Critic Reviews for Night Watch

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Lucille Fletcher's Night Watch isn't the first average stage play to be turned into a better than average film. Astute direction and an improved cast more than help.

Tired, old-fashioned thriller.

Top Critic

Elizabeth Taylor, and about time, has got herself a good picture and a whodunit at that

New York Times
Top Critic

Filled with red herrings and featuring a bloody "twist" ending, Night Watch fails to create much of an atmosphere.
