Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Reviews

December 14, 2014
The plot of the film is almost willfully convoluted. But it's also largely beside the point, an excuse for quite a few good scenes, most of them equal parts homage and subversion.
December 14, 2014
Kiss Kiss is such a delightful bombardment, we barely notice that Black's convoluted, serpentine plot doesn't make a lick of sense.

December 14, 2014
A sarky, sniping film noir homage that assassinates the character of every LA archetype you could imagine.
December 14, 2014
Ideally mindless and entertaining in every way.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is as deep and as much fun as its title: That is, not very, and quite a lot.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 14, 2014
A self-referential noir-screwball-action movie that never wears out its welcome -- although it delights in taking that risk, over and over again.

December 14, 2014
It's the year's most go-for-broke movie -- weird, silly, sad, and the hardest I've laughed at anything that wasn't The Aristocrats.
December 14, 2014
Part comedy, part romance and part crime caper, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is one of the most entertaining and original films of the year.

December 14, 2014
This noir spoof is hammy pulp fiction to be sure, but the oddball characters and truly hilarious banter pull it right out of the B-grade bin and onto the cult shelf.
December 14, 2014
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is both an apology for soiling American cinema and surrender to the mass appeal that allowed it to happen. It's a bold experiment, yet only occasionally a great movie.

This super-cool post-modern take on Hollywood and the detective genre has been so cleverly written by Black.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang is notable for many things. Firstly, the pairing of Downey Jr. and Kilmer is absolutely inspired.

December 12, 2014
A hugely entertaining mix of film noir, comic buddy movie and meta-cinematic romp.
December 4, 2013
Jumpy and ironic, Downey is a quicksilver delight and Kilmer is funny as the gay Perry.
December 4, 2013
Essential. Killer acting, gripping action and hilarious one-liners.

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.
December 4, 2013
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.
