Funny Funny funny
15 August 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I don't like gore but the gore is so cartoonish here it does not interfere with the fun. This film has everything.It has the basic convoluted crime story,unbelievably funny dialogue and great characterisation. There is nothing not to like in this film.

The bad guys are well drawn and never given the outlandish lines that Tarentino gives them, they remain human, stupidly criminal and never the mere 'apes' that the police hero sees.

I was a little thrown by the ending. I don't know how we were meant to judge the detective but of course it hardly matters.

This shames Hollywood once again, just like Headhunters did. If you don't find this hilarious the fault is with you.
