A good-natured, if laconic, oater that rides along nicely on the screen persona of writer/actor Paul Hogan.
The film has no internal comic rhythm to match its faltering sense of humor. Much of the time, it plods along like a mediocre conventional western.
Lightning Jack feels like a film you might stumble across late at night on the USA Network.
It's impossible to dislike Paul Hogan, and almost as hard to like his movies. They're as goodhearted as they are simple-minded.
Hogan should hang up his spurs until a truly original impulse comes along.
Politically incorrect jokes (endlessly) about hearing impaired (Gooding) make for tasteless flick.
It's a long slow trek from gag to gag.
The relationship between Ben and Jack never really develops any warmth or resonance, mainly because it seems never to have been thought through.
A Western for people that hate Westerns.
This road has been trod a few too many times before.
Unforgettable, but really silly and nothing recommentable, Lightning Jack presents some not so funny moments that makes a bad film.
If you like western or comedy movies, you will probably like "Lightning Jack." Paul Hogan stars as Lightning Jack, a cowboy that is famous for craftily robbing banks. He is one of the most wanted criminals in the country. Cuba Gooding, Jr. is a mute that later tries to team up with Lightning Jack and become a successful robber and cowboy in his own right. That's when the movie gets a lot better and more interesting. It will keep you interested throughout the movie so you can find out if Lightning Jack will remain successful at robbing banks across America or if he'll get caught. The movie also has a lot of funny parts that make it even better. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. This was a nice surprise of a movie at the time and wouldn't mind seeing again.
good film funny
Paul Hogan's comedy-western looks a bit unfunny to me since Crocodile Dundee sequels.
