8 Million Ways to Die ★★☆☆☆

" one of the few remaining dinosaurs of the exploitative history of 1970s and 80s action films"

Directed by Hal Ashby, written by Oliver Stone and starring the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges, 8 Million Ways to Die (1986) should equate in a thrilling, yet touching tale of a cop gone rogue, but instead feels more like an extended late night version of Magnum, P.I. Bridges plays Matt Scudder, an alcoholic cop who loses his badge after shooting a man who went berserk with a baseball bat during a routine narcotics raid.
