'Reservoir Dogs' (PS2/Xbox/PC) - Features & Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

Reservoir Dogs is about a gang of six thugs, brought together to carry out an armed robbery on a diamond store – their identities are closely guarded, masked behind colored codenames (Mr. Blonde, Mr. White, Mr. Pink, etc.) The plan starts to fall apart when the alarm is tripped and the cops show up within moments. Four of the robbers manage to make it back to their warehouse rendezvous but it is quickly apparent that one of them is an undercover police officer – but which one?

Reservoir Dogs was released in 1992, the first movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Whilst not a huge success on its initial theatrical release, the film soon became a cult classic on video & DVD and is now considered one of the most influential cinematic pieces of its generation.
