On the surface, this film, which I like, is like dozens of other revenge-the-death-of-a-cop-partner stories. But the saving grace of the movie is the characters, and some of the dialogue.

Spoilers in the following

Eddie Jilette is a tough cop. A tough Chicago cop. But what distinguishes the film that his Captain is tougher and nastier. In a later scene in the film, the captain and Eddie are in an airport where, in the Men's washroom, after making sure that they're alone, the captain gives Eddie a weapon to kill the villain, and expects him to use it. In most such films, a tough cop usually has a captain who's either a politician or a wimp. How refreshing!

The film also has a nice touch. Eddie rents all the rooms of a hotel in Algiers. The only inhabitants were the clerk and a cat. Eddie tells the clerk to beat it, because he's expecting a showdown battle there. Shortly before the battle commences, we see the cat leave the building.

One I've watched several times and one that's in my library.

Exciting action-thriller of a Chicago policeman (Richard Gere) heads for Louisiana to track down his partner's killer. There he falls in love with an illiterate Cajun beauty (Kim Basinger). Basinger pouts, Gere smoulders, the bayous steam.

80's cop-as-avenger flick with then rising stars, Kim Basinger and Richard Gere, set in New Orleans and environs featuring some sweaty PG-13 love action. Some of the dialogue is classic, especially the two references to freckles.

Great performances by Gere and Basinger. Lots of screan charisma. Story was a bit tired but the setting was great. Believeable.

(1986) No Mercy
THRILLER

Chicago cop Eddie Jillette (Richard Gere) trying to nab criminal mastermind for killing his partner in cold blood, but has to resort finding the witness first who happens to be a hostess by the name of Michel Duval(Kim Basinger) who's somewhere in New Orleans.

The implausible set up is used only as a backdrop to the New Orleans environment, which includes the parades as well as it's customs. The first of 2 movies Basinger and Gere star together. There's only like one good gunfire sequence sometime during the end which is quite tame to what one can see these days.

2 out of 4 stars

A man looking for revenge follows his only lead through the murderer's girlfriend. The whole films is nothing but a vehicle for two hot stars of the eighties, and plays on sexual tension strategies that were laid out by the 39Steps, failing miserably as both characters are obnoxious and the film itself can only come across as cold.

classic 80's action! Bound together in the Louisiana Bayou by handcuffs, HOT
June 28, 2011
A passionate film noir that depends heavily upon Mr. Gere to give it credence, and Mr. Gere delivers.

I liked this movie. The action wasn't bad, and the performances were pretty good as well. Who would've thought that Richard Gere could do action. It's satisfactory.
