The best movie song ever sung: Take a Look at Me Now!
April 30, 2018
The celebrity of the euphonious Oscar-winning theme song by Phil Collins precedes this Taylor Hackford's middling remake of a 1947 film noir with the scene updated to the seedy underworld of football politics, torrid romantic entanglements and sports betting.

An 80's neo noire that fails to live up to expectations as a remake of the exceptional Out of the Past. The setup lacks conviction even resorting to deploying a prolonged car chase sequence to keep the pulse going. The second act features beautiful scenery complete with Mayan ruins and decent chemistry between Jeff Bridges and his mark, played amiably by Rachel Ward. The third act disappoints with a casual resolution but by then we've lost interest in the plot. James Woods, normally an exceptional actor, needed a villain with more layers, more complexity. The soundtrack and those Mayan ruins are worth one viewing, however.

Felt like a love novel brought to screen, but the two leads were nice.

I'm sure the original is superior, which I hadn't known existed before I watched this remake.

Pretty rad little film noir. Great score and buildup of tension. I found it really hard to care for Ward, as she was such a weasel, but I guess that's what makes for some of the best noir; untrustworthy dames.

Inferior remake of OUT OF THE PAST. Rachel Ward is no Jane Greer.

Looking to be very sexy, however this did not live up the expectations. The couple had good tension, but they got 'together' too soon in film and it didn't feel like they had a real connection. Too many people dying, and it didn't make a lot of sense why either... BUT still, a pretty decent movie, good chemistry.

The movie has been shot at exotic Latin American location with firing chemistry between Bridges and ward. Initial pace of the movie is very captivating however as it passing and Terry familiarizes himself with Jessie's love, movie somehow loses its beat. There is not much clarification what is the direction of the movie. And it does not stop there near the climax it gets us confused about who is the bad guy and whoever it is, is he really bad? And that is how it ends.

When the best thing you can say about a mystery is it's not awful then it's not really worth watching either......except for the sexy Rachel Ward.

Sexiest Jeff Bridges Movie EVER!!!

Um filme considerado "kitsch" para alguns, da época de Top Gun, Oficial e Cavalheiro e Dirty Dancing, que junta o crime ao romance, mas a mistura não me convenceu. Um remake de Out of the Past considerado um dos melhores filmes "negros" de sempre (este fiquei curiosa para ver, um clássico de 1947).

"Against All Odds", un re-make de "Out Of The Past", es un intento por resucitar el género "noir" a partir de la estética tipo "Miami Vice" que impuso Michael Mann en la década de los 80. Taylor Hackford no es Michael Mann y salvo una buena actuación de Jeff Bridges, una excelente banda sonora y una magnífica secuencia sobre una carrera, la película nunca llega a despegar.

What is sacrifice?? Better yet, would you run away from everything to protect someone you love?? Never thought of such question before i saw this movie and nowadays its get me thinking. Back then i liked the movie cause of the club scene..."Curiosity". Damn good movie i believe never got the credit it deserves.
