Of that debut, The Nice Guys conserves the environment (Los Angeles) and messed up couple that combines wonderfully Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, catapulted into the middle of a complex and agitated by intrigue crimes, leaks, accidents, conspiracies palace. The first abundant abandons the role of the invincible warrior, succumbing to alcohol but pulling (always) well-placed punches, reversing opponents and existential showers because Crowe knows only heroic destinies. less heroic but equally energetic, Ryan Gosling keeps the epic head of the partner who breaks an arm, but covers them shoulders. If Detective Crowe’s role is to weight against which any attempt fringes of enemy attack, Gosling competes the lightness of ‘shape by crossing’.

If Kiss Kiss Bang Bang celebrated Raymond Chandler, through the intricate designs and titles of the chapters which followed titles of his famous novels and short stories, The Nice Guys can breathe the American author and lysergic atmospheres of a city that practically invented him . Cowboy sentimental and spirits that Campanian of their personal moral code, the nice guys act a polar muscle that lowers the suspense and turn up the volume of the music. Music that helps to bind choreographic stalking, fist fights, races and coup the théâtre, harmonizing the madness slapstick Gosling with a sense of epic entertainment Crowe, tailoring caleidoscopia with the color parade décor.
