I think this classic Tony Scott actioner with Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans just gets better and better when it gets older. I mean the film is nearly 30 years old and I have seen it at least a dozen of times and yet it managed to entertain me and fully packed Cinemadrome screening!It is written by Shane Black and I have to admit that this is Shane Black at his shaneblackest. The jokes are constant and witty and Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans make a great onscreen buddy couple. Not to mention great cavalcade of bad guys. If 80’s and 90’s action is your cup of tea, this is definitely something you need to see!
You know, for a dancer, he is one hell of a detective.
Written by Shane Black and directed by Tony Scott, it’s not the biggest surprise in the world to find that “The Last Boy Scout” is full of high octane action and serious one liners. Plot has Bruce Willis as a private detective whose protected female witness (Halle Berry) is murdered, prompting him and the victim’s boyfriend – a disgraced gridiron star (Damon Wayans) – to investigate the crime together and all roads lead to the higher echelons of American Football.
There’s shades of “Die Hard” here, but really it’s unfair to simply put it in the cash in on an action classic genre. Anyone who knows Shane Black’s career will know that plot is secondary to action and dialogue, more so when Tony Scott is on directing duties. This may actually be Black’s most under appreciated literary work (though it was a box office hit), his buddy buddy formula, that was so brilliantly realised with “Lethal Weapon”, really shines here – making it Wayans’ best work and Willis’ most laconic.
It’s all a bit blokey, meaning that unless the girls watching are in it for the stars alone, they are sure to be disappointed by the machismo washing over the female characters of the piece. But this is electrifying stuff, both visually and orally. It’s fun and thrilling, so strap yourself in and enjoy the ride. 8/10
Give me four million bucks…
Give me four million bucks to either pay Stephen Spielberg to direct or Shane Black to write a screenplay and there would be no contest. I’d send Spielberg to the corner store to buy some Twizzlers and I’d pay Black to produce dialogue – four million bucks and worth every penny.
It took a long time for me to get around to viewing ‘The Last Boy Scout.’ In the meantime, there was ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang’ and ‘The Nice Guys.’ Here I am again, watching cool cool guys spout cool cool dialogue – and I find out it’s a Shane Black script. Why did it take me this long to see this movie?
‘Water’s wet, the sky is blue, and I’m still in love with my wife.’ That’s just one line that comes to mind. I barely remember the actress who played the wife in this film – but even I could see that Willis’ character would have put a bullet in that closet door!
‘Alex the pediatrician.’ What does that mean? We find out later, and then Joe’s (Willis’) reaction to the explanation is perfect. Thousands of theater-goers thought, ‘Hmmm. I would have said the same thing.’
Long may Shane Black write scripts that make us smile, keep the adrenaline level high of the characters AND the audience, and spin improbable stories that usually have cars flying through the air.
Highly enjoyable 90’s foul mouthed violent comedy action thriller.
The Last Boy Scout is set in Los Angeles where Joe Hallenebeck (Bruce Willis) works as a private detective, Joe gets a call from his best friend & fellow private detective Mike Matthews (Bruce McGill) offering him a job protecting a stripper named Cory (Halle Berry). Later that morning Joe discovers that Mike is having an affair with his wife Sarah (Chelsea Field) but still accepts the job since he needs the cash, while keeping an eye on Cory he is attacked & knocked out & Cory is shot dead in front of her ex pro-football player boyfriend Jimmy Dix (Damon Wayans). Affter being let go by the cops Joe & Jimmy team up to find out the truth behind Cory’s murder & they discover a plot to legalise sports gambling & an attempt to assassinate a US senator. Up to their necks in trouble with people trying to kill them left, right & center as well as the cops after them Joe & Jimmy decide to save the day & take the bad guy’s down…
Directed by Tony Scott I will openly & freely admit that I have a real soft spot for The Last Boy Scout, I just think it’s almost perfect at what it sets out to do & I find it a very entertaining film to just sit down & watch. I must have seen The Last Boy Scout a dozen times or so over the years & it never fails to entertain or make me laugh & there’s not many films out there I can say that about, for instance I recently saw Face/Off (1997) again for the first time in years & I was extremely disappointed by how dull it was & that it just wasn’t anywhere near as good I remembered it but watching The Last Boy Scout again last night it was definitely every bit as good as I remember it from when I first saw it all those years ago. There are several reasons why I like The Last Boy Scout so much, for a start it’s one of those infinitely quotable films full of filthy foul mouth one-liners that are genuinely funny & never fail to at least raise a smile. The action is very violent & at times maybe a little too much emphasis is given on hurting people but the set-pieces which include car chases, shoot-outs, fights & explosions are fun & varied enough to stand out. The plot is a little weak & the main story about a corrupt senator & a businessman trying to legalise gambling is a bit lacklustre but the character’s really make it work. Joe Hallenbeck the down on his luck, bitter & cynical detective is great as the hero, he has his flaws but that’s good & you do end up really liking the guy by the end of the flick while the Jimmy Dix character is a more clichéd black partner to bounce jokes off type of guy but he holds his own & he too also becomes rather likable by the end although he never seems that upset about witnessing the love of his life Cory get viciously gunned down in front of him. The Last Boy Scout is a mix of some of the best bits & ideas from classic action flicks like Beverly Hills Cop (1984), Lethal Weapon (1987) & Die Hard (1988) but that’s no bad thing, I mean if your going to steal you might as well steal from the best, right? The bad guy’s aren’t that good or overly memorable but nothings perfect I suppose.
The films pace is a little slow to start with but the funny one-liners come thick & fast to keep one entertained. The violence is often excessive & there’s a lot of killing, punching & general hurting of people. The action scenes are fairly well done although I am not sure how a car ends up falling straight down into a pool when it clearly has forward momentum as it launched itself off the roof of a house. The film is full of profanity & bad language so if you don’t like swearing The Last Boy Scout is not the film for you although I never got the impression that it was swearing for the sake of swearing & most of the profanity is very funny. Apparently the original script was quite different as the entire last third of the film was to be set on water & Hallenbeck’s grudge again the senator (who was the President in the original script) was different & the senator’s son Louis (who isn’t even in the final shooting script) was to be one of the main villains.
Obviously blessed with a decent budget the production values are high & it’s well made. Apparently music composer Michael Kamen hated The Last Boy Scout when he first saw it & only wrote & provided the score for it because of his personal friendship with Bruce Willis & producer Joel Silver. Bruce Willis is a likable guy & he was just born to lay these foul mouthed wisecracking hero types & puts in a great performance here while his buddy buddy partner Damon Wayans does fine too although I think a young Danielle Harris is also great as Joe’s foul mouth daughter with an attitude.
The Last Boy Scout is a real guilty pleasure from the 90’s that holds up extremely well even today, it’s go some great action, some hilarious one-liners that are guaranteed to have you quoting them to your mates & Bruce Willis probably the best action film star of recent times & any film that kills off the supremely untalented Halle Berry has got something going for it.
