      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Fueled by Quentin Tarantino's savvy screenplay and a gallery of oddball performances, Tony Scott's True Romance is a funny and violent action jaunt in the best sense.

      Budd Wilkins Slant Magazine The varying sensibilities of Quentin Tarantino and Tony Scott come together to fashion one of the cornerstone films of the early 1990s. Jul 22, 2022 Full Review Anton Bitel Little White Lies This is the realm of meta-cinema, where those who make movies, those who long to be in them and those who model their behaviour on them all come together to contrive between them a classic movie climax: a shoot-out... Jul 19, 2021 Full Review Mark Kermode Observer (UK) This is the best film Quentin Tarantino never made. Rated: 4/5 Nov 22, 2015 Full Review Alistair Lawrence Common Sense Media While it might not have garnered the same critical praise as the Tarantino-helmed Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, True Romance has a charm of its own, which makes it impossible not to love. Dec 10, 2023 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com '...the perenially absorbing kinetic character collisions of True Romance are worth savouring...' Rated: 5/5 Jan 1, 2023 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk wildly improbable and delightfully unpredictable, even when charging through some very familiar territory Rated: 3/4 Jul 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Morph I Simply amazing version of a Bonnie and Clyde-esque styled movie with Tarentino's flair. Incredible cast. The opening credits have non stop A class actors. And they all have their character arcs for a perfect amount of engagement. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review BJ M It was ok if you don't have something better to watch. Very violent. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review Noah g its a good movie, to be honest i didnt really enjoy watching it myself. ill still give it 3 and a half stars, and it probably deserves more, i just personally didnt enjoy it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/24 Full Review Patrick C I could watch and enjoy the first 20min of this movie over and over and over until the day I die. Not that the rest of the movie isn't great. It's hugely entertaining, which contrary to most of today's cinema, takes a back seat to making sure all the right boxes are checked. Ms. Arquette is absolutely mesmerizing in this film, too often overshadowed by the names elsewhere. Yeah, Slater, Samuel L., Hopper, Oldman, Gandolfini, Walken, Pitt, Sizemore, Penn, etc. In a film so loaded with just ridiculous amounts of talent, the real star is Alabama, played by Patricia Arquette. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review Georgan G Interesting combination of romance & vicious crimes. Amazing script and acting. If you know anything about Quentin Tarantino, you know what you are getting yourself in. Enjoy. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/25/24 Full Review Alec C True love is something to fight for, even if it means killing others to do it! Clarence Worley and Alabama Whitman are on the run after Clarence kills Whitman's pimp and steals a suitcase of cocaine from a dangerous crime family, spurring a cross-country crime spree. Hilariously violent yet oddly romantic, this tale of romance, guns and carnage is as endearing as any other romantic comedy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Read all reviews
