Sex, violence and secrecy can make a volatile on-screen combination, but not this time.
July 26, 2014
As befits the title, it dead-ends long before it's over.

Viewers who arrive at the movie five minutes late and leave five minutes early will avoid the setup and payoff for the preposterous twist that spoils this lively, intelligent remake of 1948's The Big Clock.

While the film's behind-the-scenes look into the world of Washington bureaucracy is appealing, the movie is a complete letdown as a thriller, dissolving into implausible silliness.
January 26, 2006
A very convincing nightmare, and if Hackman gives too rounded a performance to approach the omniscient evil of Laughton's original, Patton assumes the mantle as Brice's henchman, while Costner confirms his arrival as a star.

This is a major treat.

It's too bad Alfred Hitchcock didn't live long enough to put Kevin Costner into a movie, because Costner is exactly the kind of leading man Hitchcock liked.

No Way Out may take about half its runtime to finally get the story moving, but when it does, the audience is treated to a grand thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

A superior example of the genre, a film in which a simple situation grows more and more complex until it turns into a nightmare not only for the hero but also for everyone associated with him.

Kevin Costner-Gene Hackman thriller is twistier than the halls of the Pentagon.

It's the kind of intricately plotted suspense film with juicy secondary parts (Will Patton, George Dzundza, Iman, Howard Duff) that used to be churned out in the 1940s.
March 30, 2009
No Way Out is an effective updating and revamping of the 1948 film noir classic The Big Clock.

A stylish political thriller animated by its incisive portrait of secrecy, lying and power in Washington, D.C.
July 25, 2003
Filme tenso, com bom ritmo e boas atuações. A revelação final não faz muita diferença no contexto geral - ao contrário, abre margem para alguns buracos no roteiro.
| Original Score: 3/5
