One of the few Michael Bay films I actually enjoy.
Despite my reservations about Ryan Gosling and my abhorrence of him, I quite enjoyed this film.
I'm a big Shane Black fan and some of his dialogue is my favourite ever in film.
The Nice Guys is no exception, Russel Crowe is great in this, as is the young Angourie Rice who will be one to watch in the future I'm sure.
Gosling however, still has an awful range, the plaster cast on his arm has more depth of emotion…
Zack Snyder brings a massive blockbuster to the screen, with so many HUGE characters to cover he manages to keep everything together.
As with many tentpole films these days it could do with a little tightening of running time but I can forgive that as it kept me entertained throughout.
Ben Affleck makes a brilliant Dark Knight, he brings the right amount of world weary gravitas to a character who's been on the job for 20 years, personally I think…
Virginia Madsen is this films only saving grace for which she should gain a best supporting nod, O'Russell's awful direction, terrible framing, dodgy music choices and insistence in casting the same people in his films make this the third in a trilogy of dullness. Lawrence is worthy of the praise people lavish on her however Cooper and DeNiro coast. Oh one more thing.. Get a hammer, hit yourself in the head multiple times and shout "Don't give up on your dreams." Over and over..
