The dialogue just screams Tarantino. Every line was dissected and intentional, which is what makes conversations so interesting in all Tarantino films. It had that and it has the violence of Tarantino's style. What it didn't have and what it lacked was Tarantino in the director's chair. This movie was alright, but the performances, score, and final shoot-out scene lacked the Tarantino-esque style necessary to make this film better than it was. I enjoyed it, but I found it pretty flat. I love Slater in this movie. He is cool and nerdy at the same time.

Essentially an ultra-violent reworking of Badlands as subtlety was never one of Tony Scott's strong points. It's a classic formula however full of great Tarantino-isms, from a ghostly Elvis to the best scene in the film between easily the best actors, Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken. And I defy any heterosexual man to not fall for Patricia Arquette during the duration of this film!

i did think this was a good film for its raw and original storyline and delivery. however i dont think here are any singled out performances that beg for specific recognition. but as a whole this film definitely has depth

This weird and atmospheric violent tale reminded me a lot of Wild at Heart in that it populates a typical thriller with enough outlandish characters to feel unique. The odd romance of Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette works in an offbeat way and Brad Pitt is awesome in an early role as Slater's always stoned roommate.

All in all, a brilliant movie.

Quentin Tarantino wrote this movie which easily competes with his classics like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs from the same time period. With refreshing originality, intense drama, witty and hilarious dialog and A-List actors giving easily the best performances of their careers, (especially Slater and Walken), all thrown on top of a brilliant plot line, this movie has been one of my favorites since the mid-90s. Personal Note: I have changed my tastes a lot since my transformation into a Christian, and I'm certain that if I were to watch this movie now, I would find much of the film's content offensive (not by choice, but just as a matter of a renewed sensitivity to things like language and extreme violence). Nevertheless, the subject matter isn't "gratuitous" and unnecessary like in mos...
