    Synopsis


    The Long Kiss Goodnight
    An ordinary woman discovers that her life was not always ordinary in this action thriller. Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) is a typical, well-mannered single mother working as a schoolteacher when she isn't looking after her children. Nothing on the surface would seem to be remarkable about Samantha's life, but every once in a while she has vague memories and unexplained impulses that don't add up with her current life experience; she has scars but no idea of how they got there, she suddenly displays a deadly talent for knife-throwing while chopping vegetables for dinner, and when she sees a deer, she suddenly attacks it with her bare hands. When an auto accident and a television news broadcast stirs some more uncomfortable memories, Samantha hires private investigator Mitch Hennessey (Samuel L. Jackson) to look into her past and see what he can find. Mitch learns that Samantha isn't really Samantha after all -- her name is Charley and she used to be a professional assassin with a secret government intelligence program. After a severe head injury, Charley developed a case of amnesia, and in time she developed her new personality as Samantha. However, her old boss has kept tabs on her, and now that it looks as if the old Charley is starting to come out again, he sends a pair of hit men after her to see to it that she doesn't remember anything else; soon Samantha and Mitch are on the run, trying to outdistance the killers as they get to the bottom of Charley's secret life. The Long Kiss Goodnight was directed by Renny Harlin, husband of leading lady Geena Davis; this was their second project together, following Cutthroat Island, released the previous year. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Old School action with a female lead!

      I loved this movie, I am a big Gina Davis fan and this was the first for her playing this kind of a character and she pulled it off. It's one of those "back in the day" movies for me. Very well made, builds itself up from slow to quick and has lots of good action in it. Samuel L. Jackson is in rare form in this movie. It's a 5 x 5 on the Video & Audio Quality especially if you have a nice surround sound system and a great sub-woofer to go with it; a nice 1080p tv really helps this thing shine through as well. As a BB exclusive, the price is right for any and all to take a chance on this old school movie with another of the early super heroine/female action lead hero types!

      Over the years there are movies that DO promote better than average entertainment that a person would watch over and over again. Of course, it is in the mind of the viewer and does include the ability of the actors and their natural attractiveness. This movie is a classic and I have viewed it many times and it is this repeat play that determine my purchase of DVD's. I thoroughly enjoy "The Long Kiss Goodnight."

      Was so excited to find this! Been wanting to watch it for a long time and only owned it on VHS. Even better, it was in the bargain bin. Inspirational movie that girls can kick butt and made me contemplate being in the CIA for half a second.

      Gina Davis & Samuel L. Jackson at their best

      The audience will immediately suspect the condition of Gina Davis but the suspense as it unfolds to her character and the character of Samuel L. Jackson is very well choreographed during this edge of your seat action packed movie.

      I've seen it several times and enjoy it every time. The fight scene at the end is a bit over the top but the rest of the movie is quite enjoyable. I'm a big fan of sarcasm and this fits the bill!

      Too bad Geena Davis didn't capitalize on her mid-level rise to fame a little more. We could have done with a little more BAD A## Geena paired with then-husband Renny Harlin's over-the-top action sequences.

      It may not have done well in the box office, but Geena Davis is one gal not to mess with. Samuel Jackson is great, as always, and not to be sold short. An awesome action movie not to miss.
