For once, Shane Black's penchant for Christmas isn't merely window-dressing. He understands the holiday's sometimes wearying grenade-shrapnel shell-shock - and how claustrophobically cloistering with loved ones often can only expand the blast radius.

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

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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