Quentin Tarantino's dirty, funny and unpredictably violent genius powers True Romance, directed by Tony Scott.

The whole thing rattles along like that pink Cadillac they're driving.

The only thing that goes wrong with the movie is Christian Slater... the failure of its central character ends up being an irritation, but not a film-crippling problem.

...a pulpy good time that holds up remarkably well two decades after its theatrical release...

...[a] violently funny genre mishmash that gave Tony Scott's new life, and also transmitted Quentin Tarantino's vision more credibly than the screenwriter and then-novice director could have done himself.

If shoot-'em-up, gobble-'em-down movies like The Fugitive and Jurassic Park are rated PG-13 these days, what does an R-rated action adventure look like? Like True Romance: violent to a fault, glam to the max.

About as good as contemporary Hollywood movies get.

Such a rush that it's only towards the end that you realise the picture is less than the sum of its impressive parts.

A hall of fame guy's movie...[with] a macho '90s ensemble eclipsed only by Glengarry Glen Ross...the monologues--oh, the monologues! [Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

...a chase picture, a gangster picture, and a wacky, turbulent romance...sort of a Bonnie and Clyde on speed.

Provides some amazing encounters, bravura acting turns and gruesome carnage. But it doesn't add up to enough.

My Favorite Movie Of All Time

Emanuel Levy
January 9, 2007
Based on an early script from Tarantino, Tony Scott's wild movie is amour fou for youth of the 1990s, a gutsy, violent, often exciting picture likely to divide film critics.

Time Out
June 24, 2006
If the romance seldom seems 'true', the spiralling violence (script, Quentin Tarantino) does succeed, in a brutish, cod-Jacobean kind of way.

like always, Walken owns the movie
