Quick witted and fast paced - Not at all what I expected
I was lucky enough to see a preview of Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang at a 'mystery' film showing at the Rivoli Cinemas in Melbourne recently.
I really don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting to enjoy the film as throughly as I did.
The film centers around Harry (Robert Downey Jnr) a petty thief who while escapes into an audition for a new detective movie. After an amusing audition, he's whisked of the bright lights and parties of LA.
I won't go too much into the story because to give any of it away would take away from the unpredictable nature of the film. Worth seeing just for Val Kilmer's Gay Perry!
