More Info:
  • Brian Truitt

    While not as cinematically game-changing as Pulp Fiction or as gore-spattered as the Kill Bill films, The Hateful Eight doles out all of Tarantino’s favorite things.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    Tarantino is a masterful storyteller, painter of cinematic images and director of actors; the script, the cinematography and the cast of outlandish characters, created by a powerful ensemble dashingly led by Jackson, can’t be faulted in any way.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This is a high-wire thriller, full of masterfully executed twists, captivating dialogue, and a wildly entertaining narrative that gallops along at a pace to make three hours evaporate in an instant. Best film of the year? Yes.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    While it’s not as audacious or as provocative or as brutally violent as “Django Unchained,” it’s still an exhilarating moviegoing experience, filled with wickedly dark humor, nomination-worthy performances and a jigsaw puzzle plot that keeps us guessing until the bloody, brilliant end.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Beautifully photographed to take full advantage of the corners of a 2:76:1 aspect ratio, often hiding key character details in the background of shots in a way that demands a second viewing, this is a gorgeous piece of filmcraft all the way around.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    The Hateful Eight is a parlour-room epic, an entire nation in a single room, a film steeped in its own filminess but at the same time vital, riveting and real.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    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.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    This is the writer-director’s take on the betrayed promise of America: a perverse vision of sadistic men comforted by false causes.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The film's chatty, ingratiating, and then howlingly mean.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Those willing to put in the time will find a movie that is both beautiful and hideous, funny and shocking, and even thoughtful on occasion.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The movie absolutely delivers on the sheer moment-to-moment pleasures fans have come to expect, from dynamite dialogue to powder-keg confrontations.

    Variety Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Working from a self-penned screenplay, Tarantino has come up with one of the wordiest Westerns on record, and even some of his most diehard fans may grimace at the film’s occasionally slow pace. But The Hateful Eight more than compensates through its intriguing characters, ominous atmosphere and palpable suspense.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    But Tarantino isn’t glorifying the ugliness; he’s condemning it. He just wants to put on a grand show at the same time. “Are you not entertained?” he seems to be asking. Yes. Yes, we are.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    At three hours, this Western whodunit can feel like too much of a good thing. But Tarantino writes like a flamethrower. His incendiary dialogue feels like profane poetry. And the dude thinks big.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Justin Gerber

    There are a couple hiccups that prevent the movie from elevating to the classic status of your Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fictions.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    On a par with "Inglourious Basterds" and "Django Unchained," The Hateful Eight starts low-key but ultimately delivers big, bold, blood-soaked rewards. Roll on, QT Western number three.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jamie Graham

    The Hateful Eight brands the western with a big ‘QT’. All you’d expect from a Tarantino movie and more besides. Saddle up.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    My personal view is that Quentin Tarantino is now permanently high on his own supply, but you could just as well say that he has succeeded in reinventing the art film. Is it worth it to put yourself through the brutal and incoherent three-hour ordeal of The Hateful Eight for its moments of brilliance and its ultimate catharsis? Jesus, don’t look at me. Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    A highly enjoyable -- and, for better or for worse, a very Tarantino -- movie.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    It’s as pure an expression of Tarantino’s voice as he’s ever mustered—easy to savor, even if the aftertaste leaves a trace of nasty bitterness.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    The Hateful Eight’s impact expands and grows richer the further away you are from the experience of watching it.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    There is absolutely no doubt about who wrote the elaborate, pungent, profane and often funny dialogue that a fine cast chews over and spits out with evident glee, nor as to who staged the ongoing bloodbath that becomes a gusher in the final stretch.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Overall, it’s a satisfying wintry treat, as only Quentin Tarantino can do it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Even if you don’t get the references, you can enjoy the ripely robust acting – especially Russell, Jackson and Leigh – and Tarantino’s storytelling skill. I could have done without the bad-boy excesses, which always seem like the mark of his immaturity, but the rest of the film comes from a mature and capable artist.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    This is a movie that’s 168 minutes only because Quentin Tarantino is an uncontainable Rabelasian. He believes that more is more. And sometimes it is. But a truly great craftsman knows where to locate the line.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Needless to say, if “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” were too much for you, The Hateful Eight won’t be any easier. This is a big step beyond.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The Hateful Eight is a feature-length battle between thoughtful sophistication and the filmmaker's sloppiest and most self-indulgent instincts.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Jaime N. Christley

    The premise of the film is simple, but it's a simplicity that can only attract complications, as simple plans are apt to do, in an atmosphere of foreboding and the macabre.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    No matter how absorbing its individual scenes, however, The Hateful Eight is often hindered by Tarantino's confidence in the material. For every gripping sequence, there's an abrupt development or undercooked throwaway line.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The Hateful Eight may frustrate some of his more literally sanguine supporters, but it’s nonetheless an entertaining piece of dialogue-driven theater — with the occasional rifle-shot to the head.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Tarantino seems to have no shortage of creativity or inspiration. What he needs to find is someone who isn’t afraid to occasionally say, “Cut.”

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Dziemianowicz

    Weird, wild and way-too-long.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    It’s arguably Tarantino’s ugliest and most political film, but not his best by some distance.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Stretched to three hours, including a pointless (old fashioned) overture and intermission, does it live up to the “Cinema Event” Tarantino has hyped it as? Hell no. It’s just a minimalist Spaghetti Western suffering from auteur bloat — sometimes entertaining, with not even remotely enough story of action to support its insuperable length and gravitas.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    The Hateful Eight is easily Tarantino's most fantastic film in terms of its visuals, its period detail and its award-worthy score, but it suffers from the director's common pitfalls while lacking the verve that so often carries him through.

    CineVue Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Maybe I’m repeating myself: The Hateful Eight is a Quentin Tarantino movie. But Mr. Tarantino is also repeating himself, spinning his wheels here in a way he has rarely done before. None of his other films venture so far into tedium or manage to get in their own way so frequently.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It’s fun for a while to see Kurt Russell hamming it up behind his voluminous mustache or Samuel L. Jackson once again raising rafters by laying down the law. But the film is pointless, even as entertainment, because it builds to nothing more than a comic book blood bath.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The Hateful Eight doesn’t have enough ideas. Set almost entirely in a snowed-in saloon, the story’s so spare it doesn’t warrant either its three-hour running time (including an overture and intermission) or his use of 70mm projection. It’s narratively and visually claustrophobic.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    By the end of The Hateful Eight, its status as a tale of mystery and its deference to classic Westerns have all but disappeared, worn down by the grind of its sadistic vision. That is the Tarantino deal: by blowing out folks’ brains, he wants to blow our minds.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    Yep, we’re in Tarantino territory for sure: way too self-indulgently long, and way, way overboard with that N-word.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    This time the talk was cheap, not witty or sharp. Tarantino the writer let his gift of gab get away from him and didn't give his script a close enough edit. Tarantino the director didn't do enough with the static setting; the flashbacks don't help and the big timeshift that's meant to explain everything that's happened feels incomplete.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The Hateful Eight is an ultrawide bore.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    An impressive display of film craft and a profoundly ugly movie—so gleeful in its violence and so nihilistic in its world view that it feels as though the director is daring his detractors to see it as a confirmation of their worst fears about his art. Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    An epic work of self-indulgence and smug riffing, stringing together tropes from TV and screen westerns and closed-room whodunits, The Hateful Eight announces itself with all the pomp and circumstance of a mid-century cinema spectacle.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The Hateful Eight is bold, gorgeous, verbally clever, morally repellent, and, in some way I am still struggling to put my finger on, possibly somehow evil. Any movie that inspires mixed feelings that intense can, I suppose, be said to have done its work on the viewer. But I’m not sure the work The Hateful Eight performed on me was what the filmmaker intended or that it’s an operation I would consent to again.

    Slate Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Its glorious, snow-capped visuals aside, The Hateful Eight comes off as haggard and atrophied. It’s bloodless even in the midst of all its bloodiness; its characters are devoid of nobility, even the horrible kind. These are uglies not even a mother could love.

    Time Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The Hateful Eight never lives up to its intriguing opening minutes and provocative premise, its wide-screen canvas wasted on a talky, claustrophobic chamber piece that descends, in due Tarantino fashion, into a mean-spirited slough of bloodshed and mayhem.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    You wonder what he has up his sleeve in The Hateful Eight, but gorgeous as that sleeve might be, what’s up it is crap. The movie is a lot of gore over a lot of nothing. I hope that won’t be Tarantino’s epitaph.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is vile art, bludgeoning viewers for three hours with indefensibly gratuitous race baiting and blood.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    The Hateful Eight is basically an expensive vanity project allowing Tarantino to expound on his bizarre theories about race relations.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The Hateful Eight wears out its welcome well before the halfway point, leaving the equivalent of a whole other movie to sit — and suffer — through.
