This movie was godawful. All of the jokes were bad at best, but most were cringe-worthy awkward collisions that you had to wade through to find a punchline. The movie's conception of homosexuality is extremely questionable, and the metafictional soliloquies degrade into discussions of the audience's hygiene. I'm disappointed, Robert.
This is pre-Iron Man 3, Hollywood-obsessed, self-conscious narrating -- here, apparently on a videoblog and not to a therapist -- at its best, feeding a mesmerizing, frenzy and often edgy metafilm comedy -- the character-narrator says nipple when he sees a nipple, pees on a corpse and all kinds of profanity and self-references and remarks about the very movie we're seeing and hearing from Downey Jr.'s amusing fast-paced cadence. This is what Seven Psychos tried to be -- with partial success.
Fun movie, with a plot that keeps you hooked and a good balance between comedy and suspense. The narration, while helping to give a noir feel, is oa little overused and the action gets a little too absurd at times.
The plot is a little confusing, especially given how people tend to explain things by talking really fast. But overall it is very funny, and that fast talking makes for fast delivery of jokes. Robert Downey Jr. does especially well
It was trying to look clever rather than be clever (not that it wasn't clever at all). I found the self-consciousness of the film (talking to the audience) entertaining. It had likeable performances (notably the very straight gay guy played very entertainingly by Val Kilmer), good chemistry between the cast members and some half-fun moments. Throughout I had the feeling that this was almost a great script but somehow wasn't. Good enough for passing the time, but had nothing much to miss.
