Botched TV neo-noir
7 June 2002 | by sidmsdwSee all my reviews

This was a great opportunity to bring some great old-fashioned film noir to the great wasteland that is the made-for-tv movie industry. Too bad John Wells' re-working of an old script from a previous generation is so lacking in character development or even at times coherence. The cinematography is sub-Ridley Scott, pure noir imitation. "The Nightman" does boast some good acting from both the beautiful Joanna Kerns and the fetching Jenny Robertson but this movie's not even a guilty pleasure. Maybe good for laughs if you catch it coming home from a party loaded to the gills.
