Some takes on the title Color of Night (1994): The title Color of Night is related to Dr Bill Capa's (Bruce Willis's) colorblindness. He sees grey rather than red. A humorous extract from Users Reviews, "And what the heck is the deal with this random title? They must have picked it out of the hat labeled "stupid movie titles"". An extract from Qwipster's Movie Reviews by Vince Leo, (clearly not a fan), "The real "color of night" can be seen when you turn off your television set, which is exactly what you should do when the movie with that title rears its ugly head on it".

A film should entertain and a thriller should thrill - this one does that!
Most people that comment here take the film and story serious as if it has to have taken place or something, to begin with! Look, I saw this film late at night and as a big Bruce Willis fan I liked it. And believe me, I'm not a moron, there's nothing wrong with me. I just liked this film, it was good entertainment (just what a film is supposed to do), good thrilling, (just what a thriller should do!) and good acting. Nice of Brad Dourif to drop by in this film, I remembered him from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Billy) immediately.
Now for the story, I think character building was adequate. Of course you must not think too much. No psychiatrist would visit their patients at home and there is more that doesn't add up, but never the less, I was surprised with the end. People are getting killed and the killer is out there, really close to the main character. You really don't know who did it, all though you have your hunches. And that makes a thriller worth while, I think. And about eroticism, this film has stuff for him and her. Bruce really looks great in jeans and you get to see him naked here! And Jane March is stunning, also naked. Beautiful sex-scenes and nicely edited. The film has a nice chase too, a Mercedes SL against a Camaro or Trans Am.
Advice: see this film and judge for yourself! (and write it down here!) Switch your senses off and just let yourself be entertained. You'll see, you'll like it!
