Eight years after the initial success of Crocodile Dundee, Australian comedy actor Paul Hogan attempted to rejuvenate his career as Lightning Jack, an illiterate gunslinging outlaw, partnered with a mute black sidekick (Cuba Gooding, Jr.)
It has a handful of funny moments, but is indistinctly average overall. Still, it's an improvement on the third Crocodile Dundee outing
5/10
