Not bad, not bad! It's entertaining, fun, action-packed and thrill. I know this film long time ago, but never get a chance to watch it, till last night watch it at HBO. Attracted from the beginning, just sit at there and watch till the end. Surprisingly it's a film from 1991, 18 years ago, I watch it first time at 2009 and it's still really not bad! Although it's a "standard formula" from Hollywood action-packed thriller, but it's really works well!

Starring by Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans, both of them are really great actors and they have a "not bad" performances in this film.

Directed by Tony Scott, who brought us movie like The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Man on Fire, Spy Game, Enemy of the State, The Fan, Crimson Tide and etc. He mostly directed action-packed and thriller film. Most of his film, will have 2 strong male characters which either is partner or 2 extreme characters which fighting each other.

I believe "The Last Boy Scout" is one of the best from Tony Scott.

Rate: 6.5 / 10
