Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Critics Consensus

Visually creative, but also aimless, repetitive, and devoid of character development.

Movie Info

Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) drive a red convertible across the Mojave desert to Las Vegas with a suitcase full of drugs to cover a motorcycle race. As their consumption of drugs increases at an alarming rate, the stoned duo trash their hotel room and fear legal repercussions. Duke begins to drive back to L.A., but after an odd run-in with a cop (Gary Busey), he returns to Sin City and continues his wild drug binge.

Audience Reviews for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

  • Sep 25, 2016
    A retrospective of early 1970's drug culture in North America in the most stylish way possible.

    It's visually appealing and has Depp and Del Toro at their craziest, however that's all that is carrying the film. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is wildly senseless and the plot is just as hallucinating as the symptoms of this drug-induced tirade. 2/5

    mild humour and some witticisms. Not much else going on though. along with time bandits another bit of Terry Gilliam poop. Never thought I'd see Benecio Del Toro looking like Colonel Gadaffi.

    The cult film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a dark comedy from writer/director Terry Gilliam that's overly bizarre and incoherent. Two hippies, a journalist and a lawyer, go to Vas Vegas where they get stoned, tear up hotels, and roust the locals. Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro lead the cast and give some really interesting performances. However, the story goes nowhere and doesn't have any point to it; which wouldn't be that bad if it was a fun journey, but it's not. While there are some entertaining elements and a creative visual style, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas ends up being a bad trip.
