Movie Review: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang***


A thief, struggling actress and a private detective come together when a string of murders happen around them and they seem to be connected.

This is a Robert Downey Jr. Val Kilmer starrer is a dark comedy with pace and humor (unwanted sometimes) what really lacks is the sleek editing which makes the film confusing and not easy for follow. Though the action is interesting but it is not very realistic and leaves you feeling dry. The movie does show promise and will be liked by many but for me I have seen similar films many times. This is probably because this film released in 2005 when it was fresh but now many films have similar plots and some even are better in terms of content.

This has been some sort of comeback film for Robert Downey Jr. and he for most part has done well. Val Kilmer on the other hand has been stiff and his character seems under written. Michelle Monaghan was quite natural in her part for someone who had barely 3 to 4 films under her belt those days. This is a decent watch for Downey fans the best part being the dog eating his cut finger.
