4.0 out of 5 stars A match made in hell 27 Jan 2013
Detective Mac Stern (Gene Hackman) has a reputation for petty eccentricities. He is a hard-bitten cop with an informal attitude toward his work. Some feel that he is overly fond of his vintage car and his pet cat, but when Stern is assigned to a murder case he is teamed with a new partner, Ellis Fielding (Dan Aykroyd), who redefines the meaning of eccentric.

Throw the two of them together for a bizarre case involving a pornographic movie featuring Adolf Hitler as the star, and what do you have? 'Loose Cannons'.

Fielding is a brilliant detective, a man with a keen analytical mind. Unfortunately he doesn't react well under pressure. Put him in a violent situation (a car chase, a gunfight, a brawl) and he'll freak-out, doing a mile-a-minute stream of imitations and quotes. Stern soon realises Fielding suffers from a multiple-personality disorder and as a result was institutionalised in a Benedictine monastery.

They must protect a porno film king who is a chief witness in a murder case. After they discover they are being trailed by Israeli secret agents, Neo-Nazis, and the FBI. They learn their murder case involves a former buddy of Hitler's who wants to be West Germany's next Chancellor.

The film is seasoned with comedy and violence as the pair unravels the crime and brings the criminals to justice.

The film is a very interesting combination of action, comedy and drama, with a pre-requisite 80's happy ending. It veers from wacky comedy, to psychological drama, to gun-toting action, sometimes within the same scene.

Either way, I liked this movie, particularly the scenes involving Dan Aykroyd's psychotic episodes, and Dom DeLuise's supporting role. Although I think Gene Hackman's character could have been developed further.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Last of the 80s Comedy cop films. 5 July 2011
By j.r
Loose Cannons is not a completely mad Dan Akroyd Film comedy like The Blues Brothers or Dragnet but is instead a proper cop film that just happens to have a very silly plot and script and features two funny men, Dan Akroyd and Dom Deluise. Loose Cannons lead actor is Gene Hackman who seems to be have a good time amonst the gun fire, explosions and comedy. If you enjoyed 48hrs, StakeOut, Beverly Hills Cop and the more recent The Other Guys then you should like Loose Cannons.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just one minor point 11 Jun 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a good film, but it's a German dub! Shame Amazon neglected to mention that as it would have been nice to know.
