NICK OF TIME (1995 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Nick of Time’s largest script flaw is the impossibility of Gene Watson’s assignment, the time boundary for completion of job, and Mr. Smith’s seeming ‘leniency’ with Gene Watson as he dallies in completing the assignment. But, all of this adds a certain tenseness to the movie that moves it along. Watch for a very young Courtney Chase who plays Gene Watson’s daughter, Lynn.

Storyline

Kill the state governor and save your daughter’s life or choose not to kill the state governor and lose your daughter becomes the impossible choice given to Gene Watson (Johnny Depp).

Yes. It’s worth watching to see some of Johnny Depp’s early artistic efforts.
