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.
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.
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.
