Hardly any plot or story-line but they weren't lying when it says graphic violence and sexual language. This movie is mostly violence but it is fairly well acted as you can imagine with the big name cast. I can't say I would be in a hurry to see it, but it's worth a look if you like blood & guts!

this movie is the worst I have seen. No plot, just a lot of murder and swearing and blood. Some families walked out out of the thearter during the movie. Would not recommend it for anyone else to waste their money on it

"The Hateful Eight" is wild and bloody There,, I said it very bloody and very gory. I'm usually against movies like that, but if you're going to make a very violent movie, you got to have something to back that up. Otherwise you going to sit though a empty movie with nothing to offer but blood and gore.Director Quentin Taratino who wrote and directed this movie, which makes it his best work since "Pulp Fiction" The film is divided into six chapters and it tells about a bloody night inside a place called Minnie's Habeudashery, where a resides bounty hunter, killers and a woman who is the center of all the madness. Of the cast which includes Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell,Michael Madsen (I had to mention him because he was at the Alamo Drafthouse in Kalamazoo to help open the movie theatre. Even dedicated one of the 10 screen movie theatres after him) My favorite cast member form the movie is Jennifer Jason Leigh. her performance has given life to a bloody movie. I don't usually say that in my reviews, but I'm in love with the actress. Watching her act gives me plenty of joy. .

Adds new meaning to anything for a buck, and that's what this cast did.

I came into this movie with fairly high expectations, and in all honesty, I was disappointed. This is not at all to say that the Hateful Eight is a bad movie, because it's not. Like many of Tarantino's films, The Hateful Eight is split into different sections, or "Chapters." I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 or 4 chapters of this film. These first bits were very entertaining because of things that an audience has come to expect from a Western film directed by Quentin Tarantino: great dialogue, charismatic characters, good performances by actors (Kurt Russel worth a mention at this point in time), Samuel L. Jackson's profanity. The cinematography was quite impressive for all of the movie. These things made the first few chapters entertaining.
Where this movie fell short for me was after those chapters. Obviously, there were large amounts of violence and gore, but it didn't seem to be for a purpose. In other Tarantino films like Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained, and Pulp Fiction, the violence is purposeful. It drives the story and the relationships woven between characters. This is the opposite for The Hateful Eight. In the last stages of the movie, the performances stopped being entertaining and just became poor satires of themselves. The ending was just unsatisfying. The last 2 or 3 chapters of this movie just stopped being fun.
