In this installment of Catching Up On Cinema’s “Ladies’ Night” event month, Kyle and Trevor review Renny Harlin’s, The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996)!
Starring Geena Davis in a rare action heavy role, the film concerns an amnesiac lady spy recovering her lost memories and wrapping up loose ends.
Directed by Renny Harlin (former husband to our leading lady), written by Shane Black, and costarring the likes of Samuel L. Jackson and Brian Cox, the film has all of the components of a 90’s action classic, but ends up falling short of the sum of it’s parts.
Filled with Shane Black-isms and creative, explosive stunt work and pyrotechnics, the film is a fine action film, but unfortunately not the star making feature that it’s director and star had hoped it would be.
