Crtically acclaimed for its raw power and breathtaking ferocity, it's the brilliant American gangster movie classic from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. They were perfect strangers, assembled to pull off the perfect crime. Then their simple robbery explodes into a bloody ambush, and the ruthless killers realize one of them is a police informer. But which one?

You'll witness the most appalling act of violence since the decapitation in 'Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.' But you'll see nervy brilliance too. If Quentin Tarantino signs his name in blood across the screen, he does it with a sure, original flourish.
