After a slow set up, 2 bounty hunters (Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson) and one fugitive (Jennifer Jason Leigh) end up snowbound in a small cabin with 6 other suspicious types. As is typical with writer Quinton Tarantino, there’s lots of conversation…most of which lacks his typical sharp edge. This chatter goes on way too long before the action fun begins (probably 2 hours into it’s 2:47 length). The whodunit nature of the plot becomes convoluted and the payoff isn’t worth the loooong wait. Don’t get me wrong, there are some enjoyable elements: some of the characters are fun (esp. Leigh’s crusty delivery) and the final bloodbath is full of his trademark violence and humor. Not his best.
