"...The plot is neat....A wild ride with enough forward momentum to hurtle you over the plot holes."

Product Description:

In John Badham's NICK OF TIME, Johnny Depp stars as Gene Watson, a mild-mannered, widowed accountant, and the father of six-year-old Lynn (Courtney Chase). While in Los Angeles's Union train station, they are abducted by a mysterious couple posing as police officers, Mr. Smith (Christopher Walken) and Ms. Jones (Roma Maffia). They give Gene a loaded gun and these orders: assassinate the "flaming liberal" governor of California (Marsha Mason) within the next 90 minutes, or they will kill his beloved daughter. Gene reluctantly agrees, and he is taken to the Bonaventure Hotel where the governor is making an appearance. Tension mounts as the clock ticks and Gene must outwit his conniving kidnappers. Shot in real time, the action of the movie is documented in the actual 90 minute running time of the movie. As Gene faces his gruesome task, minutes slip away, creating a palpable tension and a breathtaking reminder of every agonizing second. Christopher Walken is at his devilish best, wickedly tormenting the innocent hero. Reminiscent of Hitchcockian dilemmas, Gene is an ordinary man trapped in an extraordinary situation, forced to act before it is too late.
