The Hateful Eight centers on bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) taking convicted criminal Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to be hanged in the town of Red Rock. After meeting fellow bounty hunter Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L Jackson) and Red Rock's new sheriff and former Lost-Causer: Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a blizzard prevents the group from reaching the town and they are forced to find shelter in a stagecoach lounge called Minnie's Haberdashery. There the group meets the other guests: Oswaldo Mobary (Tim Roth), Bob (Damien Bichir), Joe Gage (Michael Madsen) and General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the residents of Minnie's Haberdashery are buried in snow, John quickly comes to realize that one of the eight is not who he says he is.
The Hateful Eight is definitely another solid film from Quentin Tarantino. Though the film could be a little excessive in areas such as pacing and direction, the movie definitely made for any shortcomings with its strong cast and stylish concepts. It is hard to rank this film with Tarantino's previous work, but I can say that The Hateful Eight made for a dynamic western that only this director could have put together.
