5.0 out of 5 stars Fine, Tarantino inspired movie, 31 July 2003
This review is from: True Romance : Special Edition [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
This is a great action/romance movie that doesn't pull any punches. Congratulations, to director Tony Scott for assembling such an all star cast of quality actors for this film; very few obscures here, in fact many of the smallest parts are taken by big stars of the acting industry like: Christopher Walken, Samuel L.Jackson, James Gandolfini, Brad Pitt etc. The movie benefits from an excellent script created by Quentin Tarantino. The movie is fast-paced, soaked in violence and has some moments of real humour. The characters of Elliot Blitzer and Floyd provide many of the comic elements. The Q&A scene is one of the highlights of this film. It has some hilarious dialogue and is acted superbly by Chris Walken and Dennis Hopper. Walken plays the part of Mafia mobster Vince Coccotti and looks like evil incarnate. Furthermore, Christian Slater & Patricia Arquette play the lead roles of a lovestruck couple on the run and in peril very well. The notion of Clarence being inspired by the voice of Elvis in True Romance also functions finely. We even have Tony Soprano or should I say Virgil a mafia hitman played by James Gandolfini, thrown in to further spice things up. Chris Penn returns to team up with Tarantino again as Officer Dimes, having played the part of Nice Guy Eddie in Reservoir Dogs. The Special Edition Dvd is crammed with specials to complete the package. The 3 commentaries accompanying this dvd are all interesting to watch, you have a featurette, trailers,Tarantino's alternate ending, aswell as many deleted scenes. True romance doesn't disappoint and neither does the dvd,top marks.
