I will be the first to admit that when I first noticed the poster for this movie, I rolled my eyes. I was really starting to think that Samuel L. Jackson had lost his mind and would take any roll he could find. Much to my suprise this movie was pretty good. I will admit that I do like the blues and the music in the film was excellent. I was also very suprised to see how much skin Ricci was showing in this film. If you are a fan of her you will have to check this movie out. Beyond that the story was pretty good. For the most part the story moves along pretty good and keeps your attention. I would rate this performance from Samuel L. Jackson as his best since Pulp Fiction. This movies was a suprise and I am glad I took the time to watch it.
