The killer may find his target, but Color of Night fails to hit the nail on the head by a frustrating margin.

The plot gets so convoluted and farfetched that you still may be scratching your head after the denouement, but you probably won't be bored.

This is so awful it can't be missed.

I'm tempted to go ahead and explain just exactly how transparent -- and implausible -- this mystery is. But then I don't want to spoil it for people who are even worse than I am at this sort of thing. People like Forrest Gump.

It's a psycho-erotic thriller with more twists and shocks than the rattlesnake which, at one point, leaps out at star Bruce Willis-from a location we won't describe. (It would spoil one of the several dozen surprises.)

You thought brawny Bruce Willis couldn't play a brainy psychologist? You were right.

John Hartl
Seattle Times

Mundane sex scenes, a standard L.A. car chase and Bakula's outrageously gory death scene (which plays like an unintentional parody) are all part of the predictable script.

Color of Night and North represent the nadir of Willis' plummeting film career. He can be a most engaging talent; his script selection of late has been awful.

The Color of Night tries for the same mix of black humor and clever plotting, but misses by a wide margin. It'll have you laughing at it, not with it, and if you pay the full $6, it'll have you, well, seeing red.

It starts out as a good movie when Bruce's character takes over a college mate's psychology practice when he is murdered. It all goes down hill when… More

Quite possibly the worst film I have ever scene. It doesn't work as a thriller, drama, romance or blockbuster, and is far too bad to be "so bad… More

A sexy thriller that is very twisted and not very exciting
David Sayers
A dire film from a period where Willis was a bit lost at sea (see also 'Striking Distance'). This tries to jump on the erotic thriller bandwagon… More
