Description

Cat burglar Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) is released from prison and immediately persuaded (by his parole officer amongst others) to steal a Leonardo da Vinci statuette from an auction house. He succeeds, but the newspapers report the theft a failure, and that the auction will go ahead as scheduled. A bizarre mixture of crime caper hi-jinx, sci-fi fantasy and song-and-dance, the film was a big-budget, box office flop.

Synopsis
Hudson Hawk (Bruce Willis) has done his time. The infamous cat burglar is released from prison and plans to pursue an honest life. Some of his cronies, however, feel differently and coerce him back into a life of crime. With his best friend, Tommy Five-Tune (Danny Aiello), in tow, Hawk finds himself immersed in a series of complex burglaries, culminating with the theft of a priceless Leonardo da Vinci treasure from the Vatican. Every time Hawk thinks he has the situation under control, a new villain is thrown into the mix. A plethora of quirky characters keeps Hawk hopping, including a misguided secret-agent nun (Andie MacDowell), a greedy, megatrendy couple determined to dominate the world (Sandra Bernhard and Richard E. Grant), a ruthless butler (Donald Burton), and a sinister CIA agent (James Coburn) who heads a team of agents nicknamed after candy bars. Director Michael Lehmann (HEATHERS, AIRHEADS) uses slapstick comedy, special effects, and sight gags to keep the action moving at a raucous pace.

Movie Critics
Sight and Sound
"...Compositions whose distant perspectives and electrified pastels have an almost giddy sense of airy freedom..."
Henry Sheehan (1 Jul 1991, p.44-5)
Total Film
"...HAWK is still cleverer, funnier and more inventive than many of the blockbusters that followed it..."
Cam Winstanley (1 Oct 1999, p.106)

Customer Reviews

If I don't get a cappuccino soon, I'm gonna strangle somebody!

Reviewed by on

An undeserved flop on its' first release, this comedy - about ten years ahead of its' time for its' quirky humour - deals with an ex-cat burglar who is so sought after on the day of his release from jail, even his parole officer wants him to steal from a place. All he wants after ten years is a cappuccino coffee which he then (a) spills after his friend slams on the brakes too hard, (b) Sylvester Stallone's brother Frank's buddy shoots the next cup out of his hand, (c) the machine explodes when he tries to make himself another cup, (d) Andie MacDowell puts ethyl chloride in his next cup and finally, when the world is saved, he finally gets his coffee.

Word of warning to the wise: if you find yourself in Rome, don't get into a limousine if there is a South African in it already: trust me on that.
