When a writing assignment lands journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and sidekick Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) in Las Vegas, they decide to make it the ultimate business trip. But before long, business is forgotten and trip has become the key word. Fuelled by a suitcase full of mind-bending pharmaceuticals, Duke and Gonzo set off on a fast and furious ride through nonstop neon surreal surroundings and a crew of the craziest characters ever. But no matter where misadventure leads them, Duke and Gonzo discover that sometimes going too far is the only way to go.

Brilliant - Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
15/02/2009

Thought by many to be impossible to film, Terry Gilliam manages to deliver an excellent adaptation of Thompson's book. Whilst a real fan of Gilliam's previous work, this film was the first for me to highlight what Depp could do as an actor, he's also well supported here in an early role from Del Toro.

The distinctive images of the book and the imagination of the director are well matched. There are plenty of standout and memorable moments. Throw in some laughable moments and you have the ideal Las Vegas experience.
