One does not go into this film with any expectations after seeing the ridiculous trailer not to mention the pre-release bad word of mouth or the fact that the production nearly cost the director his life. The stress of finishing this production not to mention battling an NC-17 put this guy in the hospital after a severe heart attack. The editing and re-shoots were completed by an uncredited George P. Cosmatos (director of Tombstone and Rambo: First Blood Part II).
Color of Night follows Dr. Bill Capa who suffers from his own case of the blues after a patient of his kills themselves. Oh the story is so run of the mill even for the 90's and plays like a Cinemax late night softcore porn.
Watch for lame key scenes like Bruce Willis and Scott Bakula racing mountain bikes, Ruben Blades stereotypical L.A. Hispanic Cop, Willis' Capa opening the mailbox only to have a rattlesnake fly out at him, and a batch of crazies that are so over the top you'll think you're watching a comedy the likes of The Naked Gun.
Plus you'll be able to see the ending coming 10,000 miles away and hold on for a hilarious car chase sequence that is probably intended to be intense and thrilling.
In a nutshell, this whole film (produced by Willis' best friend and Jane March's husband) was the opportunity for him to show his dick on-screen. The sex scenes are so not erotic or sexy in any way especially when Jane March's Rose asks Capa what color her nipples are. Did I mention Capa is color blind when it comes to the "color" red? Whofffa! What a gem.
