    The goal is to survive
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 101 mins
    Retail Price: £15.99
    Release Date:

    Written by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) and directed by Tony Scott (Top Gun). The Last Boy Scout is the Super Bowl of action movies, a flat-out blitz of excitement, blow-you-away special effects and hilarious gimme-five humour set against the world of pro football.

    Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans star as a seedy detective and a disgraced quarterback, teaming to dodge ambushes, fire off one-liners and bust chops.

    When the going gets tough, they get tougher. And funnier. They came to play. And to settle a score in this raging fireball where bigger is better, hits are harder and bad guys end up deader.

    this is one of tarrantinos favourite films.its easy to see why.the pairing of bruce willis and damon wayans is explosive.the script is funny as hell.the action first rate.even the teenage kid in the movie is realistic.if only warner had gave us a directors commentary this would be a must buy however its still a great film.tony scotts best,one of willis as well

    i love this movie for the first time in widescreen and dolby digital who cares about no extra features when a movie is this good and this cheap.even tarrantino loves this one.willis for me has never been more real a bit of a social outcast thats a alcoholic gumshoe who has to team up with a ex american football star turned drug addict.think the dark side of lethal weapon meets the long kiss goodnight.damon wayans has yet to live up to success i thought he would have after this. a excellent opening by bill medley kicks this off into high gear it truly doesnt stop.shame there was never a sequal
