Yikes! Not even Die Hard Brucie fans will like this!
20 August 2017 | by Khun Kru MarkSee all my reviews

I bloody love Bruce Willis... always have liked him since he was the silly and annoying David Allison on Moonlighting. The guy's got moxie!

But this is horrible. An annoying clown, Thomas Middleditch, narrates his way through the movie because we're too stupid to figure it out on our own. Every time this tosser appears on screen or says anything I just want to punch him in the face. Why he's even there at all is beyond me... unless it's to make everyone else look good!

Bruce Willis and John Goodman look bored. They have clearly been blackmailed into doing this crap-fest. Either that or the money was worth sacrificing their dignity for.

I hope Bruce finds an interest in making good movies again. The bloke is a talented comedy actor... but he's also been coming across like a burned out, lazy, spoiled git in the last few years.

As for the movie itself... the (alleged) comedy is forced and stilted. The characters are dull and difficult to engage with. Bruce naked skateboarding on a busy street isn't funny. It should be, but the ham-fisted direction destroys it.

Bruce looks like he's following the Robert De Niro school of acting career trajectories... make some classic stuff when you're young and ride the wave for as long as you can!
