[Winkler] plunders heavily from older and better productions, updates the plot clumsily to the 1990s while retaining the themes and styles of another era.

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

Robert De Niro, who is usually so adept at finding the right note for every performance, finds the wrong one in Night and the City, a movie based on a 1951 film noir classic that has not been remade so much as quoted from.
