Some funny moments , but overall a rather boring movie
23 February 2014 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"Kuffs" is another movie from the 90's that tries very hard to be as charming and fun. The movie obviously aims at the audience that was raised on the 80's. They even haired Harold Faltermeyer (famous for "Beverly hills cop" soundtrack) to give the 80's feel to "Kuffs". Faltermeyer's music here is unfortunately a shadow of his best work ("Axel F") , just like "Kuffs" is a shadow of a really good action comedy.

There are some interesting things here. The idea of districts and private police is refreshing. The fact that movie obviously breaks the fourth wall is also something you don't see too often. Unfortunately , the movie quickly becomes a routine one –of-many-action-comedies. Christian Slater is really likable and pretty much carries the whole movie on his own. I feel sorry that the writers weren't able to give him some really dialogues and witty one liners. Why have Kuffs break the fourth wall if he doesn't have any interesting thing to say ? A waste of good idea.

The other characters seems interesting at first , but the movie never gives them enough screen time and the screenplay doesn't give them a lot to do. The story itself is a lame story about evil businessman which was done before and with a better result. The action scenes are forgettable and the movie has only small moments of good humor ( Slater fighting for life in his apartment).

For action or comedy junkies only. I give it 2/10.
