Product Description

The film follows the turbulent relationship between Sid Vicious (Gary Oldman) and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen (Chloe Webb), following their love affair from their first encounters on the London Punk scene to Spungen's death at her boyfriend's hands in a seedy New York hotel. Director Alex Cox eschews moral judgement in favour of an attempt to show how their attachment to each other was motivated by universal human needs, fashioning a classic romantic love story out of unpromising material. Courtney Love makes a brief appearance.

Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb are almost too good for comfort...I felt trapped in the hell of the characters they portrayed. -- Sunday Express

4.0 out of 5 stars as good as it ever was 9 Jan 2012
By cartoon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i remember catching this on tv years ago but unlike so many other films , this has really stood the test of time . One of the few Oldman performances when he doesnt go too far , Chloe Webb is great as the terrible but captivating Nancy . I loved seeing a pre fame and surgery Courtney love in all her really puppy fat . Great capturing of the music from the pogues and Joe Strummer , oh and of course lots of spitting . A great film for a saturday night in, when you open a bottle of wine and realise how sensible your life actually is .

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good 31 Oct 2001
Format:VHS Tape
i sat down to watch this film expecting to be disgusted and bored after all the cutting reviews i have read on it. but it blew me away. oldman and webb are incredibly convincing and the script and plotlines smoothly pan out to reveal a surprisingly tender love beneath the squalor and the drugs. i recommend that you watch the film with an open mind and decide for yourselves whether they were wasters as some people have described them or just terribly lonely and misguided people...

The story of Sid and nancy is ultimately one of tragedy but Alex Cox presents it in a way that leads to some acceptance for their fans. The film is hilarious in parts at the beginning but as Sid's world spirals downwards into depths of sickness and heroin the audience plunges with the couple. Gary Oldman portrays the vulnerability of Sid perfectly, whilst Chloe webb manages to balance the little girl side of nancy with the image that the media usually portray her with. Despite the squalor, Sid and nancy contains the most romantic sex scene and their love will move you more then any typical romantic comedy could. Every scene is structured perfectly, the falling rubbish symbolising their increasing isolation, the fire representing their loss of reality. I expected to cry whihc i hate but the actors drag you into the hotel room with them make you see why they died. I cannot express the true excellence of this film, not within 1000 words you have to watch it.

4.0 out of 5 stars punk romeo and juliet 31 Jan 2004
Format:DVD
even if you werent a fan of the Sex Pistols then this would still make you laugh, cry, think, and see what actually happened in the punk era before we had pop idol. Gary Oldman plays a great Sid, and Chloe Web a nauseating Nancy! Also tells the story of the bands demise, and it gets quite dark near the end when the troubled lovers are in America. You will learn something from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gives you hell 9 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
Sid and Nancy depicts the morbidly fascinating story of the tragic love between the Sex Pistols bassist, Sid Vicious and his American girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. The film is set in the peak of the British punk era, and aside from the story at the centre of the tale; the film makes the best of it's surroundings. Depicting numerous controversial incidents, director Alex Cox puts us firmly in the centre of this era. The location choices of seedy bars and even seedier lodgings help to give the film a downtrodden "I don't care" sort of feel, and this compliments the love story excellently. The love story itself isn't your conventional boy meets girl romance, as the two parties are clearly high on drugs throughout most of the film and there isn't a lot of the touching side of romance on display. However, as the band at the core of this film were keen to stick two fingers up at conventions, the film does the same for the common love story. The scenes that see Nancy take her love home to her grandparent's house show this best, and are skilfully done, and are funny in an absurd, hellish sort of a way.
The acting is fabulous, particularly from the male side of the two leads. Gary Oldman gives a stunning performance as the punk rocker Sid Vicious, perfectly capturing both the uncaring punk side of the man, and also the deeper, darker side of his personality. Chloe Webb isn't quite his equal, however; as although her performance as the highly strung American broad isn't bad by a long shot; she has a tendency to get very annoying at times, which takes some credibility away from her performance. Throughout, the film is like a car wreck; despite the hellishness of the events that unfold, the film remains interesting and it is nigh on impossible to take your eyes away from what's befalling the lead characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sid & Nancy great but Johnny's Rotten 17 May 2005
Format:DVD
Gary Oldman & Chloe Webb give stunning performances as the tragic couple in a film that is surely the best advert ever for just saying No!While Oldman & Webb shine in their respective roles that cannot be said for the rest of the cast.The actors picked to play Messrs Rotten,Jones & Cook are so unlike the real Sex Pistols it is untrue as is the music they portray in the film.However this film is all about Oldman & Webb & they really excel as Sid & Nancy especially Oldman who is one of the finest British actors of his generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah yeah yeah 3 May 2014
By cmarie
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's a version. There are many. Revision is rife or some would say part of the "creative" process. I say: WATCH THIS FOR GARY OLDMAN'S PERFORMANCE. That alone makes this film rate for me. Knock out.
