Audience Reviews for 8 Million Ways To Die

  • Apr 04, 2013
    Based on a series of detective stories from novelist Lawrence Block, "8 Million Ways to Die" is a curious little crime thriller from director Hal Ashby and writers Oliver Stone and David Lee Henry centered on alcoholic ex-cop Matt Scudder (played by utmost commitment Jeff Bridges, who never seems to be giving less than a hundred percent in his roles) as he is dragged into the sleazy underworld of drugs and prostitution. "8 Million Ways to Die" is gritty, full of coarse language and pretty entertaining, but it runs out of steam halfway through, leaving us with an unremarkable second half and an even more unremarkable finale. (The climactic shootout is an embarrassing mess of bad cuts and poor staging.) It's a real shame because the first half is so promising and Jeff Bridges is so good as his character that when the film starts heading downhill with a surplus of tired clichés, cheap dialogue and subpar filmmaking, we're left hoping that it will eventually get better, but it never does. So, what we're left with in the end is a film that had the potential for greatness, but fell disappointingly short.

    Some over the top moments( the shouting match at pier hanger towards end is a classic headache, but fun, 80s through and through, with a passable dudecop performance from Bridges, its just enjoyable 80s nostalgia, first time seeing it now. Andy Garcia is a laughable bad guy early in career, but Rosanna Arquette looks hot as hell, she always was. dont think to much and put your 80s head on, its passable fluff

    An 80s favorite of mine with a great cast with among others Jeff Bridges, Rosanna Arquette, Randy Brooks and Andy Garcia.

    I know, I know. With a cast like this, how could it go wrong? Well, trust me, it does.
