One Of The Best Silly Boy Films Ever
on 11 March 2013
Let me start by saying that when I say silly, don't get me wrong; this film is really well-made in a lot of parts, but it's quite corny and it's because it's dated as oppose to intentional, but that's okay. It's great actually, because it gives such a great dimension to the whole movie: it's a great boy film which you can just watch at any time and your mood will be heightened!
Tommy Lee Jones is Sam Quint, a Freelance Operative who is hired by the Government to obtain a cassette with evidence against federal agents on topical issues such as teaxes and everything else which is a bit of a laugh. The opening scene will totally break the ice and make you realise you're in for a good ride( come to think of it, it may be one of the best opening scenes to a film ever). The action is great though the plot is corny but I won't spoil it, and it's nice to see Tommy Lee Jones playing the lead as a law enforcement officer like this a bit earlier on in his career, and not jut seeing him as a tired old sheriff or something. You'll laugh, you'll question it, but you'll finish it off thinking that you'll watch it next time you're in a poor mood.
