Audience Reviews for Night and the City

Night and the City starring Robert De Niro and Jessica Lange is a good drama set in NYC. Harry (De Niro) is a ambulance chasing lawyer whom is romantically involved with a married woman (Lange) who works at her own bar. A good film to see with the great actors De Niro & Lange.

So De Niro does great here, and his monologues and way of speaking incessantly are pretty good.
But this film, it just feels like this tired, old retread of something out there that's better. Oh wait, it's a remake, that's why!
I mean, Warden's good, hell, even Lange and her terrible accent isn't half bad, but I wasn't compelled to watch this movie that much.
The ending was scattershot, and I could've seen it coming a mile away. I'm sure the original is better.
This one, leave it in bin next to Eight-Legged Freaks and The Wiz.
