Did You Know?


According to the DVD commentary the roles that Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett play in the movie are almost reversed in real life. Gavilan (Ford) is a good shot and almost a stunt driver. Calden is a lousy shot and driver. In reality Ford does not like guns and is a very poor shot at best while Hartnett is a very good marksman, having been through actor basic training for two other movies (Pearl Harbor (2001), Black Hawk Down (2001)) twice. Hartnett on the other hand does not like to drive while Ford is, according to Ron Shelton, "...a maniac behind the steering wheel". See more »

So many people have missed the point
16 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Anyone who has seen this movie and commented on it as a serious action film should be shot.

From the very start it is fairly obvious it crosses the cheese line into a parody. From the totally pointless/unrelated cheesy opening scene of HF on a shooting range, the lake chase scene, the whole buddy buddy chemistry (or total deliberate lack thereof) to the non stop annoying phone ringing or maybe the complete lack of an interesting plot? Some of these should have given away to most people the real intentions of this film.

The 'love' scene with Harrison Ford should be the last clue to anyone blind enough, that this is really not to be taken seriously and can be considered made specially for Mystery Science Theatre.

The film is called 'Hollywood Homicide', I believe, so titled as to ruffle some Hollywood feathers with the notion that Hollywood has been killed by the never ending rain of terrible buddy cop movies. The real joke is that some suit somewhere probably OK'd this as a real action movie.

In fact, the funniest thing is that some people took it seriously and enjoyed it as a serious action movie.

The chases are deliberately over the top lame (I mean really, really bad), the dialogue is so silly and pointless it just makes you laugh, the character development is totally non-existant, the cliches flow non-stop, the whole side plot of internal affairs is placed there because it's in every buddy cop movie, etc, etc. How anyone took this movie as a serious action film is beyond me.

I give it 6/10 because, it's hilarious in places (in a MST kind of way), I agree with their intentions (THE COP FILMS MUST END!!!). Just please, don't take it anything more than a parody.
