This is Dani, the long kiss goodnight

“The Long Kiss Goodnight” was an interesting movie to say the least. In this movie we see more of the good cop bad cop that we saw in “Training Day”. Although in “The Long Kiss Goodnight” it is hard to tell here who was the good cop and who was the bad cop at first. When they used the term assassin I always think of something negative so I thought that of the female character. What is definite in this movie though is that the female character is more of the mentor especially when the black cop says “I’ll see you when you rescue me”. This shows that she was more dominant and also possibly intelligent in thinking differently than the other characters would think. She was able to sneak around the people who were trying to catch her and kill her. As for what we talked about in class such as a family cop, indeed she was. In the beginning she is very involved with her family and as her memory starts coming back she slips for a moment and then comes back to reality about her daughter. I wish the movie had ended more with showing her reunite with her family because I personally thought that it was an important part of the story. I mean 8 years of it was with the man and this daughter that she wasn’t sure of the father. As for by the book, she definitely was not. She was doing things more of her way or the highway and they high way wasn’t in sight. I felt that she didn’t really have a rulebook to go by either because it was as if she was fighting what was supposed to be the good guys.
