Directed by Tony Scott, fresh off the success off Top Gun (1986) took on this action thriller based upon a novella by Jim Harrison. It's a straight forward film, but it has a good cast, with a lead who was at the top of his game 21 years ago, and it's plot is good for a well worn revenge cliche. It has retired fighter pilot Michael J. "Jay" Cochran (Kevin Costner) who goes to Mexico for a holiday, accepting an invitation to spend time with his friend Tiburon "Tibby" Mendez (Anthony Quinn) at his mansion. They spend most of the time playing tennis and shooting, however it turns out Tibby is really a powerful crime lord, and his much younger wife Miryea (Madeleine Stowe) is unhappy in her marriage, primarily because Tibby doesn't want children and that would spoil Miryea's looks. So, Miryea begins a secret affair with Jay, even though Jay is very cautious of the situation. They make a rendezvous in a cabin miles away belonging to Jay. But, Tibby follows them there, sending Miryea to a whorehouse, and leaving Jay for dead. But, he isn't dead, and he wants to get even with Tibby and find Miryea. It's a quite moving film for a revenge thriller, but it has Scott's usual glossy, sun-soaked visuals throughout. Costner's great, (always an underrated actor, unfairly criticised), but the great Quinn is a standout, switching from kindly old man to psychopath in a split second.
