CHEMISTRY. This movie's got it. Kilmer and Downey Jr. riff off each other so fast and so frequently you barely have time to catch your breath between laughs, and yet all the rich, wry, witty dialogue is spoken with a succinct degree of conversational realism. Monaghan has serious ability too; I think she's generally been wasted on dry roles since this film.
Muito simpático e tem uma embalagem bem interessante, mas se estrutura mais empiadinhas do que nas referências que faz ao noir e as coisas saem menos interessantes do que se vende. Shane Black fez uma refilmagem não-noir em “Dois Caras Legais”.
It has a Bond-ian title, noir-ish plot, unorthodox narrative, and it's hell of a fun. very cool debut for Shane Black, and equally great performances by the charismatics Downey Jr and Val Kilmer and the sexy Michelle Monaghan.
