cinema auditorium for us all to inhale. There is a horrible kind of black-comic heroism in continuing to threaten and crack wise while being in the same kind of unbearable agony you are planning to inflict on someone else. "Thriller" is a generic label which has lost its force. But The Hateful Eight thrills.

A closed space, a set of violent brutal men and loads of ammunition can only mean one thing- and that's a shootout or several of them. Given Tarantino's preference for gut-curdling violence in stylized form, there's no guessing wrong about which way this could go. While the technique is painstaking and old fashioned , the telling of it is postmodern and visually exciting.

As the plot drags on, sometimes propelled by a Tarantino monologue and the smart use of rewinds and flash forwards, you realise that this elaborate set-up towards an ending isn't all that convincing. though the film is described as a mystery, there is little of that. The violence is the most disappointing, whether directed at the film's only woman protagonist or not. Never one to shy away from blood and gore, Tarantino knows the value of it as a catharsis, making you revel in it sometimes against your better judgment.

The Hateful Eight finally arrives after the sandstorm over a leaked script, police outrage and Tarantino's insistence to go 70mm film over digital. The final results are interesting - this is the most polarising Tarantino film since Jackie Brown. What is most interesting about The Hateful Eight, however, is that it doesn't rely too hard on plotting - nothing much happens in the film for a really long time, but when something does happen it feels like a punch to the gut. The violence in this case feels earned, instead of being used for shock value.

The Hateful Eight is never as inventive as some of Tarantino's previous films. It's also his slowest. It's no epic in the end, but it's still pretty good fun. 'The eighth film by Quentin Tarantino', as it's billed, feels like a return to the very first. Fans will be happy to know that The Hateful Eight doesn't skimp on such Tarantino staples as gratuitous violence and liberal swearing.

Even if you think The Hateful Eight is something swung at and missed, you never doubt the cunning and commitment of the wiz behind the curtain. Watch out for Tarantino's seething subtext in The Hateful Eight - it'll nag at your conscience and no way will it let go.

Dialogue propel Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight,''. Like them, Quentin Tarantino finds a way to make the delivery amusing. Stupendous performance from Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson makes a deep western film.

"The Hateful Eight" is a wild ride, with one crazy scene at the heart of it that will truly give you a bong in the mind. With a mild loud Violence & Gore, it feels like something you've never seen before.
