Movies Worth Watching: Action - True Romance
This is not a movie about love. Unless you love pure awesome, in which case you won't be disappointed. This movie gets a lot of queues from Bonnie and Clyde, but takes a different direction... rather than 'anti-hero's' the characters remain more neutral... so it lets you just like them for them.
It's a great action/thriller/comedy (with a few hints of romance). I love this movie, and I'm very surprised at the number of people who haven't seen it.. It's directed by the guy who gave us Top Gun, and features Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, Samuel L Jackson, James Goldofini (Tony Sorprano), Val Kilmer... just to name a few. But I really like the acting from the two leads, (Christian Slater, Patricia Arquett) who are relatively unknown compared to their cast mates.
It's got a solid story, and it keeps you interested throughout. Give it a shot!
