Movie Info

Kevin Costner plays an ex-pilot who visits the posh Mexican estate of an old associate (Anthony Quinn) "Tibey" Mendes, for a bit of R & R. Tibey has turned into a very powerful Godfather type who rules his world and those who touch it. Costner can't help but notice his old friend's incredibly beautiful young wife (Madeleine Stowe) and before long they're involved in some sizzling hoochie-coo at the risk of being discovered by Mendes. Mendes eventually catches on and exacts a painful and cruel

One of the earliest, perhaps the first, movie in the phase of his career where Kevin Costner stopped making relatively intriguing choices.

gritty, tense, and easily worth watching.

Narratively stunted but handsomely directed tale of, well, REVENGE!

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. Sleep with a mob boss' beautiful wife? What could go wrong with that? Isn't there a rerun of Ice Road Truckers on the History channel instead?

Apparently, there is no law enforcement in Mexico. or thats what this movie wants me to believe.

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.
