Vince The Cinephile’s review published on Letterboxd:
Shane Black’s undeniably entertaining The Nice Guys puts enough edge and nostalgic quirkiness to make an impression. The film follows a private detective and an enforcer tasked to investigate the disappearance of a young woman in relation to the death of a porn actress. The rest that follow is a top-of-the-line hooliganism played convincingly by Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling. The Nice Guys brings the retro buddy-action movies with such wit and swagger. Gosling is surprisingly good in physical comedy while Crowe gets the emotional moments true to the heart. Overall, The Nice Guys is cool and slick. One of 2016’s best popcorn movies.
