Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

In giving 1991's The Last Boy Scout a three-star review, critic Roger Ebert was properly performing his duty as an objective reporter, praising the filmmakers' professional skill while observing that "the only consistent theme of the film is its hatred of women". For the purposes of this capsule review, there's no such obligation to level-headed fairness; the simple truth is, this ultraviolent, action-packed vehicle for Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans is disgustingly rotten to the core. Not only is it fuelled by a bitter and spiteful attitude toward women, it's also the kind of profanely vulgar movie that doesn't hesitate to put foul-mouthed children in the path of vicious thugs and potentially deadly situations. Willis plays an ex-secret service agent turned private detective who is hired to protect a stripper (Halle Berry) and then teams up with the stripper's boyfriend (Wayans), a disgraced NFL star who was kicked out of football for gambling. They catch on to a criminal plot leading all the way up to a corrupt football team owner who wants to legalise gambling on pro football. Willis and Wayans get in and out of all sorts of trouble along the way, and naturally there are plenty of explosions to go along with the brutal beatings, gunfire and constant cussing. Shane Black (of Lethal Weapon infamy) set a Hollywood record (since broken, several times) for the sale price of his slick but vile screenplay and Top Gun director Tony Scott handles the action with his trademark gloss and high-impact style. But, seriously, is this a movie that anyone could bear to watch twice? --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Friday night's a great night for football 4 Nov 2010
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Back in 1991 there was still only one way that studios could sell Bruce Willis and that was as various incarnations of his Die Hard hero. Even Eddie (Hudson) Hawkins had similarities to John McClane. Joe Hallenbeck is a sort of mix between McClane and a stereotypical hardboiled private eye. Watching him mumble and grunt through various near-deaths and close shaves makes for much fun.

As a private dick Hallenbeck scrounges for work wherever he can find it. So he takes up a job protecting a stripper named Cory and soon finds himself in a lot of trouble with the men who are controlling Pro Football. Bad guys are trying to get him left and right, and his bratty 13-year-old daughter tagging along doesn't help much.

Tony Scott's style of direction is best suited to this type of action flick. The flashy, exotic editing and cinematography techniques lend a lot to the witty script and compliment the seedy back alleyways and pretty Los Angeles vistas. Shane Black has also written dozens of one-liners and riddled the script with funny dialogue and exciting situations. It's no surprise that this was once the most expensive script ever sold in Hollywood.

Some people say that this film is too violent and misogynist but I honestly cannot understand what they are talking about. I guess it was just a little out of the norm back in 1991. But still the tone of the film is so light and enjoyable you begin to wonder how this never made up for it. Check it out for yourself and I am sure that you will enjoy.

The Blu Ray is in 1080p 2.40:1 widescreen with lossless DTS HD-MA sound. I can confirm that that it is a HUGE step up in quality from the horrid DVD edition. Well worth the upgrade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Das Film ist wunderbar! 2 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Joe Hallenbeck was one of the country's top Secret Service agents. Unfortunately, for him Joe had a run-in with a grubby politician. One set-up later and Hallenbeck had lost his career, his income, the whole lot but his gun. James Dix was a star quarterback for the L.A. Stallions. Again an unfortunate thing happened, as Jimmy was barred from football when he was caught betting on the games and was accused of shaving points. What Hallenbeck and Dix have in common is that their lives have reached an unsurpassed low. But when Hallenbeck's client and Dix's girlfriend turn out to be the one and the same - and when she is murdered in front of their eyes - they have something else in common. An investigation into that murder which uncovers a plot involving blackmail, sleaze and a danger to the future of professional football. What the participants in this plan didn’t count on was that, the two men, emerged as a new team in the league - a team which doesn't need 11 men to take on the competition!
The intended audience is obvious as it goes along with the normal action intended audience. Also producer, Joel Silver, and screenwriter, Shane Black said "Let's make a movie that red-blooded American males age 18-34 will enjoy. We'll need some babes, some comedy, a couple big name action stars, a good explosion budget, and what the hell, let's throw in some football", when they were asked about the different conventions of the movie.
The characters in the film are of the normal conventions. Joe is a dirty, unshaven private detective. His job is to watch over an exotic dancer named Cory (Halle Barry), who is the girlfriend of Jimmy Dix. "You couldn't protect a warm cup of piss," says Jimmy to Joe, an example of this movie's great dialogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars joe hallenbeck aka "THE MAN" 12 Dec 2004
By zooey
Format:DVD
I love this film, i've always loved this film. I used to watch it on almost alternate days when i came back from school as a teenager. I used to try to copy joe hallenbeck's sardonic world weary smirk on my post-pubescent little 15yr old face, much to the chagrin of my friends. I pre-booked the rental VHS 2 weeks ahead of release and annoyed my local pharaoh's video store by going in EVERY day after school to see if it had come out yet. I love this film.
Why? Because like Bruce's Joe Hallenbeck, this film headbutts you in the face leaving your blood-spattered world reeling in bright neon colours then, as it casually limps away, delivers an effortless execution of a punchline sprinkled with a delicate garnish of poetic profanity that brings the blood you were choking on 3 seconds earlier gurgling back up your throat with gut-aching laughter. Phew, deep breath...aaaand...
I hope fellow brucephiles like moi appreciate this as THE defining Bruce Willis character. Before you bust a gut - yes, yes i know Die Hard is his classic film - but Joe Hallenbeck is his career defining character - the Willis personality pushed to the knife-edge brink of explosive perfection.
Dont belive me yet? But monsieur, let me tempt you with these delicacies:
1. On finding his best friend in his wife's bedroom closet:
"Yeah Yeah, i know - you tripped, slipped on the carpet and accidentally stuck your **** in my wife".
2. On being approached by three hatchet faced armed goons by a car parked full of dynamite:
"You girls still out? Streetlights are on"
