Warner Archive impresses with Judgment Night, The Prize and Dark of the Sun | AndersonVision
Judgment Night seems similar to a handful of films released in the 1990s. It was almost a subgenre of movies focused on suburban types facing criminals in the ghetto. Denis Leary leads a gang full of no-names and Everlast against the majesty of Estevez & Piven. Cuba Gooding Jr gets to steal the show for the second half, but it's a very meandering film for the most part. At times, it feels almost like a suburban dad paranoia nightmare of what the Chicago ghetto must have been like in the early 90s. Just one wrong turn home from a Bulls game and Jeremy Piven's tiny ass is getting thrown off a roof.
