Opening Credits With Mood Swings:
Okay so shot one:
Sort of hard to see through the title card there, but we've got two lovers walking arm and arm on a tropical beach into the sunset, beautiful just-past-magic-hour light. It's warm, it's romantic, it's sweet.
Four shots later (after two of the couple at a peaceful luau, and one getting off a plane and receiving a lei):
DEAD TREES! MUCH SPOOKIER SUNSET! BLIGHTED URBAN LANDSCAPE! ANGRY HERBIE HANCOCK SYNTH MUSIC! AAAAAAAAA! SHIT! Death Wish? DEATH WISH?!? What happened to warm, romantic, and sweet?
The rest of the movie isn't half as awesome as that juxtaposition, and it's actually a lot less silly than I expected (I guess that comes in the sequels). Then again, the movie does cast Jeff Goldblum as the face of inner city gang violence. Yes, that Jeff Goldblum.
