Screenwriter Kevin Jarre was actually the one who wrote the first spec script for the movie sometime around 1989 or earlier, and producer Lawrence Gordon, who produced films like Predator (1987) and Die Hard (1988), bought it in January of 1990 but later his script was sold to other studios and by the time the movie was going to be made Jarre's original script was drastically changed to the point where only Lewis Colick, the writer who worked on re-writes, got the only writing and story credit. According to fans of Kevin Jarre who read his original script, not a single word from it stayed in the final film and his script was lot more darker and violent than the film. Same thing happened to Jarre's original scripts for films like Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985) and The Devil's Own (1997). See more »

Judgment Night was on TV last night, i began watching it and it had to be one of the most gripping movies ive ever seen. The movie starts off with 4 friends in their 20's taking a luxury van out to watch a boxing match, them being stuck in traffic decide to take a turn into a bad,bad neighbourhood.After this, the movie is in non stop suspence for one whole hour,with terrific acting and a very good script, Judgment night had to me one of my all time favourite action movies of all time. Although predictable at times, that didnt leave this film from being a top notch action/thriller. Although some of the scenes simply arent believable you just cant help notice how great the whole casts acting is,especially a top performance by Emilio Esetevez and Cuba Gooding, Jr. A Glitch with this movie is it starts to get downhill pretty much from an hour into the movie, the plot gets less believable and it just turns into too much.The ending was pretty simple. Cinematography was awesome in this flick, great camera angles and dark scenes. I simply ask for you to watch this, many says it copies many other films, i couldnt care less, Judgment night had to be one of the greatest action sequences ive ever seen, i definantley reccomend you watch it despite its predictibility,unbelievable scenes and stretched out plot. Here are my ratings for JUDGMENT NIGHT
out of 5 stars (*)= half a star.
Acting - ****(*)
Actors - ****
Cinema - ****(*)
Sound- **** (*)
Overall- ****(*) (4 and a half out of 5 stars)
