true-romance-posterPlot: Clarence and Alabama are newlyweds who acquire an unexpected wedding present. Unknown to the blissfully happy couple, ruthless gangsters are on their tail, determined to reclaim their lost property.  Directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino…starring Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, Saumel L. Jackson and James Gandolfini.

6a00cdf7e37f6d094f00cd970811044cd5-500piI heard about this film last year whilst in Florence in my film class…we were all arguing about whether Pulp Fiction was the best Tarantino film (which I obviously thought it was) and someone mentioned True Romance.  I had vaguely heard of it before, but knew nothing about it.  In fact, I didn’t even know Tarantino had written films and not directed…so I was eager to check this one out, especially with that stella cast!

I LOVED the first half of the film, and I enjoyed the second half.  Basically because the second half of the film was what most Tarantinos are…bloodshed.  Overall though it was really fun and definitely worth watching.  I think this would be a great date movie because there is romance and violence.

true_romance_pic_01I recommend this film for mostly men, but also women who like action films…ages 16+ and who have a strong stomach/have liked atleast Pulp Fiction or any Tarantino film in the past.

I give this film 4/5 stars.
