Jumpy and ironic, Downey is a quicksilver delight and Kilmer is funny as the gay Perry.

It may just be a fly-by-night fancy, but this quirky noir still packs more heat than your average action thriller.

Kilmer and Downey are not making high art here, but, hey, at least they're good for a few chuckles.

No one does erupting instinct better than Robert Downey Jr.... No one does calculated outrageousness better than Val Kilmer... They're itchy-funny and potent together.

The best movie, with the best script, in writer Shane Black's career.

[Robert Downey Jr. is] the quickest, sharpest, slyest and wryest comic actor on the screen.

Choppy L.A. thriller. Absolutely not for kids.

Its wink-wink eyelids feel heavy from having seen so much in Hollywood and it turns out to be the best accidental detective story since "The Big Lebowski." Downey Jr. and Kilmer make one of the least likely, most inspired buddy pairings of the 2000s.

This is how Hollywood action comedies should be done -- smart, fast and a hoot.

Observer [UK]

As a slice of disposably self-referential entertainment, it more than earns its keep, and also acts as an effective witness-protection programme for two stars who were formerly more in need of a bullet than a kiss.

[A] cheerful mess of a pulp-fiction parody, pumped full of laughs by Michelle Monaghan, Val Kilmer, and Robert Downey Jr.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is as much fun as the title suggests, and packed with banter that rolls off the tongue just as easily.

The film's more than a little bit tounge-in-cheek, and the constant winking at the audience could tire for some. For me, I just kicked back and enjoyed the ride, one far more literate than most shoot 'em ups your'e like to to come across any time soon.

A good time for folks who like Raymond Chandler novels and action movies with a quirky side.

It's the laugh-a-minute repartee of this odd couple that drives the movie far more than the ridiculously overly complicated plot.
