Bruce Willis's awful, 1991 vanity piece is an abuse of audience goodwill and a waste of a good cast and director (Michael Lehmann of Heathers). The story of Hudson Hawk, cowritten by Willis, concerns a cat burglar pressured into stealing precious art, including some from the Vatican. But the script is just a convenience upon which Willis piles his vaguely boorish brand of hip irony, assuming his audience will stay with him every step of the way. Certain, self-congratulatory scenes induce cringing--Willis and Danny Aiello, for instance, sing "Side by Side" (to brassy accompaniment on the soundtrack) every time they're working a job--but the overall effect is more irritating and baffling. Keep a good thought for Willis (an underrated actor better than the summer junk we usually see him in) by checking out his superior work in Pulp Fiction and his small but memorable role in Billy Bathgate. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Cat burglar Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) is released from prison and immediately persuaded (by his parole officer amongst others) to steal a Leonardo da Vinci statuette from an auction house. He succeeds, but the newspapers report the theft a failure, and that the auction will go ahead as scheduled. A bizarre mixture of crime caper hi-jinx, sci-fi fantasy and song-and-dance, the film was a big-budget, box office flop.

5.0 out of 5 stars This film was a turkey. One word- WHY?! 11 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Bruce Willis has such an easy wit and charm he is effortlessly sexy with a screen presence yet to be topped and this film shows off his natural talent to grip the audience in his sparkling performance. Ok, so the film is a little surreal in places but the storyline and acting abilities are hard to fault in my opinion. Just because a film goes against the same formulaic tosh that is chucked out year after year and dares to be innovative doesn't mean it is too risky to be any good. This movie is a slice of pure fairytale fantasy that whisks you up in it's glorious storybook land leaving you with that unmistakeable beaming grin of a person thrilled by it's charming beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hat conventions in July... 28 Feb 2014
Hudson Hawk has just been released from ten years of prison and is planning to spend the rest of his life honestly.

But then a crazy couple called the Mayflowers blackmail him to steal some of the works of Leonardo da Vinci, as they carry the secret to mass fortune.

If he refuses, they threaten to kill his friend Tommy....

First thing you need to know about this movie is if you don't like Bruce Wilis in smirk mode turned up to eleven, you will hate this.

If you want one of the most daring, original summer blockbusters ever made, then this is for you.

The reason that this is original, is because it was one of the big releases in 1991 behind T2 and Robin Hood, and it has one of the strangest narratives I have ever seen.

And I fell in love with he film because I just went with it. Yes there is cheesy singing and people falling from one building and landing in another, but isn't this a Bruce Willis vanity product?.

apart from the fashion, Haircuts and earrings, the film has aged well, and even though the jokes are stale, you cannot help but to sit and watch it in all it's entirety.

I've yet to meet anyone else who actually likes this film (or admit to it), but it's fun, over the top and just tongue in cheek all the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whats wrong with it????? 21 April 2004
I find it really ironic that every review on here praises the effeorts ofBruse's pet project, all with exception of Amazon itself. For once thesaying 'The customer is always right' is accually true for once.
Thefilm is fun, slick and as an undenialble charm to it that will have yousinging 'side by side' every morning in the shower.
In the latest edition of Empire this film was rated as one of the top tenfilms that was wrongly slated by the critics. The kind of film that mostlove but are made to think they shouldnt.
In four simple words, I sayto all those critics, 'Whats wrong with it?'

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce Willis's finest hour 24 Feb 2006
This is by far Bruce's best film where ok he plays himself as a catburglar but its fun its supposed to be fun that is what the critics missed , i know its amazing that American critics may not get sarcasm or satire but there you go it happened .Treat it as a comedy/thriller watch it with friends , drink beer and enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for young children? 2 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great film and great laugh, from start to end? Willis at his best? Spoilt as a family film, by constant bad language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite enjoyable 22 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A somewhat wacky film allowing Bruce Willis to display his quirky humourous side.
Not an Oscar winner but a good fun film worth watching to kill a couple of hours.
What more do you want ?
