Goofs

Before Fallon guns down Teddy, one of the questions he asks him is, "All you had to do was keep the merchandise moving Teddy, but what was the problem?" We see Fallon's face while he's talking but the way his mouth is moving doesn't match those lines that are heard. See more »

As dark as it is gritty...
9 July 2004 | by whoTheFuqRyouSee all my reviews

I saw this when I was like 12 years old and am watching it as I type. Judgment Night is like a flip of a coin - one minute we're in the suburbs where it's peaceful where everyone's business is their own without a worry, then you go to the inner city where there's a slim chance if you intervene in someone else's you might be liable to be shot for it. Judgment Night gets its fuel from its cast with most the cast which were given likeable characters and a very plausible villain in Denis Leary, his goons do good for the little screen time they get. Of course Stephen Dorff, Sheen's brother and Cuba all did a good job. The script might be "basic" but there were interesting twists and plenty of memorable lines from Denis Leary especially his one about whiners. The photography was really good in the transition. Don't you see how ill it can get when you're out w/ your crew and you just so cross paths with the wrong person???
