Editorial Reviews

True Romance (Unrated) (BD)

Runaway lovers Clarence and Alabama (Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette) play a dangerous game when they come to possess a suitcase of mob contraband. They head for Los Angeles, where they'll sell the goods and begin a new life. But both sides of the law have other ideas. Screenwriter Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown) and director Tony Scott (Top Gun, Spy Game) shoot the works in this hard-edged mix of hip wit and dazzling action with an electrifying ensemble cast to die for.

Format: DVD
True Romance is one of those great films that was rather unfairly and bizarrely largely ignored on it's original theatrical release but it's really hard to know why. It's not because of the script/screenplay, that was written by the great Quentin Tarantino, with all the trademark flourishes you'd expect, with witty dialogue and great set-pieces that leave you quoting them for weeks. It's not because it's got a poor cast or poor acting. Apart from the leads, Christian Slater and the wonderful Patricia Arquette (in undoubtedly their greatest screen performances), this movie has a cast list like a whose who of great screen actors; Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman and Christopher Walken. It also boasts a great cameo performance from Brad Pitt and a superb supporting performance from (the then not so famous) James Gandolfino. Val Kilmer and Samuel L. Jackson even turn up too in blink and you'll miss it performances.
This is a great movie, a cool movie, a funny movie and an action movie. Directed by Tony Scott, one of the best (if not the best) action movie directors around, True Romance is the story of Alabama (Arquette) and Clarence (Slater) young newlywed lovers on the run with a stolen suitcase full of $5m worth of the mafia's coke, which they intend to sell. But as the old saying goes, the path to true love never runs smooth and a battle of wits ensues between Clarence, the police and the mob leading to a classic finale in this action packed film. As a whole, this movie works beautifully but on DVD it's even better because you can access all your favourite classic scenes that unmistakeably bare Tarantino's hallmark again and again.

The picture on the Blu-ray edition is soft and flat compared to many recent movies. That might just be the way this movie looks (I didn't see it in the theater), but don't expect to be dazzled by the PQ on this BD. The movie itself is great, with an unbelievable cast, clever dialogue and memorable characters (particularly Gary Oldman's). If you don't already own the DVD, this Blu-ray edition is highly recommended. If you're considering a double dip, though, you might want to rent it first or check some reviews.

I am sure my title for this review will generate more than a few cyber-eyerolls, but I mean it in all seriousness (kind of). This movie is chock full of all the American pop-culture references you can handle. These range from Christian Slater-as-Clarence's comic book store ("Heros for Sale"), to his predilection for 70s kung-fu movies, to Clarence's invocation of himself as Steve McQueen: "We now return to Bullitt already in progress...", to the Elvis figure that actually haunts him and directs him at key moments in his life (an Elvis that is played in a sort of cameo by Val Kilmer). It also has some of the best, and oddest, performances of pretty much everyone involved: Val Kilmer (as Elvis mentioned above), Dennis Hopper IS Clarence's ultimately wise but washed-out security guard father living in a trailer by the railroad tracks, Brad Pitt has a great small role as "Floyd" the good-natured stoner (another one of his great "grimy" characters), James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano) makes what might be his film debut(?) as a sadistic hit-man, Gary Oldman is perfect as the gloriously pimped-out and evil "Drexel", and how could anyone forget Patricia Arquette as the jiggly "Alabama"?
As an example, one of the best scenes in this movie, and one of my all-time favorites, is the "interview" between the Mafia-envoy played to cold perfection by Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper. This pairing alone makes this movie worth the [money]. The key moment is when Dennis Hopper realizes there is no good way out of this for him, so he tries to goad Walken into killing him before he is forced to give away the whereabouts of his son. To accomplish this, he gives Walken and all the other hit-men packed into his trailer a little history lesson on the genetic roots of their distinctive Sicilian phenotype.

Format: DVD
At all costs avoid the "R" rated version of this film. The distributor had significant cuts made in order to sell it at Walmarts and other middle-American cultural outlets. These aren't just minor changes - indeed, the ending of the "R" version is different than the "NR" Director's cut, and the violence is much reduced in several scenes.
Make no mistake, the "R" version is a waste of money. Accept only the Director's cut and you won't be disappointed.
All in all, a superb film, with everyone involved at the top of their respective games.

I've bought this movie 3 times: VHS, DVD, and now Blu-ray. I can't believe the complaining about "bad transfers". I got this one when the price was only $11.99, in spite of negative comments. I waited too long! I can understand that people get nervous when upgrading favorites to Blu-ray. But some of the comments are silly. "The transfer is too dark" was one of them ("...whoever is responsible should be fired!" they said). This movie has ALWAYS been dark during the first part of the film: nights during winter in Detroit, with interiors in a bar, a movie theatre, and a brothel. Now, with Blu-ray, I can FINALLY see the details in the backgrounds during the first part of the film! The second part is in daytime Los Angeles, with its sunny smog, and here the colors (and detail) are also MUCH improved; AND the soundtrack! On the same disc are generous bonus commentaries and scenes as well.

If you like this movie, it's just crazy not to add this Blu-ray to your collection at its current LOWEST price!
