Robert De Niro,
Robert DeNiro and Jessica Lange are the most impossible couple. He's a failed lawyer. She's a common waitress. Together they get in a downward spiral, as they can't seem to deal with their problems. The lawyer just failed winning a case in court against a famous boxing organizer and he wants revenge by catching the organizer on his own territory: boxing. Although he knows nothing about boxing, with his fine talk he finds the help of a couple of people like the brother of his new enemy. But the relationship with his waitress doesn't make things double as hard.Written by
There is some good acting in Night and the City, but the movie overall is unremarkable.
I picked this movie up at the video store last week, only because Robert De Niro is in it. I have to admit, even though I see a lot of movies, I don't think I had heard of this movie until I picked it up that evening, even though I had probably skimmed across the cover on the box while browsing at the video store.
I found this movie pretty hard to watch, mainly because De Niro's character Harry Fabian is not very likeable and I tried very hard to like or respect this character, but I only felt sorry for the guy and I found this depressing. However, De Niro and some of the supporting actors are quite good from an acting perspective in some scenes.
I gave this movie a 6 out of 10. I'd only recommend this movie to De Niro fans.
