Engadget Review

With Be Cool doing only so-so business on the merits of mediocre reviews,  Bartholomew Simpkins of the London Times has evaluated the mixed sucess rate of the many filmic re-births of the novels of Elmore Leonard. In the positive column? Out of Sight (1998), Get Shorty (1995) and, perhaps surprisingly, Jackie Brown (1997), which earns points for Quentin Tarantino's Leonard-faithful adaptation - "all the characters are, for once, worthy of the master." Less sucessful? Valdez is Coming (1971) and the Paul Newman starrer Hombre (1967), which Simpkins dismisses as "tedious".
