Rating:
R

Resevoir Dogs is a Quentin Tarentino directed crime thriller that was produced in 1992. The movie revolves around the lives of six criminals who are hired by a crime boss, Joe Cabot (Lawrence Tierney), to complete a very difficult diamond robbery. Their identities are protected by using fake names and it is ensured that their sole focus remains the completion of the robbery. However, things do not go as planned. The police seem to know exactly what is going on and when they show up at the site of the robbery, the group goes into a panic and wonders who among them informed the police of the plan. The problem is it could be anyone, and yet it seems as though it is none of them. There is a shootout with the police and those who escape do so at a heavy price. They are all out for blood and suspect each other of treachery. The real question is whether any of them will survive.
