Since I have a weak spot for Mel Gibson, I thought I should check this movie. At the time, he was at the peak of his popularity (he made this movie just after ‘Lethal Weapon 2’ and, 5 years later he would direct and star in ‘Braveheart’). Eventually, it was nothing really great but it was at least better than ‘Air America’ released the same year, though I might give it a 2nd chance at ... read more

The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2014 (402 movies items)

"This is a middle of the road but enjoyable action comedy. The movie is routine but gets by with the likeable leads in Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn. It has some good action scenes and plenty of on-screen carnage thanks to John Badham's brisk direction. The story is wafer thin but the movie moves by so quickly it is difficult not to enjoy. The chemistry between the two leads more than makes up for the clichéd by the numbers performances of the bad guys led by David Carradine and Bill Duke. It's a f"

Eventually, it was nothing really great but it was at least better than ‘Air America’ released the same year, though I might give it a 2nd chance at some point. The selling point was to have Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn together in one action-comedy and, even though they played their usual characters, they had enough chemistry. There was also some major discussion other the fact that the climatic action scene was taking place in a zoo at the end. Indeed, it was actually a fake, a massive set, and it must have been pretty tricky to handle all the” read more

"Bird on a Wire is far from inept-every one of those car chases is masterfully staged. Still, for most of two hours you're pummeled with formula; it would be hard to name another movie at once so proficient and so dull. - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly"

"March 22 "You come to Detroit and you rent a Beamer? That's like going to Germany and eating Jimmy Dean sausages!" It was an entertaining movie, but for an action comedy it's very lacking in the laughs department. There were only two funny parts in this movie and it wasn't the line I chose. I only used it because I couldn't find the quotes I found funny online. I was somewhat entertained, but could've been better."
