Kiss of Death is a 1994 crime thriller film starring David Caruso, Samuel L. Jackson, and Nicolas Cage. The film is a very loosely based remake of the 1947 film noir classic of the same name that starred Victor Mature, Brian Donlevy, and Richard Widmark. It was screened out of competition at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival. Like the original Kiss of Death, the film was released by 20th Century Fox.

Story

Jimmy Kilmartin is an ex-con living in Astoriamarker in the New York Citymarker borough of Queensmarker, trying to stay clean and raising a family with his wife Bev. But when his cousin Ronnie causes him to take a fall for driving an illegal transport of stolen cars, a police officer named Calvin Hart is injured and Jimmy lands back in prison. In exchange for an early release, he is asked to help bring down a local crime boss named Little Junior Brown.

Jimmy's wife is killed in a freak accident and his cousin Ronnie is beaten to death by Little Junior. With Jimmy still refusing to testify or "name names," years pass in Sing Sing without an early release. By the time Jimmy finally agrees to work with District Attorney Frank Zioli, his daughter barely knows him.

Jimmy remarries and attempts to renew a relationship with his child. But he is sent undercover by Detective Hart to work with Junior and infiltrate his operations. As soon as Little Junior kills an undercover federal agent with Jimmy watching, the unscrupulous district attorney and the feds further complicate his life. He must take down Junior or face the consequences.

Cast



Notes

The official copyright date on this film is 1994, which also the same year as the MPAA's record. However IMDB and most commercial databases list the date as 1995. This is likely due to a "delayed release"-this film was shot and completed in 1993-94 and due for a 1994 release that was pushed back to 1995.
