    An Underrated Gem of a Gorefest

    Posted
    Lyns

    This film is just as good as anything you'd expect from early '90s Quentin Tarantino. The problem is that this film is underrated; it is sandwiched between the controversial "Resevoir Dogs" and the acclaimed "Pulp Fiction." Also, it was not directed that Tarantino himself (although Tony Scott does an excellent job). In spite of these factors, this is one of my favorite movies. It has a superb ensemble cast (Gary Oldman's performance is hilarious, my favorite in the film), awesome action scenes (the Patricia Arquette-James Gandolfini scene will leave you shaking), and it's just an all-around good movie. Great to watch if you're into violent action films and have a sense of humor.

    well written, great action

    with an ensemble cast and some of the best written lines in an action film, True Romance delivers. Slater and Arquette do a wonderful job as a couple of newlyweds on the run from the mob with a suitcase full of drugs. The come in contact with some of the most colorful characters you've ever seen who all have the most wonderfully written lines (Brad Pitt will make you laugh till you cry). To top it off, this is a Tony Scott film, so it also delivers in the way of action that is down right intense in multiple scenes. This is a required edition to any action buff's library.

    The best non-Tarantino Tarantino movie!

    What's not to like the list of players is too long to list. This movie should be in everyone's top 10 of all time. Brad Pitt's greatest role to date. It's a great plot that makes sense. The only part of the movie that is a stretch is Christopher Walken as an Italian mobster. Otherwise just a great movie and you can tell the set must have been great as the performances are just fantastic!

    This movie is really good but it does have several violent scenes. If violence is not a problem for you then you should like this movie. Both my husband & I like it very much. We have watched it multiple times over the years. Each time it doesn't disappoint! Christain Slater, Patricia Arquette, Christopher Walken, and Dennis Hopper provide for an excellent cast!!

    Horrible transfer to Blu-ray

    Posted
    bla

    From highdefdigest.com: "this 1080p/VC-1 transfer is flat and lacks the punch that the movie really deserves. There's been an unnecessary amount of noise reduction applied to the image, which decreases the amount of texture and detail that the image clearly deserves."

    As much as I wasn't a huge fan of the subject material in this movie, I do have to give credit where credit is due, and that's for the excellent direction and performances we see in this picture. Great dvd set here for those who will enjoy it.

    this is a classic!! if you've never seen this, do yourself a favor & at least rent it or something… it's a great "love story" mixed in with mob violence. Christopher Walken is awesome in it.

    Bronson Pinchot's best

    Posted
    WillDu

    Yeah, he had a good run as Balky Bartakamous in Perfect Strangers, but never has Bronson Pinchot been better than his small role in True Romance. Everyone else in the movie was OK too, I guess.

    This is a great quirky action romance. I loved it being setup in a first person narrative, throughout the film. Quentin Tarantino does it again. What a great ride.

    It's brutal, funny, harsh, sad, ironic, ridiculous, crazy; everything a movie should be and all the right amounts. Watch this movie at the very least.

    I think this movie would've been even better if Tarantino had directed it instead of just writing the screenplay, but it's still a lot of fun.
