Synopsis


No Way Out
No Way Out is told in flashback as Naval officer Tom Farrell (Kevin Costner) is grilled by his superiors regarding a recent "unpleasantness." While at a Washington party, Tom meets Susan Atwel (Sean Young), and they're soon sharing a steamy love scene in the back of a limo (marvelously parodied in 1993's Hot Shots! Part Deux). Several months pass before Tom meets Susan again; he discovers she's the mistress of the US Secretary of Defense David Brice (Gene Hackman). When Susan is murdered by Brice, his loyal aide (Will Patton) dutifully destroys the evidence and invents the fallacious theory that a KGB mole was responsible. Tom is assigned to locate that mole -- a perilous situation, since Tom knows that no such mole exists, but must go along with the charade since he was the last person who was seen with Susan. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Great Edition of Forgotten gem

    Though this was rather popular when it came out, it’s been a bit forgotten in years since. It came out right near the beginning of Kevin Costner’s amazing run at both the box office and with critics. It’s a rather Hitchcockian thriller that preys on the fears of the culture of its era. This shout factory release looks great, much better than I expected an old catalogue title to look without an expensive new scan.

    One of Costner’s finest roles and the one that made him a leading man. Gene Hackman was also really good in this political thriller.

    Awesome thriller/suspense movie that still has me hooked to this day. Always a joy to watch Hackman and Costner and cast doing their thing. Who is the good guy again?

    This movie is an example of the talent for moviemaking that we don't have today. It has a very good plot and it has action and intrigue from beginning to end.
