Critics Consensus

Bruce willie shot aside, the only other things popping out in Color of Night are some ridiculous plot contortions and majorly camp moments.

  • The killer may find his target, but Color of Night fails to hit the nail on the head by a frustrating margin.

  • I'm tempted to go ahead and explain just exactly how transparent -- and implausible -- this mystery is. But then I don't want to spoil it for people who are even worse than I am at this sort of thing. People like Forrest Gump.

  • Mundane sex scenes, a standard L.A. car chase and Bakula's outrageously gory death scene (which plays like an unintentional parody) are all part of the predictable script.

  • The plot gets so convoluted and farfetched that you still may be scratching your head after the denouement, but you probably won't be bored.

  • It's a psycho-erotic thriller with more twists and shocks than the rattlesnake which, at one point, leaps out at star Bruce Willis-from a location we won't describe. (It would spoil one of the several dozen surprises.)

    May 17, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Color of Night and North represent the nadir of Willis' plummeting film career. He can be a most engaging talent; his script selection of late has been awful.

    A putrid and embarrassing attempt at a sexual thriller.

    hitchcock wannabe that is a mess, erotic thrillers always wanted to bring the basic thriller in the 90s but sadly a lot of them failed. sex scenes are full on and are the only reason you'd be watching this terrible movie.

    A dire film from a period where Willis was a bit lost at sea (see also 'Striking Distance'). This tries to jump on the erotic thriller bandwagon reignited by 'Basic Instinct' but ends up being laughably bad and not at all erotic. Jane March is a poor actress and looks more convincing as a boy than a girl. Willis is embarrassing as a shrink and shows his willy! Enough said! Avoid at all costs!!!
