Product description

Product Description

Tony Scott directs this violent crime thriller written by Quentin Tarantino. Clarence (Christian Slater) is a kung fu loving guy whose boss buys him a night with a hooker, Alabama (Patricia Arquette). The two fall in love and get married the next day. However, Alabama's pimp Drexel (Gary Oldman) stands in their way, and so Clarence takes it upon himself to wipe Drexel out. In the process, he unwittingly picks up a suitcase full of uncut cocaine that Drexel has stolen from the Irish Mob. The young lovers hightail it across the country to LA, hoping to sell the coke to a movie producer, but the Mafia and the cops are hot on their tail... The cast also includes Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, Val Kilmer and Samuel L. Jackson.

From Amazon.co.uk

It was directed with energetic skill by Top Gun Tony Scott, but t his breathtaking 1993 thriller (think of it as an adolescent crime fantasy on steroids) has Quentin Tarantino written all over it. True Romance is really part of a loose trilogy that includes Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, with a crackling Tarantino screenplay that rides a fine line between raucous comedy and violent excess. Christian Slater plays Clarence, the comic-book lover who meets a beguiling prostitute named Alabama (Patricia Arquette), confronts her vicious pimp (Gary Oldman), and embarks on a cross-country odyssey with $5 million worth of Mafia cocaine. Mayhem ensues, culminating in a favourite Tarantino climax--the "Mexican standoff"--in which a roomful of guys are pointing guns at each other, waiting to see who shoots first. Brutal, profane, and totally outrageous, True Romance is not for everyone, but with a supporting cast that includes Dennis Hopper, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, and Val Kilmer (as the ghost of Elvis!), you can be sure this movie will never be boring. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

This is an awesome film about ''Love conquers all''. It always has been, and always will be one of my favourite films. If you haven't seen it, really, you must.

It features amazing performances by some of the best actors around (Walken, Pitt, Oldman,Hopper) and is written, if not directed by Tarantino. In my opinion it's his best story. Call me sentimental or a romantic but the film theme of love, wins my heart every time (which is why I'm such a fan of another little known Tarantino Gem - Killing Zoe: Killing Zoe [DVD] [1994]). I hope one day I'm lucky enough to meet a girl as sweet, loyal and simple as Alabama.

But don't let the 'love' put you off - there's plenty of drugs and guns for everyone. I think, if your girlfriend's pestering you and wants to watch some soppy rom-com on your anniversary or something, stick this on. It'll keep you both happy.

This is Tarantino's first film - and I find it quite interesting to watch with that in mind too. You can really see what he had in mind with it, with certain lines and a style of writing which makes much more sense now we know who Tarantino is: all the talk of the Sonny Cheeba films at the start for instance... Anyway, a great film which everyone must see, and having owned 3 or 4 copies of this on various formats over the years, I can say that this Blu Ray is the perfect format for you to see it on.

Full marks - 10/10. Using a slightly modified turn of phrase from the film might be best here: It's so cool, it's so cool, it's so cool.
