Synopsis


Next of Kin
When his brother is murdered, a policeman is caught between his devotion to the law and his family's desire for revenge in this action drama. Patrick Swayze plays Truman Gates, who left his backwoods Appalachian home for life as a Chicago police officer. When his brother is killed by a gangster, Truman is determined to seek legal retribution. His older brother Briar (Liam Neeson) has different ideas, however, and travels to the city to seek old-fashioned vigilante justice. Truman must now choose between his family's belief in mountain justice and the duties of his job. Though the film is not particularly action-packed, director John Irvin does provide the expected gunplay and macho confrontations. However, despite a surprisingly distinguished cast (also including Helen Hunt and Michael J. Pollard), little distinguishes the film from numerous other revenge stories with a similar outline. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    Its a movie about family and what you would do for your family ... but its also an action flick from the 80's that has Swayze and Neeson ... also it has Bill Paxton and Ben Stiller ... The Transfer is decent a lot better than the dvd the sound is to ... but there is no special feature ... bare bones that is the only draw back ... but if your a fan buy it !!!

    I like seeing popular stars in early roles - like Ben Stiller as a mobster's son!

    It is one of Patrick Swayzie's lesser known movies but it is a good one.
