News & Interviews for Romeo Is Bleeding
Critic Reviews for Romeo Is Bleeding
The far-fetched plotting eventually goes so far over the top that pic flirts with inventing a new genre of film noir camp.
It would be facile to say it substitutes style for content; actually, it substitutes stylishness for style.
Stylistic but ultimately unsatisfying.
Hilary Henkin's script isn't as smart as it thinks it is, and only Olin's breathtakingly excessive femme fatale hits the right note of campy panache.
For all its promise, and for all the brittle beauty of Dariusz Wolski's cinematography, Romeo Is Bleeding eventually collapses under the weight of its violent affectations.
Audience Reviews for Romeo Is Bleeding
films like this give noir a bad name. oldman's voiceover is irritating, the script is all over the place and the final result is more sleazy than stylish. almost quit on it a couple times but it kept promising to get better...then went completely off the deep end. the only thing worth watching here is lena olin's psychotic lingerie-clad hitwoman. she's pretty great. what a waste
Olin is fantastic, but the movie is overcooked.
Not as good as I remember it was. But of course, Gary Oldman was incredible.
