Stone...doesn't know the meaning of moderation or subtlety, and opts instead for something that is excessive and self-indulgent. It's as if he wants to shout out the statement: 'Look at what I can do! I'm an artist!'

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

Welcome to Natural Born Killers, Stone's empty, manic meditation on society's glorification of violence and the ugly heroes it loves to hate.

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

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

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

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

Leonard Schwarz
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.

| Original Score: 2/4

[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.

Flashy, loathsome, and utterly empty.

The main problem with Killers...is that it degenerates into the very thing it criticizes.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Stone's attempt to break new ground with stylized visuals, MTV editing and a story that combines parody and satire, is more annoying than enlightening.

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.

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

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

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.

Seeing this movie once is not enough. The first time is for the visceral experience, the second time is for the meaning.
