Goofs

Red has several tattoos, eerily similar to those visible on Zed, Eric Stoltz's character from 1993's Killing Zoe. However, Red's version of the tattoo for the band "Black Flag" is incorrectly displayed as a row of 4 black rectangles all straight across in an even row. The band's actual logo, correctly shown in 1993, has the rectangles in a staggered format. See more »

Some people aren't getting it
13 October 2019 | by dtnmusicSee all my reviews

This was a fun movie and the acting was great. Yes, there was some weird unnecessary attachment to pulp fiction (25 years later!) but I'm pretty sure that was intentional. I can tell Roger Avary was almost doing an homage to Pulp Fiction and it didn't weaken the film for me. Crispin Glover was awesome, the actor that played Red was solid, the female lead was great too. The over-the-top bits were perfectly executed, finding the balance between absurd and comical while keeping the story flowing. I didn't know what to expect going into this, but I left the theatre wanting to see it again. It packed a lot of action and great acting into a film that was probably 10 mil budget (low in this day and age.)
