SnoopyStyle - 14 November 2022 checking out Bruce Police detectives Bill Freeman (Bruce Willis) and Freddy Vargas (Luke Wilson) investigate a bloody crime scene with four murdered women. They find a Gasoline Alley lighter. It's the name of the tattoo place owned by Jimmy Jayne (Devon Sawa). He had talked to one of the victims during the night of the killings.
After the Bruce Willis revelation, there is some morbid curiosity in checking out this movie. He's definitely slower than his best days. When he's paired with Luke Wilson, Luke is the one doing the verbal heavy lifting. In the end, Devon Sawa is the lead. He has also lost something. He muscled up and acted down. He no longer has his boyish charms. At this point, he's best as a thug. There's no energy to his acting. Back to Willis, the last act has quite a few scenes with him actually acting. If one doesn't know his troubles, one could even think that he's just a little slower. The directing, the writing, and the other stuff are all a bit flat. The movie is trying to be hard, but it doesn't have the pacing to be exciting. In the end, Devon Sawa as the lead is more problematic than Bruce Willis losing a step.
theknownames - 1 July 2022 Shocked I say This has to be the lowest budget yet most elevated as far as visuals , setting , script really everything . No soundtrack thar I recall all shot in a way where there were no close ups . The main character has me at jump and really everyone did managed a class act . I have come to view movies much differently ( I imagine this is how it is for everyone these days )
I was raised going to movies weekly since the 70's and really only recently have I begun to take in the scope of what's happening in each . I thought this was great for what it is !
It's not ever going to hit theaters
Bruce did a string of these low budget movies , with excellent actors imo and it's been a true pleasure ! I happen to appreciate this one very much .
It's a solid 7 but considering I don't think Bruce Willis is making movies anymore the fact that he is in it and for how drawn in I was for the most of it I have to give it an 8.
