Natural Born Killers Reviews

David Keyes

It plays like a mad dash across the cerebral mind-field in search of the right mood, and fails drastically at finding one.

At times with this movie the art overpowered the film.

Bloody, violent, sexually explicit. Mature teens+.

Natural Born Killers finds Stone throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks.

Electrifying, except when it's stupid.

Groucho Reviews

Profane, hallucinogenic, and wickedly satirical, Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers mainlined a message from hell (a.k.a. modern America, as seen by Stone) into mall theatres and multiplexes. [Blu-Ray]

Stone has guts, I'll grant him that; but he needn't have spilled so much of it in our laps.

Fantastica Daily

An incoherent, experimental acid trip so unbearably pretentious that it gave me newfound respect for the Warren Commission. A real torture test.

| Original Score: 1/10

Emanuel Levy

One of the most audacious, timely, but also deeply problematic films, a feverish nightmare of American culture at its worst, which might explain the heated controversy and legal battles.

Sick, twisted, and brilliant.

Palo Alto Weekly

America's obsession with tabloid television and with the psychopaths whose lives the shows sensationalize is the ostensible target of Oliver Stone's latest bombastic and self-righteous exploration of evil in America.

As a satirist, [Stone's] an elephant ballerina.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Flashy, loathsome, and utterly empty.

[Stone's] idea of subtlety is to put a velvet Crown Royale sack over a hammer before he smacks you in the face with it repeatedly.

Oliver Stone does an amazing job behind the camera, and the editing is totally delirious: it's one of the most visually dazzling films I've ever seen.

Stephen Farber

Made in the style of an MTV video...Natural Born Killers is exactly the kind of bullying, mindless assault that Stone excoriates the media for perpetrating.

This is one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever,' right along with Stanley [Kubrick].

Stone can't make a point subtly -- and yes, even a brutal, hallucinogenic movie like this one would benefit from some subtlety.

This film totally misses the point and turns into the exact thing Stone wanted to criticize...

Few filmmakers in the last twenty years have so consistently had so little to say as loudly as Oliver Stone.
