The movie's story is too obvious in its message, and too absurd in its plotting.

This is a B-movie screenplay with an A-level cast and crew.

Eye for Film

With such a competent cast, you can't help but expect more from this film, but while the acting is all right, the directing and scripting rarely stretches beyond the pedestrian.

Too much of it feels like a movie made by geezers, with geezers and for geezers.

A small-time film noir that is remarkably -- and disappointingly -- ordinary.

Writer-director Robert Benton obviously intended to paint this neo-noir in somber tones, but he's succeeded beyond what's good for his movie.

If this movie were cast with no-name actors or even rising stars, it would only be boring and undistinguished. But with a bill full of high-powered names like these, it's a downright disappointment.

A frustratingly muddled film.

As a chance to see some old Hollywood luminaries act together, the show delivers. Why they weren't given a decent script is the movie's real mystery.

Imagine a Medicare version of the private eye Paul Newman played in both "Harper" (1966) and "The Drowning Pool" (1976), and you have "Twilight."

While it is always a pleasure to watch such heavyweights hold the screen together ... they deserved far more for their efforts than an emaciated potboiler that finally boils dry.

Despite its pluses, despite trying to do all the right things, Twilight comes up lacking in both energy and plot, two areas that no noir, geezer or otherwise, can afford to be caught short in.

Twilight is curiously missing the one element that should be a mystery-thriller's stock-in-trade: the element of surprise.

neither day nor night and neither fish nor fowl. The picture swaggers from moody mystery to raunchy comedy, and neither style is Benton or Russo's forte.

Originally titled The Magic Hour, this one must have been renamed in sympathy for the audience.
