So many great lines and big laughs that it is climbing up there on my high comedy hit parade. It is just that the lows were awfully low and last half lags but knowing that gives the rest of it life.

Has some good moments and you do come to like the well-meaning but uncouth Goodman as the new king. I did appreciate his Skid Row t-shirt and Chicago Cubs hat.

It??s a gangster movie set in the west that I think sounds interesting to watch, and that movie is called LAST MAN STANDING. Written and Directed by Walter Hill (48 Hrs., Red Heat) and Based on legendary filmmaker Akira Kurosawa??s 1961 Japanese film ??Yojimbo??. The film, which is an officially authorized remake, tells the story of John Smith (Bruce Willis), a gun slinging-for-hire drifter, who winds up in the dusty ghost town of Jericho, Texas and finds himself drawn into a vicious war between two Prohibition-era Mafia gangs: the Irish, led by Doyle (David Patrick Kelly ?? The Crow) and his right hand man Hickey (Christopher Walken), and the Italians, led by Fredo Strozzi (Ned Eisneberg ?? TV??s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit) and his cousin Giorgio Carmonte (Michael Imperioli ?? TV??s The Sopranos). In a dangerous game, he switches allegiances from one to another, offering his services to the highest bidder. And as the death toll mounts, Smith must take the law into his own hands in a deadly race to stay alive. The film also stars Karina Lombard (Legends of the Fall, TV??s The L Word) as Doyle??s mistress Felina, William Sanderson (TV??s Deadwood & True Blood) as bartender Joe Monday, Alexandra Powers (TV??s L.A. Law) as Strozzi??s mistress Lucy Kolinski, Patrick Kilpatrick (Under Siege 2: Dark Territory) as Finn, Leslie Mann (Big Daddy) as Wanda the Prostitute, and Ken Jenkins (TV??s Scrubs) as Texas Rangers Captain Tom Pickett. Almost all the cast members have worked with Hill on other Pictures such as David Patrick Kelly (The Warriors, 48 Hrs.), Ted Markland (Another 48 Hrs., Wild Bill) as Galt??s silent Deputy Bob, Luis Contreras (Red Heat, Geronimo: An American Legend) as Mexican Police Captain Ramirez, and Bruce Dern (Wild Bill) as Sheriff Ed Galt. The film is known primarily for its intense gunfights, featuring Willis's character dual-wielding two M1911 .45 caliber pistols, in the style reminiscent of Hong Kong Blood Opera. But I didn??t care; I enjoyed seeing Willis killing all of Doyle and Strozzi??s men. The first time I heard about this movie was watching a clip of it on the TBS television station. I recently turned eight the month and year it came out on September 20th, 1996, and I never saw it till I was 21. I grew up watching Bruce Willis movies almost all my life, from Hudson Hawk to Die Hard, and I thought this movie was one of the best performances of his I??ve ever seen. Sadly, the film did poorly at the box office, grossing only a total $18,127,448 by December 22, 1996. But I still think Director Walter Hill??s LAST MAN STANDING is entertaining to watch for any movie lover such as myself.
