compelling story, indulging character development and a marzipan blend of action, romance and dark comedy to create an instant classic!

Tony Scott's 'True Romance', for all its violence, is a light-hearted love story at its centre. Although the last 5 minutes feel a little rushed, and the whole plot is a bit too far-fetched, it's saved by some excellent performances and typically memorable dialogue from Tarantino.

Quite simply my favourite movie of all time. Don't think there is another movie like this.
It makes you invest in the characters from the start, the music the opening scenes the story , I don't think another movie could ever top this for me

Didn't really get it. I loved the actors they got but the movie just didn't do anything for me. The plot was ridiculous and took over a hour for anything to happen. I respect it but not my type of movie.

This is one of the best ensemble casts of all time. The conversations between Oldman and Slater and then Walken and Hopper's characters are two of my favorite pieces of dialogue in movie history. Great small roles out of James Gandolfini and Brad Pitt and this is definetly the best work of Patricia Arquette and Michael Rapaport's career. An underrated masterpiece in my opinion.

My "little guilty pleasure"for when I'm not at my best,or I can't be bothered going out to collect a bill that's odd to me, my MOTIVATIONAL movie is "true romance"First part is with Don Vinchenzo with The ULTIMATE DON Tony Soprano in the background ready with his "lock knife"open, and poor Mr Wurrles eventually knows that his Fate is sealed(but even then he NEVER rats on his son)
And my Second part is AGAIN with Big T, and Alabama as he tries to make her tell him where his "coke is at"ESPECIALLY the scene where he pretends to be admiring her "beauty"and he asks her to turn around and then he lands a BIG right hook on her chin BUT immediately he knows that he isn't happy with it, and right at that moment he makes a gesture with his eyes as if to say to himself "you messed that up"NOW if that's not enough to put shivers down your back then you shouldn't be watching "true romance"

Wonderful movie about a completely random guy who gets setup with a hooker for his birthday. The two of them like each other so much that they get married, but the guy still has to tell the girls pimp that she's off limits. So well written by Tarantino. Some of the best dialog I've heard. It would be one of my favorites if it didn't have such horrible cinematography. Too many closeups of faces.

The best Tarantino film Tarantino didn't direct. Slater and Arquette have never been in a better film or given a better performance. The supporting cast is what makes this film shine. Val Kilmer is oddly brilliant as Elvis, Gary Oldman is just plain odd as usual. Even though the main theme score is stolen from 'Badlands', it complements the moments of romance and innocence that resonate amongst the chaos and confusion of the crime and violence.

Very, very good film. Was introduced to this in college and would definitely call it a hidden gem and cult classic.

Its difficult to get bored during a film that's this unabashedly cool. Tony Scott's energetic direction combined with Tarantino's, as per usual, flawless screenplay makes for one groovy movie. This movie is violent, funny, romantic, off-the-wall, tongue-in-cheek, excessive, absurd popcorn movie fun time at its most perfect. There's only been one movie like True Romance, and that's True Romance. There has never been another one like it and there never will be another one like it. A classic!

Great film. The scene with Hopper and Walken is one of my all time favourites. Worth watching just for that scene.

the best tarantino film to date, 2017!

It sure feels like a Tarantino movie, but an unusual and a bit forced soundtrack along with some remarkably dumb camera placements kinda takes you out of it.

An unapologetic pastiche of Terrence Malick's vastly superior Badlands, right down to the shameless Carl Orff music by Hans Zimmer. As with so much of Tony Scott's output it never knows when to stop (Gandolfini's beating up of Patricia Arquette) and places visuals and soundtrack over story and script. One scene transcends all the others: Christopher Walken's interrogation of Dennis Hopper. These guys know what they're doing, and for once Scott allows it to play without fuss.

One of Tony Scott's best. The screenplay by Tarantino is what gives the movie it's tone of voice and Tony Scott hasn't directed at better movie better than this cult ground breaking of a film. And the performances all around are incredible but the two that stand out the most is Chris Walken and Dennis Hopper in the "Sicilian scene" that must be in the top 100 best scenes of all time in movie history. And the music itself for its time is what gives the movie it's vibe which always makes me think that they don't make movies like this anymore of this style of filmmaking.

This money will take the 3rd slot in my favorite movie list. It is in fact a movie that I have True Romance for. The characters, to pimps, to gangsters, to hookers, to cocaine it is an amazing movie even if the premise is cliche.
