Hollywood Homicide

3

An old-school, Lethal Weapon-style cop flick, Hollywood Homicide vanished like Debbie McGee at the box office. Which was rather unfair, because it's actually not too bad.

Looking on the light side after the LAPD-drubbing he delivered in Dark Blue, writer/director Ron Shelton depicts decent cops who moonlight for a living, with Harrison Ford's ageing rogue a real estate broker and Josh Hartnett a wannabe actor teaching yoga on the side. As a thriller it falls apart in the chaotic climax, but Ford's amusing and irascible as he investigates a rap-group killing, while Hartnett proves he's more than just a pretty face, with his Brando-aping theatre stint a particular pleasure.
