Outrageous, if not inconsistent, slapstick comedy that has its charm I suppose and is a nice, easy watch if you’re not looking for anything serious. However, I’d prefer putting on The Naked Gun if I was looking for something similar and done better. **3.0/5**
Sincere comedy caper sort of lost in translation
RELEASED IN 1991 and directed by Michael Lehmann, “Hudson Hawk” stars Bruce Willis as the titular expert cat burglar who has just been released from prison and intends on going straight, but he’s blackmailed by the eccentric Mayflower couple (Richard E. Grant & Sandra Bernhard) into stealing works of Leonardo da Vinci for a gold-making machine that will destroy the world’s economy. Danny Aiello plays Hawk’s partner and Andie MacDowell his maybe babe. James Coburn is on hand as a top CIA agent.
The film advertises right out of the gate that it’s a goofy comedy, a parody of caper/spy flicks. The creators & cast bend over backwards to amuse the audience, but there are too few lulls to catch your breath. It’s an almost constant barrage of over-the-top camp and comedy. I laughed several times, but too often I didn’t. Still, it’s a likable albeit curious throwaway comedy and should especially be worthwhile for fans of the cast. It cost an incredible $65 million (no doubt due to the costly globetrotting) and understandably flopped at the box office.
THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour, 40 minutes and was shot in California, New York, New Jersey, Italy, Vatican City, Hungary and London. WRITERS: Story by Bruce Willis & Robert Kraft; screenplay by Steven E. de Souza & Daniel Waters.
Brilliantly funny slapstick adventure.
Bruce Willis in 1991 was still John McClane and after the high octane thrills of the first two Die Hard movies, this is what audiences were expecting. But this is far more Moonlighting than Nakotomi and audience expectations were not managed and sadly Hudson Hawk bombed. It is however a brilliantly funny slapstick adventure. Hudson Hawk (Willis) gets out of prison only to be blackmailed into committing one more burglary, leading him down a rabbit hole filled with mafia, CIA, Vatican and ruthless billionaires all seeking to protect or exploit a 500 year old secret. With it’s tongue firmly in its cheek, the film runs through a series of entertaining set pieces with a dazzling array of colourful characters and a script full of music, jokes, bad language and cappuccinos. Fun from start to finish.
Catch the Hawk!
Yes, it was terribly bashed by critics. Well, what do they know? It’s too bad that in the movie industry something this original is cast aside as stupid and pointless and we’re left with such pearls that are obviously rip-offs of each other. This has action, comedy, romance, intrigue, music, madness, slapstick, all rolled into one neat bundle. I wish Bruce Willis and Michael Lehmann would be brave enough to get together and treat us to Hudson Hawk 2. I’m sure Danny and Andie would gladly come back for more Hawk, and I can only dream of the insanities and the commentaries that could be presented nowadays, on our total PC age. Politics, society, religion, the movie industry, it’s all tackled at here, and could be done again! And the lines! Wow, this movie is almost entirely quotable! Come on guys, think of a sequel! It’s not like Bruce Willis is doing any incredible movie these days…
And if you haven’t seen this because somebody told you it was a bad movie, open your mind and go watch it now! You won’t be disappointed! I guarantee you’ll be whistling “Swinging on a Star” when it’s over!
