Tony Scott and Quentin Tarantino's stylized action-romance boasts an eccentric cast of memorable characters. Each new face trying to beat the other ones' scene chewing. Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette fit the Bonnie-&-Clyde roles well. Gary Oldman is especially intimidating as the scarred dreadlocked pimp Drexl Spivey.

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.

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

Our Daily Free Stream: True Romance. Zum Geburtstag von Dennis Hopper! - Das hier ist ein Film, der sein eigenes Universum kreiert und sich frech darin sonnt. In der eigenen Glorie. Unschwer zu erkennen, entspringt dieses Universum aus den tiefsten Wünschen eines Heranwachsenden (und zwar eines männlichen). True Romance sind die feuchten Träume eines Teenagers, der Martial Arts Filme liebt, Waffen und Mädchen mit dicken Dingern. Schlecht ist der Film deshalb nicht, es braucht nur den richtigen Zugang. True Romance öffnet einfach ganz viele Schubladen voller Klischees und sortiert. Das aber mit solcher Energie, soviel Spass und derartig bekloppten Einlagen, dass ich mich nur schwer dagegen wehren konnte! Einfach das Gehirn am Einlass abgeben. Der Held Clarence (Christian slater) ist …

A call girl falls for a client and after a violent conrontation with her pimp they find themselves on the run in Hollywood with a suitcase full of cocaine and mobsters on their tail. True Romance is very much a nineties zeitgeist movie with an ensemble cast packed with familiar faces, including Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper who unsurprisingly share the best scene, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gandolfini, Saul Rubinek, Chris Penn, Tom Sizemore and even young up and comer Brad Pitt in a cameo role. But it's the chemistry between its stars that really makes the film; it's one of those films where you can't imagine anyone else playing those parts and I defy any hereosexual man not to fall in love with Patricia Arquette by the end of the film! Its script is also one of Quentin …
