Provides some amazing encounters, bravura acting turns and gruesome carnage. But it doesn't add up to enough.
January 1, 2000
The movie may be stylistically visceral, but it's aesthetically corrupt. It might as well have been called Pump Up the Violence.

Too often the bloodbath mentality simply washes away the film's more appealing elements.

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

Made with such energy, such high spirits, such an enchanting goofiness, that it's impossible to resist.

Despite Tony Scott's occasional blundering, True Romance is still a visceral roller coaster.

...[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.

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.

It plays out like candied noir, with a classic dialogue scene at least once every ten minutes.

The movie is exciting, thanks to the script, but when it comes to the bullet-ridden showdown, Scott shows it in fast cuts, without giving us a perspective of the action or the space. It's ruined.

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

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