Audience Reviews for The Real McCoy


The Real McCoy has one of the most impossible storylines around. Kim Basinger doing her best while Val Kilmer farts through the bad script.

Steven Vincent Gee

Super Reviewer

kind of touching in a corny way. this movie took itself too seriously, but kim and val do the best they can.


as far as acting goes, you won't see anything spectacular in this. it is an entertaining action movie though. there are some slower spots but it's nothing drastic. i liked Kim Basinger in this; she was a very strong female lead. the ending was a bit outrageous, if not completely unbelievable, but it creates a happy ending. it's entertaining.
