While the predictable lesson -- that justice isn't cut and dry -- clogs the film's gears by the last reel, at least the first half of the movie has some lively story telling. Full Review

But Night Falls on Manhattan is also oddly listless. It doesn't often live up to the doomy eloquence of its title. Full Review

One of the most refreshing things about this movie is the manner in which it combines genres in unexpected ways. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
A string of unlikely events and coincidences set off Night Falls, and Lumet makes them believable the old-fashioned way: through interaction with a screen full of strongly drawn, fully dimensioned, psychologically valid characters. Full Review
