The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★½

A try-hard Long Goodbye that I simply couldn't care for. Jokes fall flat and the characters are boring. I guess Russel Crowe was good. Ryan goslings ok. In the context that it was released, I can see how others saw this film as a hearty action flick amidst the sea of shitty blockbusters -- hence the number of high ratings. However in retrospect The Nice Guys is a very mediocre, B-movie-esque film that can barely muster a chuckle or two.
