I’m going to be honest, I didn’t really understand the movie and I’m having a very hard time with summarizing this movie so here’s IMDb’s description: A mismatched pair of private eyes investigate the apparent suicide of a porn star in 1970s Los Angeles.
Well… no, this was not a movie for me. I’m just going to put it out there straight away… this was a bloody messy story and I didn’t really like it. I couldn’t see a coherent storyline and I had a hard time understanding who the villain was and why people were trying to kill a girl, please just leave her alone. I just couldn’t see any motive and that really made the whole movie confusing and bad. I also thought there would be some comedy in this movie but I must say that it was also lacking that.
Although, I can’t just trash talk this movie. Both Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling did a really good job and was truly the two highlights of the movie. If it wasn’t for them I would probably have hated the movie (more than I already do). I do however also want to say that The Nice Guys had some eventful and interesting moments. Unfortunately the bad things were outshining the good ones and I therefore didn’t enjoy the movie. Well, not every movie can be great and for everyone. This movie wasn’t really my cup of tea sadly, but it might be yours!
