An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since there was a nice cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. On top of that, since I really loved ‘Jackie Brown’,  it was pretty neat to see again Ordell and Louis. Unfortunately, the whole thing didn’t really work for me. The first thing that bothered was that, even though Mos Def and John Hawkes were not bad, they played these 2 characters completey different than Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro did in ‘Jackie Brown’.  In this case, what was the point of bringing these characters in this case? Indeed, they might just as well give them some different names. Concerning Melanie, it was even more confusing. Was it the same real girl? How come she was about the same age as she was in ‘Jackie Brown’ then? Still, even if you would manage to forget that ‘Jackie Brown’ even existed, the story was decent but not really amazing. Indeed, it felt like a rather weak version of ‘Fargo’ and the ending barely made sense whatsoever. Anyway, to conclude, even though the damned thing really had some potential, it was rather disappointing but I still think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
