    The Nice Guys 2016

    Whoever makes trailers in Hollywood needs to go away. On the one hand, the trailer for this film did its job. It successfully convinced me to see the film. The downside, of course, is that very nearly all of the best moments of the film are undercut by having been prominently featured in the trailer.

    Sort of like mashing together The Exorcist, Poltergeist, Samurai Cop, any Sho Kosugi movie, Flashdance, and Tron.

    So, awesome, obviously.

    Even without having ever read the comic, I somehow feel that I can assure any fan that this is the best adaptation they will ever hope to see. The action is great, the conceit is superb, and it doesn't try to put on airs or be something it isn't. It's just a great action film, with some great characters.

    Removed a star because, let's face it, that helmet is just a tad too big for Urban's head. That or his…
