Nick of Time (1995)

 2 / 5 Jul '09
Tagline: Within 90 minutes, someone is going to die... And the clock is ticking.
Directed by: John Badham
Written by: Patrick Sheane Duncan
Actors include: Johnny Depp, Christopher Walken, Roma Maffia
Genre: Thriller, Crime, Drama
Length: 90 minutes
Banned: Nope
Country: USA

The story is about a young man named Gene (Johnny Depp) who has a daughter that he loves, which is why he was targeted by some thugs (including Christopher Walken and Nip/Tuck's Liz). The idea is that they kidnapped his daughter (which he always complaining about in a ridiculous Nicolas Cage style of acting) so in exchange he must murder a Governor. He only has a bit of time...90 minutes to kill her or else his daughter is toast (she was annoying anyhow, I say he should have just cut his losses). This story was pretty much laughably bad and all of the erm "turns" could be seen a mile away, cliche city! I can think of few thrillers that felt more lazy than this one, definitely not one I'll ever watch again nor would I recommend this to anyone. There's a reason this one doesn't get mentioned much...a rather big reason...

Availability:  On DVD
