The Hateful Eight | Ratings & Reviews

"As great as Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained were, the manner in which Quentin Tarantino's pointed proclivity for ponderous proclamations went unchecked in those films prevented me from wholly embracing them. In The Hateful Eight, the third entry in QT's unofficial 'Revisionist Myth' trilogy, those tendencies go even further, gloriously so."

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


"A superior entertainment that marks Tarantino's most mature outing since Jackie Brown."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Morricone's seesawing score sometimes brings to mind Tarantino fave Sergio Leone, but the real ancestor here is John Carpenter's 1982 The Thing, another thriller percolating with close-quarters paranoia and Hawksian gab."

Time OutTime Out

"Some of the film's ugliness is therefore a sign of integrity, and of relevance. But much of it seems dumb and ill considered, as if Mr. Tarantino's intellectual ambition and his storytelling discipline had failed him at the same time."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

""Thriller" is a generic label which has lost its force. But The Hateful Eight thrills."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"As ever with Tarantino films, however, some of the performances are lip-smackingly delicious."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It certainly won't be a film for everyone, but for those who can handle the brutality and nihilism, there's a lot to love about The Hateful Eight."


"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."
