Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Bruce Willis's awful, 1991 vanity piece is an abuse of audience goodwill and a waste of a good cast and director (Michael Lehmann of Heathers). The story, cowritten by Willis, concerns a cat burglar pressured into stealing precious art, including some from the Vatican. But the script is just a convenience upon which Willis piles his vaguely boorish brand of hip irony, assuming his audience will stay with him every step of the way. Certain, self-congratulatory scenes induce cringing--Willis and Danny Aiello, for instance, sing "Side by Side" (to brassy accompaniment on the soundtrack) every time they're working a job--but the overall effect is more irritating and baffling. Keep a good thought for Willis (an underrated actor better than the summer junk we usually see him in) by checking out his superior work in Pulp Fiction and his small but memorable role in Billy Bathgate. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic film like no other!!!! June 15 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I remember really diggin the hell out of this at the theatre, despite the fact that it tanked and I was all of 12. What gets me is that- I understand why your average brainwashed zombified office drone wouldn't like this but the critics panned it too. Actually, that doesn't surprise me, given the heidi fleiss treatment they've lavished on the wretched 'Troy.' Anyway, Glad to see there's a little amazon cult of like-minded souls who appreciate the hilarious absurdity, one-off jokes, great performances, neat ideas and all around craziness this movie delivers.
Yeah, there are some plot problems and pacing is off-kilter, but heck, this film is so much fun from the first second til the end when Eddie finally gets his- no I won't ruin it... Give it a chance. I haven't perused the DVD but doubt it has much extra stuff. This isn't the kind of film the gets the redux.
If the thought of Danny Aiello, Bruce Willis, James Coburn, Sandra Bernhardt, Andie McDowell (no relation to Malcolm), a young David Caruso, and a handful of other dynamic character actors doesn't appeal to you then stop reading now. Moreover, if the thought of the world's greatest jewel thief stealing Da Vinci treasures, a Vatican spy agency, an over-the-top madman entrepreneur and his depraved wife aimed at destroying the world's economy, a corrupt CIA covert ops team called "The Candybars," doesn't pique your interest then go back to bed.
Some of the best one liners I've ever heard. They never get old. "I must speak with the dolphins now." "Just kill her- Darwin! This is supposed to be torture, not therapy." "Bettie Jo Baijarsky? I can get you an address on that." "Bunny?!? Ball Ball!!!"
If you like Bill Murray's everyman attitude in ghostbusters then this film's humor will appeal.
In summation- If you dug 'Ice Pirates,' "The Princess Bride," or any Terry Gilliam film you will probably dig this one.
ciao.

1.0 out of 5 stars It cannot be watched. Official. Dec 4 2002
By Gary
Format:DVD
Occasionally, along comes a film that is of such preternatural badness that you cannot describe it's awfulness. Thankfully, this isn't that movie. This boisterously jejeune enterprise jumps the shark early with a positively cringe enducing duet sung between Willis and Aiello while robbing a museum. It then goes on to pole vault the polecat, leap the lizard, circumnavigate the crocodile, skip the snake, bye-pass the barracuda and last, but by no means least, winch over the whale. Yes, my scriptwriter is Bruce Willis.
Mr Aeillo seems happy to have his weight ridiculed in order to feed the wife and kids.
I have tried twice to watch this film and was forced to give up again in exactly the same place. It is genuinely unwatchable. The reviews here suggest that it really is impossible to go broke under-estimating the intelligence of the American public. DVD rules! Astonishingly, someone even wrote a several paragraph thesis on why the script was in the tradition of William Shakespeare. Well, Bill never had much of a sense of comedy so maybe he's on to something. The trouble is, if all laws of the known universe are suspended, so is suspense. Which is why, at least for me, 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' grows tiresome after twenty minutes.
I have it on good authority that this lamentable effort gets worse when Richard E Grant turns up. No suspension of disbelief needed there, then.
I'm determined to sit through it all one day. I'm thinking of having someone tie me to a chair in front of a television and administer large doses of mescalin every twenty minutes or so. On second thoughts, better make that ten. I'll be able to finish that Noam Chomsky, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars WAY AHEAD OF ITS TIME! May 11 2002
Format:DVD
Which is why many people never got it. They were probably expecting DIE HARD or a hard action film but this is delightfully lighthearted and funny in a silly kind of way. NO WAY is it meant to be taken seriously. Like a film where thieves time their robberies to songs is supposed to be real?
Eddie Hawkins (Willis) is the Hudson Hawk, the greatest catburglar who ever lived and he has been blackmailed by the CIA and an OTT camp villian couple called The Mayflowers (Richard E. Grant and Sandra Bernhard). Against his will he is shipped off to Rome (literally) to steal some of DaVinci's greatest works. His friend Tommy (Danny Aiello) and an undercover nun (Andie MacDowell) assist him as he robs the Vatican and tries to shake off a bunch of MTV-generation CIA agents called the Candy Bars (Kit-Kat, Butterfinger, Snickers and Almond Joy). Much adventure and comedy follows.
It's got lots of silly humor and cool stunts and is richly bizzare too. Quite refreshing really. Don't watch this expecting anything else than deliberate silliness. It's a film I can watch when I'm in any mood as it is major fun.
The DVD is in pretty plain Dolby 2.0 surround and is anamorphically enhanced at 1.85:1

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally a cult classic Sept. 10 2001
Format:DVD
Husdon Hawk suffered mercilessly at the hands of critics on its theatrical release, and after the press junket even the director and supporting cast were happy to trash it. Despite the dreck he's put his name to since, I think Richard E. Grant still holds up his hands in horror at the mention of it. Hardly surprising, then, that it has the reputation of a big-budget bomb. I saw it at the movies and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not long ago I spotted it as the most frequently repeated title in a DVD forum poll of films the critics panned but we really enjoyed. I bought the tape on first release and while I'm sure I watched it then I know it's just been gathering dust for about 8 years. To cut a long story short I had teenagers to entertain over the weekend, so I dusted it off and enjoyed it all over again. I'd forgotten how idiosynchratic, brilliantly surreal and utterly brutal it is. The action is bone-crunching Looney Tunes excess, a better live action cartoon than all the Roger Rabbit remake misfires we've seen in the last 5 years. James Coburn is excellent value as 2nd villain, and movie buffs can spot the other references to his classic character Derek Flint - 10 years before Austin Powers 2! If nothing else can make you see the brilliant, intelligent, fractured reality of the story, check the moment at the end of an impossible, improbable, horrifically nightmarish ambulance ride when a character hands the Hawk a card which says "This isn't a dream".

Pure fun. Bruce Willis as he should be. Lots of action packed scenes but with great humor through the entire movie. Some not suitable for kids.

Totally ridiculous and funny all the way through. A modern day musical set in New Jersey, The Vatican and Italy.

I only gave it four stars because the supporting actor pair are so foul-mouthed, it detracted from the movie. Bruce, Danny, and Andie MacDowell are dynamite. Read more
