Anybody who talks about True Romance has to start with the writing. It's dazzling. In scene after scene, Tarantino surprises the audience even while coming up with dialogue that rings much more true than anything you could have anticipated. [10 Sept 1993]

These gun-crazy, lust-loopy kids on the run are irresistible in the best crime rush since “GoodFellas.” [10 Sept 1993]

A vibrant, grisly, gleefully amoral road movie. [10 Sept 1993, p.C5]

A stupid, stylized road picture. [10 Sept 1993]
