Quentin Tarantino's ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is another Tarantino revenge story. While it's boring at times with random sequences, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio's bromance makes it worthwhile.
Quentin Tarantino delivers another Tarantino-esque movie with ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. All his classic troupes are evident in the movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie with cameo appearances by Al Pacino, Lena Dunham, Dakota Fanning, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Damian Lewis, Emile Hirsch, Tarantino favorites Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern.
The film clocks in at 2 hours and 41 minutes, and you feel it. There are so many miscellaneous scenes of people driving in their fancy sports cars, following a character as they run errands and other random sequences that lengthen the film unnecessarily.
The performances are solid, and that's what keeps the slow plot moving along. As usual, the banter and dialogue is witty and entertaining, with plenty of nostalgic references.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is now playing in movie theaters.
