When it came time to cast the film, everyone was in complete agreement about the actor they wanted for Tommy "Five-Tone." Danny Aiello and Bruce Willis had known each other for many years, dating back to a time before either had attained worldwide recognition, and 'Bruce and I had wanted to do a film together for three or four years', recalls Aiello. The actor was so enthusiastic about taking the role of Hawk's best friend and partner that he postponed the start of another film in order to join Willis and company in their globe-trotting adventures.

Any 500-year-old book would fall apart when treated as cavalierly as Hawk treats Da Vinci's notebook. See more »
Long ago, the Duke of Milan commissioned a little known artist to erect a Mammoth statue of a horse. The time was 1481... The artist was Leonardo da Vinci... The guy on the donkey's just a guy on a donkey.

The German VHS version contains several more lines of dialog, mostly from characters off-screen to make scenes funny in German. For example: When Hudson Hawk falls into the chair after he jumps from the roof of the auction house, the Butler says he collects Concorde tickets because once you get 100 "you get a stewardess for free" and Antony Mario adds that he would prefer the pilot.

This movie has no logic to it, it's as ridiculous as many Hong Kong action are and just as much fun! The audience I saw it with liked it a lot. This is not great art, but it is great B movie escapism at its finest. Richard E. Grant does a great job of chewing up the scenery as the over the top bad guy, I even liked the "Swingin' On A Star" duet between Bruce and Danny. Bruce Willis is also ultra cool as the wisecracking master thief, Hudson Hawk. And hey, how can you not love a movie with lines like, "Slurp my butt"? Anh? Ciao!
