A firm favourite of obnoxious film students everywhere, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction weaves together a series of loosely connected stories across a single day.

One of those stories is boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) and gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhymes) being kidnapped by the demented owner of a pawn shop.

Butch and Marsellus are not the best of friends before they are held hostage; Butch was supposed to throw a fight in order to fulfil a bet, but double-crossed Marsellus and took the money for himself. However, when Butch manages to escape his captors, he goes back for the man who was previously hunting him down.

After being freed by Butch, Marsellus works with the boxer to take down the rest of the kidnappers. Liberated but scarred, Marsellus calls it quits with Butch in exchange for his silence on the terrible events that went down in the pawn shop.

Pulp Fiction is all about unlikely character interactions and shifting morality. Marsellus and Butch are great examples of both, as neither of them are good people, but audiences still managed to get invested in them coming together and saving themselves from a horrible fate.
