10 years of Flick Filosopher: Bruuuuuuce!
Willis, that is. I’ve been loving me some Bruce Willis since the beginning, as my review of The Jackal and Mercury Rising demonstrates:
The Jackal is unnecessarily convoluted and often doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it’s almost worth watching for Willis’s performance. A master of disguises and shifting personalities, his assassin is, somewhat paradoxically, the film’s most mysterious and most interesting character. He is unapologetically bad, a shockingly cold-blooded killer — a sudden hardening of his gaze just barely precedes some sap getting blown away. And for a demonstration of Willis’s surprising range, watch for the scene in which he convinces a pickup in a gay bar that he has the hots for him.
But he never returns my calls…
