Critic Reviews for No Mercy
A passionate film noir that depends heavily upon Mr. Gere to give it credence, and Mr. Gere delivers.May 20, 2003 | Rating: 3.5/5
Pearce pads out his plot with lots of borrowed bits ... but the borrowings don't have any resonance of their own: they simply hang on the story like empty thematic husks.
A standard-issue cop thriller that amounts to Beverly Hills Cop in a bad mood.
An above-average film noir, and its creepy feeling for the back streets of New Orleans and the sultry evil of its red-light suburbs got under my skin.January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Count me among those who would be happy never to see another starring role for Gere, except maybe as Felix in a remake of The Odd Couple.
It's clear right off the bat that filmmaker Richard Pearce isn't looking to deliver a typical, run-of-the-mill '80s cop thriller...October 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for No Mercy
Aug 10, 2008On 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.Cassandra M Super Reviewer
Mar 20, 2007Exciting 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.Dean M Super Reviewer
