Hudson Hawk (1991) (part 6 of 13)

Cut to the Brooklyn Bridge and an ambulance making its way through traffic. Hawk wakes up inside on a gurney, and realizes who’s in here with him: Not paramedics, but Cesar and Antony, both cackling. They tell Hawk that the whole business with the fake statue and auction house explosion was to cover up the real robbery. As Cesar puts it, “Subtlety’s not one of our strong points!” At least he and the movie are being honest.

“Come on, why not do a sequel to The Last Boy Scout?”

Smarts are clearly not one of the Mario Brothers’ strong points either, because Hawk isn’t tied down, so he’s able to catapult a rack of syringes right into Antony’s face. I guess it also helps that the rack of syringes was being stored needle-side up.

This holiday season, Quentin Tarantino reimagines The Nutty Professor!

As Antony flails about, his gun goes off, and blasts a hole through the windshield. The driver struggles to right the ambulance, sideswiping a few other vehicles on the road.

Rori Stevens

Miss Stevens came to the Agony Booth in the process of looking for reviews of Trail of the Pink Panther and has since established herself as (among other things) a notoriously devoted Peter Sellers fan, a Michael Jackson deconstructionist, and an all-round critiquer. She has delusions of success as a writer but has a day job just in case. "Sapphire" credits whatever success she has as a Boother to her love of the whimsical, eccentric side of cinema - while others might blanche at the madness of the films she's helped recap, she dives in every time.
