Today’s lunchtime movie matinee was Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang starring Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. I liked the way their characters, Harry and Perry, worked together… they played off each other well. Often times, their acting skills salvaged a poor scene or made an average one enjoyable.
The storyline at times attempted to be more clever than it should have, leaving it looking silly. The breaking out of character to talk directly to the viewers seemed to be a thinly veiled excuse to make up for the adage that using a narrator in a film is just an example of poor writing. Overall, the film was entertaining, just not great.
RATING 6 out of 10
