COLOR OF NIGHT is an instant candidate for all Worst Movies of
1994 lists. It stars Bruce Willis and Jane March.
It is a mess of a movie. If you are so adventurous as to pay your
money to see it, perhaps you can figure it out; I could not. A typical
scene has Bruce Willis as a psychiatrist listening to a group of
patients in a circle talking about all of their bizarre problems. They
ask him his credentials. He says "I went to college".
Mainly Bruce Willis stares at the other people and seems to be
thinking what ever possessed me to agree to be in this movie. Why
didn't I ask to read the script first?
The putative director was Richard Rush. The preposterous
gibberish they speak was written by Matthew Chapman and Billy Ray. The
dialog was so ridiculous that it made you wonder if this was supposed
to be a parody of a bad movie.
COLOR OF NIGHT is rated R, but I think it is not suitable for
anyone of any age. It lasts for 2 hours and 3 minutes, if anyone could
stay through it all. I certainly could not, but I feel confident that
I missed nothing by not staying till the bitter end. I give it
absolutely no stars at all!
