DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) - Go is a fast-paced, multi-plot comic thriller fashioned in a similar narrative and film-making style as Pulp Fiction. Viewers who enjoyed that previous film will find this one humorous and exciting on its own merits, not simply a mediocre rip-off of Quentin Tarantino. The film is heavy on sex, drugs and violence, so viewers will delicate sensibilities should not apply. The characterizations are a bit thin, but the action is so frenetic and inventive that many viewers -- particularly younger viewers -- will be too entertained to care much.

Critic's Review Heading
Very Good
In this cinematic era where we can't help but compare a film like Go to the work of Quentin Tarantino, it's easy to miss why so much of Go works. Like Pulp Fiction, it's a multi-story narrative full of guns, drugs and shady characters, but it's more than just a stylistic rip-off. Go understands that a film can enthrall an audience with the thrill of being surprised, with its sheer momentum, with a willingness to stray from the most obvious path just to keep us entertained. It may not be a resonant work or one with much of a message, but it's the kind of joyride that makes one pleased to compare to Tarantino.
