Product Description

Product Description

Davis/Jackson/Zima/Bierko/Aman ~ Long Kiss Goodnight


Geena Davis and her former husband, director Renny Harlin, attempted to pick up the pieces after the debacle of their box-office disaster, Cutthroat Island. What they came up with was this repulsive ode to American film noir, based on a script by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) about an amnesiac schoolteacher (Davis) who searches for her true identity and finds she is actually a secret agent immersed in a deadly plot to topple the government. Mechanistic in its violence, obnoxious in its attitude, the film makes Davis, a once-promising actress, nothing more than a special effect. She tosses one to sadists in the audience by allowing her character to be beaten, punched unconscious, and tortured. The DVD release has optional full-screen and widescreen presentations, plus Dolby surround sound, theatrical trailer, cast information, optional French-language soundtrack and optional Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I had never heard of this film till it popped up on cable tv and I can't understand why. Geena outdoes Arnold as an action hero in this film!
Geena is an ex-CIA assassin who is brainwashed and given an identity as a school teacher with a quiet family life in a rural town. She continues that life for 8 years with a husband and daughter. Clues start coming to her that she may have been someone else, especially when someone tries to kill her. It seems that her former employers have discovered that she never died and want to make sure that she does.
She hires Samuel L. Jackson, who is a former police officer. Together they form a pair that is as entertaining as Mel Gibson & Danny Glover. When Geena finally regains her memory she undergoes a tranformation into the killing machine she once was with the song "She's Not There" playing in the background.
What follows is Geena and Samuel have to go after the bad guys and hopefully stay alive. All through the rest of the film Geena has to decide who she really is. The killing unfeeling machine? The mother/schoolteacher with the quiet family life? Or a combination of both? Especially, since the bad guys grab Geena's daughter.
Great action scenes that rank up with any of the Die Hard movies!

This movie is a fine action movie. If you've ever seen the Bourne Identity (which was done well after this came out), it's pretty much the same plot. Ex-spy messes up a hit and gets amnesia, then recovers his/ her memories but along the way discovers what kind of a person he/ she has become. The Bourne Identity has better effects, a better script and more believable characters. It's just done better. What the Bourne Identity lacks big time is what makes The Long Kiss Goodnight seem about as good. Two things actually. Samuel L. Jackson: a pure classic. This guy makes any movie good just by throwing in his wit. The other element is Geena Davis. Normally I'm not a big Geena fan, but she's just so beautiful in this movie (especially when she gets into her spy getup) that you simply don't care that the plot is a little cliche at times or the action sequences are corny at other times. The lead character is so easy on the eye that the movie IS better for it. Don't pay attention to that editorial blurb selected by Amazon, the movie isn't bad at all. The Long Kiss Goodnight is good to watch two or three times, but doesn't really get better every time you watch it. Recommended (for guys especially).

Quite frankly, I'm surprised that more people don't know about this movie. The plot has been worked to death in many regards, but this movie offers much more than other books and movies of its type ("The Bourne Identity" by Robert Ludlum and "Code to Zero" by Ken Follet are both "spies with amnesia" stories.)
What makes this movie so different? It's that the Samantha Kane character is cold-blooded, ruthless, and has no regard for human life. In short, she's much more effective in what she does than Ludlum's or Follet's characters.
The movie is filled with suspense and plot twists, but its strongest points are the action scenes. Many movies of this type get bogged down in explosion after explosion (like "Lethal Weapon 4"), but "The Long Kiss Goodnight" manages to keep its momentum throughout the entire movie. I've never met a person who didn't like this movie--the problem is getting people to realize that it exists in the first place.

Samantha Kane (Geena Davis) is a pretty schoolteacher with a lovely life, a handsome fiancé, and a pretty daughter. She is a PTA member and a regular cookie baking mommy, except that she has amnesia.

Mitch (Samuel Jackson) is a lowly private investigator with the aging case of Samatha's past. When Mitch at last uncovers an old suitcase that may contain keys to Samatha's past, Samantha is also seen on TV in a Christmas parade by an inmate, someone from her past that would like to see her dead.
When the inmate escapes and tries to kill her, Samantha realizes that pieces of her past are coming back to her and that her family is not safe. She leaves town with Mitch in order to track down the pieces of her life puzzle.
Enter Charlie Baltimore, ex CIA assassin; the real Samantha Kane, and one very very badass woman. She is sexy and deadly, the best in her field; and her targets of her past are now aware that she is back.
This movie starts just a little slow, but the pace soon becomes a rapid fire sequence of events where under extreme peril Charlie proves again and again that she is definately a force to be reckoned with.
Who would have thought that the lovely and gentle looking Geena Davis could play the part of such a deadly and vicious woman? And yet she plays the part to such perfection that without a change of costume or hairstyle (at first) you can easily tell her persona from her facial expression alone. Absolutely stunning performance from Geena.
Samuel Jackson is stupendous in his role as Mitch, playing a dorky and slightly incompetent anti-hero who finally manages to do one right thing in his life.
One of my favorite moments, and one of the most memorable, is Charlie telling the bad guy, "You're gonna die screaming...and I'm gonna watch." When Charlie talks, you should listen. Absolutely fantastic movie. Enjoy!
