Wednesday 29th June 2011

Director: Stephen Hopkins
Year: 1993
Stars: Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr, Stephen Dorff, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Leary

I've seen this before, but it was years ago. I was about 15, and have pretty fond memories of the movie. I think that's mostly because I ended up enjoying watching something I wasn't really expecting to be very good - and it actually wasn't bad.

15 years later, and as Judgment Night appeared on TV, I figured it was time to give it a re-watch. I could remember the basic premise of the movie, but very few of the details. The film follows four men who get lost on their way to a boxing match, and end up getting themselves further and further into trouble with a local gang.

The movie went straight to video in the UK, but I still quite enjoyed it. Part of this may well be to do with my 15-year old memories of it, but it's still a lot better than many movies out there.

Rating: 4 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
