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.
