The Last Boy Scout (Bruce Willis & Damon Wayans) – Reel Action

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Welcome back to Reel Action, where we take a look at some of the coolest action flicks of the eighties and nineties, starring legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, JCVD and more!

This week, we're digging into a Bruce Willis Christmas classic – and no – not Die Hard or even Die Hard 2: Die Harder. Rather, we're checking out Tony Scott's The Last Boy Scout, starring Willis as a broken down P.I, with Damon Waynes as a similarly burnt out former quarterback, who try to solve the murder of an exotic dancer, played by a young Halle Berry. And yes, it takes place at Christmas – thanks in no small part to it being written by the king of Christmas himself – Shane Black!
