Reviews

Een actiefilm uit 2003 van Ron Shelton (Blaze, White men can't jump). In de hoofdrollen zien we Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones, The fugitive) en Josh Hartnett (40 days and 40 nights), verder zijn er bijrollen van bekende acteurs, onder meer Lena Olin. Harrison Ford is Joe Gavilan, een rechercheur in Los Angeles die een oude rot in het vak is en bijklust als makelaar. Samen met zijn jonge collega (Hartnett) moet hij de zaak oplossen van een aantal rappers die vermoord zijn in een nachtclub. De harde actie wordt gemengd met humor. De plot heeft losse eindjes, het spectaculaire einde is voorspelbaar, er wordt goed geacteerd. Mick LaSalle (San Francisco Chronicle, i) concludeert: '"Hollywood Homicide", for all its seeming casualness, has some real levels, a nice conception and a consistency of touch. It's a movie an audience can settle comfortably into, and it pays off as it goes along.'
