Rating: The Good – 63.2
Genre: Thriller
Duration: 124 mins
Director: Tony Scott
Stars: Kevin Costner, Anthony Quinn, Madeleine Stowe

An interesting Tony Scott thriller starring Kevin Costner as a retired fighter pilot Jay Cochran, who heads off to Mexico to take advantage of an offer of hospitality from Mendez (Anthony Quinn), the head of a drug cartel with whom he struck up a friendship years earlier. Of course, Cochran eventually gets to see Mendez’ nasty side when he gets involved with the drug lord’s wife. It’s an original enough story and, because it was made before Scott became fond of hyperactive editing and slow motion shots, it’s evenly paced throughout. Moreover, because the revenge plot is developed patiently, the violence tends to creep up on you which along with its graphic nature ensures it packs a fairly powerful punch. That said, just when you think it’s going to boil over, it kind of fizzles out resulting in an ending which is somewhat anti-climatic.
