The movie is enlightening, not because it transmits new information, but in the way that movies enlighten, through a synergy of images and rhythms that makes us sense the world in a new way.

They are anti-heroes of the tallest order, yet some of the most riveting and dementedly sympathetic characters ever created

It's an interminable farrago of slogans and pyrotechnics. It has the scathing exaggeration of satire, without the point and bite which make us recognise the real world. It flies off into its own realm of sadistic fantasy.

It can easily be said that "Natural Born Killers" ranks among the worst films in Oliver Stone's filmography. It's an incompetently-made attempt at drilling home an incredibly simplistic point that anyone can learn from turning on the news.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4
August 25, 2008
Electrifying, except when it's stupid.

June 23, 2008
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.

January 25, 2006
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
January 3, 2006
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.

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

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
May 14, 2003
Flashy, loathsome, and utterly empty.
| Original Score: 1/5
March 18, 2003
[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.

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.
