Audience Reviews for No Mercy

  • Aug 10, 2008
    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.
