RIP Richard Donner. A super embarrassing first time watch for me. I was expecting a fun buddy cop action flick- but it's also super dark and bleak at times.
And it has that crazy 80's (drug fueled?) energy to it- that third act especially. Plus the engaging chemistry of the two leads make it a must watch.
Very deserving of its status as one of the best action films of the decade.
Not sure why it took me this long…
