kiss kiss band bang

A film by Shane Black

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, Michelle Monaghan

A dark comedy film noir about a murder mystery being investigated by a gay private investigator, a thief mistaken for an actor who came to town to recandle a lost love from the past. This film has a style of film noir followed by dark comedy. Downey, Kilmer and Monaghan exhibit great chemistry. Downey’s performance is outstanding neurotic, charming and comic. Kilmer plays a convincing gay detective and Michelle Monoghnan has great sex appeal in this film. It is narrated by downey who is the criminal in this story. It is a satire of pulp story at is best like a spoof of film noir from back in the day in Hollywood. It does not have this formula of buddy buddy cop film thank god for that. The screenplay is like a labyrinth so you have to pay attention carefully to the story it might be confusing at times. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a splendidly choreographed comedy fast paced and cool dialogue. It is violent and silly sometimes both thank to the director Shane Black who has done a terrific job at directing this one as always.
