Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

It was directed with energetic skill by Top Gun Tony Scott, but this breathtaking 1993 thriller (think of it as an adolescent crime fantasy on steroids) has Quentin Tarantino written all over it. True Romance is really part of a loose trilogy that includes Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, with a crackling Tarantino screenplay that rides a fine line between raucous comedy and violent excess. Christian Slater plays Clarence, the comic-book lover who meets a beguiling prostitute named Alabama (Patricia Arquette), confronts her vicious pimp (Gary Oldman), and embarks on a cross-country odyssey with $5 million worth of Mafia cocaine. Mayhem ensues, culminating in a favorite Tarantino climax--the "Mexican standoff"--in which a roomful of guys are pointing guns at each other, waiting to see who shoots first. Brutal, profane, and totally outrageous, True Romance is not for everyone, but with a supporting cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, and Val Kilmer (as the ghost of Elvis!), you can be sure this movie will never be boring. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarentino's Frist - Possibly His Best... June 28 2004
Format:DVD
I recently read Tarantino's original screenplay to "True Romance". Apart from the change in narrative structure (non-chronological), it hints to a bleaker, grittier urban drama, with a tragic ending. It would have been very interesting to see the final film in Tarantino's vision.
Tony Scott's sugar-coated adaptation works wonders though. It was made very clear in the script that the relationship between the two leads was very strong. Scott took this unison and gave the film a fairy-tale tone. The villains in the film are very colourful, contributing to the feel that Scott has established. Hans Zimmer's score does nothing better, than to enforce this vision.
The cast is one of the most impressive line-ups I've ever seen. Much of the film rests on the shoulders of Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette, both characters come off very likable with clear, clean, simple motives. These are career performances. Dennis Hopper gives good in his limited screen-time as Christian's ex-cop, ex-alcoholic father. It is in his time shared with Christopher Walken (being a one-scene wonder, like in "Pulp Fiction"), that he comes off at his best. The Sicilian scene is Walken's most intense since "Deer Hunter". Gary Oldman also gives another deliciously evil and memorable performance, the man is a chameleon, he is yet to unimpress me.
But one of my favourite things about the cast is seeing then-relative-unknowns Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini in small, but memorable roles. A real shame that Jackson's performance was cut down heavily from the script, some of the dialogue in his one scene was very amusing, if maybe a little offensive to some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian makes me quiver May 29 2004
By Amber
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite movies of all time!!!! I can watch certain scenes over and over. The chemistry between Patricia and Christian is some of the best chemistry between two actors I've seen on the big screen (as it always is when two stars actually date. Check out Christian and Samantha Mathis' chemistry in Pump up the Volume) All the other characters are insane as well. One of the best cast films of all time. The scene between Christopher Walken and Hopper is true genius, (although I was kind of wondering why Christian or Patricia during the commentary don't mention that fact that it is racist [i guess we are just supposed to assume that just because it is Quentin Tarantino, race comments shouldn't be taken seriously? Hmmmm I haven't read Quentin's commentary yet.]) And that brown spot on Michael Rapaport's shirt after Brad Pitt (Floyd) doesn't get him toilet paper is hysterical. Maybe there is a link between those scenes or maybe not, but Tony directs the crap out of these actors and I catch something new each time I watch it. This special rated version is dope. Christian and Patricia's commentary is funny as hell. It must be weird watching a sex scene with a former lover on screen ten years later!!! And there are A LOT of great other special features. We get to see Tony Scott's storyboards. He made about 900 drawn frames, shot to shot of the movie. I learned a lot about the movie and filmmaking in general. I just hope that Christian and Tarantino can work together again. Christian's career needs just a little more twang thang shabang, and I know he can do it. He's got his kids and wife to make it happen. Christian Slater is one of the sexiest men on the screen of all time. The man literally takes my breath away everytime he is on screen. That voice? Those mannerisms? That laugh that is only one "Heh", and that crotch? GOOD GOD. Much love in your direction man, life is hard what can I say? Oh, and Patricia is a kick ass little adorable thang too.

1.0 out of 5 stars True Torture May 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
(...). This movie MIGHT have been great, and I know why some enjoy it, but Slater and Arquette were one of the most annoying, self-absorbed, and incredibly stupid couple in movie history. I really wanted them (of all the characters) to die all throughout the movie! And in the end they have a son. You can tell this kid is going to end up in prison or worse by the time he is old enough to vote. But worst of all is the stupidity. Clarence, the main character, somehow manages to take $500,000 worth of cocaine after committing mass murder, but leaves his ID in a dead guy's hand--even though the ID was the reason that he blew his top in the first place? And after his wife is almost killed, Clarence chooses to put them all in even more danger... suddenly the "coke" and $200,000 has become more important to him than his wife's safety or his own... even though their "romance" was the supposed catalyst for his transformation from comic book geek to mass murderer? Not to mention the title of the movie??!? These characters are stupid, unbelievable, the embodiment of immaturity and self-absorbedness, and end up becoming the murdering drug dealers they're supposed to be up against. And they actually concieve a child! No actually there's soemthing worse than all that...its that the movie tintilates you with the possibility of one or both this nefarious couple dying as a result of their own mistakes and self-degradation as they deserve, but doesn't follow through. If this movie were true it would be a serious concern about the viability of the human race. Thank goodness it is not. And thank goodness the movie is over.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for film aficionados.
A must see for film aficionados. Tarentino written, Tony Scott directed, and more celebrity appearances then I can list. Also Brad Pitt's best role.
