Rita Kempley - Style section, "Simply the same old action-packed guff."

Desson Howe - Weekend section, "There’s an excessive amount of excess -- a mind-numbing plurality of firearm battles, vehicular explosions and brutally frank sexual talk."

'The Long Kiss Goodnight'

Scene from this movie When we meet Geena Davis, she’s a seemingly sweet schoolteacher suffering amnesia. But after a car crash, she gets a major mental jog, and the past comes back, little by little. Turns out she’s a brutal, cranky killing machine. When these enemies find out that her memory’s coming back, they take action to eliminate her. Davis, a master gunshooter and martial-arts scrapper, is up to their attacks, but she’s saddled with a little daughter (from her recent, schoolteacher life), who becomes a hostage. Davis hooks up with Mitch Henessey (Samuel L. Jackson), a likable, seedy detective, who becomes her strongest and only ally. -- Desson Howe
