Pretentious and overly convenient, but Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling have excellent chemistry.

The Nice Guys is basically L.A. Confidential as a comedy, and it works shockingly well.

The fact that this isn't getting a sequel is the most depressing thing ever. I mean, I've never seen this side of Gosling and Crowe before, even in a buddy cop film. "The Nice Guys" has one of the tightest scripts in recent years from the excellent Shane Black.

Shane Black hat sein Handwerk in den 80ern gelernt. Damals gab es noch Buddy Cops: Zwei gegensätzliche Ermittler, die trotzdem zusammen arbeiten müssen. Das Genre brauchte Hiebe und Sprüche, vor allem aber zwei starke Charaktere. Während der 90er geriet das Sub-Genre "Buddykomödie" in Vergessenheit, heute ist es wieder zurück! Der Privatdetektiv Holland March (Ryan Gosling) und der Vollstrecker Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe), der sich für Geld anheuern lässt sind Blacks ungleiches Team. Sie treten auf in L.A. 1977, einer Welt voller Sex und Gewalt, was den charmanten Retro Charme noch verstärkt. Ein Ausstattungsfilm mit dem passenden Soundtrack! Ganz wichtig: Keine einzige Wendung des Plots ist neu oder überraschend! Es gibt keine High Tech Waffen oder überdrehten Schnitte, …

Writer/Director, Shane Black, returns to his mastered wheelhouse of 'buddy cop' formula flicks... with a vengeance! 'The Nice Guys' is exactly the type of movie that only Black can deliver - and he delivers in spades here. His entire focus is on character. The two 'nice guys' in question are the unbelievably entertaining pair of Gosling and Crowe. These two carry the film with an easy flow of charm, wit, and personality to spare. Their comroadarie is impeccable. It's a joy to watch the duo solve this twisting mystery filled with noir-ish undertones. The case at hand gives the plot momentum, and it's never too farfetched, but our investment is always centered in our two main investigators. Watching them follow the clues and get caught in harry situations is total fun. Our 'guys' …

There's a scene halfway through Shane Black's fun "The Nice Guys" in which Ryan Gosling's really fair private specialist has bumbled down a slope, shakily attempting to inspire a young lady at a gathering. As he will do a few times in the film, he truly falls into a piece of information, a decaying carcass of somebody he's been searching for. Also, what does Gosling do when he encounters it? He doesn't react in the ordinarily impassive film star way. No, he delves much more profound into the parody motion picture secret stash and hauls out, for goodness' sake, a Lou Costello impression—that magnificent, quiet shout the performer would do when he saw something like the Wolfman. It is a genuinely insane minute, one of a few bits of physical parody that Gosling pulls off all through "The …
