THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT MOVIE
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.

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!
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.
Geena Davis is a true athlete, as evidenced by her real-life near-Olympian level archery skills. Whether she is kicking tail or getting her tail kicked, she is ultimately believable because you just know she is truly capable of doing the damn hard physical things she does. Sure there were doubles for some of the scenes, but Davis has such strength, dexterity and grace that you watch in awe as she does so much of the tough action work herself. She is all woman, and a woman with a good heart, but she has been trained to be a ruthless killer. She plays that difficult role with absolute perfection.
Now team her up with Samuel L. Jackson, a low-rent private eye whom she hired as a last resort to help her find out who she really is, and you have a tremendous pairing. As her CIA persona starts surfacing, it is causing dissention in her life. At the same time Samuel Jackson lucks into some info about her. Because her persona starts fragmenting, she is desperate to learn her true identity. So she pairs up with Samuel and starts a road trip to follow up on the puzzling clues he's uncovered. It's an unlikely but ultimately very believable partnership.Read more ›
