Critic Reviews for The Nice Guys
For those attuned to its amiably sleazy vibe and sudden alternations between violence and slapstick, it offers a guiltily pleasurable way to pass an evening.
The Nice Guys has a nice feel: just slick enough to keep from falling apart, just brutal enough to keep from seeming inconsequential.
Why see this film? Partly because of the leading men, but mainly because of a girl.
It has the byzantine plot of an L.A. noir, but races through it with the breathless energy of Black's other work.
You won't see Captain America and Iron Man squaring off at an airport, but you do get Russell Crowe breaking Ryan Gosling's arm and then cheerfully downing a Yoo-hoo.
Audience Reviews for The Nice Guys
Features everything there is to love about the buddy cop genre, and the nod at 80's culture was just the best icing on top you could ask for. I'm surprised Marsh's daughter isn't on the promotional images or the title because it might as well have been a 3-man show! Every laugh, punch, kick and gunshot is delivered with such excellence that it makes you forget the whole ordeal is a dated stereotype. It's almost amazing to enjoy such a well crafted buddy cop film in 2015 with all the elements you would expect from a classic. A truly great watch!
Funny and violent detective story set in 1970s L.A. Carried by two great stars (especially Gosling shows immense comedic talent) and fantastic kid actors, this is a wild, surprising ride, similar in tone to Black's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The tone between violence and slapstick may not resonate well with everyone, but for me this was a fun way to spend two hours.
This is a very good buddy cop movie with good performances from Rice and Crowe, and a hilarious turn by Gosling. The story is a bit messy, but the laughs are enough to make up for that. With the fun chemistry between this main cast, I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel.
