Movie Info

In a slapstick spoof of hitmen and crime stories, the head of a security systems company (Hamid Dana) is bumped off by two gonzo exterminators (Brion James and Paul L. Smith) who have gone from stomping out pesky varmints to stomping out human targets, and one of them does so with gusto. Now the exterminators go after the partner who hired them and his blatantly obnoxious wife (Louise Lasser) and in the meantime frame a poor security guard (Reed Birney) for the murder of the company boss.

Raimi exibe a mesma energia ensandecida de Evil Dead, arrancando algumas risadas justamente graças ao volume e ao histrionismo de sua direção (e também, em parte, em função do roteiro amalucado dos irmãos Coen).

Audience Reviews for Crimewave

Written by The Coen Brothers, directed by Sam Raimi with a fantastic cast (particularly Bruce Campbell) = One of the best films ever made! A real cult classic that doesn't have the recognition it deserves!

Brion James and Paul Smith are hysterical in this very bizarre, live-action cartoon. Bruce Campbell shows why he's the man from day one. Very interesting to see different aspects of this film that have become trademarks for director Sam Raimi and the Coen Bros as writers. The hero is named Vic, so you can't go wrong there.

Its...all over the place, but has moments of real brilliance. Spiderman 3 and this both share that fatal formula.

The kid in the elevator though is fantastic!

In a word: wacky. Make that wackywackywacky! From start to finish, a manic, at times surrealist adventure chronicling one crazy night when a co-owner of a home-security business hires two psychotic exterminators to off his partner for selling him out. Neighbors, onlookers, and innocent bystanders all become involved in the mayhem with very broad, often cartoonish characterizations. Great camerawork and imagination with several laugh-out-loud moments (best: the final expression of Mr. Yarman.) Only a protracted car chase/cliffhanger bogs down the silliness. Not unlike an early Coen brothers comedy, and not at all surprising since they co-wrote the script with pal Sam Raimi directing one of his earliest films (which means a great role for smarmily handsome Bruce Campbell as a smug, slick-talking heel.) Five times more entertaining than Spider-Man for 1/50th the cost.
