Movie Reviews : 8 Million Ways to Die
I reviewed 80's action movie 8 Million Ways to Die for Flick Feast recently. Even Jeff Bridges couldn't make it passable:
On first glance and going purely off its synopsis, there appeared to be a lot going for 8 Million Ways to Die. Jeff Bridges as a washed up drunk of a cop who loses it all but gets a chance at redemption once he is immersed into a seedy LA underworld of drug deals, vice girls and excess. It could have been a prototype Lethal Weapon style action film with its strong and charismatic lead and no-holds barred violence. In other words a staple 80’s guilty pleasure that what it lacks in originality, it makes up for with witty dialogue and overblown action. Unfortunately the end result turns out more like an extra cheesy episode of Miami Vice guest starring Andy Garcia doing his best Scarface impression.
