Critic Reviews for Night Watch

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Lucille Fletcher's Night Watch isn't the first average stage play to be turned into a better than average film. Astute direction and an improved cast more than help.

Tired, old-fashioned thriller.

Elizabeth Taylor, and about time, has got herself a good picture and a whodunit at that

May 9, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Who could ask for anything less?

October 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Filled with red herrings and featuring a bloody "twist" ending, Night Watch fails to create much of an atmosphere.

March 24, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Less than satisfactory thriller.
