Movie Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes®
 

This movie gets its charge not from action pyrotechnics but from its electric barrage of language, wisecracks and dialogue, from the mordant '70s classicism of its long-take camera style and its smart, offbeat, strangely sexy cast.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, 2013-05-15

 

The talk is dirty and funny, the violence always waiting just around the corner.

Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 2013-05-15

 

Whether you call it razzmatazz, pizazz or sizzle, Pulp Fiction's got it, enough style for a dozen movies and, truth be told, enough story for five.

Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2013-05-15

 

At 153 minutes, the movie does occasionally flirt with tedium, but the risk is worth it: The whole is finally greater than the sum of its pulpy parts. What could have been an anything-goes pastiche has surprising rigor and narrative clarity.

John Hartl, Seattle Times, 2013-05-15

 

In terms of mood and style, it could be the most influential film to come along since Blue Velvet.

Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, 2013-05-15

 

If you smile at David Mamet's dialogue, you'll laugh out loud at the words of Quentin Tarantino.

Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, 2013-01-16

 

Tarantino's dialogue, with its densely propulsive, almost lawyerly fervor, its peppery comic blend of literacy and funk, has more snap and fight than most directors' action scenes.

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 2011-09-07

 

Tarantino's guilty secret, which the international critics should have noticed, is that his films are cultural hybrids.

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2011-03-29

 

Just when you thought the last thing the world needed was another violent, self-conscious, hipster homage to film noir, along comes Tarantino to blow away your deja vu.

David Ansen, Newsweek, 2010-07-06

 

A spectacularly entertaining piece of pop culture.

Todd McCarthy, Variety, 2007-03-13

 

The overall project is evident: to evict real life and real people from the art film and replace them with generic teases and assorted hommages. Don't expect any of the life experiences of the old movie sources to leak through.

Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, 2007-03-13

 

It's the way Tarantino embellishes and, finally, interlinks these old chestnuts that makes the film alternately exhilarating and frustrating.

Geoff Andrew, Time Out, 2006-06-24

 

A triumphant, cleverly disorienting journey through a demimonde that springs entirely from Mr. Tarantino's ripe imagination, a landscape of danger, shock, hilarity and vibrant local color.

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 2003-05-20

 

Scintillating.

Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, 2002-04-12

 

There's a special kick that comes from watching something this thrillingly alive.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2001-05-12

 

All the details are executed to perfection. Ironies abound in the smallest situations.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2000-01-01

 

The movie resurrects not only an aging genre but also a few careers.

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, 2000-01-01

 

Writer/director Quentin Tarantino demonstrates his encyclopedic grasp of filmmaking by bending, chopping and deconstructing narrative while keeping a groovy beat.

Lucy Mohl, Film.com, 2000-01-01

 

The result, especially in the scenes involving Bruce Willis as a nervy boxer, can be long patches of dialogue that must have tickled Tarantino but will not necessarily resonate for anyone else.

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 2013-05-15

 

The way that this picture has been so widely ravened up and drooled over verges on the disgusting. Pulp Fiction nourishes, abets, cultural slumming.

Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, 2009-05-27
