If you took all the good parts and put them together you'd have a awesome 30 minute show.

Loved it! If you're a Tarantino fan, you won't be disappointed. Leo is fantastic but Brad steals the movie. Whole cast was great. I had a blast!

Tarantino brings it every time! Leo was fantastic, as usually; definitely Oscar worthy performance. I feel in love with Margot Robbie! She brings such a sweetness and lovability to the screen. Brad Pitt was superb as supporting actor. Every cameo was exciting to discover, except where’s Quent? I loved every minute of this film.

Tarantino's most meandering film to date, with a fantastic 30 minute ending that wasn't worth the set up.

The movie takes a while to get started. Would possibly cause some a loss of interest and impression of a bad movie. Try to put your mind in the 50s and you will see some great acting. Probably not one of Tarintinos best movies. Keep an open mind and I think you will enjoy it overall. I will say it's way too long.

A slow burn film that kinda feels like a Tarantino film but ultimately is a tad boring with no plot, character arcs, or meaning other than “look at this luxurious representation of old Hollywood”. The ending makes it a lot better but I don’t watch a Tarantino film for the ending.

Great cast. Hilarious scenes. Makes you do some rethinking of iconic people. Do some research on the Manson family murders of Sharon Tate to give this movie more understanding. All the little details make it feel like you are transported back to the 1968-1969.

If you like the style of Tarantino films, this one shouldn't disappoint you. His films are always disjointed, in a good way, weaving multiple story lines, and telling a great story. There were truly laughable moments and some slow points, all things I expect out of a Tarantino film, which are well-balanced and round out the film as a whole. The cast is fantastic and the acting was superb. I loved stepping into the backlot of Hollywood cinema in the 1960s. It was a unique and refreshing tale with great characters. I'm unsure what the reviewers who gave this film such low ratings expected, but this was very much in keeping with a Tarantino film and nailed it in every way. While this wasn't my favorite Tarantino film, I really, really enjoyed it and it's a wonderful addition to his collection.

A nostalgic look back at Hollywood in the Sixties. All baby boomers will remember the reference. A surprise ending will have you cheering.

I loved the humor and if it focused on character development as its plot, it would have made it a lot better. But the subplots and ending were not very good... Very Tarantino, but not needed in this film. The way it played out in the film could have been better if they used the one a Wikipedia user made (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Once_Upon_a_Time_in_Hollywood&oldid=907859948), but in cinemas it took way too long to get to and it wasn't built up that well... I wish Tarantino didn't make the final act an action scene payoff and made it about the characters. Would have made more of an impact on me and would have cut the subplots that were not needed and could have made the film less boring. Disappointed Tarantino and Sony...

A lovely slice of what if with a big dollop of "gotcha". I grew up in the valley and Hollywood in the 70's. Spot on. I even remember some of the radio shows played in the background. It was fun. On the buy to watch over and over list.

I thought it was a fantastic fairytale. I loved the soundtrack. Quentin’s foot fetish was never more evident. I got a Newman/Redford vibe from them, I want another film with those two.

The chemistry between the two leads is what really carries the movie. There is no real plot. The narrative meanders a lot , but the movie is more of a character study of the life and career of an Old Hollywood actor whose star is fading and the relationship he has with his longtime stuntman/friend. This is also Quentin Tarantino's love letter to Old Hollywood movies and television. If you go in knowing it's a slow burn, it's long, and you won't get a lot from Margot Robbie (she's more set decoration than anything.) then you'll probably enjoy this flick

If junk action movies are your favorite genre, this movie might seem slow to you. The movie is dialogue-heavy. Tarantino uses flashbacks throughout the movie to establish characters and describe current events, which is fitting since the movie is inspired by a historical event and describes real people. All of the scenes tie neatly together in the finale, there isn't a scene in a movie that wouldn't contribute to the story or the internal conflict of the characters. There isn't nearly as much gore as in other Tarantino movies, which is refreshing and fits the atmosphere. All in all, very satisfying. loved it. P.S. whoever claims it to be the worst Tarantino movie surely haven't seen Django unchained.

The movie has an elegiac quality; it’s filled with passionate feeling about the fleeting nature of life and the magical permanence of cinema.

Once Upon A Time….in Hollywood is beautifully made. Beyond all the ‘Tarantino-esque’ touches of the action, the banter, the violence, the constant movie references, there’s a real craft at play here.

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is uneven, unwieldy in its structure and not without its flat patches. But it's also a disarming and characteristically subversive love letter to its inspiration.
