After the credits, the action cuts quickly to the interior of a speeding car. Mr. White, driving with one hand, is trying to comfort a hysterical Mr. Orange, who has been shot in the lower abdomen and is bleeding profusely. The human abdomen (from the Latin word meaning "belly" is the part of the body between the Pelvis and the thorax. They arrive at an abandoned warehouse, later revealed to be the rendezvous point for the armed robbery they have just committed. Mr. White leaves Mr. Orange on the warehouse floor. Mr. Pink appears and angrily suggests that the jewelry heist was a setup. Robbery is the Crime of seizing Property through Violence or Intimidation. Mr. Brown has been killed by the police and the whereabouts of Mr. Blonde and Mr. Blue are unknown to Mr. White and Mr. Pink.
Mr. " Little Green Bag " is a 1969 song written by Jan Visser and George Baker (credited as Hans Bouwens and recorded by the George Baker White and Mr. Pink are enraged at Mr. Blonde, who shot and killed several civilians after the alarm went off. They argue about whether or not to take the unconscious Mr. Orange to a hospital. A hospital is an institution for Health care providing treatment by specialised staff and equipment and often but not always providing for The argument turns violent when Mr. White reveals that he told Mr. Orange his real first name. They point their loaded pistols at each other. Mr. Blonde, who has been watching the action from the shadows, steps forward and tells them not to leave the warehouse because Nice Guy Eddie is on his way there. Mr. Blonde takes them outside to his car and opens the trunk to reveal Marvin Nash (Kirk Baltz), a police officer he has captured. Kirk Baltz (born September 14, 1959) is an American Actor who has starred in film and on television
Mr. Pink and Mr. White brutalize the officer, then Mr. Blonde tapes him to a chair. Eddie arrives at the warehouse and orders Mr. Pink and Mr. White to come with him to retrieve the stolen diamonds (that Mr. Pink stashed after fleeing the scene) and get rid of the hijacked vehicles, while ordering Mr. Blonde to stay with the dying Mr. Orange and the "cop". The officer denies knowing anything about the setup, and begs to be released. Mr. Blonde then draws a straight razor from his cowboy boot and tunes a radio to K-Billy's "Super Sounds of the '70s", which is playing "Stuck in the Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel. A straight razor is a Razor with a Blade that can fold into its handle Stealers Wheel was a Scottish folk / rock band formed in Paisley, Scotland in 1972 by former school friends Joe Egan and Dancing around to the music, Mr. Blonde slashes the officer's face and cuts off his ear. The ear is the sense organ that detects Sounds The Vertebrate ear shows a common biology from Fish to Humans with variations He then splashes the officer with gasoline and prepares to ignite it with his cigarette lighter when Mr. Orange suddenly shoots Mr. Blonde several times in the chest, killing him. Mr. Orange tells Marvin that he is actually an undercover police detective named Freddy Newandyke, and reassures him that a large police force is in position a few blocks down the road waiting for Joe Cabot to arrive.
Mr. Orange's flashback reveals how he went undercover, his mission being to catch Cabot. In history film television and other media a flashback (also called analepsis) is an interjected scene that takes the narrative back in time from the current Joe prepares the robbery and lays out the heist plan, including the code names for the men. The flashback then jumps to Mr. White, Mr. Orange and Mr. Brown minutes after the robbery; Mr. Brown has been shot in the head and crashes their getaway car because he has blood in his eyes. After Mr. White kills two pursuing cops, he and Mr. Orange see that Mr. Brown has died from his injury. They hijack a car but the female driver shoots Mr. Orange in the abdomen before Mr. Orange shoots her back and kills her. The film replays a part of the car scene from the start of the film before the view jumps back to present time at the warehouse.
The remainder of the heist group return to the warehouse to find a dead Mr. Blonde. Mr. Orange claims that Mr. Blonde was going to kill the officer, Mr. Orange and the rest of the gang so that he could take the diamonds for himself. Eddie doesn't believe the story and, furious with Mr. Orange, shoots Marvin dead. Joe walks in and tells everyone that Mr. Blue was killed, and confidently accuses Mr. Orange of being an informant, forcing Mr. White to defend Mr. Orange. Joe points a gun at Mr. Orange as Mr. White points his gun at Joe. Eddie then points his gun at Mr. White, posing a Mexican standoff. Mexican standoff is a strategic deadlock or Impasse, in which no party can act in a way that ensures victory After a brief attempt at reasoning with each other, Joe shoots Mr. Orange and is then shot dead by Mr. White; Eddie shoots Mr. White, who shoots and kills Eddie. Mr. Pink, who stayed out of the shootout, takes the diamonds and flees. There is some ambiguity as to what his fate is. Some barely audible dialogue suggests he was subdued by the police. Mr. White cradles Mr. Orange in his arms and Mr. Orange reveals that he is a cop, devastating his friend. Mr. White puts his gun to Mr. Orange's head just as the police enter. Mr. White defies the warnings of the police and shoots Mr. Orange; the police, in turn, shoot Mr. White, killing him.
Tarantino had been working as a video store clerk in Los Angeles and was originally going to shoot the film with his friends on a budget of $30,000 on 16 mm format with producer Lawrence Bender playing Nice Guy Eddie. Los Angeles (lɑˈsændʒələs los ˈaŋxeles in Spanish) is the largest City in the state of California and the American West Lawrence Bender (born October 17) is an American Film producer. However, when actor Harvey Keitel became involved he agreed to act in the film and co-produce.  Harvey Keitel was then cast as Mr. White. With Keitel's assistance, the filmmakers were able to raise $1. 5 million to make the film. 
Reservoir Dogs was, according to Tarantino, his version of Stanley Kubrick's The Killing. The Killing ( is the second feature length Film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick, written by Kubrick and Jim Thompson, based on the novel Tarantino himself said that "[he] didn't go out of [his] way to do a rip-off of The Killing but [he] did think of it as [his] 'Killing,' [his] take on that kind of heist movie. " Reservoir Dogs has also been accused of plagiarism, specifically Ringo Lam's 1987 film City on Fire, and has even been accused of lifting entire scenes from this film. Plagiarism is the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work Ringo Lam Ling-Tung ( Cantonese: Lam Ling-tung born in 1955 is a Hong Kong Film director, producer and Scriptwriter. Events January 31 - The Cure for Insomnia premieres at The School of the Art Institute in Chicago Illinois, to City on Fire ( is a gritty and stylish 1987 Hong Kong action film produced and directed by Ringo Lam, and starring Chow Tarantino has denied that he plagiarized with Reservoir Dogs instead claiming that he does homages. 
One unique feature of the film is that the actual heist is never shown. Tarantino has said that the reason for not showing the heist was initially budgetary but that he always liked the idea of not showing it and stuck with that idea. He has said that the technique lets the viewer realize that the movie is "about other things".  He compared this to the work of a novelist and has said that he wanted the movie to be about something that is not seen and that he wanted it to "play with a real-time clock as opposed to a movie clock ticking". 
Reservoir Dogs opened in 19 theaters with a first week total of $147,839 in the United States. The United States of America —commonly referred to as the  The film was never released to more than 61 theaters in the US and totaled $2,832,029 at the box office there.

At the film's release at the Sundance Film Festival, film critic Jami Bernard of the New York Daily News compared Reservoir Dogs to one of the first films L'Arrivée d'un Train en Gare de la Ciotat, in which audiences first saw the moving train coming towards the camera and scrambled. The Sundance Film Festival is a Film festival that takes place annually in the state of Utah, in the United States. Jami Bernard (born on August 10, 1956) is an Author and award-winning Film critic.

Vincent Canby of the New York Times enjoyed the cast and the usage of flashbacks. Vincent Canby ( July 27 1924 &ndash September 15 2000) was an American film critic. He similarly complimented Tarantino's directing and liked the fact that he didn't often use close-ups in the film.  Kenneth Turan of the LA Times also enjoyed the film and the acting, particularly that of Buscemi, Tierney and Madsen, and said "Tarantino's palpable enthusiasm, his unapologetic passion for what he's created, reinvigorates this venerable plot and, mayhem aside, makes it involving for longer than you might suspect. Kenneth Turan ( (b 27 October 1946) is an American Film critic and Lecturer in the Master of Professional Writing Program at the University The Los Angeles Times (also known as the LA Times) is a daily Newspaper published in Los Angeles California and distributed "
Roger Ebert was less enthusiastic; he felt that the script could have been better and said that the movie "feels like it's going to be terrific", but Tarantino's script does not have much curiosity about the characters. Roger Joseph Ebert (iːbɝt born June 18, 1942) is an American film critic and Screenwriter. He also stated that "[Tarantino] has an idea, and trusts the idea to drive the plot. " Ebert gave the movie two and a half stars out of four also claiming that he enjoyed it, and that it was a very good film from a talented director, like other critics, he enjoyed the cast, but stated "I liked what I saw, but I wanted more". 
Reservoir Dogs has received substantial criticism for its strong violence and language. One particular scene that viewers found unnerving was Michael Madsen's ear-cutting scene, and Madsen himself reportedly had a great deal of difficulty finishing the scene especially after Kirk Baltz ad-libbed the desperate plea "I've got a little kid at home". Michael Soren Madsen (born September 25, 1958) is an American Actor and Poet.  Many people have left theaters during the film and Tarantino commented at the time
It happens at every single screening. For some people the violence, or the rudeness of the language, is a mountain they can't climb. That's OK. It's not their cup of tea. But I am affecting them. I wanted that scene to be disturbing. 
During a screening of the movie at a Film Festival in Barcelona, fifteen people walked out, including renowned Horror film Director Wes Craven and Special Effects artist Rick Baker.

Critic John Hartl compared the ear-cutting scene to the shower murder scene in Psycho and Tarantino to David Lynch. Psycho is a suspense / Horror film directed by auteur Alfred Hitchcock, from the Screenplay by Joseph David Keith Lynch (born January 20 1946 is an American director, Screenwriter, producer, painter, Cartoonist, Composer He furthermore explored parallels between Reservoir Dogs and Glengarry Glenn Ross.

Critic James Berardinelli was of a similar opinion; he complimented both the cast and Tarantino's dialogue writing abilities. James Berardinelli (born September 1967 is an Online Film critic.  Hal Hinson of The Washington Post was similarly enthusiastic about the cast, complimenting the film on its "deadpan sense of humor". The Washington Post is the largest and most circulated Newspaper in Washington D  Todd McCarthy called the film "undeniably impressive" and was of the opinion that it was influenced by Mean Streets, Goodfellas and The Killing. Mean Streets ( 1973) is an early Martin Scorsese film starring Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel. Goodfellas (also spelled GoodFellas) is an Academy Award winning 1990 Crime drama film directed by Martin Scorsese The Killing ( is the second feature length Film noir directed by Stanley Kubrick, written by Kubrick and Jim Thompson, based on the novel 
Reservoir Dogs has often been seen as a prominent film in terms of on-screen violence.  J. P. Telotte compared Reservoir Dogs to classic caper noir films and points out the irony in its ending scenes. The caper story is a subgenre of Crime fiction. The typical caper story involves one or more crimes (especially thefts swindles or occasionally kidnappings perpetrated  Mark Irwin also made the connection between Reservoir Dogs and classic American noir. 
A notable motif in Tarantino's films is the use of accidents to move the plot further. In Reservoir Dogs, the major plot event is also moved by an accidental occurrence; in this case the robbery going awry.  Caroline Jewers called Reservoir Dogs a "feudal epic" and compared it to Pulp Fiction. She paralleled the color pseudonyms to color names of medieval knights. 
A frequently cited comparison has been to Tarantino's second and more successful film Pulp Fiction especially since the majority of audiences saw Reservoir Dogs after the success of Pulp Fiction. Comparisons have been made regarding the black humor in both the films, the theme of accidents, and more concretely, the style of dialogue and narrative style that Tarantino incorporates into both of his movies.  Also, the prominent theme of racism plays a big part in the films, specifically the relationship between whites and blacks. Stanley Crouch of the New York Times compared the way the white criminals speak of blacks in Reservoir Dogs to the way they are spoken of in Scorsese's Mean Streets and Goodfellas. Crouch observed the way the blacks are looked down upon in Reservoir Dogs, but also the way that the criminals accuse each other of "verbally imitating" the blacks and the characters' apparent sexual attraction to black actress Pam Grier. Pamela Suzette "Pam" Grier (born May 26, 1949) is an American Actress.
