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

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 .

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.

Sid and Nancy is a very punk film. Shot in a very low-tech, rather shambolic style, it begins (in Sunset Blvd. style) with a dead person and then tells the story of how they got there.
The dead woman is Nancy Spungen, paramour of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious (Gary Oldman). It's clearly a great performance by Oldman in a breakthrough role in his career, but the character he is portraying is shown to have no talent, no musical ability, no virtues whatsoever except a somewhat greater mastery than most of punk's aggressive swagger.
What follows is a difficult piece to assess, because it is a ruthless, efficient character assassination of the central pair. It is arguably a mark of the success of the film that they are shown to have nothing notable or interesting about them, and are merely loathsome individuals with very mundane, everyday flaws. However, it does make you question why you did or would want to spend 112 minutes looking at them.
I am broadly a fan of the punk music style, but this is a lot more about the punk ethos than punk music. It fizzes with passive-aggressiveness which it directs primarily at its subjects, sneering viciously at their weaknesses and failings. I suppose that exactly like it's subject, the film is brutally passive-aggressive, a bit pointless, a bit self-indulgent, self-destructive and very, very punk.

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.

Brilliant, brilliant film. Gary is terrific as Sid Vicious. And the actor playing Johhny Rotten is great too; looks and acts just like him!! Very sad, very violent and lots of drug abuse and strong language. But don't let that put you off. Terrific film.

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.

If you wanted to show someone how drug addiction drags people down to an horrendous exsistance(if that's what you can call it) show them this. The scene when Did and Nancy are laid in bed totally out of it is just heartbreaking. The acting is excellent, and thoughtfully potryed. So very,very sad.
