Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ★★★½

Some fun stuff but also a good deal of Certified Epic Funny Shane Black Moments that didn't really hit that hard for me. I normally do like his stuff but I think he is kind of always trying to do a deconstruction of this or that when really, his best stuff ala The Nice Guys is when he just has fun with it.

Nevertheless, its a pretty fun movie. Robert Downey Jr is cool and so is Val Kilmer. Michelle Monaghan is good too, surprisingly bigger role in the story than I expected. The narration was interesting and it does serve a purpose but its really at its best when its just him speaking and not trying to rewind and catch up on who is who.

Anyway, still glad I watched it. Learned a surprising amount about the film noir genre.
