Audience Reviews for Johnny Handsome
Curious little crime thriller based around a disfigured criminal that has a major face lift, almost like an early version of 'Face Off' really accept a little more realistic.
Its kinda unique because the film almost comes across as an endearing story of a criminal who turns his life around after receiving his new face but then turns into a silly revenge thriller towards the end. I thought the endearing story might have worked better.
The cast is pretty slick with Rourke as the main lead and almost a prediction of his future facial issues and Morgan Freeman looking and acting exactly the same as usual. Forest Whitaker is looking really geeky with a stupid beard and Lance Henriksen is looking completely hilarious in some very gay looking tight fitting 80's attire complete with a ridiculous earring.
Silly title and surprisingly for a Walter Hill film not that good, the problem being its almost two different films stuck together awkwardly.
A tough, stylish, high-energy and explosive crime-thriller. A great movie with a slam-bang finish thats knocks you out. It`s loaded with style, originality and great stars. An intense, hard-boiled and action-packed movie ride. One of Director, Walter Hill`s best films ever and one of the best performances of Mickey Rourke`s career. Mickey Rourke is absolutely outstanding. Morgan Freeman is excellent. Forest Whitaker is terrific.
Very violent hard edged crime drama, Rourke looks like he needs a shower as always making the title an oxymoron but his performance for once is not full of conceit and the others in the cast are fine.
