Overview

A stranger pulled into a deadly scheme races against time to save his daughter in this thriller. Gene Watson Johnny Depp is an accountant who comes to L.A. with his ten-year-old daughter Lynn Courtney Chase to attend a funeral. On the street, Gene and Lynn are pulled aside by Mr. Smith Christopher Walken and Ms. Jones Roma Maffia, who flash what look like police badges and usher them into a van. Gene soon discovers that he's been kidnapped, and his captors have an unusual demand -- if Gene does not murder Gov. Eleanor Grant Marsha Mason within 75 minutes, his daughter will be killed. Gene now has just an hour and a quarter to tip off the authorities, spare Gov. Grant, and find out what Smith and Jones are trying to do, along with saving his daughter's life. He finds a much-needed ally in one-legged shoe-shine man Huey Charles S. Dutton. Most of the action in Nick of Time occurs in "real time," meaning that the passage of time on screen matches that of real life, as the frequent shots of clocks and watches will attest.

    a great johnny depp movie, but i don't reccomend it be the first one you see

    it's a great johnny depp movie, and of course it doesn't sound too good scince it's R for violence and lenguage, but the violence isn't too graphic, (secret window is worse) but the lenguage, there is sort of a problem. i would still reccomend you to see this one after the order of johnny depp movies in the list below.
