      Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.

Movie Reviews

  • the result is a maudlin, rather predictable drama in which the plaintive musical score tugs at the heartstrings; Directed by Eric Styles, it is a modest affair, elevated by John Hurt's commitment to the role
    3 of 5 by Allan Hunter [The List Film (UK) ]
  • on paper, it's the perfect final film for John Hurt: a drama about a dying writer named after Dylan Thomas's funeral favourite ("Do not go gentle..."). In practice, it's more mawkish than melancholic
    2 of 5 by Ed Potton [The Times (UK) ]
  • John Hurt shines in final lead role; Sadly, he's the best thing in this over-sentimental drama about a gruff writer's final days in picture-perfect Portugal
    2 of 5 by Mike McCahill [The Guardian ]
  • John Hurt is terrific, of course, and astonishingly lacking in vanity; A former bon viveur with an acid tongue and a fondness for the kind of hats and scarves only the seriously arty can get away with, Hurt is pretty much playing himself
    3 of 5 by Andrew Lowry [Empire Magazine ]
  • a fond farewell to a much-loved legend; While somewhat trifling as a work of cinema, Eric Styles' drama "That Good Night" will for many rank as a must-see simply because it features the very last lead performance by the truly great Sir John Hurt
    by Neil Young [The Hollywood Reporter ]
