Transcript 22 MONTROSE VOICE/OCTOBER 17, 1986 Films Long (Kirk Douglas, left) and Harry Doyle (Burt Lancaster) are a pair of notorious train robbers who face a new world in Los Angeles in the 1980s when they are released from jail after 30 years imprisonment in "Tough Guys" d Tough Guys Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas are two of our greatest actors, appearing together in several films and walking away with a lot of awards. Now the two have teamed up again, this time in a light piece of chicanery called Tough Guys. Now, anyone who watches this film can tell that the story is very weak and poor. Sometimes it's on the level of a made-for-TV movie with childishness like bird droppings and giving the "bird." There is even this very stupid old assassin (Eli Wallach) who tries to kill Burt and Kirk to filfill a 30-year contract, but it's a terrible subplot that never works. You see, Burt and Kirk are just getting out of prison after a 30-year stint for train robbery. Things have changed a lot: street gangs, very forward women who practically live in gyms, and a gay bar where Kirk's old hangout used to be. The guys have a parole officer who tries to help things, and they really try to live the straight life. Problem is that both guys are too old for decent employment. For Burt there is nothing, and he is stuck in a retirement home with bad food and mean help. Kirk has a two jobs, one in an ice cream shop and another slopping dishes and cleaning tables in a high tech restaurant. He loses both of them in a week, not able to handle the pressures of a real job. The Tough Guys aren't allowed to see each other, but they manage to get together. They both even get a woman, Burt an old flame and Kirk a young girl who takes him "slamming" at the disco. Kirk is a mess as he twirls around in a very far out suit and literally wears himself down. The two decided things have gotten too bad, but they don't know what to do. An armed car robbery unfortunately is a fisasco. Then they do something very predictable. Seems as if the train they robbed 30 years earlier is on the its last run. The guys decide to take on the challenge, and the race is on. Probably the only reason to see this is Burt and Kirk who have a good time wallowing through the silliness. This move will be great as a video, but theaters seem to be packing them in. I guess star power is just something that film- goers can't resist. Rock "IT Horse Saturday 9pm-lam Justine (All Girl Band) with Shannon, Susan, Susan and Mystery Guest $2 Cover T.G.R.A.
