Really wish this movie was good

Bruce Willis with most famous for his Die Hard series and probably one of the best action hero in cinema history but in the past few years he kinda stuck with a bunch of horrible action movie which really upset me cause i used to be his fan.When i first heard about a movie called Once Upon a Time in Venice staring Bruce Willis with a very talented cast i though damn this movie might be good comeback for Bruce but the result is..... not that great.It may not as bad as some of his previous work i give you that it still not enough to bring Bruce back from the hole.Describe as a action comedy movie with a run time about 1h- 34min but in fact it a slow burn movie mainly about Bruce as a private detective(a very shitty one) solving crime around Venice until his dog get kidnap by a local drug dealer played by Jason Momoa(Yeah Aquaman himself).The movie does have some good sense of humor but sometime it feel force as hell.For the action part it not that much only near the end but it very unsatisfied and the terrible ending just add more bad taste in my mouth.It not a good movie in any mean but if you a Bruce Willis fan you can check it out

Great entertainment

When you look at the trash they're passing off as movies this year, you'll appreciate Once Upon a Time in Venice. The characters are hilarious, especially the ones portrayed by John Goodman and Thomas Middleditch. Jason Momoa cracked me up, too--I wasn't sure the guy could act at all until I saw this. The premise and plot are ridiculous but the way Bruce Willis plays it straight shows that he's still great at what he started out doing - playing the same smart-ass detective he played in Moonlighting. Probably the best thing about the movie was the eventual partnership between Willis and Goodman. They should do more movies together. Two larger than life characters on screen at the same time with neither one taking all the attention is unusual. Is it an Oscar nominee? This year, it ought to be.

Feels like a TV episode of a bad show

'Once Upon a Time in Venice Beach' was a very different film to that which I was expecting. The main reason for this? I didn't expect a comedy with Bruce Willis in the lead role. When I think of Willis I do not think of funny. He's good at the sarcastic one-liners (think 'Die Hard') evenly spread throughout a film, but not trying to carry the whole thing on his humour alone. He doesn't have the talent for that, nor did he have the script here to be fair. He may not be a funny man, but I don't think many actors in Hollywood would have been able to turn this material into something funny. There wasn't a whole lot to like about this film.

The next problem with the film is that it never actually feels like a film. It feels like the pilot for a TV series. Sure enough I looked up writer/director Mark Cullen's profile and most of his previous work has come in television (with the exception of another Bruce Willis cop movie 'Cop Out' which was also not received well). It's quite a bizarre experience to watch a film structured like a TV episode because it so rarely happens. Surely it's not that hard of a mistake to avoid? There is no focus though and the story just keeps chopping from story to story - none of which are particularly interesting. I suppose the theory was if we don't have one good story to tell let's just tell five mediocre ones instead.

There are a tonne of cameos in the film by faces you'll recognise (most have long since passed the peak of their fame), but sadly none of the them are given any decent material to work with either. No effort or thought has gone into what they could do in their cameo scenes, they simply show show up, spew out a few lines to advance the story a little, and then are gone. It's almost like they only found out they were getting that particular actor in on the morning of shooting and didn't have any time to prepare something for them. Very disappointing.

The only positive I took from the film was John Goodman. He was literally the only one in the entire film who got a laugh out of me, and the movie is undoubtedly at its strongest when he is on screen. Willis looked tired to be honest. It's sad to see, but he has clearly lost his love for the industry and it is coming across brutally on screen. This is sadly yet another very poor film to add to his résumé.
