Editorial Reviews

Samantha is a suburban mom who makes a killer lemon meringue pie. Charly is a covert op who kills. They’re both the same person. Both may be as good as dead. Geena Davis stars as a woman whose fading amnesia reveals her secret life as an elite government assassin, and Samuel L. Jackson portrays the low-rent detective helping her unlock her memory, all while rogue agents scramble to bury Samantha/Charly and her past. Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2) directs and Shane Black (Lethal Weapon) scripts a full-tilt wallop of breakneck action. Nonstop excitement – sealed with a kiss!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Better Action Movies of the Mid-90s December 6, 2003
Format:DVD
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.

Okay, so sometimes I call this movie "The Long Kiss Goodbye" instead of "The Long Kiss Goodnight," but that does not detract from the fact this is one of my favorite action films from the post-"Die Hard" era (yes, more than "Speed"). The hook is fairly simple: Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) has had amnesia for eight years when suddenly Mitch Henessey (Samuel L. Jackson), the fourth-rate private investigator she hired to work on her case, actually stumbles over a clue. However, that becomes rather academic when some guy comes bursting through Samantha's front door trying to kill her and she dispatches him on pure reflexes.
What we have in this film are the requistie elements for a great action film: interesting characters, memorable dialogue, and great set pieces for the action. Geena Davis comes on like a next generation Sigourney Weaver, going through a fairly intense gamut of emotions as her new life collides violently with her old one (I think this might have been the film were Davis learned her hand/eye coordination was good enough for her to take up archery on a level just below Olympic caliber). Then there is Samuel L. Jackson: is there another action in America today who curses as well as this guy? Every time he swears it comes across as character development rather than profanity (okay, really kewl profanity, the type our parents would never want to hear coming out of our mouths). Think of this as a buddy film where the buddies have neither gender nor race in common.
The supporting cast features Craig Bierko as Timothy, a terrorist who prides himself on knowing when somebody is lying to him, Brian Cox as Dr. Nathan Waldman, the person who knows the truth about Sam, and David Morse as Luke, another important person from her past.

Apparently the so called "Movie critics" didn't take a liking to this movie that much, but ya know what? Screw 'em! This movie is pure, unadulterated fun! Samuel L. Jackson in his most dialogue funny role since Pulp Fiction plays a down on his luck PI who just happens to stumble across a pretty school teacher(Geena Davis) who, when her memory served her, was a ruthless spy! This movie is hilarious with plot twists to boot! No one directs an action movie like Renny Harlin, he just goes all out and you find yourself almost questioning whether or not you are watching a cartoon. Fantastic explosions, great one liners and a really cool story. This is one of those must see movies of the 90's, so don't listen to what the critics say check it out for yourself!

3.0 out of 5 stars Girrrrrrrrrl Power! March 14, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Some people need to lighten up a tad. I am sure no one was expecting this to be some serious spy movie -- it's just an action flick with a female lead. And since when are action flicks noted for their realism anyway? The genre is by definition prone to violence and exaggeration. Why is it so horrible when the lead is a female? This movie is over the top what with all the stunts, explosions and crazy situations, but it is entertaining nontheless.
Geena Davis is awesome here as CIA-trained assassin Charlie Baltimore who has amnesia and has settled down as a suburban mom Samantha Cain. Hitting a deer with her car sets in motion the sequence of events that lead to her regaining her memory and resuming her old life. Nearly overnight she morphs from a sweet little PTA Mom to a cussing blonde killing machine. She teams up with a hapless PI (Mitch Hennessy) played by Samuel L. Jackson and the two of them get into some really ridiculous situations. Jackson is the perfect sidekick with his hilarious lines and those bad clothes.
This movie is worth the price for the dialogue alone. I love the part where she tells her tormentor that he is going to die screaming -- this is said while is locking her in some storehouse where she is left to freeze to death with her child. She even smiles when she says it and asks him "Am I lying,?" since this particular bad guy claims to know whenever someone is being untruthful. Sure enough, he dies screaming like a banshee after a few rounds of semiautomatic weapon fire and a fall from a helicopter. Charlie even urges him along with "Die screaming Mutha ...."
I like the scenes with her daughter because the poor kid had to wonder what in the world was up with her mom.

It was ok. I thought the action scenes dragged on for too long. You could have shortened the movie considerably or they could have added something else to the story line. Read more
