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.

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

If the romance seldom seems 'true', the spiralling violence (script, Quentin Tarantino) does succeed, in a brutish, cod-Jacobean kind of way.
May 20, 2003
This film's various outrages are committed unapologetically, and are very much in the service of its bizarre story.
May 12, 2001
It's Tarantino's gutter poetry that detonates True Romance. This movie is dynamite.

Sifting through the bloody, pulpy trash of True Romance -- should you care to -- you'll find amusing, smart-alecky nuggets planted by screenwriter Quentin Tarantino.
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.

If you're in the mood for this sort of absurd, violent nonsense ... True Romance does deliver.
January 1, 2000
Despite Tony Scott's occasional blundering, True Romance is still a visceral roller coaster.

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