Why so much hype?
Tells a fascinating and unsettling true story, and does so well, without pretending to have all the answers.
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
The movie runs out of plot and jokes well before the end of a two-hour running time, long for a light comedy.
This film really started off well and it made me laugh. However after an hour or so the story just seems to drag and the jokes follow the same formula. Ryan gosling is pretty good in this and the film does have its moments but film just seems to drag in the later stages.
One of the best, and most memorable films released in the paste few years. Outstanding performances from everyone, and spectacular writing and directing from Shane Black.
Some good laughs and wacky changes of fortune in this buddy comedy that works because Crowe and Gosling have good chemistry together. Sure there are way too many convenient coincidences in the plot and the ending goes a little over the top, but it was still fun and NOT another comic book movie, so give it a go.
I like to write reviews so I can go back and see what I thought of the movie, a little visit to past me. Lately I have noticed that I am giving high marks - a 7 for me is a decent movie maybe worth rewatching in the future. I definitely need to write down what I thought of this movie because it wasn't really worth remembering and I am sure I will forget. There was nothing really special about this buddy cop movie (or buddy detective whatever). Comparing it to ones I really like, like Lethal Weapon this one falls flat, but gets a 7 because its better than what goes for a 6 these days. It has it's entertaining moments, but found the villian was flat, the ending was meh. The only thing that really carried it was the backdrop (the 70's) and the Crowe and Gossling. That was about it. I found my attention waning after about halfway through.Lethal Weapon - way better.
