The Long Kiss Goodnight sees Renny Harlin direct the action and Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson trade barbs and shoot bullets in this Shane Black scripted action film.

Davis plays a mother who discovers that she’s actually a finely honed killer with memory loss. Who knew that amnesia, hitmen (and women) and Christmas were so well suited?

Black scored a record $4 million for The Long Kiss Goodnight – which was Renny Harlin and Geena Davis’s follow-up to the pirate flop, Cutthroat Island. The 1996 festive thriller might have disappointed at the box office, grossing $33 million at the US box office and $89 million globally from a $65 million budget, but it’s brilliant fun and exceptionally well executed.

Geena Davis was one of the first female action heroes and she’s great in this explosive thriller – seek it out.
