This weekend marks the release of Shane Black’s new film The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe as a law enforcement duo investigating a missing persons case. It also sees Black return to his roots, having rose to prominence in 1987 with his buddy cop action comedy Lethal Weapon. That film would serve as a progenitor for other films centred around the friendships of law men, which included The Last Boy Scout and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. When it comes to films of this ilk, Black is the undisputed king, but he’s not the only one responsible for giving us some gems throughout the years. This list recommends some of that are well worth your time.
