Movie Reviews

A very underrated film for Dan Aykroyd
Tara Handford | Sudbury, Ontario Canada | 01/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a truly funny movie. I mean, Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd were absolutely great in this film. They make a great team in this movie. Basically one plays a cop, who doesn't have a home. The other plays a cops who's brilliant at his job, but suffers from split personality disorder. They are both teamed together to solve a murder which revolves around a mysterous film connected to Hilter's death. The critic's blew it again, with this film. Dan Aykroyd was actually quite good in this film. He played his character very well. So, did Gene Hackman. This is a very enjoyable film."
Amusing, but not great

"I have a feeling I'm in the minority, but I actually like this movie and have been looking for it for a long time. It's certainly not incredible film-making, but it's fun and silly in a laid-back kind of way. If you like your humour on the goofy side, this one might appeal to you. Picture Sherlock Holmes belonging in an insane asylum with Dr. Watson along just as much to keep an eye on him as to be his sidekick. DeLuise, Ackroyd and Hackman are always enjoyable even when the plot doesn't quite live up to standards."
"I was there..."

"As a salesman of Aluminum Building products, I used to sporadically call on the Carolco/Dino DeLaurentiss movie studio in Wilmington, NC. Back in summer of '88, I stopped by; spoke to one of the lead carpenters & was allowed to go to the soundstage of "Loose Cannons" & watch some shooting. I was there when the scene @ the health spa was shot with Gene Hackman shooting at a neo-Nazi by the pool. Dan Ackroyd was not there that day.(Dom Deluise was;asleep in a chair in his spa office.). However, when viewing the movie, it seems that Hackman did his pistol & Uzi shooting & them slid the Uzi over to Ackroyd for him to shoot. Movie magic 'cause it all was seamless when viewing the movie. Anyway, I got to meet Paul Koslo, the bad guy in the film, (always stars as a bad guy-was in Charles Bronsons' "Mr Majestick" among many others). He was a real nice gentleman;plus he explained the plot to me. At that time the working title was "The Von Metz Incident". Later on, as I was leaving, I got to meet Gene Hackman , which was quite a thrill. A large fellow, not quite my size, 6'3",250 lb. but very accomadating of someone like me that randomly stumbled into him. Of course, I asked for an auotgraph; he asked who to make it out to. I said my son, Tyler, who was a big SuperMan fan and familiar w/Lex Luthor. When I asked how he liked Wilmington he said very nice , "but hot!". I still have the autograph.
The movie , to me, was pretty decent. I've seen others that have had more critcial & commercial success but seemed to be less entertaining. I have the VHS video and watch it every year or so. I think some reveiwers were put off by Ackroyds' performance when he was in his 'looney' mode, but I thought that he handled it quite well. I doubt that Jim Carrey could've done any better! Plus, when he was in his 'analytical mode' his character was very thought-provoking to watch. The story line is intriguing and all of the acting is very good. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good thriller with some comedy thrown in!"
Hackman and Akroyd are both just great here...

"I don't know if this film actually deserves five stars, but as for me, I think it does purely for comedic value. Akroyd shows that he was definitely the "pre-Jim Carrey." Hackman has always had a knack for comedy, and certainly does not disappoint. Together, they are totally crazy and, with the addition of Dom DeLouise (hope I spelled that right) makes this an excellent combination of suspense and comedy. Well worth the price!"
