Western with Tarantino's signature!

Eight strangers who seek refuge from a blizzard in a stagecoach stopover some time after the American Civil War.

The film offers another good work from Quentin Tarantino and his signature blend of action, over-the-top violence and humor. So if you like that you will probably enjoy it, otherwise you'll seat quite a long time on your butt. The movie is almost like murder mystery board game Cluedo but more political and western themed. Dialogues are long, shoots, the acting and cinematography are great. Things get interesting step by step but there is something missing when hell breaks loose. A point or a better ending would be nice. And there is nothing very original despite on point elements. Worth a look but not a masterpiece. 4-/5
