    ★★★

    Some good funny stuff, a few sensual/comedic moments
    Some winking to audience

    Terrible all the way around. Casting/performances uniformally bad. 70s details stale and off. Writing tired and unfunny. Action scenes edited more like their contemporaries which means fast cuts and very little choreography/blocking. Just a tedious slog. Only decent performance was from Russell Crowe. How do you cast Keith David and underutilize him? Clearly Shane Black thought he was making his Chinatown (a movie about 70s LA conspiracy made in 2016) but can you imagine anything more stale than a porn cover up plot in a period noir piece? Give me a break! There were a few funny lines - that's it.
