The Nice Guys
- 1 hr 56 min
The Nice Guys is a new noir, action comedy from director Shane Black in which two private investigators investigate a porn star's apparent suicide in late 1970's Los Angeles. After a young boy witnesses a famous porn star die in a car crash, private investigator, Holland March, played by Ryan Gosling, is contacted by a family member who believes the porn star is still alive. March enlists Jackson Healy, Russel Crowe, to help out, and the two stumble into a conspiracy involving the automotive industry. What follows is a classic buddy cop film filled with action, comedy and a wide range of hitmen all set against a stylish 1970's background. The atmosphere adds to the sense of uncertainty inherent in a film where no one knows who to trust or who is chasing who. The cinematography and dialogue keep the action moving while the soundtrack and set design are evocative of the era.
