I'll see your Lethal Weapon and raise you a Die Hard...
There are chick flicks, family flicks and guy flicks and so there should be. No prizes for guessing which category this one falls into.
My favourite action movie is 'Die Hard' (the original, not the pumped up sequels), but I don't mind telling you: this one ain't far behind. There are cars, guns, chases and foul language, and you can cut the testosterone with a spade. Exactly the way it should be. And some of the funniest dialogue you'll ever hear.
Bruce Willis was made for this kind of movie, and his shambolic, wise-cracking Joe Hallenbeck is easily his best creation since John McClane. Damon Wayans, who I don't normally like, is also surprisingly good as the sidekick; and Danielle Harris must have been the envy of the 8th grade when she made this. What a script to give to a 13-year old kid!
You want culture: go see 'Amadeus'. You want thrills and fun and laughter: leave the critical faculties at home and go see this. I wish there were more like it.
