Really wish this movie was good
21 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Bruce Willis with most famous for his Die Hard series and probably one of the best action hero in cinema history but in the past few years he kinda stuck with a bunch of horrible action movie which really upset me cause i used to be his fan.When i first heard about a movie called Once Upon a Time in Venice staring Bruce Willis with a very talented cast i though damn this movie might be good comeback for Bruce but the result is..... not that great.It may not as bad as some of his previous work i give you that it still not enough to bring Bruce back from the hole.Describe as a action comedy movie with a run time about 1h- 34min but in fact it a slow burn movie mainly about Bruce as a private detective(a very shitty one) solving crime around Venice until his dog get kidnap by a local drug dealer played by Jason Momoa(Yeah Aquaman himself).The movie does have some good sense of humor but sometime it feel force as hell.For the action part it not that much only near the end but it very unsatisfied and the terrible ending just add more bad taste in my mouth.It not a good movie in any mean but if you a Bruce Willis fan you can check it out
