Storyline:

Delivery boy Mickey Knox falls in love with customer Mallory Wilson. He soon helps her kill her abusive father and enabling mother, beginning their macabre journey down Route 666. Their M.O.: every few miles, they attack everyone within their site, invariably leaving only one person alive to tell the tale. The two are made famous by unscrupulous reporter Wayne Gale, as they run across the countryside, pursued by the equally sadistic Jack Scagnetti. Just before the trial, a ratings-whoring interview by the same reporter who made them famous leads to pandemonium, not just within the prison itself, but nationwide. A satire of the media, public opinion, and the modern attitude toward violence.

One review

  • Let me start off by saying that the first time you see this movie you will be confused. There are metaphors randomly flashing through out random parts of the film. Once you understand what is going on, you realize that this movie is an art; another Oliver Stone master piece that almost measures up to Platoon.

    Natural Born Killers is violent and disturbing. The violent scenes are filled with unsteady camera angles and flashing between color film and black and white film. Many people have a problem understanding the purpose for creating this film, but it is quite simple, America’s obsession with violence and its influence on the media.

    Don’t go into the film expecting a great action film, be skeptical about what you see and you will enjoy it. NBK it not meant to be focused on violence, just the obsession. I fully understand why people hate this film, but I like it for the reasons people hate it. It was a great film with a great cast. Robert Downey Jr. (Wayne Gail) gives a brilliant and credible performance who represents the whole media in the world and its focuses on violence.
