Co-starring Golden Globe-nominee Tom Sizemore ("Black Hawk Down," "Red Planet") and comedian Rodney Dangerfield ("Little Nicky," "Back to School") in a chillingly serious role. Time Magazine calls this film "explosive... delirious, daredevil fun." Newsweek says it's "flabbergasting, funny, enlightening, brilliantly nightmarish.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As a satirist, [Stone's] an elephant ballerina.
Fresh: This is one of my all time favorite movies, and it put Oliver Stone on my list of 'Best Directors Ever,' right along with Stanley [Kubrick].
Rotten: The main problem with Killers...is that it degenerates into the very thing it criticizes.
Fresh: Seeing this movie once is not enough. The first time is for the visceral experience, the second time is for the meaning.
Just another confused vision of two losers in a codependent downward spiral with not even a hint of redemption. Stone's choices of visual devices is possibly worse than the choices of the losers...i.e....not one of Stone's more memorable flicks.
natural born killers is a great film, and the only way to see it is the director's cut in all of its gory glory
READ THE TARANTINO SCREENPLAY
I wouldn't even consider myself a Tarantino fan, but I had the privilege of reading his original screenplay "Natural Born Killers". It is one of the best scripts I've ever read. Oliver Stone took a masterpiece in writing and completely demolished it. Still high off his "The Doors" film, he attempted to make this some combination of that and incorporate his silly JFK-style of fast cutting between color and monochromatic, with different perspectives -- none of which help drive the story. It's just Oliver Stone hubris.
The only "Natural Born Killer" here is Oliver Stone -- he murdered a great script. They should bury the body.
