Audience Reviews for Revenge
Remember this star vehicle from 1990? No? Well the reason why, except for the high production values and the star power, is because it plays like a Youtube vid making fun of movies like this played straight, the unbelievable happening at every turn.

Apparently, there is no law enforcement in Mexico. or thats what this movie wants me to believe.More
A tragic love story with an unexpected ending for me.
I know many find Costner a little cheesy, but I happen to find he has been in some really good films, this one included.
All in all a pretty decent film.
I remember seeing this many years ago & hating it well I just saw it for the second time and it's not that bad, Has some good moments & the music score is beautifulMore
