Tarantino moves into the cinematic mainstream with his trademark violence and '70s pop culture mindset intact in this stylish crime trilogy. A day in the life of a criminal community unexpectedly shifts from outrageous, esoteric dialogue to violent mayhem with solid scripting that takes familiar stories to unexplored territory. Offbeat cast offers superb performances, led by Travolta in his best role to date as a hit man whose adventures with partner Jackson tie the seemingly unrelated stories together. Clever, almost gleeful look at everyday life on the fringes of mainstream society. Inspired by "Black Mask" magazine.

Two hit men names Jules and Vincent have to try and find a brief case that was stolen from their boss, Marsellus Wallace, who isn't the kind of man you want mad at you. Not only is Vincent (played by John Travolta) supposed to get the brief case, but Marsellus wants him to take his wife Mia out for the evening while Marsellus is away. The night doesn't go as planned because Mia has a drug overdose and has to be revived and they both decide that Marsellus shouldn't know about the horrible evening. Meanwhile, Butch Coolidge (played by Bruce Willis) is a boxer who takes a lot of money from Marsellus to lose his boxing match, ends up killing his opponent and needs to get out of town quick. Then while Jules and Vincent are at a restaurant two people named Honey Bunny and Pumpkin are about to rob the place and end up taking the money from the brief case that Jules and Vincent finally got a hold of. This is a really great movie with great actors with an ending you don't expect.
