Goofs

When Anna is shot by the curare dart, she falls next to Hudson with her right arm on the floor by the side of her leg. In the next shot, her arm has moved up onto the top of her leg. If she was paralyzed, and no one moved her arm...it should still be by her side. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: Long ago, the Duke of Milan commissioned a little known artist to erect a Mammoth statue of a horse. The time was 1481... The artist was Leonardo da Vinci... The guy on the donkey's just a guy on a donkey.

This movie is a blast!
28 October 1998 | by Peach-2See all my reviews

Hudson Hawk has cult movie written all over it. Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello have a blast making robberies while singing show tunes. It put me in the spirit of the movie and I enjoyed myself. Everybody in the cast overacts but that didn't bother me at all. This is the kind of movie that after years pass will be considered a cult classic. Check out Hudson Hawk if you want to have a good time. Because like all the best films, you have to suspend your belief in reality to make it work and this movie is fantasy on a whole new level.
