The Nice Guys (5/20)

16. The Nice Guys (5/20)

Dir. Shane Black

6 of 21

Filmmaker Shane Black (Iron Man 3) returns to the world of partner cops in The Nice Guys. Starring Ryan Gosling (Drive) and Russell Crowe (Noah) star as investigators in 1970s Los Angeles who look into the suicide of a porn star with a diminished career. While investigating, they uncover a larger conspiracy in the vein of Chinatown, L.A. Confidential (another Crowe film), and Inherent Vice. While this one won’t set the box office ablaze, Black expertly pairs a duo of investigators on screen, having done so in Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and Iron Man 3.
