The Long Kiss Goodnight Reviews

Nick's Flick Picks

The surprise and also the disappointment of The Long Kiss Goodnight is much simpler, and less politically inflected: it's badly made, or too close to badly made.

Frankly, if I had to see either Harlin-Davis movie again, I'd opt for the klutzy unpleasantness of Cutthroat Island over the efficient if equally stupid unpleasantness of this 1996 release.

The Long Kiss Goodnight is the fall's best summer movie.

Hectic stuff with a spectacular finale.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The kind of movie in which a dozen bad guys with an automatic weapon in each hand couldn't hit a lake if they were standing at the bottom of it, to steal the screenplay's best wiseacre remark.

Like the heroine, the movie has two personalities that smartly coexist.

There's an excessive amount of excess -- a mind-numbing plurality of firearm battles, vehicular explosions and brutally frank sexual talk.

"The Long Kiss Goodnight" has a jokey good time with its outlandish pyrotechnics and offbeat character interplay.

The only saving graces are Davis's stripped-down, mean-as-a-wildcat portrayal of the Uzi-toting Charly, and Jackson's engagingly ineffectual turn.

I like The Long Kiss Goodnight. I thought it was a lot of fun, and the dialogue was funny and didn't make me wince in pain.

This is pretty standard action hero stuff, with the exception of having Gena Davis take on the traditional male role. And she's not bad!

He's a hack, but I love Renny Harlin!

Mr. Black's screenplay is mean-spirited, but it earns its keep with sharp, sarcastic dialogue and ingenious ways of setting up this story.

underrated action in drag

Solid action movie. Davis kicks ass, Jackson is in his usual form. Could have used more family implications, but does okay.

Lots of action, bullets, blood and explosions with a little comedy. Nothing fancy.

The logic of the next scene is never as important to Harlin as the size of the next explosive charge.

With square-jawed grimaces and big guns, Geena Davis could be a convincing two-fisted bullet-spraying action hero -- if only she had a convincing movie in which to be one.

As an actioner with the requisite amounts of humor and heart, "The Long Kiss Goodnight" is a lot of fun.
