underrated movie
(** 1/2):
**1/2 (out of four)

Fairly interesting, but muddled thriller about four guys who venture out in Chicago to see a boxing match. They make a wrong turn after the fight and end up in very dangerous area running for their lives.
this movie was good, not great but good, good acting from the good guys, decent acting from the bad guys, slight humor and a good edge of your seat suspenseful storyline. it's one of those types of movies that you don't watch on a regular basis like some but you do buy it to save it for a rainy day, it is indeed watchable and worthy of spending money on, and very much more enjoyable then some movies that have came out this decade, and it's good enough (on a more personal note) to make me feel a bit nostalgic and makes me miss the 90's
REVIEW#217 Has a pretty cool movie idea and good actors put things are blown out of proportion.
This movie isn't great but it is a good and fun watch. The actors do well and the story is very interesting. A few scenes could have been cut a little but other than that its a decent movie.
I wasn't bored, but rather pretty engrossed by the storyline. Consisting on non-stop conflict and good acting, I enjoyed this one. There were areas where it could use improvement, but overall I found this thriller to be a pleasant surprise.
Judgment Night is an action adventure with a very narrow and common story with few thrills and no twists. Its strait forward but somewhat enjoyable.

Four friends get together to go to a boxing match but make a bad decision while stuck in traffic. While running late and missing the match they get off the highway looking for a shortcut on surface streets but get a lot more than they bargained for. When they hit a pedestrian they get caught up in a gang scuffle and become witnesses of murder. Together they must find a way to flee and manage to survive the night.

There are some pretty good acting for such a simple plot. Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jeremy Piven, Stephen Dorff, are the four friends and they were all alright althought I enjoyed Emilio the most. Then you have Denis Leary as a gangster leader and proficient bad guy. He has a few cronies but he was the only one worth watching. If you have seen Rescue me then you've seen his character. A ruthless and cocky loud mouth who thinks he's in control and he entertaining in his film also. All the acting is decent, bit nothing amazing.

Well I haven't seen this one for a long time but I saw it on encore so I figured why not. The overall feeling I got was slight amusement and a little thrill but nothing to call home about. It was kind of a weak story but the acting and directing made up for that. I don't think I would watch it again but who knows. This is no must see by any means but if you have the chance its an OK way to pass the time.
