Movie Info

Christian Slater comes back for another round of that old True Romance in this tale of two young lovers who set out on the lam after discovering a substantial cache of dirty money. Duke is a hapless Iraq War veteran who just can't seem to pull his life together after returning home. While his love for pretty girlfriend Amber runs deep, there seems to be something just beyond reach that's keeping him from making the transition from soldier to civilian. When Duke stumbles onto the scene of a botched drug deal and notices a large duffel bag overflowing with cash, he picks up Amber, stops off for a quick wedding, and hits the road with a bag full of bills and a beautiful new bride. At first it seems like nothing can stop this young couple from conquering the world, but someone is missing that money, and he's determined to get it back. Pollen (Slater) is a corrupt DEA agent who is willing to kill in order to reclaim the cash he believes is rightfully his, and chances are he'll slay this young couple even if they agree to give it back. With time running out and Pollen closing in, Duke and Amber will be forced to outrun and outwit a madman that has all the resources needed to track them anywhere they run to.

...an entertaining, unexpectedly gripping little thriller that benefits from an exceedingly brisk pace and the inclusion of several charismatic performances.

Audience Reviews for Love Lies Bleeding

This movie is for everyone who's just looking to hit it big with all your hopes and dreams surprisingly people struggle to stay afloat financially all the time though with this story there's a trail of blood and money hungry men willing to lie cheat and steal their way up to the top even kill i must admit the idea of a young struggling couple who just happen to fall into some money that belongs to a couple of dirty cops attracted me to the story overall i quite enjoyed the film and loved the ensemble cast and kudos to the cast and director though i hated the ending i was rooting for the young couple to make it out alive but then again one good thing came from the ending a sweet baby boy

An "OK" movie, but I would have liked a different ending.

I did think it was kind of funny though, as it reminded me a bit of "True Romance" (nowhere near as good!)...and Christian Slater is in it.
He does a good job playing bad guy, but it's still always strange for me to see him doing so.

Really good movie of a young couple on the run after the husband takes a dirty cops $$$ & Christian Slater was GREAT as the dirty DEA agent.The movie didn't end the way I was hoping & it's not something I'd watch more then once but it's worth checking out if you're looking for something to watch
