Movie Info

Night and the City is a remake of the 1950 Richard Widmark vehicle of the same name. Major changes: As played by Robert DeNiro, the Widmark character, one Harry Fabian, is no longer merely a two-bit tout but instead a two-bit lawyer; and the film is set in New York, as opposed to the London setting of the original. While embroiled in a lawsuit involving a boxer, Fabian becomes fascinated in the world of championship prizefights. Always susceptible to get-rich-quick schemes, Fabian tries to

Relish the movie's snappy, low-life high spirits.

An unnecessary remake? judged by the end result. it's hard to tell what motivated Irwin Winkler, a poor director, to redo the Jules Dassin noir classic of the 1940s; perhaps the opportunity to work with De Niro and Jessica Lange, though neither is good

Audience Reviews for Night and the City

Night in the City is Robert DeNiro's 4th classic remake, along with We're No Angels, Cape Fear, and Frankenstein. Big performances, or at least, big actors shoes to fill (Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Boris Karloff). At least he brings his own performance to the table, he does the same here. It's an updated telling of the original film, one I'm not at all surprised Martin Scorsese once wanted to remake. He got close to it in other films he made and so Irwin Winkler and Robert De Niro made it themselves. I liked it, it's not the original but the updated version works really well. De Niro is pretty great as Harry Fabian and some excellent support comes from Cliff Gorman, Alan King, Eli Wallach and the much missed Jack Warden.

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.
