That would be the action cinema of the united states without Shane Black ? Probably something much less cool than it was in the 90’s. Because it is still to him that we must not hurt small masterpieces.
Ah bah yes, what do you want, we, we can’t do anything, we love Shane Black. Since always. Because it is when even the guy who wrote and created The lethal Weapon (before strikeout for the second episode, due to a disagreement about the twist that took the story) and who does not appear much not to have digested it attempts since then to do it again to each one of his films.
Ryan Gosling, Joel Silver and Shane Black
And it does it very well. There has to see her fantastic Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang to be convinced, or even Iron Man 3 is less a Marvel movie as a lethal Weapon with powers. And we are not even talking about The Nice Guys. Or rather, if we are going to talk about would like. Released in 2016, the film included Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in investigators, losers in the Los Angeles of the 70’s and brought together with happiness all the clichés of movies of Shane Black.
If we have loved, we must still recognize that this is the film with the most public of its author, The Nice Guys never running as far as where it should normally go. A certain chilliness in the violence and the dark side (yet inseparable from the humor and the stupidity of the situations in Black) that didn’t keep us from taking our walk and to dream of a potential suite. We are not the only ones because, from the bottom of the multiple reshoots of his The Predator (which will be released, we remind, on October 17), Shane Black has just announced microphone to Fandango that he would like to re-enlist him, too, but it was a bit complicated :
“I’ll do it without hesitation if someone gave me the money for it. We have a lot of ideas for the future. The problem is that the film does not have sufficient market at the box office. And because of this, it is complicated to be able to re-engage the two stars are very expensive, and to be able to from a suite.”
And it is a pity, because even if it is waiting for its Predator, but it worries us more and more, we crave to review the Shane Black buddy movies. In short, we want to see a Nice Guys 2. So if, for this to happen, it must be that Predator is a big success, well we will slam our RSA in the places of cinema in October. Because there are battles that deserve to be pursued in life, and that is part of it.
Go, to the right of yours
