Rating:
Not Available
True Romance (Unrated) stars Christian Slater ("Interview With the Vampire," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves") and Patricia Arquette ("Ed Wood") in the story of two unlikely lovers propelled into a violent game of high stake negotiations and high-speed adventure when they take unexpected possession of valuable mob contraband. They plan to go from Detroit to L.A., sell the booty, and begin a new life, but the gangsters -- and the police -- have other dangerous ideas. Phenomenal all-star cast includes Val Kilmer ("Batman Forever") as the ghost of Elvis, Slater's confidante, Academy Award-nominee Brad Pitt ("Seven"), Gary Oldman ("Immortal Beloved"), Golden Globe-nominee Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan"), Bronson Pinchot (TV's "Perfect Strangers") and Samuel L. Jackson ("Pulp Fiction"), with Dennis Hopper ("Speed") and Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken ("Batman Returns") sparring in an edge-of-your-seat showdown that has become a contemporary classic. Written by Academy Award-winner Quentin Tarantino ("Pulp Fiction," "Reservoir Dogs") and directed by Tony Scott ("The Last Boy Scout," "Top Gun"). "This movie is dynamite!" raves Rolling Stone. "Electrifying!" agrees Rex Reed. And USA Today calls Arquette and Slater "irresistible, in the best crime rush since 'GoodFellas.'"moreless

    It doesn't add up to enough, as preposterous plotting and graphic violence ultimately prove an audience turnoff.
