Starring Johnny Depp, Christopher Walken, Roma Maffia, Charles S. Dutton
Directed by John Badham
Writer:  Patrick Sheane Duncan

Product Description
The clock is ticking for Johnny Depp in Nick of Time, a twist-filled, race-against-time thriller directed by John Badham (Drop Zone, Saturday Night Fever). And indeed it is a race, filmed in "real time" so that onscreen events unfold minute by nail-biting minute as they would in real life. No sooner does accountant Gene Watson (Depp) arrive at L.A.'s Union station with his six-year-old daughter than he's plunged into a nightmare. Two shadowy strangers (Christopher Walken, Roma Maffia) separate Watson from his little girl, slap a gun into his hand and present a devil's bargain: kill a top government official before she leaves a nearby political rally... or never again see his beloved child.

The film, which has often been dismissed by critics as a typical thriller, deserves a second glance. The film's too quickly overlooked and forgotten, which is a shame considering how enjoyable it is to watch.       Starring a terrific cast headed by Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken, Nick of Time is a more character …

Nick Of Time
This certainly isn't the best film Depp or Walken have ever done, but its well worth your time and money. Set in real-time, Gene Watson (Johnny Depp) and his young daughter Lynn (Courtney Chase) arrive at the Amtrak station in LA, presumably for a business meeting Watson is scheduled for. Watching the new arrivals are Mr. Smith (Christopher Walken) and Ms. Jones (Roma Maffia from Disclosure), shady characters who are looking for someone at random to murder a woman for them.     They …
