Swift, Gory, Amusing.

Don't be misled by the title. It's true that the central couple -- Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette -- are in love. There's never any doubt about it, though, so we don't have too many domestic disputes, no anguish over whether the two will find spiritual fulfillment in one another, no tearful complaints from the wife that the husband is married to his career, nothing cute at all, as a matter of fact. Adequate support is provided by Bronson Pinchot and a couple of others, including several one-day walk ons by figures you'll recognize at once.

In possession of half a million bucks worth of cocaine, which they are willing to part with for half that amount, just to avoid the hassle of cutting it and selling it, Slater and Arquette take off for Hollywoodland where, as everyone knows, the cocaine is as ubiquitous as the car exhaust. The mob, however, does not approve of Slater's absconding with their "cola" and are in pursuit, at the end of which they (and the cops too) catch up with the couple during a deal with a Hollywood mogul surrounded by well-armed gentlemen. The Hollywood goons shoot at the mob, the mob shoots at the goons, and the police shoot at everybody. The air is filled with feathers from exploded pillows as Arquette and the wounded Slater sneak out and head for Mexico.

It's funny, but it's a pretty gory movie too. James Gandolfini shows up at Arquette's apartment and demands to know where the coke is. Arquette can't stop giggling as she tells him that there's a Coke machine at the end of the hall. She giggles through howls of pain even as he beats her to a pulp and throws her through walls. She winds up a bloody mess. It would be nice if professional make up personnel would remember that blood in the open coagulates and turns dark after half an hour. Here, as elsewhere, it's vermilion throughout.

Despite the tumult, it's amusing. At times the dialog reaches for the keen. Maybe the funniest role is Brad Pitt's, as a stoned roommate of one of the lesser figures. Faced with a shotgun, he decides it would be better to withdraw his offer of a hit from his bong.

Classic Tarantino

True Romance is one of those movies that I've heard about for so many years and heard so many great things about, but never actually got around to seeing until now. In many ways, this is a classic Tarantino film. Albeit, it's only written by him and directed, it still feels like the same old obscurely charming tone that he brings to each of his films. At its heart, True Romance is a romance with a little bit of violence, luckily the incredibly talented cast and smartly written script, it's a whole lot more than that.

I'd be wrong not to mention the amazing Hans Zimmer score that finally turned me on to the film. It's so simple, yet so cheerfully poignant, if that makes sense. Coming and going when needed, and always having a presence, it's truly one of Hans Zimmer's best, which is saying a lot. I had to get that out of the way because there's plenty more to get excited about with True Romance. Let's take the cast for example, which displays some of the greatest cameos in film history. Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Michael Rapaport, Bronson Pinchot, and Brad Pitt make up the main cast. But the supporting cast includes Dennis Hopper, James Gandolfini, Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Walken, Tom Sizemore, Val Kilmer, and Gary Oldman make their presence felt for sure. I don't want to overstate it, but it may be the greatest ensemble of all time.

It's not just that there's a lot of great actors though, everyone gets their chance to shine. Brad Pitt has a glorified cameo-role, but yet it's one of his more memorable roles. Gary Oldman is unrecognizable as Drexel, and also has a small part, but his big scene is easy one of the best in the film. Gandolfini, in a pre-Sopranos gig, proves to charismatic yet terrifying as a henchman for a crime boss. And who can forget Walken's iconic cameo as Vincenzo Coccotti, another person after Clarence and the cocaine he stole. Scene after scene, line after line, True Romance is one of the most quotable and re-watchable films ever made.

Granted, after one viewing I'm over-hyping it a bit. There are some undeniable issues with True Romance, like how everything happens so easily for Clarence. There are some consequences for his character here and there, but for the most part, he gets away with what he wants and it all comes very easily for a guy who was just presented to be a nerd from Detroit. I also don't feel like the ending completely wraps up what it needs to. In classic Tarantino fashion, things happen really fast and in a chaotic and unexpected nature, therefore leaving a few strings loose in the end. Seemingly leaving the door open for a sequel, which never came.

In all though, True Romance is a film that is as enjoyable to watch as it probably was to film. Everything was hitting on all cylinders, and it became a classic many years later for it.

Perfect scenario paired with terrifying cast and dialogue makes this one of best movies ever made!

True Romance is obscure film. Film was unfortunate to come at the time in which huge blockbusters and award winning film were slowly coming to screen, there of it was forgotten. All people to who I recommended this film never heard about it, and when they saw it, they only have one word: SUPERB! Tarantino who decided to split Natural born killers and True Romance scripts (which ere basically same script ) made terrifying job at it, but real star behind film is late Tony Scott. Without a doubt, this is best film Scott has ever made, and that can be seen in whole film, from cast to score and even ending which is best thing that Scott decided to do, despite Tarantino's wishes, but even Tarantino himself was pleased at the end of it. Scott gave himself into the film and created cult masterpiece that will never be forgotten. Cast is terrifying. Cristian Slater before he become second rate actor and Patricia Arquete had believable chemistry on screen which made whole film. Supporting cast including Gary Oldman ( In his best role ever put to screen), Christopher Walken, James Gandolfini, Denis Hopper not to mention others, made beautiful ensemble cast which was not very well known at the time, but today, they are all first class actors. I could write about this film for hours, but in the end I can only say that watch this film and enjoy one of best films ever made. Live fast, die young, be a ice looking corpse!
